Does not fill to wash


If draining is occurring at the same time as it is filling you have siphoning happening. There could be 2 reasons for this.

#1 the drain hose must be higher than the washer tub before it connects to the drain pipe in the house.

#2 the drain hose from the machine must not stick into the house drain more than 6" - if it is pushed down the drain too far it will siphon out the water in the machine.

Kenmore 90 Series Heavy Duty Top Load Washer Model 110.28922790 water fills in tub and it's draining at the same time. Won't go through the normal cycle just keeps filling and draining. Any help...


You may have a condition known as "siphoning". This is caused by the drain hose not being high enough off the floor, or not having a proper air gap at the standpipe in order to drain properly. This creates a suction and the washer will constantly drain as it tries to fill. The following link explains:

In the majority of the cases, this problem is attributed to improper installation, rather than an actual problem with the washer. If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

Washer fills and drains at the same time. doesn't change cycles


check the washer drain hose, it is probably sipening the water back out, try pulling it out of the drain a few inches

Water fill control


it overflows from the tub then:
This can either be a fault in the fill sense tube( small tube connected to the bottom on the outer tub from the sensor at or near the top of the washer housing ) becoming blocked or broken or a fault with the sensor itself. There is a mechanical adjustment for the level but it is a little fiddly to get the adjustment just right.

If it overfills from the drain hose:
then either the drain hose is too low and the water siphons out before it reaches the maximum or there is a tight seal at the drain hose to house drain port which will cause all the water to siphon out, this can also be caused by a drain hose being pushed too far down the house drain port.

My washer will not fill during the cycle for high agitation


You may have a siphoning problem. Double check your drain hose and make sure it's not shoved down in the standpipe too far. The standpipe is the drain line at the wall. If your drain hose is placed too deep into the standpipe, or if you have the top of the standpipe sealed off, the washer will begin to fill and continue to drain at the same time. The symptom will appear as if the washer is constantly filling. You need to leave an air gap opening around the rim of the standpipe, and the drain hose should only be placed about 4 to 6 inches into the drain line. I hope this helps you. Post back if this is not the problem you are experiencing and I will try to provide you with a better solution. Let me know if you have any questions.

Washer will not fill


Triple, sounds like you are siphoning. Pull the drain hose out from the drain hole. Make sure you have a air gap where the drain hose goes in. Try this first. Catriver..post back
