Question about Washing Machines

2 Answers

Pulling my hair out with confusion!

Hello - I am sure hoping that you can point me in the right direction as I deal with the frustration of my washing machine. I'm having trouble with my Roper Top Loading Washer - RAS7233KQO Lately, I've been noticing that the clothes are left very wet after the washer is done. I began investigating the possiblities. The easiest was the timer and the lid switch - all is well with these two things. I then decided to begin watching different wash sessions to see what was going on. Everything progresses as it should until it reaches the spin cycle - kind of. When the washer has an average load in it, it either spins very slow or you can see it trying to spin or sometimes it won't spin at all. I then decided to test the washer by putting just a couple small items it it. I ran the washer. It reached the spin cycle and spun like crazy BUT - the couple of clothes that I put in were still very wet. Help! Is this a spin problem or a pump problem? What would you suggest we look into to diagnose the problem? Please point me in the right direction. Any help you could offer would be such a blessing to our family. Thanks and God Bless!

    Thanks for your helpful solution.  I will be willing to try anything you send.  I did want to make it clear that there is never much to very little standing water in the tub when the cycle is done.  I do hear sloshing water inside the "outer tub" like you stated.


    Thanks again.

    As far as the standing water, I can hear it slosh sometimes, but there is not very much or very little visable inside the tube.

Child lock does not come off


Some control panels are finicky--you have to press on the buttons just right to choose a selection. If your model is a touch-panel or soft-touch design, they can be frustrating sometimes to get the pair of buttons pushed just right--I'm an appliance tech and sometimes want to pull my hair out(I don't have much left, lol!) However, the problem could also be a defective user interface board(fancy name for control panel) or even a defective main board with corrupted programming. Make sure you press and hold the buttons long enough to remove the lock--usually 3-4 seconds but I've found that sometimes you have to hold the buttons significantly longer until the lock is disabled. Hope I helped you!

You probably need to clean the filter (bottom right hand side of the washing machine) and clear it out.
Also, when you pull out the filter, be sure to check inside the housing for any detritus that might be stuck in there.
You'll probably find a hair clip or something similar is what it causing the noise - it seems incredible that something as small as a hair clip can cause so much noise but try it and believe.

Hello there and welcome to fixya
I am very sorry that you are having a troubles with your machine
I know that it can be very frustrating when dealing with error codes so i will do my best to try to help you thru this ok?
ok well first the f20 error code is a no water code meaning that the machine may not be getting any water into the machine or very little and after 6 minutes the error code will be shown on the display .
So what do u need to do is this
f you have NO water in the wash tub, check the following:

- Inlet water valve may be clogged. Clean inlet screens if necessary.
- Make sure water taps are on.
- Check inlet hoses for kinks or clogs.

If you HAVE water filling the wash tub, check the following:

- Make sure you don't have a siphoning problem. Click the following link for instructions:

My washing/dryer isn,t spinning what could the problem be


Hello, There are several factor's to consider with a Bendix combo unit not spinning. First and most common is an obstruction in the pump or a faulty pump entirely. In the front of the washer at the lower right hand side below the tub door you'll notive a smaller door/access panel. If you open it there lyes the pump with a removable filter insert, unscrew it and check for foreign object's such as coins, button's, hair pin's etc. Other possible factor's are overloading,(adjust load size) Improper detergent or too much of the right detergent (HE only and 1/2 the recommended amount is typically enough) and ultimately worn brushes in the motor, this can usually be identified by observing the "wash" portion of the cycle. Does it rotate both way's when washing, changes direction approx. every 6 second's ? If yes then the brushes are ok, if no...call in a pro appliance tech. I also suggest you inquire to their experience with Bendix...it could save you a lot of time, money and grief. Those are the most common issues, it could also be related to the timer or door lock but less likely. Hope that help's. Thank you for visting fixya, please take a moment to rate the answer provided to you today. Feel free to ask for any further assistance to move you forward. Good luck. Macmarkus :)
