Their is no belt. This washer uses a reversing motor. The motor has a double shaft. One side holds the pump. The other side connects to a drive couping to work the tranny.ROPER RAS7133KQO My washing machine will not - 117be3b.jpg
The coupling will break because of normal wear,quilts or rugs,low water heavy loads etc. The pump and motor are held by convenient spring clips. The motor has a quick connect so no issue with wiring.To access the innards you have to remove the skin on this beast. Depending on the model you basically swing up the controls. Pop the clips holding the skin on and tip the cabinet forward to remove it. Then you can easily access all the vital parts of the washer. You can even jump out the lid switch and run the washer with the case off(when looking for various leaks). They say a picture tells a thousand words so I have a compilation.

Roper washing machine is not agitating. Makes a horrendous noise when supposed to be aggitating. No noise when filling with water.


Hello,

In addation to the agitation does it make the same noise in spin??
If yes it makes that same noise in spin the problem is going to be a broken motor coupler. I have written this tip about a broken motor coupler it will show ya how to take apart the washer and replace the coupler. http://www1.fixya.com/support/r10293994-whirlpool_made_washer_not_agatating

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.
