Washing Machine Problem

I have an older Roper washing machine. It's probably 12 years old. It has just developed a problem where it will stop in the middle of the wash cycle and just sit there. If I open and close the lid, it starts back. Is this a problem with the lid switch (for lack of a better term), or is it time to retire it altogether?

I was washing a brand new comforter and in the middle of the wash it just stopped working


Verify that both hot and cold water is hooked up correctly, and turned on. Machines will wait forever for an inlet valve with no water....

Our washer is leaving a greasy residue around and on the top of the drum.


If the age of your machine is over 10-12 years old, you could have a model that uses a transmission and the trans is leaking. If it is the transmission, it could be about a $150+ part.

Older washer designs used a motor to drive a transmission to agitate and spin the wash tub. As these get older, some develop small holes in the drive shaft (up under the agitator) which lets the trans grease get into the wash water. Our old washer lasted 23 years before the tub started to rust, so we decided it was time to get a new one, rather than put money into such an old machine.

IF your washer is older than 15 years, it might be starting to develop some other issues, such as rusting tub, etc., that could be costly to replace those parts, like the transmission, so you need to determine if
you want to repair or replace the machine.

If you can provide a model number, with all the alphas and digits, including the pre-printed ones on the label or tag, it could be confirmed that your washer uses a transmission and that is the likely source of the grease you're seeing.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!
