There is a very loud repetitive noise only spinning cycle but not in regular washing cycles. I am wondering what part of washer cause this issue.
Answer Hello Sungwon. Check and see if the drive block 389140 is worn and bad in the unit. If so, it will cause the problems you are having. Hope this helps.
My Roper Washer is the washer from hell. I have taken it apart 4 times and still cant get it to agitate right once it fills with water. I can jump the lid switch and it spins and all the water is pumped out. I can turn the agitator by hand in both direction witch leads me to believe the transmission is ok. I have replaced the drive coupling and the clutch band. Tested motor as well. Any suggestions
Answer Hi Jermaine. The issue is that you need to isolate the motor from the transmission and see if it will run one direction w/ the reg. wash cycle. If it does then put the timer in spin and watch the motor reverse4 direction and run this direction. If you hear a hum from the motor in either cycle, then you know that the timer is OK and sending the voltage to the motor assy. This also tells you @ the wires going to the motor and good connections.; If you do not hear anything, then use a volt meter and see if the voltage is there on the windings per your supplied wiring diagram behind the timer. Then pull the agitator and see if the drive block under the hub nut is broken part # 389140. The spanner nut (tub nut) is part # 21366 if you need this as well. Thank You.
my roper washer is 1 year and 7 days old it fills with water ok won't adj.or spin the motor clicks but don't and you can here it want to go. i checked coupler and is fine.the motor spinns freally but when i reinstall the unit it's binding. any ideas?it feels like something in the drum is messed up? thanx chuck
Answer Chuck, With the motor and pump removed, try and turn the transmission coupler in both directions, it may be stiff and a little hard to turn in the counter clockwise direction(spin) but you should be able to turn the coupler in both directions if the transmission is OK, also with the motor disconnected, and with the harness attached you can put the timer in the spin selection and see if the motor runs, just be very careful. Good Luck and Thanks
Machine makes loud noise after spining. My question is, how to remove and replace the drive block in this model?
Answer Hello Sam. Disconnect the power to the unit. Remove the two screws in the back corners of the control panel securing the control panel. Pull the control panel forward and flip it backwards. Next unplug the lid switch and remove the two brass colored clips securing the cabinet to the back wall using a flat blade screwdriver to pry them out. Pull on the front of the cabinet and slide the cabinet off the frame of the washer. Once removed, you will remove the tub ring and the agitator out of the inner tub. Then remove the nut and inner bracket out of the washer. You can now access and replace the drive block 389140. Reinstall in reverse order. Hope this helps.
Machine fills and pumps out ok. Agitates ok. Drum does not spin on its own. Will catch if you spin it hard manually. Lid switch has been bypassed previously.
Answer Hello TS YWCA. Based on the information you provided, it sounds like the clutch assembly 8299642 is bad and will need to be replaced. Check and make sure the drive block 389140 is not broke. If not, you will need to replace the clutch. Hope this helps.
