Question about Washing Machines

Open Question

I just bought a Roper washer, model number RTW4440XQ. Even when I have the water level set at "high," the water level for the rinse cycle is extremely low--less than half the water level for the wash cycle. As a result, the clothing is getting agitated much too roughly, and the soap is not completely rinsed out. Is this a problem with the machine itself, or the installation, or something else?

SOURCE: full of soap

Possible your outlet filter is blocked. This requires cleaning depending on your usage. Plug off the wall, refer to manual re. outlet filter. Siphon out maximum water by removing the tube from behind machine which goes into wall drain. (refit this after cleaning into EXACT position) Clean outlet filter and refit. Good luck. When your outlet filter is clogged or blocked, the machine refuses to spin.

My Roper heavy duty 8 cycle 2 speed combination washer does not fill up on rinse cycle

when in rinse washers use just cold water so clothes don't wrinkle,try this,set the washer to just cold,start it and see if it fills or fills slowly if so you have a bad water valve on washer or no cold water going to washer.

Roper washing machine does not fill for rinse cycle. Goes directly to rinse agitate without water.

Without Model number I am only guessing but I suspect you have a blocked sensing tube that travels from the Level selector switch to the side of the tub somewhere. It is possible for this plastic tube to become partially clogged and not allow trapped air to vent when tub is drained of water. Usually this problem manifests itself as an overflow of the tub. Check the full length of this clear hose and see if the end nearest the tub looks like it may have debris or dirty detergent clogging it.

This hose is pushed onto a nipple mounted to a reservoir on the side of the tub. Push a thin copper wire 4-5 inches into the those after removing from nipple and also down into the nipple an inch or two before reinstalling the hose to the nipple. You MIGHT even blow into the hose while you have it off and you SHOULD hear a clicking sound coming from the level selector switch body.

Good Luck. Come back with Model number under lid if that doesn't help.

I have a Roper washing machine (Model: RTW4440XQ0, Serial #: C11740048) that is less than a year old. When you start the machine on any cycle (on high water level) it will fill up with water and run...

The machine was built to adhere to the low water guidelines of your overly intrusive government. Bought a new machine with the same problem. 1/2 tub of wash water and 3"-5" of rinse water. 3 different local service shops and the Whirlpool people said neither was adjustable. I found this unacceptable and decided I was going to make it work the way I wanted not the way the government schlocks said I must. Took out the 2 screws on either end of the control panel ( where all the controls are) lifted it up and found 2 ADJUSTABLE water level control switches. One 3-way for the wash water and one for rinse water. Cranked them both in and now I have a full tub of wash water and the same for rinse, Vote in 2012 to keep the government out of our homes and our lives,

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.

Roper washing machine RTW4440XQ, my mom sets the load for medium and when it is going to fill with water the second time before rinsing it only fill with water as if it was a small load. Does it have a...

All new washing machines in the US, as of 2011, must comply with Govt energy regulations. Save water & Destroy your clothes! This model has 2 pressure switches. The main one (on the left) controls the wash water level, and the rinse level switch (unseen, mounted to the right, controls the rinse water level. BOTH ARE ADJUSTABLE ! First - UNPLUG THE WASHER ! Tilt the control panel back. You will see the two pressure switches. In the center of each is a silver adjustment screw going into a white plastic plunger. Using a 3/16" socket or nut driver, turn the screw on the RIGHT SIDE pressure switch clockwise until it is almost all the way in to the white plastic plunger. The next step is a little trickier. Being careful not to touch any wires, Plug the washer in, Set the water level to HIGH, and start the washer . Raise the Lid, and observe the incoming water. It will stop when the pressure switch is satisfied - but the water level will be rediculously low. As you did with the Right side switch, adjust the LEFT side switch the same way - only 3-4 turns at a time. After each adjustment, push the white plunger in and it will begin to fill again. When it stops filling, check the water level - you may have to repeat this step 3 or four times, until the water level is 3 - 4" below the white plastic guard on the tub. That's it, Unplug the washer again, tilt the control panel back down & lock it in place. Plug the washer back in, lower the lid & let it run through the cycle. This repair will probably void your warranty, and is not recommended to ANYONE who is not familiar with tools, machinery and electricity. To those who can, **** the torpedoes and full speed ahead ! To those who can't, show this to your repairman. The advantages are 1- Cleaner clothes 2- Less damage to clothes 3- Less wear & tear on the machine, as it doesn't have to work as hard moving the load in too little water.
