Question about Roper RTW4305S Top Load Washer / Dryer

Open Question

My Roper RTW4305S is making a LOUD ratcheting-clank sound every time the agitator is in use. Any ideas? Is it fatal to my washer, or is it just aggravating?

SOURCE: loud noise while agitating in wash cycle

If you begin dissassembly from the tub down, you wil come to the transmission with the spindle sticking out of it. If you undo the bendable tabs all around the transmission it comes apart in two halves. Careful, its full of oil. The spindle has a plastic gear bolted to the bottom of it. It meshes with other gears in the tranny. It has sheered teath and is making the noise.

SOURCE: Roper RAX4232KQ - Top part of agitator won't turn

you need to install new agitator dogs . very in expensive. remove cap on top of agitator reach in and remove opaque cover. you should see a 1/2 " bolt remove that and pull up on agitator. pull apart two halves. disassemble. install four dogs. reassemble in reverse order

SOURCE: My Capacity Plus Admiral Washer will spin and agitate, but it makes a loud grinding noise.

Well, Sounds to me like the Bearings are going out, but it could make that noise a good while, before it goes completely out.. Replacement would possably be more cost effective, Kinda hard to beleive !!!!!!

The direct drive coupling between the motor and transmission has stripped out.
It must be replaced.

My GE wjre5550h1ww waher makes a continuos loud clank/bang noise when time the washer is in the soak/agitator cycle. Rinse and spine cycle, normal noise/sound. Please help! Thanks


The part (it has three prongs) that the transmission (yes your washing machine has a transmission) uses to cause the reciprocating motion of agitation has broken off 1 or 2 of the 3 prongs, and, if you
continue to use the washer (you might as well, the part is broken already - you may as well run it until it dies), the part will break completely, and you'll lose the soak/agitator cycle altogether.
FIX: replace the broken 3-prong plate, and give it a nice coating of automotive bearing grease to help it last for awhile (until the next thing breaks).

Amana washing machine makes loud noice when trying to spin


sounds like you are dealing with the same problem as me .
take off the front panel (after unplugging power) take a flash lite and look at the large pulley at the back just below the pulley is the helix check to see if they are worn .

yes i have a roper ras6233kg top load washer. I have not had any problem with it until about Two weeks ago, it over filled and it would only make a hummuing sound. Now it has dried out and have been working beautifully. Then Three days ago it stopped agitating,will not spin only making a loud humming noise. I guess its time to get another one.
