Hello,

Most likely you are having a problem with your lid switch. If your machine has a hole on the right side, under the lid, you should be able to see a switch just below the surface. An arm on the lid pushes the switch to allow the machine to spin.

For starters I would unplug the machine and put my hand under the cabinet where the switch is. You may feel that it has separated (glue) and can push it back together. If so, there is a chance you can fix it quickly right now. Take out the two screws and pull the switch under the lid (above the tub) to inspect it. If it is separated at the glued joints just push it back together and put a zip tie around it. Put it back in place, add screws, plug the machine in and test.

If parts have fallen out you may need to replace it. I would suggest http://www.partsblowout.com as they are cheaper than anyone else for appliance parts.

If the switch is not separated or you don't have this type of switch let me know and I'll tell you how to troubleshoot other problems.

Good luck.

That could be your lid switch. You should hear an audible click when you shut the lid. If the washer act like it is trying but won't spin that could be the drive coupler. I have a page which includes a service manual HERE

My washer won't spin


Usually when this happens its the clutch. especially if you see it trying to spin. If it agitates and doesnt even try yo spin it could be the transmission.

Roper washing machine fills and washes, but when it gets to the spin cycle there is no sound and it won,t spin.


Hi m3gamma1,

Before the Spin Cycle should start, all water must be drained out of the machine. If it does not start, it could likely mean the Drain pump may be clogged. Please follow my below tip on the fix:

ACCESS, DRAIN & CLEAN THE DRAIN PUMP FILTER...

If this does not help, the drain pump may be faulty.

Kind Regards

Good evening, My Roper washer RAX4232PQ0 will not spin...it seems to drain OK but won't spin...can you offer any help? Thanks!


I am thinking if all works good except won't spin, it is your lid switch. Under your washer lid you will notice a peg of some sort that when lidnis closed goes into a slot/hole and that triggers the spin cycle. That is in lamens terms know as a safety idiot switch. It is designed so when the washer is spinning at those high speeds,na child or not to smart adult does not open lid and put hand in while spinning. SO, if switch goes out, of course it won't spin. Switch is cheap , under 20 bucks at any appliance parts store, and they even can tell you at store how to putnin yourself by showing on one of there washers on display. Let me know if I nailed it!! Thanks Mike
