Question about Roper RAS6233KQ Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Washer won't start/fill/spin -- anything

I have a Roper RAS833PQ that is only about 18 months only. It won't do anything. It just died. It was working fine and then nothing. I have checked the power source and the fuse box. There is power going to the washer. I've seen some things about a "lid switch," but I'm not sure how to check that. Please help!

    The machine doesn't do anything. It just sits there. I have lifted and lowered the lid and it does click. I tried to use each temperature setting and cycle, but it does nothing. There is no water coming in. No spinning. Nothing. It is absolutely dead.
    If it doesn't do anything at all, can the timer or lid switch (if those are the problems) be replaced inexpensively without having to call in a repair person? Or do I just have a giant paper weight sitting in my basement?

    With the lid down, hold down the Start button until you hear a click. The washer should begin to fill.

Dea, does the washer fill? If it fills and justs sits there it could be the pressure switch. If it fills, agitates and then no spin no drain, then it's the lid switch. If it doesn't do any of the above, it may be a timer issue. Lift the lid and gently lower it, do you hear a click when the actuator on the lid hits the switch? I will attempt to attach a picture on how the consol flips up to see the lid switch harness, pressure switch and timer. Your model will have two screws that must be removed, they maybe in back of the end caps. To remove the lid switch unclip the clips on the right and left side, unplug the harness and tip the cabinet foward. You will see how the lid switch mounts to the cab. back

    Dea, if you have power at the outlet and the machine doesn't do anything it's more than likley your timer. Even if the lid switch was bad the washer would fill. There are some tests you could do buy you would have to have a meter. For the model number of ras6233kq0 the part number for the timer is 3953146. The price is around 68.30 for the timer. With-out being there and doing some voltage checks, and what you are describing I would believe it's the timer. It's an easy job. But try unpluging the harness to the timer and reseating it first. back.

I looked up your model number. You particular machine allows for wash with the lid open. You nothing happens. On that case I would check the motor capacitor.

The refrigerator on our Roper side by side refrigerator/freezer has frozen everything from veggies to milk. Any clue as to what the problem might be? Greg Russell

Your thermostat has probably got its contacts withing fried together and it is not shutting down.
Obviously the compressor and fans are working fine. It has to be in your control. Your ice box has a mercury based control. The temp is controled by it and nothing else. It can fail by burnt out contact. (open) OR Fried together contacts (stuck together won't shut down). OR Loss of mercury in the probe.OR kinked probe.
