SOURCE: Grinding Sound

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)

SOURCE: my roper washer won't spin

You should probably remove the water by hand if it will not pump and then pull the unit out far enough to get behind it. Have a bucket handy to drop your water supply hoses into since they will drain.
Back panels are mostly held on by a handful of screws (no more than a dozen) and once removed, you can peer inside with a flashlight.
If you see leftovers from a shredded belt, cheer!  The transmission would be far more costly to replace.
The belt can be had many places but I suggest you go to Sears website, then the parts department with your machine model number handy. They have a huge collection of parts illustrations for thousands of machines and Roper (now a Whirlpool company) is a common name. You should be able to get the mfrs. part number there and then search further or buy it from Sears.

SOURCE: Roper washer RAX4232PQO doesn't agitate or spin

It sounds like you may have a broken motor coupling. This is a common problem that usually occurs through normal wear and tear. Replacement couplers are more resilient and resist breaking much better. If the washer will fill, will not agitate or spin, but will still drain, these are the symptoms of a broken motor coupling. The accompanying noise of the motor engaging and a rattling/grinding sound is also a common symptom. This is a very simple and inexpensive repair. The following link explains step-by-step how to replace one:

The part number is included in the link I provided. You can purchase a replacement on line at appliancepartspros.com for about $11.

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

NOTE: Roper is manufactured by Whirlpool and uses Whirlpool parts, so these instructions will apply.

Roper top load RTW4640YQ1 will not drain. It makes a grinding noise but no drain. Lowered drain hose and water runs out draining tub. So, no pumping water out, but no blockage.?


could very possibly be a pin , coin , bra wire etc caught in the impeller blades preventing the pump from working
remove the pump and undo the housing of the impeller and check for obstruction

My washer fills and agitates, but when it gets to the rinse/spin cycle it stops and makes a loud grinding noise. Thanks for your time


If it doesn't drain the water after the wash cycle and the sound is more like a buzz then the first thing that I suggest you check is the lid switch. If the lid switch is damaged then the machine will not pump the wash cycle water out and it will not go into the subsequent cycles. The "grinding" or buzzing sound can be caused by an intermittent signal reaching relay switches or solenoids.

My topload Roper washer cycles fine but stucks in rinse stage. It makes a noise on that stage. I manualy put it in spin mode (skipped the rinse) and it works from there. Please help.


Your timer is bad. There must be a pause in the timer for the neutral drain transmission to lock in.
No Pause.
No Spin.
To double check this,when the timer gets to the Spin cycle, open then close the lid.
If it starts to spin at that point the timer is bad.
