If it is filling when the machine is not in use this would indicate the water inlet valve has failed and will need to be replaced. Here is a link for help with that water inlet valve replacement

If it is overfilling only when a cycle is selected then the problem is with the pressure switch.

The problem is the pressure switch has failed or the hose is plugged up, has a hole in it. These are usually inexpensive and are very easy to replace. Here is a video this will walk you thru testing and replacing a pressure switch. You can also enter your model # for diagrams and illustrations of your specific model. All parts come with installation instructions. Not all models are available.

Brand new roper washing machine model # RTW4440VQ2 the cold water is very slow filling hot is fine


This model of washer has something called an Automatic Temperature Control. This means the washer puts water into the tub at specific tempreatures instead of just 100% cold, or 100% hot. Be sure and check that the hot and cold fill hoses are connected to the proper places on the back of the washer. It's possible that the ATC (mentioned above) is causing the washer to fill slowly on the cold setting.

Roper washer leaks when filling


It's in the drain hose somewhere,during the fill the water gets as deep in the drain hose as it does in the washer,during the wash the pump runs in reverse keeping the water level in the hose low,during the drain the hose is filled again.
Prop the washer up in front on a couple bricks or boards,start putting in water until it starts to leak and take a peak under the machine.

Roper washer fills with water continuously


Your inlet valve is defective, can be easily changed. Approach your dealer with your model number he will direct you to the spares shop, or tell you where you can get it. Or google 'roper washing machine spares'
