    My washer starts filling...and before it finishes filling the water appears to be draining out and the water just continues to run...sometimes, it doesn't hold water at all and just drains out as it is filling!!!! Sometimes the water will run for hours ... then I will spin it out and it may run fine the next load.

    The Syphon diagnosis sounds right. Did it fix the problem? I have the same problem.

Candy, check the drain hose, make sure it has a air gap and that it is not down too far in the drain. Sounds like a siphoning problem....Catriver post back.

I have an Amana front load washer, it will run through a complete cycle when empty but will not run with a load in it.


Hi Ben
I see you have posted on this before , I think you may have done this already judging from your post , but have you checked the filter on the drain pump? also when you run a cycle empty, is it filling and draining the water correctly , or is there water left in the machine , and last is the drain hose high enough to make sure that there is not a "syphoning" effect taking place as in when it fills with water it drains at the same time , just a thought let me know.

Washer works fine until it starts filling on the rinse cycle, then the water just flows out of the drain. Last night the water was running for 3 hours, before I realized it. The tub fills fine when it is...


Make sure the drain hose is not sealed to the drain pipe, and that the hose is not shoved into the drain allowing the end of the hose to reach the trap. That will prevent the machine from syphoning out the rinse water as it fills.

Washer will not spin


I fixed it yesterday. After checking the continuity of my lid switch and pressure switch and finding them ok I removed the tubing from the pressure switch and applied air (blew into it). There was a clog and blowing on it removed it for now. Apparently the pressure switch was telling the machine that the tub was full of water and wouldn't let it start the spin cycle. I ran three loads last night and it worked perfect. I may have to remove the connection on the side of the tub and clean it properly if it clogs again.

Water fill, discharge and noise problems


to reset the water level you have to turn the knob all the way over as far as it will go and then come back to large load.
