Washing Machine Problem

I have an older Roper washing machine. It's probably 12 years old. It has just developed a problem where it will stop in the middle of the wash cycle and just sit there. If I open and close the lid, it starts back. Is this a problem with the lid switch (for lack of a better term), or is it time to retire it altogether?

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

Washing machine is getting stuck on rinse cycle washer is only 8 mths old please advise

Good day,
If the machine is under one year old, all mechanical problems are covered for you by the manufacturer.
Contact your selling dealer first for service. If they don't perform warranty repair themselves they will advise you who to call. Roper is a product of the Whirlpool Corp.

Our washer is leaving a greasy residue around and on the top of the drum.

If the age of your machine is over 10-12 years old, you could have a model that uses a transmission and the trans is leaking. If it is the transmission, it could be about a $150+ part.

Older washer designs used a motor to drive a transmission to agitate and spin the wash tub. As these get older, some develop small holes in the drive shaft (up under the agitator) which lets the trans grease get into the wash water. Our old washer lasted 23 years before the tub started to rust, so we decided it was time to get a new one, rather than put money into such an old machine.

IF your washer is older than 15 years, it might be starting to develop some other issues, such as rusting tub, etc., that could be costly to replace those parts, like the transmission, so you need to determine if
you want to repair or replace the machine.

If you can provide a model number, with all the alphas and digits, including the pre-printed ones on the label or tag, it could be confirmed that your washer uses a transmission and that is the likely source of the grease you're seeing.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!
