Roper washing machine model RTW4340SQ0 Unbalanced

Roper washing machine banging and walking when in the spin cycle. I checked all the suspension springs and the water filled balancing ring. All in good shape. Checked and re-leveled machine side to side and front to back. Machine still does it. I noticed that the pads on the skate disc are worn, but the tub base pads are not. After running, the drum sags to the right. I can level it by hand, but it doesn't stay there, it migrates back to the right sided sag. I know I should replace the skate disc pads, and will do so, but it doesn't seem that this should cause this problem. I expected to see a broken suspension spring, but didn't. Can anybody tell me, is the water filled balance ring supposed to be totally full of water or just partially full? There's water in it, but it sloshes around freely inside. Thanks for any help.

SOURCE: rear motion from left to right

Your springs should not be the issue, the body will rot around them before they do. It sounds like shocks to me. I would probably look into all 4 corners, but the rears at least.

SOURCE: Rear end is sagging aaallloootttt!

What has probably happened is you got a hole or cracks in your airbag. Dealerships and mechanics typically diagnoses it as the compressor but that is only to keep you coming back and wasting more money on something that will never truly be fixed. Both the airbag and the compressor are the problem. The compressor has to work extra hard because it is like blowing up a balloon with a hole in it. Therefor the airbag will kill the compressor. I would recommend going to and taking a look at the conversion kits. these convert you from the airbag to a powder coated American made steel coil spring that is guaranteed to last the life of the car. This is a PERMANENT fix. I added the link below so you can check it out. I hope I was of some help Good Luck!!!

SOURCE: The 1996 Jaguar headliner is sagging in the rear

The problem is that the foam that is glued to the fabric. It becomes crumbly and disintegrates into messy little bits that get into your hair and all over your car's interior. Trying to spray glue, while the headliner is still up there, won't work for long. The foam will keep crumbling and glue won't stick to it. It's sort of like trying to glue some cloth to the ground. No way will it stick.

There is a temporary fix on the do-it-yourself aisles in the automotive weekend warrior stores. It is a product that has a little curly cue, and a clear plastic head. The product is called a "Saggy Stopper". The clear head blends in with your headliner's color. It looks promising for a temporary fix.

My car makes a banging noise coming from the back end when driving slowly what can it be. Nothing looks loose under the car

You'll probably need to actually try to move various parts to locate the problem.
I'd be checking suspension components, bushings, shock absorber connections first.
Make sure the wheel nuts are all tight.
Make, year and model would help us to help you.

Peugeot axle problems

Rear suspension gone weak, you don't say which model it is, but as it affecting both rear wheels, I would say its a torsion bar set up, which is bushed and fixed to the trailing arms on splines, if the bar has gone weak it puts a negative camber on the wheels and drops the clearance between body and axle. Hope that explains things.

Magtag dryer is making a knocking noise...still dries the clothes well

It is so common that the washing machine can make terrible noise in many ways and is a common fault. In all occasions it is important that your observation is most important and so is vital to the identification /rectification and solution. If you have noticed that machine is vibrating when it is running then the motor /drum suspension has to be inspected. Since these fittings are located on the underside of the machine it is important that you look for the noise with a good inspection lamp. Manually turn the motor and drum and listen for the noise, if so the motor bearings, the drum agitator shaft and fittings must be checked. Also the suspensions which include the shock absorbers and springs, the body clamps must be checked to be in correct alignment and not changed in position. Tightening of the mounting is also very important. Finally in most cases a drop of OIL or smear of grease on the moving parts cane solve most issues.

My washing machine wont wash. It will fill with water and drain in spin cycle. Someone help me! Could it be the belt?

It sounds like your "Agitator" or "spinner" is not working. It is hard to say without more details.

Here's a tip anyways:

Get a small socket set, and pull out your washer. Either on the back or the front of the machine (usually the back), there will be 6 to 12 small nuts and bolts that can be removed to pull the cover from the washer.

Once you have the cover off, run the machine and watch it. You will notice where the problem is if you keep your eyes open for it. Try setting it to "spin" to see if it spins. If it does, then go through the cycles until you notice what your washer is not doing.

**Warning** Although washers are fairly easy to work on, there are moving parts and wires in there, so please be careful with your hands**

Rear Suspension noise on 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee V8

Check sway bar. On some models as suspension sags, sway bar outer ends will contact the body, leaving a mark or dent just above the end, causing a bang over bumps. Only way to correct this is to change springs or add a spring lift.
