Roper washer does not always spin.
Answer Hello Rich. We will need your model number to help you with this. Please call 1-877-477-7278 or post your model number with a new question on the parts page. http://www.appliancepartspros.com/modelnumber_locator.aspx
washer will spin and drain will not agitate.Pulled the transmission cover and its fine. Do you sell the oil for the transmission or can you use automotive type gear oil? I am guessing the timer is bad how do I do a pinpoint test on it? Or just order the timer and send it back if that doesn't fix it? the washer is 21 years old so I am not going to invest a whole lot of $$$ in it.
Answer Jeff, The part number for the gear oil is 6-0560800 Based on your post, the issue would be in the timer 22001025, if the motor operates in one direction, it's 99%, the motor is not the issue. Basically To pin point the issue in the timer you'd unplug the power cord, set the timer dial to a wash cycle, pull out the knob and disconnect the multi plug connector. Then you'd check for closed circuits between the contacts on the timer based on the wiring diagram and timer cam or cycle chart. But first, have you checked the lid switches and fuse. Yes, if the timer does not solve the issue, you can return the part for a refund, but you'll be responsible for the return shipping. Thanks
Is it difficult to replace the timer?
Answer Hello David,
It is not hard to replace the timer at all. Unplug the washer and take the screws out from across the top of the control panel. Remove the knob by popping the center out and remove the little "c" clip. Be careful not to lose it! Pull the outer part of the knob off and remove the two screws securing it to the panel. With the timer loose, you can depress the retaining clips on either side of the harness connector. Once you have removed both of the connectors, reverse the procedure to install the new timer. Reestablish the electrical connection, (plug it back in), and try the unit to insure the connections made and your done.
When my rinse cycle comes on, the water runs into the tub and and keeps draining out, and the water runs forever. If I do not turn it off. When I turn the timer back to the rinse cycle it sometimes works right.
Answer Hello Cindy. You will need to check and make sure there is an air gap for the drain hose to breath in the unit, and that the drain hose is not to far into the drain pipe and is siphoning out. It sounds like that is the issue with the information you provided.
You set how much water you want, and then the washer fills more than you want....is that a timer problem???
Answer Hello Richard. No, based on the information you provided, it sounds like the pressure switch 208202 or the pressure switch hose is bad and will need to be replaced. Check and see if the hose is torn or has a hole in it. If so, replace the hose. If not, it may just be the pressure switch. Hope this helps.
How do I remove the timer from the panel ? There are no visible screws...........
Answer Hi Michael. Remove the power. According to the timer noted part # 22001025, this is used on Lat8.... models. Since we do not have the exact model # it can be removed by Unscrewing the timer knob. The knob skirt is spring loaded so be careful not to loose the spring. then you can access the front screws that mount the timer. Remove the back and replace the timer. Re mount the new one and reassemble the unit. Thank You.
