Re: ROPER RAX4232KQ1 Does not spin

You most likely have a broken coupler between the motor and transmission. A new coupler cost around $10 and is fairly simple to replace.
Remove the two screws that hold the console to the cabinet and flip the console back.
Remove the two clips that hold the cabinet to the rear panel of the washer and unplug the lid switch harness. The cabinet will tilt forward and slide off.
Remove the clips holding the water pump and move it to the side.
Unplug the wires from the motor and remove the clips holding it.
You will see the motor coupler.
Make sure you can turn the gearcase shaft with a pair of pliers so it is not locked up.
Post back and let me know what you find out.

Not spinning and makes loud noise

Motor coupling failure is the most likely suspect. Easy and cheap to fix. It is a simple rubber "shock absorber" that links the motor to the transmission. Search for washer online and most likely you'll find the part and the easy repair instructions.

Whirlpool wtw5100sq0 clunks when put on spin cycle

Does the washer currently work fine aside from the loud clunking noise? Does the clunking noise continue or is it just one loud clunk when it starts to spin? If its just one loud clunk then that is not a problem just ignore it as that is the clutch spring releasing, it probably starting making noise from the grease getting washed off when the washer over filled.
However how did the washer overfill? That issue should be addressed too. Sometimes though, if the tub is not centered from a heavy load the water will spill over the back but its not really an overfill.

My Roper washer will only work on the spin cycle. It will not fill or work on any other setting. The fill hoses are clear of debris and there is no kink in the drain hose. What do I check next?

The indication you state is consistant with the washer sensing water in the tub. If there is no water in the tub, then it would be the tub sensor. If there is water in the tub, and the spin cycle doesn't get it out, then I would look at the pump or the control board.

Now it has dried out and have been working beautifully. Then Three days ago it stopped agitating,will not spin only making a loud humming noise. I guess its time to get another one.
