Question about Roper RAS8445KQ Top Load Washer
MY agitator is not spinning since a sheet wrapped around underneath it. I had pull a lot to get it untangled. Could the have come loose when I was pulling on it causing it not to turn? Could this be an easy fixing problem of having to re-tighten where it attaches?
Usually it is a gearbox drive coupling, designed to break on exceptional loads
whirlpoool 285753, parts common to whirlpool roper ge kenmore and about a dozen other brands.
dissassembly instructions vary slightly between models
(note: do not dislodge air tube from level selector)
(note: position for reinstall)
(note position for reinstall)
(Note the local parts guy will have the replacement, it is common to ge, whirlpool, roper, kenmore, new maytag, frigidaire and many others.)
(note dont hit the legs they break.)
(note: new spiders have metal center hubs, this is a common failure and the replacements have been strengthened)
in reverse order to above
gearbox coupling ~$17.00
time ~25 minutes, but I do 3-4/month
