Question about Roper RTW4300SQ Top Load Washer
When I manually turn the shaft it is spinning. Since it all appears to be off the same motor shaft, I'm struggling to understand. Additionally, when on the spin and drain setting, it's making a very load noise that sounds like a motor not working properly. To be very clear, it's not the bumping,etc.... type noises. The fact that it is draining is what's confusing me. I'm also trying to verif what OHM readings should be.

SOURCE: Hello Everyone, I have a Roper
that sounds like you have done all you can and i appriciate a well written question stating exactly what you have already done(some times questions here is "it dont work") so then back to your washer. There are 2 more possiblities
1) the motor capiciator is bad and not giving the motor a bump in power to start it. To check that,its black and round and going to be on inside right side of back panel.To check it use a meter set to HIGH ohms rating.place one meter lead on each of the 2 terminals (each terminal may have 2 wires but only 2 two terminals) and the needle should swing up and drop back if cap. is good and the needle will stay at or near zero if cap. bad. If using digital meter the numbers will constiantly be in motion jumping from 10 thousand to 200 back to 5 thou. and so forth if cap is good and again the display will stay the same and never change if capiciator is bad
If capiciator checks good the motor is going to be the problem
Good luck,i have i have been able to help you fix your washer,
