Question about Roper RTW4300SQ Top Load Washer

Does the roper washing machine top loader model# RTW4340SQ0 have a place to put in the liquid softener?

I see that the top of the agitator comes off and there seems to be a compartment. Is this where the softener goes in?

I have the same question but have not find a manual or any other reference that tells me whether this model has a softener dispenser or not. However, I just found this info: http://www.repairclinic.com/PartDetail/Fabric-Softener-Dispenser/8575076A/1195942 which is linked to roper washing machine RTW4340SQ0 parts list. It looks as if the washer doesn't come with the softener dispenser as original equipment but that you can buy this dispenser at repair clinic and just assemble it to the agitator as shown in the video that you will find in the link

SOURCE: washing machine filter for roper top loader

it has a self cleaning filter mounted under the tub. if you want to clean out the tub and filter thoroughly then:

  • run a cycle with no clothes using hot water and a gallon or two of bleach. 
  • after the tub has filled up add a teaspoon or less of dish liquid like palmolive. this acts like a surfactant for the bleach. 
  • make sure you also run an extra rinse cycle to make sure you have all the bleach out of the machine before putting clothes in.

It appears your timer/main controller/CCU has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

Roper Top Loader it will Fill with water, Agitate & 1/2 way through the wash cycle it just stops. Any suggestions I am not home so I don't have the model # but it is fairly old


Possibly could be a bad lid switch. Older models will allow it to do the agitate part of the cycle, but when it gets to the spin part of the cycle, it thinks the lid is still up and will not go any further. You might be able to repair it, if all it is doing is splitting in half at the seam by putting a zip tie around it and then put it back in place. Otherwise, you will need to replace it.

The top part (not the fabric softener cup) of my Roper top loading washing machine came out when I took a blanket out of the machine. I tried reassembling the agitator, but, it doesn't fit correctly. ...


If this is the split agitator (two piece), the top part should not come off without tools. The part of the agitator that receives the fabric softener dispenser has a clear plastic cap that comes off to reveal a bolt. If this is the piece that you have described, something broke.

The bolt in the picture must be removed to release the upper agitator from the machine.

Is this the part that came off? If so, the bolt came off or the upper agitator is broken.

Where do I add softener?


If your model doesn't have an automatic softener dispenser on top of the agitator, then you just add it directly to the rinse water
i.e. if the top cap on your agitator is flat, there's no optional automatic softener dispenser, if it looks like a cup, you have the dispenser, and that's where you would add your softener.

Hope this answers your question
