If the model number you posted this question under is correct, this model Roper does not have a drive belt. The washer uses a motor coupling in place of a drive belt and is known as a direct-drive system. The following link shows the drive system of your washer:

http://pcappliancerepair.com/model-display.php

The motor coupling is listed as item 13.

Symptoms of a broken motor coupling include failure to agitate or spin accompanied by the sound of the motor running with no tub action. Just to be sure...the following link explains the symptoms of a failed motor coupling and how to diagnose the problem:

If you determine the coupler to be defective, the next link explains how to access the coupler and replace it:

The part number is included with the instructions I provided. Replacement parts (if required) can be purchased at any of the following websites:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

All these sites are reputable and offer great service with competitive pricing, so shop and compare. The first three sites I listed also include helpful exploded view parts diagrams to assist you in locating and properly identifying the parts you need. If you do not wish to order parts on line, use the part numbers I provided and go to your nearest appliance parts retailer. The coupler is usually sold as part of their in-store inventory. The average cost of a motor coupling is about $15.

If you have any questions, or if the symptoms I describe do not match the problem you are having, please post back with your complete MODEL NUMBER (if different from the one listed) and let me know. I hope this helps you.

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.

How to take back off of a roper washing machine


Your washer does not have a belt! It operates on a "direct drive" concept. You could have an issue with one of the following:

* spin/lid switch

* drive coupling assembly

* timer

* motor

Contact an appliance service company.

Roper RAX 5133AWP WASHER WONT DRAIN


HI, check the following to address this issue.

1. Clogged drain line or water pump
Check to see if there's something stuck inside the pump or the drain hose connected to the pump (pump is usually located at the bottom and towards the back of the washing machine).

2. Water Pump
If the drain line isn't clogged, you may have a problem with the water pump such as a frozen pulley or a broken impeller. If that's the case replace the water pump. Note: if you have a belt driven washer, check the belt(s) for cracks, as this would be a perfect time to replace the belt(s) if needed.

**The most common issue will be an obstructed hose or, line

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.)
