Question about Roper Washing Machines
Roper model: RAL6245BW1
The machine will fill with water, but when the cycle starts, it does nothing. The pump does pump all of the water out of the machine, but it does not wash or spin. I opened the machine and there was nothing that indicated it was a problem with the coupling or the transmission.
Its possible that the agitator that turns back and forth, to clean your clothes, is warn-out. I had the same problem with mine. If your agitator has a fabric softener piece on top of it, there should be a plastic circular clip, that you have to lift up, that removes the fabric softener piece. Once you remove that, there is a plastic cap, that covers the bolt, that secures the agitator, to the drum. After you remove the cap, you will see 4 plastic hooks, that grab to the inside lining teeth, of the agitator. If the 4 hooks are worn out or the teeth are worn out, then this is your problem of why it won't spin nor agitate. I put 2 small screws, one on each side of the clips, so that the clips stayed out, against the teeth, so that at least it would work, until you can replace the agitator. I hope this works for you.

If the cycle won't complete then either it's a problem with the timer or a cold-water supply problem:-
If your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer.
It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water.
