My used Kenmore washer fills with water then the water level drops downto about the half way level in drum. I just bought it used and installed it yesterday. Could the water be siphoning out into drain...


It sounds as if it is siphoning out the drain pipe.You have to get the drain pipe up to the top of the washer and also be sure that the pipe is a little bigger than the drain hose or it will siphon. Hope this helps.

Kenmore 70 series i installed my washer yesterday but im having a problem the water will stay in the tub of the washer it just rushes out the drain in the back washer what can i do to keep the water in...


Hello, Welcome to FixYa. The drain hose coming out the back of your washer must be placed in a stand pipe or wash-tub to the highest water level of your washer, otherwise it will simply drain/siphon out as quick as it fills. I suspect you likely have the hose lying on the floor or shoved into the stand pipe too far or too low in some manner. Let me know how you make out or if you require more help. Good luck and thank you for choosing FixYa. Please take second to rate the info I provided here today. Regards, Macmarkus :)

Our washer fills and drains at the same time.


Hi, Based on the limited info I'd suspect the drain hose is lying down on the floor or is pushed down into the stand-pipe too far. If the drain hose is below the water level entering the washer it will siphon out immediately. The drain hose must be above the highest point the washer has to fill, and if it is in a stand pipe insure it isn't pushed in too far, just a few inches and then secure it without completely covering over the opening or that too will cause it to siphon. Do you hear any motor operating while this is happening ? If you answered NO, this further support's the idea of the washer siphoning out the water it is supposed to fill with. Check your drain hose. Let me know if this was indeed the case and if so please rate the solution accordingly. Thank's for coming to "fixya" and good luck. Macmarkus :)

Our kenmore stackable washing machine on the rinse and wash cycle is not filling up with water. the water keeps running out


Make sure the drain hose is not pushed too far down the drain pipe. It could cause a siphon effect and drain the tub.

Make sure the drain hose is not tight in the drain pipe. It should fit loose so as not to trap the air which can also cause a siphon effect.

My maytag performa washer continues to drain while filling, therefore never starting the rinse cycle. The drain pipe is in a loop position so I know it is not siphoning the water out and the washer seems...


how far does the drain pipe go into exit drain because this shoulh not pushed into pipe more than 6" and should have a air break and also the drain pipe should be above top of bowl line

Washer will only fill halfway


hello, 1 possable problem a pretty common problem and the solution is blindingly simple. It’s caused by the drain hose siphoning water out of the washer tub. There are two common causes for siphoning and I’ll explain both of them below.


drain-min.jpgOne cause for siphoning is simply that the drain hose discharge is below the fill level of the washer tub. This picture shows the minimum drain height needed to avoid siphoning.
Another common cause for siphoning is not having an air break between the drain hose and the drain stand pipe. Usually, this isn’t a problem since the drain hose diameter is usually much smaller than the diameter of the drain stand pipe. But sometimes folks will inadvertently remove the air break by duct taping the drain hose to the stand pipe. They might do this because the drain hose keeps popping out of the stand pipe when the washer pumps out the tub. Other times, the drain hose might fit into the stand pipe with a tight interference fit.also check your water inlet valve filter/screen make sure its not clogged.

I have a kenmore 80 series washer and it won't fill up some times


It sounds like a siphon issue so nothing should be broken.
Check that the drain hose does a high loop before it goes into the drain pipe. (ie. drain hose loops above the water level inside the tub). Make sure the drain hose is not pushed too far down into the drain pipe. Also if the drain hose is sealed to the drain pipe this will create an airlock and a siphon will occur, allow air to enter between drain hose and drain pipe connection.
This should help you but if there is still a problem let me know and I'll try to assist you further.
Good luck!

You have a siphon condition. The water is siphoning out as it fills.
Make sure you only have about 6 inches of the drain hose stuck into the house drain and make sure there is an air gap where the hose goes into the pipe so air can get into pipe. If you have the drain sealed to keep water from backing out of it, you will need to get the pipes cleaned for the washer to work properly.
The pressure of the water going through the pump during siphon is not enough to turn it on the machine.
Post back if you need more help.
