    Washer won't spin after the rinse cycle. I placed a screwdriver into the lid switch slot and it began to work. I suspect the lid switch is going bad. How do I replace it and where can I get the correct part? Model # RAS7233KQO

Not spin water

do you mean the lid switch is loose? 02 Control and Rear Panel Parts for Roper RAX4232PQ0

if it is broken -- you could bypass it 01 Top and Cabinet Parts for Roper RAX4232PQ0

take out the two screws on the top control panel edged and remove the panel - just tip it back-- see that squiggly metal piece in the edge -- use a flat screw driver and stick the end in the slot of the tip of the brass looking squiggly piece and relieve the tension. The top will now be loose and there is the lid switch

My roper washing machine will not empy out or spin. It agitates alright but stops when it comes to emptying the water and going into the spin cycle.

If the motor isn't running, the lid switch may be defective. If so, the washing machine can't spin and may not function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.
Replace the lid switch with this part.

The machine won't drain and stops after wash cycle.

Sounds like a broken lid switch. You can locate this by looking around the lid and the lip, if I knew which machine it was I could instruct you to by pass it. If it is a whirlpool or roper it can be jumped under the control panel at the plug on the lid switch side by splicing the gray wires together, ignore the green.

Roper RAX4232RQ4 wont spin or drain

Hello, Your problem is going to be with your lid switch, this is located normally either in the control panel or about half way down on the right side under the lid. This is a safety feature to stop you opening the lid while the machine is in a high spin. Once you have located the switch trace the wires back to the wire harness in the control panel. Disconnect the lid switch from the wire harness and with an ohms meter check for condinuity on pin 1 & 3 (the 2 outside pins not the middle this is a ground) You should find you have no condinuity and should replace this switch. If you have any other questions or concerns please feel free to comment again. Good Luck!! Mike

Roper Washer Wont Spin Out

Probably a bad lid switch. Open the control panel. Disconnect the lid switch wire connector on top of the cabinet under the control panel. Make a small insulated jumper wire and insert it into the wire that is still connected to the control panel. Set the timer to spin. If it spins replace the lid switch in the cabinet. If not, replace the timer.

Unplug. Remove 2 screws on both back corners of top acess panel. Slide panel foreward and lift up. It will flip back out of the way. Unplug door switch harness. Pull up on and remove 2 retainer clips that attach backing plate to body. Pull up from back and remove housing.

Roper washing machine

it depends on your model but either way there are two screws in the front or back of your control panel back them out far as you can pull the control panel slightly forward and tilt it back then you will see two gold clips on the washer body pay attention how they go in there pop them out with a screw driver tilt the washer forward have someone hold it should be able to look underneath and get to the switch
