I can't find the year made but I can tell you that it's made by Whirlpool and it's one of the most reliable units made. The only problems you might have is

  1. Coupler
  2. Water Pump
  3. Lid Switch

These are the most common parts for these machines. Each are less than $35.00. I'n my opinion the #1 washing machines made. As far as the year, you will most likely have to call Whirlpool.

I am thinking of buying a used Roper washer and dryer, model # RAX4232JQO and YREX4634JQO, respectively. Anybody know the year of the make? Are they good appliances? Thanks

Roper is manufactured by Whirlpool and uses Whirlpool parts. This is a fairly reliable washer and (from an appliance repairman's perspective) one of the easiest washers to troubleshoot and repair (if required). Nearly all the parts are inexpensive as well. The gearcase (transmission) is the most expensive part in the unit (about $150) and even it is simple to replace by the average do-it-yourselfer.

The dryer, if maintained properly, is also very reliable and an ease to work on. The heating circuits are the most common fail items and average about $100 to replace (all parts combined). This is also a simple appliance to work on from a repairman's point of view.

Make sure it is installed correctly, by using semi-rigid exhaust vent ducting. The following link can give you some helpful advice on how to maintain your dryer to prevent premature failure of components:

The number one cause of any dryer heat related problems is caused by poorly installed, excessively long, kinked, or clogged exhaust vent ducting. I can't express that enough. Failure to maintain a dryer by cleaning it periodically can also create a fire hazard.

The age of the appliance is determined by the SERIAL NUMBER. The following link explains how to determine the YEAR and WEEK of manufacture:

If the units are in fairly decent shape, I would seriously consider purchasing them. Even the older Whirlpool manufactured washer and dryers still use the the same parts as the newer models today. So, age isn't necessarily a factor.

If you have any questions, or need future advice (if you experience any problems), please let me know. I hope this helps you.

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.

Does it happen all the time, with no connection to laundry quantity? In case of a positive answer, it sound like a shock absorber issue. Could be that it's moved from its place or become malfunction and should be replaced. Good luck
