  Sounds like something in pump.  This is causing motor to hum and not turn.  Motor is going off on thermal overload.  This is why the humming stops.  It may be possible for you to tilt washer back and access pump.  Remove clip on bottom and top and pull pump off motor.  Try and turn pump.  Remove hoses and see if you can see obstruction.

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.

Washer doesn't fill with water and begin wash cycle. I can hear it instantly draining out rather than fill, and has ran my well dry. We replaced the water pump a month ago, and it washed a few loads of...

Sounds like siphoning. This can happen if your drain pipe is too low and you run the drain hose right into it, or if there isn't any kind of air gap between the drain hose and pipe. Usually it shows up when trying to fill for the rinse cycle - it drains as fast as it fills. Or it might not fill at all. Order a "siphon break kit". They're cheap and easy to install

Sometimes washer keeps running water & doesnt fill up. i have to unplug it for a few hours so it can work again...has happened on all cycles...what causes tub not to fill with water

water is siphoning out the drain hose ,drain pipe not high enough "must be 36 inchs"from floor or hose is inserted in pipe to far creating a suction situation ~once over the edge it cant stop...., may need a anti siphon kit on drain hose .

I have a Roper washer. It filled with water to wash, but when it came to draining the water to rinse, it just stops. It will add water on rinse cycle, but it will not drain or spin.

Sounds like the lidswitch. As a safety, the tub will not spin if the door is up (open). In turn, it will not drain if it wont spin. This is a common problem with whirlpool washers. You can go to to get the breakdown and order the part.

Whirlpool Roper Gets to Rinse then water runs but will not fill

The contacts for the outlet pump have fused together in the programmer so that as soon as you apply power the pump motor starts running.

Remove the power first

Quick check is to take off the back panel locate the pump and remove one of the supply leads
put some insulating tape around the end of the lead you have taken off in case it shorts out then put the power back on and try the machine, it should then fill and start to agitate .

If that works then you need a new programmer .

Turn off the power , replace the lead and then put the machine back on to drain out the water

Hello, So unit should fill with water though right? Just no spin and drain. more than likly you have a bad lid switch. look and see if there is a hole somewhere on the frame. usually on the lid you will see a actuator that plunges into the lid switch. When you close the lid you should hear a click if there is no click you a bad lid switch.

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.
