Washer fills then drains

My washer fills with water, but then automatically drains without going through a cycle. Then the washer will continue to put water into the machine, but it doesn't fill, it just drains.

Daisy, check your drain hose going into the drain. It sounds like you have a siphoning problem. If the drain hose does not have a air gap the water filling will siphon right out. Check this first and post back, Catriver.

Model FDB750RCC1 goes through pre rinse cycles with no issues. Once the soap drops it puts water in an does not spray. Then drains. Fills again, just heats w no spray, drains. Etc someone said it may

There should be an automatic float valve that allows a certain amount of water to fill the machine automatically. There may also be a dial adjustment that allows you to say whether it is a full load or variations less than full. Check to see if both of your water feeds (hot and cold) are suppling enough water. If it is a top loader you can peek inside the machine at various times to see what is going on (there is a safety switch that will turn off the drum activities when you do and resume when you close it). If it continues to drain and fill on the wash cycle without actually having the agitator do any washing, you have a control switch problem! THat main control switch is not advancing as it should. Change it out!

Sometimes when I turn the washer on; it continues to run the water without filling the bowl. Seems like the washer thinks its in rinse mode.

Check your drain the drain hose must be higher that the tub or it will run down the drain.
It must be going down the drain or you would have water all over the floor If the water is coming in it has to go somwhere. In rinse cycle it should stay in the tub until the timer kicks it into drain and spin.

Kenmore will not agitate

The timer is the most common problem. Call any appliance parts store and tell them the model number and ask for price for new timer. Also call sears appliance parts and get price. But a new timer and install it.

Whirlpool Washer - Imperial Series Quiet Wash 2

your washers drain hose is too far down the drain pipe which is causing a siphoning action pull the washers drain hose out pipe some you should be able to hear water dropping into the pipe the reason it only happens in the rinse cycle is because the water from wash is being drained and before the water vacuum is broken the rinse water comes in causing it to keep draining

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
