SOURCE: Roper Washer spinning cycle problem

This happened on mine as well. I determined that the clutch was bad. These are not belt driven but rather direct drive with a clutch/brake that controls the spins and agitate functions. Try washing an empty or very small load (like tshirts and underclothes) and see if that helps. ALso look underneath to see if there is any oil on the ground if so you most likley will need to replacet he cltuch mechanism... not an easy task for do it yourselfer!

sounds like the inlet valve is bad. if you have a volt meter it is simple to check. first thing to do is remove the screw in each endcap on the conrtol panel. then pull to you and lift up and let it hang to the back of the washer. you will see a connector for the lid switch on top of the washer. disconect it. on each side on the top there is a clip that holds the cabinet to the back of the washer. use a flat blade screw driver and remove the clips. now grab the cabinet and tilt up and move it to you. now on the right you will see the water valve. it will have 2 connectors on it. one clear one red. clear is the cold water valve.use the ohm meter to check the valve.make sure you have 120v to it and if you do disconect the wirs and ohm the solinoid out. should be between 450 -650 if you get no reading replace the valve.

SOURCE: Roper washer: Slow fill on hot setting

You can really thank the government for this- your washer has a 75/25 split valve (75 cold 25 hot--- so warm is mostly cold) which they mandated for all standard top load machines. In 2010 they are banning manufacting of all standard top loaders. The thermistor is because your machine has a ATC (automatic temperature control) system. It has a computer which monitors water temp for better laundry care. You could possibly have a repairman (this wouldnt be covered under warrany) try to retrofit a older service valve in your machine.

My new Roper washer ... when on the Hot wash setting ... only allows a little hot water in and a bunch of cold water in ... so you endup with a warm water wash ... is that normal ??? Why can't I get a...

Hi, when you use the hot water selector switch, it should only supply hot water. The hot water will fill more slower then cold, but you should not be getting any cold water what so ever. You say it is a new washer. You can try this. Try and slide the machine out enough to get to the supply hoses to where they connect to the washer inlet fittings. Unplug the washer. The hot water at the faucet should always be the left one. On the washer, they will be marked with a C and a H, cold, hot. Use a flash light to make sure they are in the right place. If they are, turn off both faucets. Now, remove the hot water hose where it is connected to washer. Hold it in the tub, and turn the water to this hose only on. See if the water gets really hot like it should. If not, shut off water, and do the same using the other hose. The reason is, sometimes the hoses may be switched, or the plumbing may be backward. See if the right faucet is putting out cold. If all seems to be correct, you have a problem with the water fill solenoid. If the machine is still under warranty, call your repair man. This is something you cannot take on your self. Checking the hoses like I asked may be your problem, but if not you will need to have it looked at or live with the way it is to save you $$$$. I wish you the best on this. You may need to use a pair of pliers to loosen the hoses also.

Hot water fills very slow(30 MIN OR MORE TO FILL) good water flow from spicket to washer, screens are clear. sewems to be something with the washer its self

Might be a bad inlet valve. To confirm, swap the hot and cold hoses to your washer so that the cold water feeds the hot water connection and the hot water feeds the cold water connection. Turn off both hot and cold water faucets. Set the washer for a warm water wash. Turn on the cold water faucet, and check the flow. Then turn off the cold water faucet, and turn on the hot water faucet and check the flow. If the cold water flow fill slowly, then the problem is with the inlet valve.

It an easy part to obtain from an appliance supply house. To install disconnect the hoses to the back of the machine, and remove the back panel to get access to the valve. Should only take a couple of minutes to remove and install. Hope this helps you.

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.

Rinse cycle, water won't work

It sounds like you either use warm or hot water for the wash cycle. If this is the case, you probably have a cold water solenoid problem on your water inlet valve (also known as a mixing valve on some washers). Most people use warm or hot water on the wash cycle. The water inlet valve has two solenoids. One for hot and one for cold. It uses a combination of the hot and cold solenoids to make warm water. The rinse cycle on most washers is a cold water rinse only, however. This would explain why the water appears to flow normally when it fills during the wash, and only trickles when it rinses. If you live in an area that has hard water, or if you use well water, these valves commonly clog with sediment. You can shut off the water, remove the hoses, and attempt to clean the sediment screens to see if the water flow improves. If it doesn't, you will need to replace the valve. The following link epxlains how:

I know the link says this is for a Kenmore or Whirlpool, but also applies to a Roper. A replacement valve can be ordered on line at Just type in the model number and the part you need is located under the "Controls and Rear Panel" heading as item number 18 (part #285805). This is a very simple and inexpensive fix if you wish to perform the repairs youself. Not to mention, you can potentially will save hundreds by avoiding the labor charges of a service call. I hope this helps you. If you require additional assistance, please let me know. Hopefully, a good cleaning will do and you won't require parts.
