Question about Whirlpool Washing Machines

Open Question

We have a whirlpool Roper washer model #RAS8445KQ0. When the washer reaches "high spin" cycle, it stops running and will not drain. My husband checked the hose and it is not clogged or twisted. Could this be a mechanical problem?

If the agitator does not spin at all, then it is your motor coupling. If the agitator tries to spin but cannot, then it is your dog agitators.

SOURCE: how do i get to the dog agitators in the roper

Pop the top cap of the agitator off. Reach inside with a pair of pliers to pull out the plastic cover. Take a 7/16 socket wrench with extension and remove the bolt. Pull up on the agitator to separate it from the bottom portion.

WASHER WONT DRAIN


Does the washer spin on rinse and drain cycles ok? If it does spin but won't drain, the problem is the plasic impeller in your drain pump. This model is a direct drive unit with a reversing motor that runs one direction for agitate, but reverses to spin the tub and operate the drain pump. So if it spins but DOES NOT drain, it's the drain pump, but if it doesn't spin or drain, than it's probably a lid switch. Also the tub to pump hose or pump discharge hoses may be clogged with something. If your mechanically apt, you can do this repair yourself and save a service charge. The pump runs about 30 dollars or so and is really easy to change out. Check out Youtube videos on Whirlpool washer repairs, they will show you everything to do. Yes, I said Whirlpool, because Roper is built by Whirlpool.

Hope this helps

I have a Roper washer. It filled with water to wash, but when it came to draining the water to rinse, it just stops. It will add water on rinse cycle, but it will not drain or spin.


Sounds like the lidswitch. As a safety, the tub will not spin if the door is up (open). In turn, it will not drain if it wont spin. This is a common problem with whirlpool washers. You can go to searspartsdirect.com to get the breakdown and order the part.

Set the timer to spin manually and turn it on.
Does it spin?
If not,
Your lid switch is bad and must be replaced.

If yes it does spin.
The timer is bad.
