Your Roper Washer may stop working properly, and you need to get it fixed as soon as possible. In this article, we will discuss how to reset Roper Washer.
STEP 1. Disconnect the power cord from the washer and remove the drain hose from the top of the washer.
STEP 2. Using a flat-head screwdriver, remove the screws securing the control panel cover.
STEP 3. Locate and remove all of the screws securing each panel on either side of the control panel cover, then lift up on each panel until it detaches from its clips at each corner.
STEP 4. Disconnect all of the electrical connections to the control panel by removing all of its connectors (located at each corner).
STEP 5. Using a flat-head screwdriver, pry off both sides of the plastic covering that covers a circuit board located on top of the washer (it will be a black rectangle with four white plugs sticking out).
STEP 6. After removing two screws securing a black plug (a connector) located in the front right corner on the circuit board, disconnect the black plug by pulling it straight out.
STEP 7. Remove the circuit board by gently pulling it out of the washer.
STEP 8. Turn off the power to the washer, then disconnect the electrical cord from the wall outlet by removing its plug from its socket.
STEP 9. Remove the screws securing a black plastic plate (a shroud) to each side of the control panel by removing them with a flat-head screwdriver.
STEP 10. Using a flat-head screwdriver, pry off both sides of each plastic shroud located on top of each control panel to free it from its clips at each corner.
STEP 11. Remove two screws securing each circuit board on either side of the control panel cover by removing them with a flat-head screwdriver, then lift up on each circuit board until it detaches from its clips at each corner to remove it from the washer.
STEP 12. After removing all four screws securing both circuit boards, turn off all power to your Roper Washer and disconnect all electrical connections by removing their plugs from their sockets (make sure that you disconnect both electrical connections at both ends of your washing machine).
You will have to remove both plugs to reset your Roper Washer. If one plug fails to release, then you may have removed it with too much force. Try removing it again until it comes out easily.
Take note of where each circuit board was located before you removed them from your washing machine so that you can re-install them in reverse order (front panel first) when putting everything back together again.
This will ensure that they are installed correctly and nothing is missing or upside down when they are installed back into your washing machine.
