Question about Roper RAB5232E
The other day I put my usual load in and the water filled up like normal. The cylce-timer was moving only it was making a loud humming/buzzing sound, but no wash or spin would start. After realizing that is wasnt working, i took everything out and tried to run it again with no clothes. It kinda worked, only very loud and not normal. so i tried a small load and got the same result as when i put the larger load in. what do you think it could be???

if it wont drain , check your lid switch, check out your motor coupler, if it will not agitate and spin, replace your motor coupler, if it agitates and dont spin, replace your lid switch.
alot of times the washer will drain but we hurriedly cut it off when we hear noise or the water is out but it never spinned and so the clothes are soapy wet...

I am having the exact same problem with the same brand machine. I put in a load of clothes to soak till the morning, but in the morning, the washing machine would only fill, spin, and drain. The agitator would not wash the clothes, so they came out with the soap of course still crusted in.

Check out the drain pump, it is not uncommon stuff gets stuck in the impeller preventing it to do its work.
Also check out the drain filter and that the drain tube is not clogged. Very common causes of trouble in my experience and would give symptoms like you describe..
A good method to check if the output side is clear may seem a little gross but... take a deep breath and blow through the drain tube from the other end (taking whatever precautions you feel like).... It should be possible and if you can't, you know where the problem is.
