Why Doesn’t My Roper Washing Machine Work At All

If your Roper washer isn’t responding. Begin by ruling out the obvious: is it not plugged in? Is the circuit tripping? To test whether the electrical outlet is the cause and to determine the cause, plug a dryer or any other electrical device into it. If the hair dryer does not work, the wiring in the outlet may be the issue.

Contact an electrician to repair the electrical outlet. The problem with the wiring could be in the washer if the hair dryer does not work. Here are the steps to confirm the wiring within your Roper washer:

  1. Unplug the Roper washer. Check the power cord for damage. Replace the power cord if it’s damaged.
