Question about Roper RAS8445KQ Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Washer is always "out of Balance" during the spin cycle

The washer spins during the spin cycle just fine, but bangs really bad - it doesn't matter if there is 1 items in the washer or a full load and moving the clothes around doesn't help. When it spins it is always out of balance. However, it doesn't do it as bad on Delicate Cycle. Is this a fixable problem or should I start looking to purchase a new washer?

    Found a post concerning the "Yellow Shipping Strap" marked "Pull to Remove"... Well, I took the back off my washer and one of the cotter keys was still in place, it had not come out with the strap. Removed that cotter key and the washer is spinning fine now. No more "walking" across the floor during the Spin Cycle. Anyone who is having this problem - I would strongly suggest seeing if any of the Cotter Keys remain in place even though you have removed the yellow shipping strap.

Loud banging noise during rinse


Most noises from a washing machine occur during the rinse or spin cycle. If you hear loud thumping during the spin, the load of clothes may have become unbalanced. Stop the washer and redistribute the clothes, then re-start it. Repeat these steps if necessary.This will solve your problem.

Front Loading Washer - Load Banging During Spin Cycle


hello, your problem is that your shocks are bad and need to be replaced. you can access them by removing the front lower panel. make sure you unplug the washer first. you will see 2 of them on either side of the tub. i belive you can twist the upper portion and then remove the bottom screew and remove the shock. of course before you start you should have the new shocks. and make sure their is no water in the tub.

Spin cycle noise problems


It is likely that you have an unbalanced load. Try spinning the machine with only water in it. If there are no noises now, you will need to re-distribute the load. We clothes are heavy!!
