A malfunctioning Roper washing machine can be a frustrating experience particularly if it is unable in its quest to get to the next cycle. This problem can cause you to be left with a heap of damp clothes that are in dire need of cleaning. Knowing the causes the reason your washer won’t go on into the next cycle could save you both time and money by avoiding unnecessary repair or replacement. We will discuss some typical reasons why your Roper washing machine may not advance to the next cycle and give some advice on how to bring it back functioning normally.
The reason a Roper washer will not move into the next cycle varies on the model of washer you own.
If the lid switch for a top load Roper washer is damaged, the washer will not advance to the drain or spin cycle. Roper washers that don’t finish the cycle may be experiencing a malfunctioning timer or damaged pressure switches on the water level.
A bad shifter assembly, or a malfunctioning drain pump could cause a vertical modular top load (VMW) washer to shut down mid-cycle. This washer can also stop mid-cycle if there’s too much suds.
A front-load washer may be stopped from running a cycle when it has a damaged washer door lock or main electronic control board malfunction, or motor control board issues. When the washer detects an issue, this model of Roper washer sends an error message in digital format to the computer. The cycle is stopped.
These repairs may help solve the Roper washer issue.
Replace the Roper lid switch on the washer
The lid switch on top load Roper washer is a safety switch that checks whether the lid on the washer is closed. The lid has to be shut when the basket spins; when the washer does not sense that the lid is opened it won’t spin, and drain following the wash cycle.
Some top-load models require that the Roper washer lid be closed before the washer drive motor begins to run. Top-load washers that have an open lid are not able to fill.
Replace the switch if the lid switch does not detect that the lid is closed.
Replace the Roper washer shifter assembly
The bottom part of the washer houses the shifter assembly known as the actuator-in top-load washer. The motor of the shifter assembly shifts the drive system’s direction between agitation mode and the spin mode. The location of the drive system is monitored through a sensor that is mounted on the shifter. The washer will stop when the sensor, motor or mechanical component of the shifter assembly fail and generate an error message. If the Roper Shifter Assembly malfunctions Replace it.
Change the Roper washer lock assembly
Roper’s front load washer lock includes a security switch that can detect if the door to the washer is closed , as well as an latch. If one of these components fail when the door is open, the door won’t shut; if any component fails while the door is closed, the door will not open. If any part fails, replace the whole assembly.
Replace the main control board of your Roper washer
The primary Roper electronic controller board, also known as the mother board or the mother board, is responsible for the execution and timing of the washer’s component functions. It controls the drain valves and fill valves pumps, as well as the drive motor.
The Roper washer timer should be replaced
The Roper washing machine’s timer, also referred to as a cycle selector is the dial you turn to select the timer. The timer lets the Roper washer spin through its cycles, starting from the initial filling stage to the final spin. If the timer doesn’t move the washer through its cycles, it’s time to replace it.
Repair or replace the Roper washer drain pump
The Roper drain pumps draw water from washers at the appropriate timings during washing cycles. The bearing of the pump is susceptible to wear, and the seal could fail. The belt in belt-driven pump can wear out, and the pulley’s ring can break off. A malfunctioning pump could produce a sound when the washer is filled. In some instances you can repair the pump by cleaning it of debris as well as fixing wiring problems or replacing the seal. If the pump is unable to be repaired or rebuilt in any way, replace it.
Replace the Roper washer motor controller board
The Roper motor control board is a control circuit board in a front-load washer which is usually located in the lower part of the washer, next to the drive motor. It controls the speed of the drive motor and the direction it is directed for the spinning and tumble movements. If the motor doesn’t run then the motor control panel could need to be replaced.
Replace the Roper washer water level pressure switch
The Roper water-level pressure switch measures the water level in the wash tub. The washer may not fill up correctly if the water-level pressure sensor has been damaged. It might not fill properly or overfill until it overflows. Replace the pressure switch if it fails to detect and regulate the water levels in the Roper washer.
