Re: My washer wont spin....
Plug off the wall socket; open up behind the machine, your belt may have come off. Put it on back on the wheel, the belt should 'give' half an inch, if it is more, replace with new. While inserting the belt, it should first be fitted on the small wheel, then eased on to the bigger one, by turning by hand the big wheel

First determine whether all the water is pumping out before it goes into spin. If not, check the pump and drain. If its not spinning fast enough with an empty tub check that there isnt any article of clothing caught between the inner and outer tubs or tub top ring. If thats ok check the clutch by turning the main drive pulley CCW. Substantial drag should be felt before the basket overcomes momentum and begins to turn. There is no repair for the clutch on this machine. The transmission must be replaced.
Does the washer spin on rinse and drain cycles ok? If it does spin but won't drain, the problem is the plasic impeller in your drain pump. This model is a direct drive unit with a reversing motor that runs one direction for agitate, but reverses to spin the tub and operate the drain pump. So if it spins but DOES NOT drain, it's the drain pump, but if it doesn't spin or drain, than it's probably a lid switch. Also the tub to pump hose or pump discharge hoses may be clogged with something. If your mechanically apt, you can do this repair yourself and save a service charge. The pump runs about 30 dollars or so and is really easy to change out. Check out Youtube videos on Whirlpool washer repairs, they will show you everything to do. Yes, I said Whirlpool, because Roper is built by Whirlpool.
Hey there... Im working on my washing machine today also and I had the exact same problem. you just have to pull it upwards until it comes off... You have to kinda use your fingers and put them way at the bottom part of the agitator and pull up!..
Hello there: Spin cycleIf
the washer doesn't reach its proper spin speed, the clothes may be too
wet at the end of a cycle. Check to be sure the load is properly
balanced and run a spin cycle again. If the clothes are still wet, you
may have a worn or loose belt, a worn clutch ,
or a worn motor pulley or tub bearing. Replace the applicable component.
there could be clothes caught between the inner and outer tubs. Read
the "It spins but won't pump" section of the "It won't drain" section.
Also, there could be other things that cause friction on the drive
train. Seek the assistance of a qualified appliance repair technician.SiphoningIf
the water that pumps from the machine goes right back into the machine
after the spin cycle, it may be because your washer is siphoning the
water from a laundry tub with a slow drain, back into the washer. Try to
improve the draining of the laundry tub. (Is there something stuck in
the drain?) Also, be sure the drain hose doesn't reach more than about 4
inches into the laundry tub. If it does, cut off the excess. then retry ok
rear pulley nut is loose. tighten . if it has been loose for a while pulley may be warped and also tub bearing and spin basket could be bad. dont have your specific model # to know if in warranty . can go to wpl .com and check warranty with your model # or kenmore then go to sears.com . i would use another servicer we waive are service fee if you fix the washer we only charge 65.00 service call. im sure you can find a servicer with a lower service call. thats the highest ive ever heard they will charge you double what anyone else charges.worse case scenerio could be 300-400 dollars if tub, pulley , spin basket need to be replaced. but i say its worth you replacing pulley or checking nut any other repairs for this i would just replace unit. again check your warranty i think the spin basket has a 10-20 yr warranty.
im a repairman,lets reason this out.if washer wont spin because the tub is so warped that when it spins its so out of balance then ok new tub.or the tub welds are broken and some part is dragging and not letting it spin then ok new tub.or spin bearing has failed and ruined tub support shaft,ok new tub.but why else would you need a new tub for a no spin problem,not sure,and to answer your other question , can you fix the tub if any of the above problem exist.no you would have to replace tub.i hope that helps,God bless ,tom....ps if i have been helpful please remember to help me with my ratings,tom
the drum wont spinn with wate in it(very fast anyway). if you remove the agitator, the inner tub lifts right out(its a floating basket) perhaps an article of clothes has gotten below it preventing free floating of the tub. While out ive als seen where the metal spline/shaft has worn down the plastic counterpart and the tub has nothing to grabonto to allw to spin, the sppline and plastic counterpart are very apparent after removing the agitator, they sell a spline repair kit(new spline and holder (3 screws) easy repair.
