Question about Roper RAS8445KQ Top Load Washer

Roper Washing Machine works after I jolt it

I have a roper washing machine and it will fill with water and go through the wash cycle, but when it gets to the rinse cycle it stops and makes a humming noise, like it is stuck. If I tilt it back a few inches and let fall back to the floor it will start working again. It will then finish the remaining cycles. Before I start buying parts for it, does anyone have any suggestions for me. Thank You Doug

My 5 year old Roper washing machine fills up, washes/agitates the cloths, drains them when the washer get to the rinse line to start the rinse cycle it stops, and all I hear is a humming. The machine will...


I'm not familiar with roper washing machines so I'll ask the question does it have two fill hoses. Most European machines now only have one fill. If it has two then it sound like the machine takes the initial water from the one fill and the rinse cycle water from another. The humming sounds like the valve for the other fill needs replacing. These are quite inexpensive and easy to fit. Power off.. remove lid ....switch of water...take out valve when you establish which one is affected and replace

I have a Roper washer. It filled with water to wash, but when it came to draining the water to rinse, it just stops. It will add water on rinse cycle, but it will not drain or spin.


Sounds like the lidswitch. As a safety, the tub will not spin if the door is up (open). In turn, it will not drain if it wont spin. This is a common problem with whirlpool washers. You can go to searspartsdirect.com to get the breakdown and order the part.

My Roper top loading machine will work fine on wash cycle, but will not fill up with water on rinse cycle. Please help


Check for a cold water supply problem, since it is cold water that gets used in the rinse. Remove the water supply hoses from the machine and check the small screens inside the water inlet valve. Make sure they aren't clogged with rust or debris. The solenoids can be checked using a multimeter or ohmmeter for continuity. A lack of continuity indicates a faulty solenoid. I will attach a photo for reference. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Kenmore front-load washer stops at rinse cycle


When the washer initially fills for the wash, is it only hot water entering the drum? Try switching the water temperature between hot and cold as it fills. If any of them show little or no water getting through, it sounds too easy but check to make sure water supply taps are on, and that the cold/hot fill hoses aren't reversed. Remove the fill hoses and check any of the screen filters for blockage (in the hoses and in the inlet water valve). When the machine stops and waits to fill but all you hear is a hum, it sounds like there is power going to the valve but water is not able to get through it.
Good luck!
