Question about Roper RAS8244LQ Washer

1 Answer

After opening the waching machine to rebalance the load, the basket will not start spinning again after you close the lid. The machine simply makes a racheting sound when it tries to start spinning the basket. I then took all the clothes out of the machine and it still will not start and still makes the same racheting sound. Any ideas what is wrong and how to fix?

The problem is in the clutch assembly particularly the thrust washer. Check the condition of the clutch assembly to verify this condition. Disconnect power then remove the agitator. Once the agitator is removed, lay the machine on its back then unclip the pump from the drive motor. Disconnect the motor harness and remove the bolts attaching the gearcase to the base. Carefully pull the motor and gearcase assembly out. The gearcase assembly includes the clutch assembly.

Possibly motor coupler joining motor to transmission or maybe transmission part (clutch, basket drive, transmission itself, drive block, etc)

Sometime the wash cycle stops when the spin cycle should start.


From what you're describing it sounds like the lid switch is faulty. Open & close the lid slowly & listen carefully for the click of the lid switch. If you do not hear the lid switch, you will need to replace the lid switch. Other testing will require accessing the controls & using a meter to make some more checks with. If the motor is not running & the lid switch checks good I suspect the timer. If the motor is running in the spin cycle but the basket is not spinning I suspect the drive block, basket drive, transmission or clutch.

Machine makes loud banging noise during the spin cycle


The load is out of balance. Open the lid and redistribute the contents. When it's empty, grab the basket and give it a slight push sideways. It should move a little but, not free swing. If it doesn't have much resistance, the "snubber" has dried out and should be replaced. It is simply a piece of rubber in a metal bracket, that rests on the tub. When the basket spins,the snubber keeps it from jumping around.

My whirlpool does not work in the spin cycle


Check the spin cycle activation switch located on the lip of the machines casing where the lid comes down to close.

Often the switch that activates the cycle either goes out and simply needs replaced. Or has worked loose from it's bracing and when the lip comes down to make contact { push it in } the switch body shifts and doesn't receive enough pressure to activate the cycle.

Replacing the switch is both easy and inexpensive if you replace it yourself and avoid a tech service call that would generally cost more than the part itself.

Rinse and spin


there is a safety switch on the top...and when you close the lid it pushes down on that switch. investigate that switch and see if its just corroded or needs replacement...i have that same problem when i leave the lid open on my washer...then it works fine when i close it...so im figuring that your's thinks its still open. I hope this helps you out ! and give your wife a hug 8-)
