Top loader washers the main reason is either the motor coupling has failed. You will hear a grinding or growling or whirring noise or the lid switch has failed. The lid switchy will keep it from spinning but usually it will agitate. Check and make sure the drum is not froze and won't move, if it is free, check the coupling under the tub and make sure the motor and tranny are connected. If they are then the transmission may have failed. If this is a front loader the main reasons are a bad motor.

WASHER WONT DRAIN


Does the washer spin on rinse and drain cycles ok? If it does spin but won't drain, the problem is the plasic impeller in your drain pump. This model is a direct drive unit with a reversing motor that runs one direction for agitate, but reverses to spin the tub and operate the drain pump. So if it spins but DOES NOT drain, it's the drain pump, but if it doesn't spin or drain, than it's probably a lid switch. Also the tub to pump hose or pump discharge hoses may be clogged with something. If your mechanically apt, you can do this repair yourself and save a service charge. The pump runs about 30 dollars or so and is really easy to change out. Check out Youtube videos on Whirlpool washer repairs, they will show you everything to do. Yes, I said Whirlpool, because Roper is built by Whirlpool.

Hope this helps

BASKET WONT SPIN TO DRAIN


Check the lid switch could be bad or have a bad connection. The lid switch is to keep it from spinning with the door open. If it won't drain it won't spin it may have a hose blocked or the pump is not working. Check if the motor runs after it agitates. If it does is the pump turning? Check all hoses , from tub to pump, from pump to drain, check for sewer blockage. A sock or something could be in the hose from the tub to the pump, or in the pump not letting it drain. If it is agitating the coupler must be ok. Hope this helps.

I have a Kenmore washer tube wont move to spin out


Hi, Do you know if the washer agitated at all? If the washer does not agitate or spin, the coupler is most likely the cause. If the washer agitates and does not spin, it could be spin basket drive or transmission.
Please let me know so I can assist you further.

i would assume that perhaps you did not wind hte belt correctly arround the legs of the pump and therefore are not putting the correct tension on hte pulley(remember to hook spring back up to tension idler?)

Wont drain or spindry-model 110.13212200 topload


To check the lid switch set it on spin. Should spin with lid closed & not spin with lid open. What is your problem ? (not filling ) ( not agitating ) ( not draining) ( not spinning ) it won't have an exit filter.
If the lid switch is ok it should agitate drain & spin .. The lid switch could stop agitate on some & not on others. If it is not draining it could be the pump. Sometimes a sock or something small can go down the drain and get in the pump & stop it up then it won't drain
like it should. Always say what the problem is like agitate or spin.
Hope this helps
