check the lid switch on the washer loosen the two screws on the control panel end caps pull the control panel slightly forward and tilt on its hinges then you will see a connector under the panel it has three wires one is gray one is green i think the other is tan unplug the connector and put a jumper wire from gray to tan to by pass the switch lower the control pane and start the washer to see if it continues if it does replace the lid switch

Roper washing machine makes grinding noise on spin cycle but the tub doesn't turn

It sounds like you have a motor coupling that is broken. There are videos on YouTube to show you how to repair this. Search for "motor coupling repair on direct drive".

I want to keep the water in my Roper top load washer overnight so it will soak the load of whites I have started but the machine drains.

You should be able to select a soak cycle without having to turn off the water supply, but it may time out eventually and drain the tub. This p[events oversoaking the clothes

My washing machine makes a grinding noise when it is spinning. It drains alright and seems to work ok, but I`m afraid the grinding noise could lead to bigger problems.


All owners are heading toward this issue. I feel your FAV6800A or FAV9800A is at the end of service lifew for the Tub Seal

If you open the washer lid and spin the Washer CCW and hear the noise (Outer Tub Bearing noise) then it's time to role up your sleeves.

Do you have basic DIY mech. skills and do you want to save your $1K machine?

If so Google Neptune TL Washer FAV6800AWW

In the Sticky: Neptune TL Washer FAV6800AWW 5 post down you will find a link to the Service Manual. You absolutely need the Service Manual to DIY issues with the machine. It's not the best SM but will get you started. I also have repair post in that sticky to help with the most common issues that I have helped owners with. I'm an owner of a FAV6800A top load machine.

Google this FAV6800A/FAV9800A Outer Tub bearing replacement to see what is involved in doing an Outer Tub Rebuild.

Good Luck

Everything works-no spin-motor sounds like it won't engage

Sounds like the clutch is malfunctioning. Not an easy DIY job -- probably need a service call.

Grinding sound from washer

the pully is the drain pump they can go bad or may have somthing in it, pump is not bad to replace part us usually 40 -60$ , you could burn belt up and be forced to replace it also, but if you replace pump would not be a bad idea anyway belts are 20-30 $

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)
