Roper washer shaking
« on: December 09, 2008, 03:49:21 PM »
Model Number: RAL5144BW1 icon


Our Roper washing machine started shaking when spinning. I put a level on top of it to make sure it was balanced. It still shook violently. I found the breakdown at http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=256978.  I checked all 3 suspension springs and the balance spring.  They all look good.  What else can I do to diagnose the problem?

check the balance ring. It may have come loose from the top of the tub.

About the icons: The beer is tip link, if a tech saves ya some money buy em a 6 pack. The small green square=personal message. The green dot is a link to my web page on appliance repair and other general BS I love to post. The letter sends me email.
