Question about Kenmore 23822 Top Load Washer
Is the washer leaking? If so, where is the leak coming from? If this is a matter of the washer trying to fill, but never quite gets there, or the water level steadily drops during the wash cycle, you may have a condition known as "siphoning". The following link explains this:
Hopefully, this is just a simple drain hose installation issue. I would start by lifting the drain hose in the stand pipe. If you hear a sucking sound as you lift the hose, you had a vacuum on the line because there wasn't a sufficient air gap to allow proper drainage. Make sure you follow the instructions in the link I provided and leave the proper air gap. Also, do not seal the top of the pipe and your problems should go away. If I'm incorrect in my assessment, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.
