The model number is usually under the lid on the machine towards the rear of the opening where you place your clothes. For a humming noise, I would first pull my washer forward and tilt it back about 45 degrees resting the top against the wall. I would look up at the front, center for the white peice of plastic. That's your pump.There is a clip on the top and on the bottom of it that will slide off (with a fair amount of pressure). After they are off slide the pump forward so it is not on the motor shaft any more. Now tilt the machine back down and try spinning it again. Does it still hum? Yes - probably bad contacts in yout timer and you need to repalce your timer. No - probably something stuck in your pump keeping it from turning. Disconnect the black hoses and drain the remaining water out. Look into the holes on the pump to see if you can remove the forign object.

The spin cycle is making a terrible noise - the drum seems very loose and even makes a starnge sound when moving it by hand. Can I repair this myself?


If this is a Whirlpool manufactured TOP LOADER (such as Roper, Estate, Kenmore, Amana, and Frigidaire), you may have a damaged or broken motor coupling. Whirlpool manufactured top loading washers use a motor coupling between the drive motor and gearcase (transmission) in place of a drive belt. This configuration is known as "direct-drive". The coupling can break through normal wear and tear. Washing frequent loads of heavy items and reduce the life span of the coupler. Common symptoms include the following:

1. No spin or agitation.
2. Washer will fill and empty.
3. Drive motor still runs.
4. Strange rattling, grinding or clicking noise during agitation or spin cycles as the drum sits still.

If your washer is exhibiting these symptoms, then its probably a safe bet that the motor coupling is bad.

The following link explains how to replace one:

The washing machine model # RTW4340SQ0 makes a humming noise


Roper is a division of Whirlpool and your machine is still under warranty if only a few months old. You should be able to find a factory authorized service company in your area.

My roper wont do anything


Is you washer sitting on a carpeted floor? If so ther is not enough air flow under it for the motor to not overheat. Maybe by now 4-3-09 it's functioning if not post me your model number. If it's on carpet raise it up with 3/4 inch boards under the feet.
