If it is direct drive (no belt) it may be the motor coupling,

    it really is not hard. Just get to the Cabinet off, on the ones I worked on you just pull the pump then the motor. the coupling is right there. put the new one on and you should be good.

Have a whirlpool roper washing machine, runs thru cycle perfect but will not spin...lid sesor or switch was no good so took out and direct wired does that switch have to be there to operate to spin


I have a Roper washing machine model # RA S7133KQ1. On all cyle it does not spin or drain but it does agitate. I checked the capacitor, timer and water pump. All is good there. What could be the problem? There is no agitate or spin solenoids in this unit. Could it be the motor coupling for the direct drive washer? Am I missing something else that could be wrong with it? Waiting to hear from the expert.

Everything works-no spin-motor sounds like it won't engage


Sounds like the clutch is malfunctioning. Not an easy DIY job -- probably need a service call.

Washer wont spin


if the coupler and clutch are ok and you can hear the motor functioning, then it appears that your transmission is bad.most of the time you will see that in the days/weeks leading up to this that your cloths were more wet than usual when you took them out of the machine. Check your owners manual for warranty information. Some machines had a 5 year warranty on the transmission or gear case as whirlpool likes to call it.

My Roper washing machine is not spinning the water out. It is washing normal but when it comes time to spin it just stops. Please any info would be great. Thanks


Hello
Welcome to Fixya
My name is Huum,



Three possible reasons are:


Defective Lid Switch
Check lid switch for proper operation. Check the switch for continuity. If it is found to be open, replace the switch assembly.
Defective Motor
If the motor is not running, the pump will not work. Most washing machine use a reversible motor and it is possible for the machine to agitate and not spin or drain.
Defective Water Pump
If the motor is running and water is not pumping it could be a defective water pump. Ensure the tub to pump water hose is clear. If so, replace the pump.
