Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

Won't spin but everything else works fine.

Have a Roper top loader bought in 1994 - model number RAL5144BWO. Its been fine all these years. Starting yesterday it will not spin. All other aspects work fine. It agitates, it rinses, it drains. The only thing it won't do is spin. It does not make any unusual noises. It actually sounds normal and like it is spinning but when you oepn it up on the spin cycle you can tell it is not spinning. Any idea as to what the issue is?

I have a roper washer 5 years old and it won't drain or turn on now it was working fine yesterday ive unplugged replugged pulled out all the clothes checked power supply and hoses what now?


I looked up your model number. You particular machine allows for wash with the lid open. You nothing happens. On that case I would check the motor capacitor.

My machine is not spinning what may be the problem


depends on what brand and type of unit... is this a front loader a top loader and what brand.. is it direct drive or belt driven.... if it is belt driven could be a bad belt or pulley...if it is direct drive such as a top load whirlpool ,kenmore,roper, you could have a bad drive coupling which is located between the motor and transmission under unit.... if this is a front loader there are numerous items it could be example a motor controller board, main pcb board.
if everything is working but the spin mode and this is a top loader unit may want to check the lid swich that will cause the unit to not spin.... hope this helps kinda a vague description of your probelm....good luck and give me a vote i need them....

Everything works-no spin-motor sounds like it won't engage


Sounds like the clutch is malfunctioning. Not an easy DIY job -- probably need a service call.

Everything works-no spin-motor sounds like it won't engage


this is a whirpool style direct drive. most likely coupler is broken. it's a small part, between motor and gearcase about as big around as a silver dollar but thicker. lean the washer back so you can look under it and look right behind the motor. not a major repair. worth fixing. You will want to remove the cabinet so if you decide to do it mssg back for more info.

Have a roper ras7133kq1 top loader. It will fill with water and will do nothing else. when i manually set it to spin it makes a squealing nose and the water just drains out.


go to www.repairclinic.com and enter your model number. the first part you see is what is wrong with your washer's spin. replace that and you'll be good. this is found underneath between the motor and the transmission.

Mo del RAB 1121EW1 serial number CG 402 1770


This is a direct drive washer so there is no belt. The drive coupler that connects the motor to the tub may need to be replaced.
