Hello,
This is usually caused by sediments in your water supply getting into the fill valve, and preventing proper valve closure. My guess is the cold water supply is the culprit, as the sediments on the HOT supply generally settle in your water heater. The best solution is to replace the fill valve, as attempts at repairing the valve are generally futile. Replacement on most top loaders is fairly easy, the most difficult step is usually opening the unit to access the valve! Some are accessible at the rear of the machine.
Be sure that the filter screens are properly installed to prevent premature failure of your new valve assembly!

I hope this will solve your problem.
Sincerely, Bondo

How much rust did you find on the Clutch Pulley and the Upper One-Way Roller clutches bearing ring if used? Any Pic’s of the old Clutch Pulley?


If you shut off the water source valves to the machine and release the top the washer so you can lift the washer top and observe the wash basket rotating CCW at 50 RPM during the water fill part of the wash cycle.


Start a quick wash cycle and lift the washer top to observe the wash basket rotation CCW. The wash Basket will rotate CCW at 50 RPM. You can go into Service Mode and observe on the LED console FAV6800A machine. Not sure about the FAV9800A LCD flavor of the machine.


Do the tumblers rotate slightly during the water fill part of the cycle?


The machine may error out with NF for No Fill don’t worry about that I just want to determine if the tumblers are rotating during the CCW/Spin direction of the wash basket. You may have to put some dry laundry in the wash basket to help with the observation.


Let me know what you see……..Rich

Water will not shut off when filling on wash cycle. Pressing OFF does not stop the filling. Only solution is shutting water OFF at wall source. Is this machine worth fixing? Are parts available?


The problem is the water inlet valve has failed. This is inexpensive and easy to replace. Here is your part # AP4026989 If you need help installing try this link http://appliancehelponline.com/topload.html

4. Take more water compare to toploading semi-automatic.
5. You can not open it once it started.

Top Loading Washing Machine: Semi
1. Save water and detergent.

Roper washing machine hot water won't shut off


An obstruction in the hot water-inlet valve may mean that it's no longer able to shut off and should be replaced. Good luck !
