Roper washing machine is not agitating. Makes a horrendous noise when supposed to be aggitating. No noise when filling with water.


In addation to the agitation does it make the same noise in spin??
If yes it makes that same noise in spin the problem is going to be a broken motor coupler. I have written this tip about a broken motor coupler it will show ya how to take apart the washer and replace the coupler.

No spinning on any of my spin cycles

If this is the Roper top load washer, you probably need a new motor coupler. Always unplug your appliance before repairing. There are two screws located on the front corners of the control panel. Remove these screws and tilt the control panel back. There are two clips holding the cabnet to the rear panel. Remove the two clips and remove the wiring harness with the 3 wires going to the cabnet. Tilt the cabnet forward and remove. Remove the two clips holding the pump in place and remove the pump from the motor. Remove the two screws hold the two clips holding the motor on. Remove the clips and the motor. Using a large screw driver remove the white plastic coupling from the rear motor shaft and the other half on the transmission shaft. Tap the new coulpler on with the end of a 3/8 socket extention so that the face of the plastic coupler is flush with the shaft. Insert the rubber part of the coupler in between the two halv'es of the coupler and reinstall the motor.
Reinstall the pump and put the cabnet back on. Reinstall the clips holding the cabnet on and the wiring harness. Tilt the control panel back in place and replace the two screws. Plug your maching back in and test. I hope this helps.

Roper top load washing machine that won't aggitate

Hi, It is most likley that the coupler is bad. The coupler connects the motor to the transmission. If the motor runs and you get neither spin or agitate, this is the most common problem. If this is something you want to try and fix, you can go to and there I have a detailed article on how to change the coupler.
I hope this helps you. If I can assist you further, please let me know.

ROPER RAX4232KQ1 Does not spin

You most likely have a broken coupler between the motor and transmission. A new coupler cost around $10 and is fairly simple to replace.
Remove the two screws that hold the console to the cabinet and flip the console back.
Remove the two clips that hold the cabinet to the rear panel of the washer and unplug the lid switch harness. The cabinet will tilt forward and slide off.
Remove the clips holding the water pump and move it to the side.
Unplug the wires from the motor and remove the clips holding it.
You will see the motor coupler.
Make sure you can turn the gearcase shaft with a pair of pliers so it is not locked up.
Post back and let me know what you find out.

Washer is filled but will not wash or rinse, there is a noise when trying to run. It will drain but not spin, and it will fill

Probably has a bad motor coupler between motor and transmission. Remove 2 screws in front or in back of console on ends. Shake console back and forth while pulling up. It will raise up in front and pivot back. Disconnect plug for lid switch on washer top. Remove 2 gold colored clips with flat blade screwdriver. Make note of how they go in first. Open lid and grab washer cabinet and pull forward, lifting washer cabinet off frame. Remove pump with 2 clips. Remove 2 screws holding motor clips. Remove clips. Remove motor. Look for broken fingers on coupler. Should have 3 on motor and transmission parts of coupler. If not, replace coupler. Very common part.
When re-assembling, tilt back cabinet and put front edge under frame. Then lower cabinet to base. Make sure sides are in frame. Install clips by hitting down with palm of hand. Install connector. Lower and install console screws.

Roper washer

Sounds like you have a motor coupler problem. Its located between the motor and the transmission. If you wanted to remove it yourself, its really not that hard a job. Remove the cabinet, pull the motor, and you will see the coupler. Let me know if you need further info. Jim
