You’re not the sole person who is wondering why your Roper washer is draining in a single go. It’s a common issue and is caused by many things.

This article will discuss the most common causes and giving step-by-step directions on how to fix the Roper washer that has both drains and fills at the same time. This guide is designed for those who are a skilled DIYer or an amateur. It will guide you through how to fix your Roper washer back to working and in good working order no matter what level you’re at.


Water Inlet Valve

The water inlet valve on the inside of your Roper washing machine allows you to provide the tub with hot, cold, or warm water for the wash and rinse cycles. The solenoids in the electric circuit control the valve. They are controlled by the electronic control board, the timer and the water level control/water selector or the pressure switch. The valve that lets water into the water can be the source of the problem if the Roper washer fills up after the draining cycle. If the problem continues remove the plug from your washer.

If the Roper washer continues to fill, the inlet valve is malfunctioning. If the Roper washer does not fill the water, then the issue is in the electrical circuit that is controlling the valve. What you can do to check the water inlet valve inside theRoper washing machine using the aid of a multi-meter

  1. Connect the water supply as well as the power source from your Roper washer prior to beginning.
  2. The valve needs to be removed in order to test it. It can be found in the hose connections. To remove the valve, you will need to disassemble your washer’s cabinet.
  3. Inside the valve you will find screens that might have the accumulation of dirt and other particles. Clean up any debris or dirt you find. These screens are not sold on their own and need to be replaced in the event of damage. Also, inspect the valve’s exterior for cracking or wear and damage.
  4. Consult the manual of your owner since the resistance reading for a functional valve varies between different models of Roper washer’s. When you’ve got the desired reading, turn your multimeter to Rx1 to connect the terminals of the valve’s terminals.
  5. If this test confirms that your valve does not have continuity, then you’ll require a Roper replacement valve for water inlet.


The water level switch, also known as a pressure switch and air dome tube

The water level switch, activated by water pressure is used to set the water level within the tub. The switch is usually located behind the control panel, and it will have a hose or air dome tube connecting it to the tub. For Roper washers, which have an electronic control switch, the switch might be situated in the sump area under the tub. The water will be able to fill the tub and pressurize the air inside, pressing against the diaphragm.

The valve that opens the water will be controlled by the switch and the valve will shut off when the water level is in order. What is the best way to test the water level switch of theRoper washing machine

  1. Before working with electric components, you must unplug the appliance.
  2. Start by opening the Roper cabinet to the washer, and then taking out the air dome. Put the hose in water and seal the end. Then , blow the other end into the water. If any bubbles rise up to the surface, you will need a new air dome hose.
  3. Inspect the switch and the Hose for signs of cracking, fraying, wear, or damage.
  4. You can change the water level switch in case it’s damaged. In the end we can say that a Roper washer that fills and drains simultaneously can be a frustrating problem to resolve If you have the right knowledge and tools this issue is fixable.


It’s possible to quickly address the most frequently encountered issues, like an obstruction in the drain hose or malfunctioning water inlet valve, or an issue with the pressure switch. Make sure you refer to your Roper washer’s owner’s manual to find specific guidelines and to disconnect the appliance prior to making any repairs. You can get your Roper washer operating like new with a bit of effort and understanding.
