Question about Roper Washing Machines
The cold waster inlet valve is most likely not working. Set the water temperature to warm; if it turns out to be hot instead of warm then the cold water inlet valve is indeed not working.
Swap out the wiring connections of the two valves to further check cold inlet water valve. Access to the water inlet valve assembly (part number 3360392) requires the removal of the console and the cabinet. Disconnect power to the washer prior to servicing to avoid the risk of electric shock.
Remove the screws attaching the front bottom corner of the console to the top of the washer then slightly pull the console forward to clear the console tabs from the slots on the top of the washer. Once cleared, flip the console to the rear of the washer and disconnect the lid switch wiring harness from the cabinet.
the cabinet is attached to the rear of the washer by two brass-colored retaining clips. Insert the blade of a flat-bladed screwdriver into the lip of the clip on the cabinet side then push the handle rearward to release the clips.
Once the clips are released, open the lid and grab the front rim of cabinet then rock the cabinet forward and move it away from the machine.
The water inlet valve assembly can now be accessed. Swap the wires of the two valves then set the water temperature to warm; if it turns out to be cold instead of warm then the cold water inlet valve is indeed not working.
Make sure the wiring connections are clean a snug fit before replacing the water inlet valve assembly. If you have an volt-ohmmeter, set it to the R X 1 scale and check the continuity of the cold water inlet valve. Replace the water inlet valve assembly if it reads open.
Remove the inlet and outlet hoses from the valve assembly then unscrew it from the rear of the washer. Connect the outlet hose to the new valve assembly then screw it into position in the rear of the washer.
Connect the inlet hoses and reinstall the cabinet.
Bring the cabinet to the front of the washer then slide the front bottom rail of the cabinet under the rail at the base of the machine then lay down the cabinet into position. Make sure the slots in the cabinet sit into the tabs at the base of machine.
Secure the cabinet to the back of the machine with the two retaining clips. Insert the clips into the slots on the back of the machine then push it down into position to the slots on the cabinet.
Reconnect the lid switch wiring harness to the cabinet then align the console tabs with the slots on the cabinet and insert the tabs into the slots and secure the console to the top of the washer.
Connect the water fill hoses properly to the water inlet valve assembly and you should now be able to fill the washer with cold water.
