This happened on mine as well. I determined that the clutch was bad. These are not belt driven but rather direct drive with a clutch/brake that controls the spins and agitate functions. Try washing an empty or very small load (like tshirts and underclothes) and see if that helps. ALso look underneath to see if there is any oil on the ground if so you most likley will need to replacet he cltuch mechanism... not an easy task for do it yourselfer!

Roper washer top loader. I have replaced the rods, the washer works fine until final spin, it's like out of balance.

Check the feet, they must all be firmly planted with equal weight and level left to right and front to back.

If your Roper washer shakes excessively during the spin cycle, this can be caused by your machine sitting on an uneven surface, worn-out rollers, or damaged feet. To solve this problem, you will need to level the floor where your washer is sitting or replace its wheels if there are any worn-out parts.

Why Does My Roper Washer Shake And How To Fix?

ROPER WASHER PULLEY SYSTEM WON'T SPIN OR DRAIN

There are a few potential causes for your Roper washer not spinning or draining:
  1. Drive belt: If the drive belt is broken or slipping, it could prevent the tub from spinning. Check the belt for any signs of damage or wear, and make sure it is properly tensioned.
  2. Lid switch: Even though you said the lid switch is ok, it's still worth checking it again as it is responsible for ensuring that the washer will not spin or drain unless the lid is closed.
  3. Motor coupler: The motor coupler connects the motor to the transmission and can wear out over time. If it has failed, the washer won't spin or agitate. Check the coupler for any signs of wear or damage.
  4. Drain pump: A clogged drain pump or pump motor failure can prevent the washer from draining. Check the pump and clean out any debris that may be blocking it.
  5. Control board: The control board could also be a potential culprit, especially if the washer is not completing cycles correctly. Check the board for any signs of damage or malfunction.
  6. Transmission: If none of the above solutions work, there may be an issue with the transmission. This will require a professional repair.
I hope this helps you diagnose and fix the issue with your Roper washer.

Washing machine does not spin in any cycle

Hello, It can be one of two things, the contacts in the dial can have worn or broke causing the relay not to open or close to activate spin cycle.

Most likely it is your transmission or main gear for your spin cycle.

I hope its the dial which is an easy fix, but the trans is a big project IF the washer is worth it. You may consider looking for new/used washer if trans is bad. Good Luck.

Why doesn't my washer spin out more water. After spinning cycle clothes is quite wet. Could it be a loose belt?

Their is no belt. The washer uses a double shafted motor which drives the pump on one end and the tranny on the other end. You must have a small item of clothing in the tub to pump hose. This washer is easy as pie to repair by anyone. Just a few inexpensive tools and you can fix this washer. Here is a link to 4 videos and a training manual. How it works: Direct drive washer

Washing machine works up to the spin cycle, it does not spin it does however empty the water. this is a roper brand top load machine about 5 yrs old.

Lid switch. A safety mechanism used to make sure lid is closed in spin cycle. You can bypass this switch by placing the wires that go to switch together. DO NOT do this if you have children or do not want to remove that safety feature some require because they dont know better than to open a washer in spin cycle. :)
