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.

SOURCE: Roper washer, agitater stripped?

It sounds like you need to replace your agitator dogs (yes, there is such a thing). They are small plastic pieces that are used by the upper portion of the agitator to grip as it turns. This is a common problem when they wear out. If you go to searspartsdirect.com, there's an illustration of what I'm talking about under the "Agitator, Basket and Tub Parts" heading. Item number 10 (part number 80040) is what you need to replace. Just type in your complete model number in the "Search by Model Number" block. The following link provides you with step-by-step instructions on how to do this:

You can find these same parts at repairclinic.com and a cheaper price. Use the part number provided. I hope this helps you.

PS The item is priced for a package of 4.

SOURCE: my roper top load washer model rtw4440vq fills with water but wont wash, spin or drain

see this causes and fix it. God bless you
Motor Coupling If the washer won't spin or agitate the motor coupling might have failed. The motor coupling connects the motor to the washer transmission. It is designed to fail if the washer is overloaded in order to protect both the motor and
Drive Belt If the washer won't spin or agitate, check the drive belt. If the belt is broken or if it isn't tight on the pulleys the washer won't spin or agitate properly.

Drive Motor If the washer won't spin or agitate the drive motor might be defective. This is not common. Check all of the other related parts to this symptom before replacing the motor. If the motor is visibly burned out or physically damaged, replace it.

Stator Assembly If the washer won't spin or agitate the stator assembly might be burned out. The stator is essentially one half of a motor, it interacts with the tub by creating a strong electro-magnet. If the stator burns out the washer won't spin or agitate. Check the stator for continuity. This part is often misdiagnosed.

Door or Lid Latch Assembly If the washer won't spin or agitate the lid switch assembly might be defective. This is a very common problem. The lid switch assembly can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any electrical switches with an Ohm meter for continuity. The switches should have continuity according to their design.

Door Lock Motor and Switch Assembly If the washer won't spin or agitate the door lock assembly should be checked. The door lock can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any switches on the door lock with an Ohm meter. The switches should have continuity according to their design.

Motor Control Board If the washer won't spin or agitate the motor control board might be defective. The motor control board provides power to the motor as well as direction and force. If the motor control board is defective the washer may not work at all or function properly.

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

Roper washer leaks when filling


It's in the drain hose somewhere,during the fill the water gets as deep in the drain hose as it does in the washer,during the wash the pump runs in reverse keeping the water level in the hose low,during the drain the hose is filled again.
Prop the washer up in front on a couple bricks or boards,start putting in water until it starts to leak and take a peak under the machine.

Wont fill up with water it drains out before its full


If you hear the motor running when it is draining then you have a bad timer. If it just drains out and the motor is not running then you have a siphon problem which is caused if the drain hose is too low. Let me know what you find.

Mo del RAB 1121EW1 serial number CG 402 1770


This is a direct drive washer so there is no belt. The drive coupler that connects the motor to the tub may need to be replaced.
