Question about Roper RAS8445KQ Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Only spin cycle

Thanks
The problem I’m having is every thing works but the spin cycle!
Motor, coupling, agitator, pump, turns runs during wash and rinse cycles.
The spin cycle makes noise during turning of motor.

Could it be clutch? trans?

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

Frigidaire washing machine (FTW3011KW0) runs through all cycles, agitates, pumps out water, but doesn't spin, nor does the motor attempt to spin during the spin cycle


Your main switch needs replaced. The motor that drives the switch operates because it goes through the other cycles, so the switch must be bad.

Washing machine operates sporadially


What made you replace the motor? Sounds also like a transmission problem. You motor reversing in spin but gears for agitate stripped in gearbox. Double check motor/coupling alignment. Pull the motor back off and turn the gearbox drive shaft both directions. One direction makes the basket turn, the other direction makes the agitator turn. If the agitator does not move, the gear case is bad.

My kenmore won't pump out the water. what could


couple of possible reasons and this will vary by brand of machine...lid switch could be bad...some machines will wash or agitate with lid up but will not spin unless lid is closed..others will not do nothing with lid up....some brands will not spin if the water level switch can detect water in the tub...this means your machine didnt pump the water out of the machine so it could spin couple of reasons for this 1 bad pump or bad pump motor(some machines have a pump that is driven by a drifferent motor than the one that drives the transmission)usually these machines use the water level switch to activate(turn on/off) the pump when the machine goes into spin cycle... some machines the pump wil come on and stay on for the entire spin cycle...some machines the belt will be bad and you just need a new belt....first thing to do is see if raising the lid will turn the machine off when it is in wash cycle if it does not..then it will in spin cycle..if the machine will not work in spin cycle the lid switch will be the reason why..

WASHER FILLS WITH WATER,MOTOR ENGAGES AND RUNS SMOOTHLY,BUT NO AGITATOR ACTION. WILL GO THRU TIME CYCLES AND FILL WITH AND DRAIN OUT WATER BETWEEN CYCLES. JUST NO AGITATOR. iT WILL SPIN DURING THE SPIN...


Sounds like you motor coupling has broken. The water pumps out so that tells me the lid switch is fime and motor is fine. The drive coupling mounted between the tranny and motor is probably broken

Make noise during wash cycle, has no agitator action and no spin during spin cycle/drain cycle


Looks like the bearings may have failed. TURN OFF the POWER and try and rotate the agitator/tub by hand. If it is jammed you should investigate why. Possibly caused by bearing failure or something wound around spindle.

Take care and do not attempt to investigate the problem without first disconnecting from the mains!

Kenmore Washer No Spin >> Motor problem


It's probably the motor coupling. Same thing is happening to me, but I can not gain access to the motor
