The Whirlpool Corporation, which owns Roper Appliances, manufactures all Roper washers and dryers. The Roper Appliances line was made to be affordable and durable for everyday family use.
Roper washers and dryers have a couple key features for reliable and effective use. Roper washers don't have any drives or pulleys in the motor transmission which makes for worry-free operation. They also have extra-large capacity drums that allow the user to wash more clothes in a single load. Roper dryers also come with high-capacity drum sizes. As of 2015, Roper washers cost $329 to $379, and dryers run between $349 and $429.
