washing machine fills and drain at the time.


Hi Kot Twa.
Usually this problem is caused by the drain hose being too low and the water is siphoning out whilst it's filling.
If the machine is filling and the pump us emptying the machine it will mean a visit by a Technician.
Good luck

I have LG fyzzy logic 6.5 kg WFS65AO1DCT and it keeps loading and draining water even when in spin


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
This happens on new installations usually. The drain hose must be higher than the highest fill height of the washer. If the drain hose is to low it will create a siphon effect and drain the machine. Next is the drain hose is to tight in the standpipe. The standpipe is your homes plumbing. If the drain hose does not have an air gap aroung it, it can cause a siphon effect and start draining your machine as it fills. If none of these are the problem and your drain pump is running at the same time it is filling you will need to replace the control. For top load machines follow this video and for front load machines follow the tutorial.

water runs into tub but does not fill?


be sure the drain hose is not lower than the wash tub this will caust the water to run out, 2nd be sure the drain hose is not pushed to far into the house stand pipe and the there is rome for air to go inbetween the drain hose and stand pipe eather of these will cause the machine to siphon mostly on rince cycle or on the 2nd and third loads you do. last your house drain could be starting to back up fill the washer with water and listen to it drain if you hear a gurggling sound in the house pipe you may need a plumber to cleanthis out for you.

wont fill up with water it drains out before its full


If you hear the motor running when it is draining then you have a bad timer. If it just drains out and the motor is not running then you have a siphon problem which is caused if the drain hose is too low. Let me know what you find.

my washing machine is stuck on filling up with water it wont wash


If it keeps filling and overflows you need to check the water level switch and hose. If it keeps filling but doesn't leak out the you drain hose is too low or too far down the drain.
