Question about Roper RAS8445KQ Top Load Washer
I also had roper washer model RAX 4232KQO for about three or four years. It washed great but would walk around on spin. It was in a house I rented out to someone else. Three years later I moved back. The roper still walked around on spin. I went to APD, a parts store and purchased a repair book. I took the washers case off. All the (3)suspension springs were intact as were the counter weight spring. When reassembling the washer a saw a yellow plastic band that had embossed on it pull out. I had pulled out the band attached by a yellow plug when I first purchased and set up the machine. What I did'nt do was completely remove the band which had two cotter pins attached four years earlier. I pulled out the band with the two cotter pins. I put the case back on, plugged the machine back in and put the machine on spin. The Roper Model RAX 4232KQO never worked so good! I guess I should have read the setting up instructions!

One thing to understand is that this is a difficult problem to pin down and may end up requiring the control board to be replaced.
The UL or unbalanced load error is displayed when the control board senses an out of balanced load.
You don't indicate if the washer is actually out of balanced or not when the code appears but the description of banging and shaking would indicate it is out of balanced.
If the washer consistently bangs and shakes in spin then I's suggest you remove the spin basket and check under it for obstructions that might prevent the washer from spinning smoothly.
