Washer is driving me CRAZY
« on: December 03, 2010, 11:22:57 PM »

First let me start off with i hope that i'm post this in the right spot i've searched the forum and tried to test everything i could find that was here sorry if i missed something. I have a Roper MOD RTW44OVQ1 SER CY432725 and after it fills up it starts to agitate or actual wash the load for about 5 second and the it stops and it makes a loud buzzing sound then nothing and if you just let it sit there for a minute or so it does it again kind of like a limit switch resetting or something ive already took it apart and looked at the coupler in between the motor and transmission or gearbox because i seen where someone had suggested to someone else that its usually the problem and it looks fine the lid switch seems good too it clicks when i open and close it. The only other thing i've seen is the timer and i dont know how to check it

One possible area to check is the connector where the wiring harness plugs into the motor . Wiggle it and see if the washer starts . sometimes you can get a bad connection .The last one I did had a loose white connector causing the problem . Trouble is the customer motor block was pitted and burnt and was not repairable
