You will need to replace the clutch assembly. Here is the kit to order.
There is also a video on that parts page to show you how to make the repair.

SOURCE: I have a Bosch maxx

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

I suspect that there is water still left inside as the drain pump has been unable to complete its task so they are being spun in water!
I would gently suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor/pump lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters and many machines will not even go to rinse or spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside.
Following are my complete and hopefully 'coverall' pre-typed guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)
REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT (alternatively use a wet vac as sensibly suggested by VinnyB1234!)
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!). These panels are either held on by (plasic) screws or will just pull off. Most filters are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play.
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. Using something suitable like a glove see if it is easy to briefly slow the motor down. If it is easy then the motor is malfunctioning.

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

SOURCE: Spin cycle not working properly, clothes still wet!!!!

When the clothes are wet at the end of a cycle, check these:
Motor coupler Totest the motor coupler, re-start the washer in its spin cycle. Let themachine run for a minute, and then open the lid and notice whether thetub is spinning:

  • If it's spinning when you lift the lid, the coupler is fine.


  • Ifit isn't spinning--and your machine was produced by Whirlpool®--you mayhave a broken coupler. Many Whirlpool-made washers use a small,relatively inexpensive device called a motor coupling. Thisplastic-and-rubber component is mounted to the shaft of the motor onone side, and to the transmission on the other. Over time, the couplerwears out and fails. When that happens, you need to replace itcompletely.


Spin cycle Ifthe washer doesn't reach its proper spin speed, the clothes may be toowet at the end of a cycle. Check to be sure the load is properlybalanced and run a spin cycle again. If the clothes are still wet, youmay have a worn or loose belt (Maytag®), a worn clutch (GE®/Hotpoint®),or a worn motor pulley or tub bearing. Replace the applicablecomponent.

Alternatively, there could be clothes caughtbetween the inner and outer tubs. Read the "It spins but won't pump"section of the "It won't drain" section. Also, there could be otherthings that cause friction on the drive train. Seek the assistance of aqualified appliance repair technician.

Siphoning Ifthe water that pumps from the machine goes right back into the machineafter the spin cycle, it may be because your washer is siphoning thewater from a laundry tub with a slow drain, back into the washer. Tryto improve the draining of the laundry tub. (Is there something stuckin the drain?) Also, be sure the drain hose doesn't reach more thanabout 4 inches into the laundry tub. If it does, cut off the excess.

Water-inlet valve Water-inletvalves eventually fail. One problem that may develop with a water-inletvalve is that it can no longer completely shut off when the electricityis turned off to it. Then, the valve may leak and drip water into theclothes tub--you may notice that your washer has water in it when youhaven't used it for a few days. To fix this, replace the valve.

SOURCE: on one wash clothes came out sopping the next there was no water

Check the drain hose for kinks or blockage. The drain hose should be free in the drain pipe so air can get around it. The drain should be good enough to accept a lot of water all of a sudden without overflowing.

Roper rab4132hq0 washer does not spin consistently. Most of the time, the spin will not engage, this isn't just for the spin cycle, but for the spinning during the wash and rinse cycles as well....


Sounds like a bad gearcase.You have a machine that is direct drive. The motor is hooked directly to the gearcase by a little coupler. Look under and make sure the coupler is in place if it is then you need gearcase.Again the coupler is located between the motor and gearcase. Hope this helped.
