There is a pocket on the side of the drum which is designed to trap air, this air pressure
in turn operates a switch to shut off the fill valve. It has a clear hose running to it and
sometimes lint will get caught in the line at the drum connection. You can open the
top control panel (usually the two screws at the base of the panel) and the panel
will hinge up. Make sure you unplug machine before servicing. The switch will be
obvious as it has one clear line and two connections on it, It is round. Remove the line
and blow into it to be sure that any lint clogging this line is cleared. Reattach and test if
you cleared a clog. If the line is clear then I would replace the switch. model is under the lid
One other possibility is that the fill valve stuck open, but I have never
seen this happen in 10 years servicing top loaders and stacks. Hope this helps. :)

Does the roper washing machine top loader model# RTW4340SQ0 have a place to put in the liquid softener?


I have the same question but have not find a manual or any other reference that tells me whether this model has a softener dispenser or not. However, I just found this info: http://www.repairclinic.com/PartDetail/Fabric-Softener-Dispenser/8575076A/1195942 which is linked to roper washing machine RTW4340SQ0 parts list. It looks as if the washer doesn't come with the softener dispenser as original equipment but that you can buy this dispenser at repair clinic and just assemble it to the agitator as shown in the video that you will find in the link

I have a roper Model # rtw4340sq0 that when on the "super" water level setting, just continues to fill ( and drain) when it gets to the rince cycle.


Sounds like the water is siphoning out of the drain hose.
Check the drain hose behind the washer to make sure it's higher then the high water level in the washer.
