Roper direct drive, 1 in 4 oportunities doesn't spin
« on: July 12, 2013, 02:32:49 AM »
Hi: I have a 2011 Roper direct drive washer, (2 water level switches)
Its NEW! , but SOMETIMES and only SOMETIMES its not spinning.

I bypass the lid switch and same thing , 3 or for times spins and other no
Coupler its fine
Timer its fine
When finish the agitate action stops, then starts to drain water, then stops, then start to spin
Since the moment that some times spins full loaded I assume is not the clutch problem
At spinning time the clutch outside is not hot (is not slipping)
I do not see the clutch lining out of place
do you think is the transmission starting to fail?
Regards

  Observe the clutch hub when you are having the problem of no spin. If it is spinning, the transmission is ok, the clutch band is slipping. May be because the clutch is failing or could be something else preventing the basket from spinning such as clothing caught between the tubs or sticking brakes.

It's your transmission, but luckily, it's easily repairable.  Remove the transmission, remove the top and replace the neutral components.  There's no need to replace the gear oil. Part number is 388253.
