My Roper top load washer is making a squealing sound.. Is it a belt?

Most are belt drive on front loaders and on some top loaders but not all. Other culprit can be a dry bearing. Get into it a take a look. A length of plastic hose makes a good stethoscope to pinpoint the noise.

Changing a belt on a washing machine

There is no belt on this machine.
It uses a direct drive coupling between the motor and transmission.
Ope the control console,then remove the cabinet clips to remove the cabinet for access to the motor.
Remove the motor then remove the broken drive coupling(3 parts).
Replace the part and re-assemble the washer.

You need to check the store for the belt or ask a technician to have it checked and replaced.

Changing a belt on roper top load washer

There is no belt on a roper. It called a drive coupler. its direct drive. Go to sears online and go to the parts section and put in your model number. Look at the diagrams and it will show you where it is located (easier to show you than to tell you.)
