Pop the top cap of the agitator off. Reach inside with a pair of pliers to pull out the plastic cover. Take a 7/16 socket wrench with extension and remove the bolt. Pull up on the agitator to separate it from the bottom portion.

I have a NEW Roper Washer. It agitates somewhat slowly. My old washer agitated FAST. Is this normal for a Roper?


I would have a look at the cam dogs located in the agitator and the motor coupler or belt if not direct drive. check for loose clutch or slipping tranny. also check for worn agitator spline

How to remove the top part of the agitator of a roper model ras8445kq0


Often agitator tops do spin somewhat freely, for safety reasons. Most of the work gets done at the bottom, anyway. Unless your clothes are getting tied in knots, I wouldn't worry about it.

But if you want to look, they're usually not that hard to remove. I can't picture yours off the top of my head, but look for a cap/cover/cup on top that can be removed by hand, and there might be a bolt underneath that. There's usually a lot of friction in addition to the bolt holding it in place, so you might use an old towel slipped under the agitator and cinched to give you more leverage/grip.

Good luck.

The spinner is not rotating and is making weird noise.


If this is a TOP LOADING Roper washer, a no spin problem can have several causes. However, most commonly, this is caused by either a lid switch malfunction or a broken motor coupling. The following link explains how you can diagnose the problem and repair it yourself:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3965207-whirlpool_top_loader_no_spin_problem

If this just a simple matter of the agitator not working, but everything else does, you may just have a worn agitator cam assembly, worn agitator dogs, loose agitator bolt, or all of the above. The following link explains what agitator dogs are and how to access them:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3608577-replacing_agitator_dogs

Whirlpool manufactured washers (such as Roper) use a split agitator design. The top half is known as the "auger, while the lower half is the agitator. Between the two pieces is a cam assembly, with small teflon teeth known as "dogs". There's also an agitator bolt that holds the entire assembly to the center post.

If the auger (top half of the agitator) is slipping, I would suspect the dogs or cam assembly need to be replaced. The part number for the dogs is included in the link I provided. For a little more you can purchase the entire cam assembly which includes the dogs, the cam, the cam seal and thrust bearing.

If the entire agitator appears loose or slipping, check the agitator bolt to ensure it is tight. DO NOT overtighten as this can restrict movement of the agitator or damage it. Tighten until snug.

Replacement parts (if required) can be purchased at any of the following websites:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

All these sites are reputable and offer great service with competitive pricing, so shop and compare. The first three sites I listed also include helpful exploded view parts diagrams to assist you in locating and properly identifying the parts you need. If you do not wish to order parts on line, use the part numbers from the Sears website and go to your nearest appliance parts retailer. All these parts are commonly sold as part of their in-store inventory.

If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

NOTE: Roper is manufactured by Whirlpool, so these instructions do apply.

Agitator seems to be loose It does not seem to agitate like it is suppose to.


Your problem may just be attributed to just a loose agitator bolt, or the agitator dogs require replacement.

Roper (which is manufactured by Whirlpool) has a split agitator design. The upper portion is called the auger, while the bottom is called the agitator. Between these components is a agitator cam assembly. This problem is commonly caused by worn agitator dogs or the agitator cam assembly. The following link explains what the dogs are and how to replace them:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r823955-replacing_agitator_dogs

The part number is included in the link provided. You can purchase replacements at pcappliancerepair.com for about $5. For a little more you can purchase the entire cam replacement kit, which includes the cam, the thrust bearing, and the dogs. If the model number you listed this under is correct, the part number for the kit is 285811 and sells for about $11.

NOTE: You can refer to the excellent exploded view parts diagrams the web site has to offer for assistance. Whirlpool also recommends the application of a little grease on the thrust washer. The part number for their recommended grease is AP3098553.

If you have any questions about this repair, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

NOTE: DO NOT overtighten the agitator bolt. This can cause damage to the plastic, or restrict the agitator movement. Tighten until snug only.

Roper model ras8445kq0


If the agitator does not spin at all, then it is your motor coupling. If the agitator tries to spin but cannot, then it is your dog agitators.
