First remove the two screws that hold in the control panel and tip it back, then there two clips that the shell is locked onto undo them and pull the shell away from the unit. remember to shut off the power first. remove any wires that are hooked up aand the replace the pump. good luck

Not spin water


do you mean the lid switch is loose? 02 Control and Rear Panel Parts for Roper RAX4232PQ0

if it is broken -- you could bypass it 01 Top and Cabinet Parts for Roper RAX4232PQ0

take out the two screws on the top control panel edged and remove the panel - just tip it back-- see that squiggly metal piece in the edge -- use a flat screw driver and stick the end in the slot of the tip of the brass looking squiggly piece and relieve the tension. The top will now be loose and there is the lid switch

Tip

The washing machine leaks during both drain and spin cycle?


The most common possibility for this problem is as follows:-- Check the drain pump.if it looks loose then it needs to be refitted.if the drain pump looks bit worn out or cracked then it needs to be replaced.but if the drain pump check out OK.then its the fault of drain hose .Remove the hoses connected to both ends the pump.The hoses are cracked and it needs replacement. But if the pump is clean and clear and hoses are also seen clean then the other part to check is outer tub part, for that you will need to open the washer's main access panel and remove the rubber material hose connecting the pump .the hose is exactly connected to the bottom area of the outer tub. If you notice any blockage/clogging in that area you can remove it with the help of pliers.
If you are not able to remove the clog or if you can see but its seen in very inner area then you need to take the agitator out, after removing the agitator remove the top of the outer drum shield, and inner clothes tub. You will require some special tools to do the job in this case.
This will help.Thanks.

I have a Roper washer Model RAX4232PQ0 When it drains and spin cycle comes on it makes a very loud rubbing slash screeching sound and when we open it it smells like a burning smell Not rubber burning but...


Known problem:
A Failed switch Ark-Les part #8318084

Incident report on there website:

I have a Roper model #RAX4232PQ0 top-loading washing machine. The door switch wore out, short-circuited, and caught on fire. The machine continued to operate, so it took a little while to figure out where the smell was coming from. The failed switch is an Ark-Les part #8318084.

Washing machine wont wash screen says test.


Its a draining problem.the drain pump is either got blocked so needs cleaning or the drain pump is faulty and needs replacement. --------------------------- If your washer won't drain, check these:

It spins, but doesn't pump
It doesn't spin or pump
It pumps, but the water returns
It spins, but doesn't pump If your washer spins but doesn't pump the water out, the drain line is probably clogged. In many washers, a small sock or other piece of clothing can get between the clothes tub and the outer tub that holds the water. If the clothing gets between the tubs, it may then get into the drain hose that's attached to the pump--or even into the pump itself. If it's in the pump, you need to remove the hoses from the pump and pull the item out.

To remove the sock from the outer tub port, open the washer's main access panel and remove the large-diameter rubber hose that connects the pump to the bottom of the outer tub. Then, using needle-nose pliers, try to grab and remove the clothing through the port.

Sometimes you can't remove the stuck clothing from below. Then you have to remove the agitator, top of the outer drum shield, and inner clothes tub. This isn't easy to do--and you may need special tools--so you might be happier getting a qualified appliance repair technician to do the job.

If the drain line isn't plugged, the problem may be with your pump. Even if the pump appears to be turning, the internal impeller may be broken. If so, you need to replace the pump.

It doesn't spin or pump If your washer doesn't spin or pump water out but the motor is running, your washer probably has a frozen pump pulley. If so, you need to replace the pump. To check the pulley, remove the pump from the washer and try to rotate the pulley manually. If it doesn't turn freely--if it's frozen or stiff--replace it.

It pumps, but the water returns If the water that pumps out of the machine goes back into the machine after the spin cycle, your washer may be siphoning the water from a laundry tub that has a slow drain, back into the washer. The usual remedy for this is to improve the draining of the laundry tub. (Is something stuck in the drain?) Also, check for these problems:

  • If the drain hose reaches more than about 4 inches into the laundry tub, cut off the excess.


  • If your drain hose is lower than the washer's cabinet, install an air gap/siphon break assembly.
