Question about Roper RAX4232KQ Top Load Washer
My wife washed 3 pairs of really muddy jeans and the next load we washed the washer starting making a very loud noise at spin cycle. After the loud noise starts it stops after a few seconds and doesn't try to spin at all
There are a few things that can go wrong, If the washer doesn't adgitate or spin then probably the coupler is broken, lean the washer back and look under the machine between the motor and transmission you will find the coupler. (very common)
Coupler Part# 285753A $22.95
If its agitating but not spinning, check the lid switch, (easy check just listen for the click when you shut the lid, Or you can bypass it with a jumper wire under the console there are only 2 screw that hold the console down they are philips and either located in the front lower corners or the back lower corners)
Lid switch Part# 3949247 $42.95
If lid switch is good and the motor still doesnt run you might have a bad timer (RARE)
Timer Part# 3954563 $95.95
If you can hear the motor running but its not spinning and you have rulled out the coupler then your probably looking at a clutch (common problem) either the clutch isnt grabbing or the brake isnt releasing both problems solved with the clutch kit
Clutch kit Part# 285785 $44.95
Worst case your looking at a transmission, (uncommon) to rule out, make sure its agitating, then put washer in spin cycle. look under the washer to see if the clutch bell is spinning. if its not then you will need a transmission.

if its making loud noises when it stops spinnig then the block is bad.
