RAS 8445KQ0 Roper Washer Wont Spin
« on: November 08, 2008, 09:49:47 PM »

My Roper washer made by Whirlpool wont complete the spin cycle leaving clothes soppy wet.  Does anyone know if this model is a direct drive or belt drive and how this can be fixed and any guides available to do this?

Use the Search box above and type "Whirlpool washer won't spin" . Then you will see the several hundred posts about the subject :)

Roper is a Whirlpool low-end brand.

I looked up your model and it has no belt. The number one problem with this washer is the drive coupling.
