SOURCE: Rinse cycle, water won't work

It sounds like you either use warm or hot water for the wash cycle. If this is the case, you probably have a cold water solenoid problem on your water inlet valve (also known as a mixing valve on some washers). Most people use warm or hot water on the wash cycle. The water inlet valve has two solenoids. One for hot and one for cold. It uses a combination of the hot and cold solenoids to make warm water. The rinse cycle on most washers is a cold water rinse only, however. This would explain why the water appears to flow normally when it fills during the wash, and only trickles when it rinses. If you live in an area that has hard water, or if you use well water, these valves commonly clog with sediment. You can shut off the water, remove the hoses, and attempt to clean the sediment screens to see if the water flow improves. If it doesn't, you will need to replace the valve. The following link epxlains how:

I know the link says this is for a Kenmore or Whirlpool, but also applies to a Roper. A replacement valve can be ordered on line at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in the model number and the part you need is located under the "Controls and Rear Panel" heading as item number 18 (part #285805). This is a very simple and inexpensive fix if you wish to perform the repairs youself. Not to mention, you can potentially will save hundreds by avoiding the labor charges of a service call. I hope this helps you. If you require additional assistance, please let me know. Hopefully, a good cleaning will do and you won't require parts.

Sounds like you have an electrical loose connection. I would target the fuel pump relay. It is probably shutting off and coincidentally, reconnects when you stop and start again. Could also be the ECM, Mitsubishi has problems with these I have seen. Google your car make, year, and symptom. Read the blogs.

When i try to start the engine a light on the dash comes on and says check engine i've checked what i can but i cant seem to find the problem and when i turn the key theres nothing at all happening...


It sounds like your starter has stopped working. I could be a bad fuse able link but this is usually a problem on older vehicles. The service engine soon light should always come on when you start the car. If you turn the key to start and you hear absolutely nothing then odds are its the starter. If you take it out yourself, you can have it tested at a local parts store before you drop the cash to buy another. I hope this helps!

Have a 2006 Heritage Softail - Was running when speedometer & odometer quit working and key light came on - not engine light. Stopped at gas station - when down shifted to stop things started working...


Hi Johnrobindan, and the usual suspects are:
1.Ignition/Light Key Switch not in IGNITION position.
2.Engine Stop switch in the OFF position.
3.Discharged battery, loose or corroded connections check negative cable at both ends. (solenoid chatters).
4. Bank Angle Sensor tripped and Ignition/Light Key Switch not cycled to Off and then back to
5. Starter control circuit, relay or solenoid faulty.
6. Electric starter shaft pinion gear not engaging or over-running clutch slipping.
For a prime suspect please visit website below and good Luck.
