Question about Roper RAS6233KQ Top Load Washer

Roper won't spin

I have a Roper washer that is about 7 yrs old. It won't spin out . It will spin empty but you can reach in and stop it with your hand. Also if you have only a few pieces of laundry you can start the spin with your hand if you are lucky. I've looked at the clutch when its spinning and its spinning,even when you stop the drum. The shaft seemed to want to move during the spin but then stopped. So what do ya think? Thanks

That could be your lid switch. You should hear an audible click when you shut the lid. If the washer act like it is trying but won't spin that could be the drive coupler. I have a page which includes a service manual HERE

Washing machine works up to the spin cycle, it does not spin it does however empty the water. this is a roper brand top load machine about 5 yrs old.

Lid switch. A safety mechanism used to make sure lid is closed in spin cycle. You can bypass this switch by placing the wires that go to switch together. DO NOT do this if you have children or do not want to remove that safety feature some require because they dont know better than to open a washer in spin cycle. :)

Roper Washer Wont Spin Out

Probably a bad lid switch. Open the control panel. Disconnect the lid switch wire connector on top of the cabinet under the control panel. Make a small insulated jumper wire and insert it into the wire that is still connected to the control panel. Set the timer to spin. If it spins replace the lid switch in the cabinet. If not, replace the timer.

No spin on a roper

This machine does not use a belt. It has what is called a motor coupler between the motor and transmission. This is not the first place to check. I'd be looking at the lid switch first. This machine will not spin if the switch is faulty.
