Question about Roper RAS8445KQ Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Hot water barely dribbles into the tub. I checked the line and it was full of hard water deposits. I cleaned the filter on the hose, but I guess some of the deposits got through. I can't figure out what needs to be removed and cleaned out in the machine.

Hello,
Your Water inlet Valve is going to need replaced. To get into your machine you have to remove the two phillips head screws on both sides of the top control area, they are either going to be on the front side of the control panel area or on the back side. If they are on the back they sit into a little grove, they will not come all the way out, just ensure that you unscrewed them enough to be loose from the lid panel.

Once those screws have been removed that whole control top piece will literally flip over backwards,(not by itself LOL) That will expose the two brass clips that hold the whole cabinet to the back panel. Use a flat head screw driver and insert it into the front side opening of the clip and push the top of the driver back, to "pop" the clip out of the cabinet, do that to both clips on the top there. The last thing you are going to do in unplug the lid switch plug. It is right in the middle, the only thing there you can unplug from the cabinet. Now just pull the cabinet forward and few inches and look for the water inlet valve, the piece your hoses connect too.


We hope this helps you out with your repair. If you have anymore questions or run into any issues feel free to post back. Thank you

Simpson washing machine will not fill with water. Epsrite 750. Hoses are fine, water pressure is fine. Just a dribble goes into the tub


Most hoses have a filter/strainer at the faucet end. This can get clogged. Remove from water source, check and clean.

Hot Water Pressure from taps


Hard water deposits from the water heater in the supply lines to the faucets. Sounds like your water heater needs to be cleaned out -- not just drained of water. You need to get inside and clear out the deposits in the bottom of the tank. You also need to remove the hot water supply lines to your faucets and see of you can get the lines to run free from the deposits -AFTER you clean out the water heater. Remove the drain -put on a 3/4 in. ball valve for the drain and a hose bibb on that - you can hook up a 5/8 - or 3/4 inch hose to get the particles out of the drain of the water tank. You may have to blow back the water line, from the faucets, the hot water lines- to get the deposits out of the water lines. You also may have to blow out the faucets with the water line disconnected to clear the calcium out of the hot side of the faucet.

Hi the cold water just dribbles into the tub. if I


is the cold water all the way on?

if so, the first thing to do would be to check the screens in the cold water fill hose and the screen in the cold side of the water valve on the back of the machine. if that is not the problem then replace the water valve.

(turn the water off before taking the hose loose)

Hot water barely trickling out to fill tub. hard water deposits? or what?


Have you checked the inlet filters on the water hoses ?

If you unscrew the water hoses from the machine, and look inside the connections on the machine, you should see the filters - they are usually a plastic "cage" supporting a gauze or fine mesh. These can be pulled out (you may need tweezers or fine nosed pliers) and washed under a running tap.

If this doesnt cure it, check that the hot water supply where the hoses connect to your house plumbing are actually fully on and flowing properly.

Otherwise, there is probably a fault with the solenoid valve on the machine that controls the flow of hot water in to your machine.

Kenmore washer. At rinse cycle only, water fills very slowly.


For low water volume - or "Trickling" effect...

1. Turn off the water supply to both hoses.
2. Remove hoses (one at a time so you don't get them confused)
3. On the washer side - look for a removeable screen inside wher you just removed the hose.
4. Using a small screwdriver - pop out the screen and reverse-flush it/clean it. It will likely be full of sediment and calcium deposits from your pipes.
5. Replace the inlet screens.
6. Re-fit the hose to the machine.
7. Turn on water supply valves.
8. re-try.

Water fill proplem to a washing machinre


Sounds like you have a Water Inlet Valve (also known as a fill valve) going bad. This is where the fill hoses connect. If you've already verified the hoses to be good and not kinked or clogged, more than likely, the water inlet valve needs replaced. If you live in an area that has hard water, or if you use well water, the fill valve can become clogged with sediment over time. You can attempt to clean it by shutting off the water supply and removing the hoses. Look at the sediment screens and use some distilled white vinegar with some cotton swabs to dissolve and break up and deposits in the screens. If you require a replacement valve, please post back with a complete make and model number so I can assist you with locating parts. I hope this helps you. This is a simple repair.

Dribbling water when trying to fill up


Turn off faucets for hoses to washer. disconnect hoses at washer, noting which one went where first.. Hold end of hose in washer tub and turn on faucet. If it comes out strong, check the filter screens in washer inlet valve where hoses connected. DO-NOT remove these screens. If you do it can cause flooding by allowing grit to hold open valve. Clean screens without removing them by scraping with small screwdriver and flushing with water.
