Question about Roper RAX4233PQ Top Load Washer

Open Question

I have a Roper 3954258. It will not fill with water (NO water enters when the dial is pulled). I believe it may have gotten wet via rain when hail broke the roof. Maybe electrical? Any reset buttons or anything inside the back cover??

SOURCE: Roper top load washing machine. Fills with water and then stops

Check out the drain pump, it is not uncommon stuff gets stuck in the impeller preventing it to do its work.

Also check out the drain filter and that the drain tube is not clogged. Very common causes of trouble in my experience and would give symptoms like you describe..

A good method to check if the output side is clear may seem a little gross but... take a deep breath and blow through the drain tube from the other end (taking whatever precautions you feel like).... It should be possible and if you can't, you know where the problem is.

Good luck!

SOURCE: Washer fills with water then does nothing

A washer that fills and doesn't do anything, or stops right after the wash cycle and then does not advance to the rinse cycle and drain is commonly caused by a lid switch malfunction. The lid switch is usually mounted under the washer top casing, on the right hand side on most top load models. It is activated by a plastic piece on the lid (called a "Lid Strike") through a small hole on the rim of the wash tub opening. In many cases the lid strike breaks off the lid, or the lid switch becomes loose and no longer makes contact. Inspect the lid to make sure the lid strike is still intact, and then inspect the mounting screws (adjacent to the small opening on the wash tub rim) and make sure they are snug. If you determine the switch to be defective, the following link explains how to replace one:

If the switch requires replacement, a new one can be purchased on line at,,, Just use your model number as your search criteria. All these sites offer competitive pricing, so shop all them for the best price. If you still need assistance, please contact me and let me know. If my diagnosis is not correct, please post back and elaborate a bit more so I can assist you further. If your washer is not configured this way, or if you still have questions, please let me know.

SOURCE: Hello, my roper washer filled up with water but

Check/replace the lid switch - modern Roper machines are direct drive. You can bypass the switch (join the contacts with a conductor) but it is a safety feature for a reason.

Roper washer schematics

Are you referring to the inlet screen on the water fill valve? Screen should not be removed, just cleaned. Screen prevents objects from entering and damaging the valve. This damage may cause an over fill condition.

Water leak on the passanger side of a 1999 Jeep Cherokee Sport

The first place I would look is the floor board caps. Make sure one or more of them aren't pushed up, allowing water to enter the cabin. Also, because your defroster is probably on while it's raining, make sure the A/C drain plug isn't clogged. It's a small rubber fiting that sticks out from inside the firewall, behind the engine. Simply pull it out and clean it. When you pull it out, you might be surprised to see water coming out of the hole!

Just a couple things to check. I hope this helps! :)

Roper Gas Dryer

You may have gotten water in your igniter or pilot light. Put a hair dryer to the areas where the pilot and igniter and burner is so that it can be fried out.

Bike died in the rain

I would tend to believe it was more of a situation where water got into some of the electrical connections and caused a short , which caused an over current, thereby blowing the fuse. The thing to do is, try to figure out where the water is getting into the electrical system and then try to seal it. I've ridden in a lot of rain and never had this happen. Look for an electrical fitting that appears to have gotten wet inside or maybe a place where wire insulation is damaged. Maybe water got on a wire with damaged insulation and shorted it to metal. Or maybe water even go into the fuse box, or any other electrical housing (such as the head lamp assembly). But either way, the water definitely caused a short somewhere.
