The water is not draining on my whirlpool top loader washing machine stylemaster no. 4217142 rev. a Would the pump need replacing or could it be something else? Thanks Linda


A faulty pump would not enable the water to drain but usually, the first component to wear out is the clutch assembly for the brake. When the machine goes into the "spin mode", there is a clutch that "grabs" the drive shaft and tightens to start spinning the tub.

This is a mechanical device that may break after a few years of use.

If the clutch does not get tight against the driveshaft of the transmission, then the tub will not spin fast enough to provide enough spinning force to empty the water from the tub.

If you know of a good "all-purpose" mechanic "friend", maybe they can change the part. Before ordering the part, it is advisable to empty as much of the water from the tub as you can manually. Go to some of the online videos such as "repairclinic.com" or most any appliance repair web site.
(Google Appliance Parts).

Always check the websites guarantees for returning parts.
There are at least 5 or 6 sites to select from, just find the ones that give you the best return policy.


Enter your washing machine model information.
Don't order the parts just yet...you want to watch several of the various web sites videos, so you can quickly get to the source by disassembling the parts you need to gain access to the clutch first. 99% of the time, when you locate the part that is the clutch, you need to get a very close look to verify that it is actually broken. Sometimes it looks okay until you disassemble it as it may only have a crack causing the brake to not engage on to the drive shaft.

Once you verify that is "IS" the part that you need to order, then order it.

There are two methods suggested to change the part.
The easiest is to find the directions to remove the outer front and side panels of the machine so you can have easy access to the drive components. There are some screws holding the outer shell. Before removing the outer shell, unplug the machine and raise the entire lid assembly (the part that SNAPS in place and separates the top and the bottom of the machine.

When taking the parts loose. be sure to take pictures as you go so you have a quick reference as to what each part looked like before you disassembled it.

Make a written check list with respect to the sequence so that you can easily put the parts back in the proper order.

Good Luck and please send me a reply so that I know this helped you!

Washing machine will spin but not drain the water out


either an obstruction in your drain line or a bad pump

Machine will not empty water


Must be something in the pump. To verify simply lay the hose on drain hose down to floor level over a bucket. If no water comes out then your pump is blocked. In order to inspect for objects in the pump you must remove the cabinet to access the innards on this machine. Do not work from behind this machine. It is designed to be fixed in place. Flip up the controls and remove the cabinet. Get a pail to catch the water and remove the hoses to access the inside of the pump.

I have a Roper RTW4340SQ0 washer that leaks profusely when it fills and throughout the washing cycles. I've checked the water valve and all the hoses associated with it as well as the pump and all the...


This model is direct drive with a front mounted drain pump. The drain pump is THE most common leak location on these type washers! The pumps do NOT generally leak at the hoses, but from the impeller side between the pump and motor. There will be a telltale water mark on motor side of the pump shell.It can easily be fixed by popping the 2 retaining clips, removing the two drain hoses, and pulling off the old plastic pump, replacing it in the reverse order after cleaning the end of the motor shaft. Pumps run about 30 dollars. If you are sure this isn't the culprit, check for signs of leakage between the tub center and transmission, there is a tub gasket there. The tub itself, is not likey to leak, it is one piece with heat welded seams.Go to Youtube and search Whirlpool washing machine repairs, there are a number of instructional videos that show you exactly how to repair these machines and save yourself a lot of money. Incidentally Roper is built by Whirlpool, that's why I said search with that name.

Hope this sheds some light on the problem

Washing Machine wont drain as well as other problems!


Either the drain, filter, or screen is clogged somewhere. Check belts, pulley, agitator and tub bearings. Refere to this site for more info:

Washing machine will not drain. water wont drain


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.
