If you have to reset the dial, it would be a worn out contact in the time.
purchase a rebuilt timer and all should be ok
if there is an issue with the clutch you will smell a burning smell as your clutch heats up from slipping.
i dont think it is the clutch, but more likely the timer. and possibly the lid swith

    not sure where you are from..
    here in canada I would go adn see sears, or "reliable appliance parts"
    if you have a visa your best bet would be to call sears, give them your model nuber and ask to ship the part.
    hopefully they have your model number on record.
    but any appliance part store should be able to get you a timer.

Roper washing machine runs through all cycles but clothes are still dripping when spin cycle is finished. I manually start a second spin and that helps, but don't want to do this every time.


You have to be sure its agitating first. if its not agitating and just sounds like it is you need to replace the motor coupler, a very easy and cheap fix but if its agitating and just not spinning then it will most likely need a new transmission which is still not very expensive or hard to install for your model...if you need further help please don't hesitate to email me at etsi00257@hotmail.com

Only spin cycle


Check the lid switch, it only locks out the spin cycle.

Fisher & Paykel Pride 5.5 Smartdrive 8 not spining


There is a transmission clutch that engages for the spin cycle. A gear has worn or broken a tooth. Replacement of the transmission hispeed spin cycle assembly is required.

The other comments are of no use. You must get parts from an Authorized Fisher & Paykel dealer, or have an authorized repairman service the machine.
