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

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!

Beko WME8227S stuck 'play' symbol on display flashes on off, can't change any function etc. Hi, I have a beko WME8227S washing machine. Initially it stopped working (it ran a full cycle and then got stuck on drain and spin, so all the items were soaking wet). I just ignored this and set the spin cycle going manually. Then the spin cycle began to fail and it would just count down but never really got through the cycle. Then finally I set the washer on a 9hr time overnight and came to find it totally stuck at the end of a cotton cycle. I held the reset for three seconds and set it going again but it just got stuck straight away with the start symbol flashing on/off on the display. It now wouldn't reset or change anything, no buttons worked. I did a diagnostic and it gave E11 code. I change the carbon brushes and it worked perfectly - once. It stopped working again but and again got stuck at the beginning of a cotton 90 cycle and won't start the cycle at all. When I do diagnostic is just gives 8364 (I beleive this is a software number). Can't now make it change cycle or start. It just says 00:00 and the play button flashes on/off. Can't reset it by pressing start/pause/cancel button as nothing happens. Tried leaving it unplugged overnight but I turn it on and the same shows on the display. If I move the wheel and press play, no matter what cycle it's on it changes to 02:36 (which is the length of time for the cotton cycle) but nothing happens when you press any button. I was then advised to change the PCB which I did, turned it on and it literally picked up where it left off with the old PCB but now the diagnostic shows 8365 as the message. If I turn off/on the machine now shows 00:16 on the display but can't change cycle or cancel this off. Anyone got any ideas?
