Question about Washing Machines

Rinse pipe overflow

The water backs up in the pipe where the water is supposed to go during the withdrawal cycle and goes all over the floor. I have used a snake to remove any objects but there were none. Could the problem be the elbow joint that connects one pipe to another?

Depending on how your drain system is plumbed where you live.. many homes use a 'trap' .. meaning a place where water remains to keep sewer gas from getting back into your home.. If your house is set up with this ( and it may be on the wall or in the floor).. you may have a blockage there that won't allow water to drain fast enough and the pipe fills up and leaks onto your floor.. Hope this helps you...

What causes water to overflow in drain pipe when rinsing?


Probably 1 of 2 things. First you may have a partial clog of the drain, can be a pain to unclog, snaking the drain usually helps. The other could be the line you have running into the drain could be pushed down too far where its lodge funny in the drain pipe, I would pull it up and out of the drain pipe a little to give it a little more room.

With this said, I'm betting you have a partial clog in the drain.

During the rinse and spin cycle, water is sprayed everwhere


There may be too much water and not enough clothes in the washer. If that is the case the water rises up the side of the tub when spinning and overflows the inner tub. Usually it goes into the outer tub but it can spurt out through bleach dispenser and run down the inside of the cabinet or hit the lid and splash out. Set water level (Xsmall, small, medium, large, Xlarge) appropriate for amount of clothes.

Your air vent in your drain line is stopped up in your plumbing. Your washer is fine.

Kenmore washer overflows during rinse cycle.


SOME OF THESE MACHINES HAVE TWO PRESSURE SWITCHES IN THEM, ONE FOR THE MAIN WASH WATER LEVEL AND ONE FOR THE RINSE WATER LEVEL. CHECK FOR A PLUGGED AIR PRESSURE HOSE FIRST AND THEN CHECK THE PRESSURE SWITCHES.

Washer continuously fills but drains at the same time during rinse cycle.


you have the drain pipe too low into tthe house drain pipe, raise the washers drain pipe up , you only need four inches down into the hous drain

also the house drain pipe needs to be as high as the lid of the machine before you put the washer drain tube into the house drain

you have a syphoning effect

Water Backs Up in Drain Pipe and Overflows


the pump will pump out at a continuos rate that wont change, the problem will be with the standpipe. You dont have to have a total blockage in the pipe, sometimes the diameter of the standpipe reduces due to scale build up and it just cant cope with the rate of flow.There will be a restriction somewhere.

Rinse water fills the washing machine when the spin cycle starts


Check your outlet filter, most likely it is blocked, preventing the water from draining out. Chk your pump too. Before this disconnect from the wall socket; and also check the pipe coming from the tub to the filter. Siphon out the excess water from inside the machine before you open the pipes.
