My Roper washing machine model RAL 5144 AW makes noise when it agitates - like something is loose.


Sounds like your agitator needs to have the agitator dogs replaced.If you take off the top of your agitator you can look down inside and see what's happening. Hope you find this helpful.

Ultimate Care won't agitate


Hello Friend, Your problem is a simple quick fix. Sounds to me like you just need to replace the agitator dogs, Under $5, they are fairly easy to replace: Pack of 4 pcs. Just remove the agitator bolt and remove, then remove upper piece and pull out assymbly (easy) just drop in the new agitator dogs and re-install assymbly. Then re-install agitator and your done.

Making an awful ratcheting noise during aggitation and spin cycles


Under the agitator there is a rachet mechanism that works the agitator. If it is stripped, it will skip until the next good tooth.. when it fails entirely the agitater will stop going back and forth. Its nylon and age along with overloading hastens its dearg.. If you can get the parts you can replace it yourself without difficulty. There is a single bolt in the center of the agitator top . Remove and loft agiyator straight up.

Agitator ''dogs'' not gripping, agitator spins freely; tub rocks


Likely a broken dog itself was making the noise. They should all be replaced.

Loud grinding noise from agitator. How hard is this to fix.


Removing the agitator will not stop the grinding noise. Usually a bearing/gearbox problem going bad will create a howling grinding noise. You'll definitely hear it in the spin cycle. These are an expensive fix and require special technician tools to disassemble the unit. The gearbox is a sealed unit. Most manufacturers warranty their unit's gearbox for 5 years regardless the warranty you got when you purchased the unit, so check into this before you void your warranty. (The manufacturer requires their factory authorized service technicians to do the replacement) All in all if you do the work yourself it'll be approx $250 for the parts and gearbox transmission. To have the work done is usually much more.

Agitator very noisy while washing


There is a small roller that tightens the drive belt for the drum inside this unit. If it is loose it makes a squeaking noise. Tightening this may solve your problem. You will have to take off the back panel to do this repair
