Question about Roper RAS6233KQ Top Load Washer

Open Question

My washer's tub moves around a lot more than it used to. Is there a mount that may have broken loose? It used to spin rather quietly but now the tub hits the cabinet so hard when spinning the whole machine moves. Not to mention the tub no longer sits properly for it to fill. The water hits the top edge of the tub while filling and runs onto the floor. Thank you for your time and consideration, Ozzy

SOURCE: Washer won't agitate or spin

what you need is a motor coupling. it connects to the motor and the other end of connects to the transmission. the part about 10.00 but i recomend having a professional install it because it can be tricky. i suggest you buy the part at a parts store or even online to get it even cheaper and then have someone install.

SOURCE: Roper washer does not drain

Alicia7q : Faulty water pump or restriction in drain line between tub and outlet hose.

arlenekc,: That metal thing is part of the motor. What you have is a leaking water pump.

badwasher,: Check the lid switch. This machine will not spin or drain if the switch is faulty.

SOURCE: Roper washer leaves clothes wet after spin cycle.

Thanks, Master Tech; I was having the same problem as Jason. When I put the pen in place, I realized that the motor was running, but the tub wasn't spinning (which I thought it was because of the sound of the motor). So, I put my hand in and gave it a push/spin and it started turning on its own after I did that.. So, I'm going to let it run and see what happens when the cycle is done. At least its a start in the right direction!

SOURCE: Roper washing machine- unbalanced spin - rocking agitator

I usually stand in front of the washer and take the plams of my hands and forcefully provide a force with the heel of my hands on the side front corners and the lip comes up

Another option is to pull the washer out and remove 2 clips (usually requires quarter inch nut driver to allow the top to come up

This should allow you to get the top off to see if a spring has broken or slipped off


GOOD LUCK!

During spin cycle the washer makes a loud thumping noise. Not a clanging/sharp noise. When I manually turn drum it sounds like something is loose inside. Like a ball may sound inside drum as it turns.


Is it a front loader? You may have something stuck between the tubs or it may be a broken "paddle" One of the plastic baffles that move the clothes around in the tub. they should all be tightly against the tub.

Shakes like crazy spin


Your maytag washer tub and basket assembly sits on a base counter balanced by 6 springs. Is is possible to move the tub around by hand. The best test is to start a spin with the unit empty of cloths, allow the tub to reach speed for a few seconds, lift the lid and check the tub position after it stops, if the tub is off center with the lid opening, re center the tub and run spin again. If your tub returns to an off center stopped position you most likely will need the base kit replaced. The base kit replaces the entire bottom of the unit along with new springs, and snubber, if so packaged per your application. Maytag experienced a defective stamping dye when these bases were stamped, thus they were stamped crooked. This test is performed with the machine it's self relatively level on the floor. If the tub assy leans and favors any one direction while you are trying to center it with the lid open, you may have a rusted or broken counter spring in side the unit. Pleazer Appliance...

What would the cost be to tighten drum in washer


Sounds like the concrete weight is broken. It stabilises the unit while spinning.If the drum moves inside the tub, the bearing has collapsed

We have a Kenmore 70 series washer. Lots of vibration when spinning yet the tub really doesn't appear to be out of balance. (i held the switch closed with the lid open). Also we are getting some leakage...


Check the Vibration damper rods to be sure that...
1. They are there and mount is solid.
2. If they are broken in 1/2.
3. The plastic knuckle mounts are not missing/broken.
4. There is oil in the shock absorber/spring section of the rods.

Also - there are suspension springs on the bottom of the tub that could be broken and/or missing.

Replace/repair as necessary.

My maytag washer is very loud during the spin cycle it sounds like an airport. ALso it is now giving and E3 code when in spin cycle.


My washer did that, a very similar front loader also. Investigation turn up broken shock absorbers that stabilize the tub, Remove the front panel under the front door and look in there. On each side there is a little shock that holds the tub stable. They looked good at first, but when I moved the tub around I could see that the loop on the end was broken off where the pin fastened the shock to the base. Replacement was not that hard but aggrivating to get to and get leverage to install the pins.
Do a search for "appliance parts" and you can order right on line. Checkout a number of sites as the prices vary a lot...
The replacements were heavier than the originals, so you will be better off after replacement.

My 20-year old maytag washer has begun to vibrate and jump around as it spins. I shift the load and it does no good.


Sounds like you have a loose/broken tub mount. Pull out the washing machine and see if you can see the mount. You may be able to repair it, Best of luck
