I had the same problem with mine. It turns out that the lid switch was loose. I was able to check it by using a screwdriver (you could use a pen or pencil) to depress the lever located on the right side of where the lid rests while the spin cycle was turned on.

My 5 year old Roper washing machine fills up, washes/agitates the cloths, drains them when the washer get to the rinse line to start the rinse cycle it stops, and all I hear is a humming. The machine will...


I'm not familiar with roper washing machines so I'll ask the question does it have two fill hoses. Most European machines now only have one fill. If it has two then it sound like the machine takes the initial water from the one fill and the rinse cycle water from another. The humming sounds like the valve for the other fill needs replacing. These are quite inexpensive and easy to fit. Power off.. remove lid ....switch of water...take out valve when you establish which one is affected and replace

Washing machine does not spin in any cycle


Hello, It can be one of two things, the contacts in the dial can have worn or broke causing the relay not to open or close to activate spin cycle.

Most likely it is your transmission or main gear for your spin cycle.

I hope its the dial which is an easy fix, but the trans is a big project IF the washer is worth it. You may consider looking for new/used washer if trans is bad. Good Luck.

Roper washing machine makes grinding noise on spin cycle but the tub doesn't turn


It sounds like you have a motor coupling that is broken. There are videos on YouTube to show you how to repair this. Search for "motor coupling repair on direct drive".

Roper rab4132hq0 washer does not spin consistently. Most of the time, the spin will not engage, this isn't just for the spin cycle, but for the spinning during the wash and rinse cycles as well....


Sounds like a bad gearcase.You have a machine that is direct drive. The motor is hooked directly to the gearcase by a little coupler. Look under and make sure the coupler is in place if it is then you need gearcase.Again the coupler is located between the motor and gearcase. Hope this helped.

Roper RAX4232KQ0 washer grinds


Yes they are only about 40 dollars but if your washer doesn't agitate then the problem would be the "drive motor to transmission coupling"
