Empty tub of water unplug unit and pull it away from wall about three feet, tip unit back and on right side of drum you will find a hose connected to it remove this hose and inspect it for clog,if no clog is found nipple end on drum is probably clogged"can be cleared with small wire".If this is not cause then presure switch in upper control panel is bad,"note if hose is not connected to drum that is cause".The pressure switch is connected to the hose and the hose can even be damaged with hole in it if this happens hose needs replaced the length of the hose is important to operate properly and should not be altered in any way.

After my toilet fill valve shuts off, water continues sipping into tank slowly. This causes water continuously overflow through overflow tube.

check that the fill valve was installed correctly
adjust the float level so that when full the cistern water level is around 1/2" below the over flow pipe end
what you have now is that the inlet water is not being shut off correctly and the water is still coming in and flowing out of the overflow

My roper washing machine modelRA845KJQ have a fuse in it? I just stopped wrking mid wash..its full of water and will not work andwe repaced the motorand he coupling in it ndstill nohin and was wondering...

If its sitting dead... and you have no wash/fill/or spin.. I would tend to think timer. If the tub I full of water, reset the timer to wash... if it washes and then die's at the rinse... look at the lid switch.

Roper top loading washer RTW440VQ1 will not stop filling up

The pressure switch, also called the water level switch, is what control the amount of water goes in the machine, If your machine is constantly filling to the overflow point, then that is your problem. Now, if water is going in and the level is staying the same then your machine drain line is lower than the pump and your siphoning out the water as it goes in. Pull the drain up a little a that should fix the problem.

My washer water never shuts off water runs all the time had to turn off the valve to get washer from filling up

Their are 2 possibilites causing it to overflow

1) the water inlet valve that the hoses from the house plumbing attach to is sticking open,when it sticks it will stick open regardless if thier is power to the machine or not,so to determine if that is the problem,start the washer and quickly unplug it,if the water continues to fill, that valve is sticking

2) the water level switch is defective,do the same as far as starting it,if the fill stops when power disconected it's the water level switch that is in need of replacement

I hope this has helped you,

Roper washing machine will only run one load every 12 hours!!

It's overfilling If your washer is overfilling, check these: Water-inlet valve Water-level switch Water-inlet valve A defect in the water-inlet valve may mean that it's no longer able to shut off completely when the electricity has been turned off to it. If this occurs, the valve may leak and drip water into the clothes tub. In time, the water may accumulate substantially. If this happens, you need to replace the valve. Water-level switch A defect--or an obstruction--in the water-level switch may mean that it can't tell the water to shut off. So the machine overflows. This switch senses the water level in the clothes tub. It's usually a diaphragm device with a small, clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level in the tub increases, the pressure on the air in the tube increases. When the pressure reaches a certain level, it activates the switch, shuts off the water, and signals the timer to begin the agitate cycle. You can either clear any obstruction in the tube or replace the water-level switch.

Washing machine overflowed

Try filling it again and stay with it, when it starts to get near the top, unplug it, if water continues coming out you need a new valve, if it stops, then the level switch inside the control panel is bad

It looks like that water level sensor needs to be replaced. Basked should never be filled with water. I suggest you to unplug the washer from the wall, turn off the water line to it. Don't try anything with it on your own. It can be very dangerous! Call the repair man.

My Roper top loading washing won't stop filling.

It's not necessarily the angle of your drain hose. When it drains as you fill it, it's called a siphon condition. Pull the excess hose out of the stand pipe (drain). Only about 6" should remain inside the pipe. Tie it down with a plastic tie to one of your fill hoses to prevent water pressure from pushing it back out. This should solve your problem.
