Question about Roper Washing Machines
To access internal components, REMOVE POWER, lift the console by one of three ways. 1. Look in the back of the console, in each corner there will be a screw, unscrew until the console can be pushed forward. 2. The trim on either side can be pried off from the top, grasp and pull forward to expose to expose a screw. 3. insert a putty knife under each corner, push to release a latch. With console lifted:
1. You will find a lid switch connector (white in color). Unplug the switch from the connector.
2. There will be two brass colored clips. Place a flat blade screwdriver straight down into the opening on top of the washer and into the groove of the clip. Push the screwdriver down and away from you and the clip will release.
3. Open the lid of the washer and place your hand under the front rim of the opening (DO NOT grab the wash tub). Tilt and slide cabinet forward to remove.
There should be a counterbalance spring in the bottom rear of the machine. Sometimes the mounting hole in the frame will rust through..if so drill a hole next to old hole and reattach spring. Sometimes spring will rust and break..is so replace spring.
