Question about Roper Washing Machines

1 Answer

Model: Roper RAL4132VW I read this answer http://www.fixya.com/support/t5201733-wasaher_not_spin_or_drain and have the same issue. However it's inconsistent so I can't pin down if it's the lead switch or motor. Here's what I know: 1. Right now I can run a full wash cycle 1 of 5 attempts. The others stop and leave me with a full tub. Failed cycle can happen after initial water is run or prior to spin. 2. Lid Strike is secure 3. Lid switch - not sure. I removed it and cleaned the soap crud, checked connections, and screwed it in tight. The first run went 100% perfect. But none have worked since. 4. I hear it click each time Question -- Can it click, but not work? Where the switch has an internal problem that just causes it to fail. About the motor: 1. Hard to tell if it is the problem, or if it's just not being triggered to run. ALSO: There is an odd smell emitted around the attempts where the cycles fail to run. Kind of a slight burn smell.

Hi,

A couple of thinds...

The lids switch can go bad and still click... but I don't think that your problem is the switch...

I think that your problem is the motor... it can start to go bad...work sometimes and not other times...

The fact that you have a hot smell when it does not run leads me to the motor conclusion....

I would get an electric meter or have some one with an electric meter check to see if you are getting power to the motor when it should be running...this will confirm my theory...
