Re: roper repair

The back doesn't come off for servicing, the entire cabinet does. Remove the two screws on either end of the control panel, either in back or front depending on the model. Pull the entire control panel towards you & up, then flip it back. The entire cabinet is removed by releasing the metal clips that secure it to the back panel. Use a heavy screwdriver to snap the clips out. Unhook the wires that plug into the top and tilt the cabinet towards you and pull off.image.tiff An exellent help site is:  Hope that helps.

The Roper will not allow hot water in although the supply is hot

This sounds like your water valve may have failed. They are fairly easy to change, and are not very expensive. Where the water lines come in to the washer, is where it's located and you can remove it from the back with just a couple of screws. Please make sure you unplug the washer and shut off the water supply to it before you attempt to repair it. :) You can find a new water valve at your local appliance parts store. They'll want to know the model and serial numbers, which you can usually find on the back, but that all depends on the washer itself.

I hope this helps! :)

15 yr old Roper dishwasher won't drain. I have to bail out water with small bucket. Plumber says pump must be out and better off to buy a new dishwasher. Should I get it fixed or buy a new one?

My advice is with the plumber, however the washer is doing it's job then buying a new pump is the way to go and now during these economic times if you can maintain a budget balance by repairing the device and it saving money then the repair wins every time. the washer will pay for the purchase of a new pump ( if you can find one for that model) over an over again. Then save for the new washer when this washer has seen it's usefull days.
Hope this helps. Have a great day!

How does one go about leveling a Roper Top Load Washer?

I am not a repair professional. I am just a 78 year old
man who has been making his own repairs for about
50 years. Therefore the washer or dryer ID doesn't
mean much to me. I came to fixya looking for a
schematic for an really old AM/FM radio and
discovered that more than 4,700 people were asking
for help with a washer repair. I recently had a washer
repair of my own and found an excellent video which
showed me how to take my machine apart. This
video made it possible for me to do my own repair. I
was so impressed with the video that when I saw all
these people needing help, I wanted to tell them
about it. If you have a top loader (washer) of the
direct drive type, this video might be a Godsend for
you. If you look at the back of your washer and the
panel is solid (no small inspection plate to remove)
chances are you have a direct drive and this video
is just what you need. You can see this video at You will probably need
more help in determining what the problem is and
how to fix it. If your repair problem is a washer or
dryer I suggest you go to
where they have very good trouble shooting and
repair information on most washers and dryers.
I think you'll find what you need there. Don't worry
about the timer, they hardly ever go bad. Good
luck with it. If I have helped you, please rate my
advice on fixya.

I have a whirlpool washing machine, it will not spin out. Anytime I try to set it to spin cycle when I push the knob in it makes a humming sound but does not spin.....HELP!!!!!!!

This isnt a fix-all solution, but i have the roper top load washer and it has done the same thing i am trying to find the problem, but to get it to spin again we have to move the entire wash bin around and have to turn it (like your screwing it back on) this has happened to me and this is what i have done just to get it to work again, as i said, i am trying to find a repair manual to fix the problem so i can avoid the repair shop.

I believe Roper washers are manufactured by Whirlpool. The following link should provide you with the necessary steps in removing the washer casing, so you can access the pump:

If this information is not correct, or if you require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

There are only springs that balance the machine. An even amount of clothes inside the washer keeps it balanced. But on the ropers the tub is designed to be very loose like it is. Load the machine evenly and you should be fine.
