Question about Roper RAS8445KQ Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Grinding Sound I own a Roper RAS8445KQ. It's approx. 4 years old. I've never had any trouble until yesterday. At the end of any spin cycle, just as it's stopping itself, it make a brief but loud grinding sound. Just a few seconds long, but every time it finishes a spin cycle. It's working perfectly, other than this. Help!

Sounds like the brakes have become noisy, just like in an automobile if they glaze over they start to squeak. This really wont hurt the machine but if you dissasemble the machine (or pay a professional at the most 1.5 hr labor since your washer is the best design and fairly simple to repair) and clean the brakes (basket drive assy) and the drum (part of the tub support)

It sounds like you have a motor coupling that is broken. There are videos on YouTube to show you how to repair this. Search for "motor coupling repair on direct drive".

If it agitates, you probably need a new gearcase. If not, check the coupling between the gearcase and motor. Hope this helps!

Yes they are only about 40 dollars but if your washer doesn't agitate then the problem would be the "drive motor to transmission coupling"
