My washer sometimes will not fill durring the rinse cycle. It does not happen every time but it does happen more times than not. The water appears to just run straight through the machine. I don't have a problem with any other cycle.

Re: Washer sometimes drains durring the rince cycle

Ave, sounds like you have a siphoning problem. Check your drain hose and make sure there is a gap to break the siphon. Sometimes I find the drain hose shoved too far down the drain causing this problem. Another thing you might want to check is the drain itself. Is the drain water backing up causing the drain hose to be submerged after the initial drain? back.

When my washer is at the rinse cycle, it sometimes keeps filling because the water is also goin down the drain. It drains while it should be filling.

Two things to look for... make sure your drain hose is 36inchs off the floor. Next if your drain is directly connected to the house drainpipe you can get a siphon. You can look for a after market siphon break device to add to the hose to help stop this from occurring.

Washer just shuts down

If the washer is turning off mid cycle then the problem most likely has something to do with the draining or the filling.

First check the drain hose is not to far down the standpipe. If it is to far down then the water might siphon out during fill. The water would fill and drain at the same time. One cycle I would like you to try is the "Rinse Only" cycle. This is a simple, short cycle that should just fill once, drain and spin. If the washer will do this then the major components are most likely okay.

Make sure the water drains out and let me know if the drain pump is the source of the noise you hear.

I have a GE toploader washer. The model # is WBSR1060T (VVSRV1040V, & YVSR1040V were also on the washer too) the washer keeps filling to the max setting no mater what the water level is set on, also...

Remove the front panel of the washer by using a putty knife to release the retaining clips, located in the seam between the front panel and the washer's top, about 2 inches in from each side. With an empty wash tub, remove the small hose on the left side of the outer tub and clean out the inside of the hose. Replace the hose. Test.

The cold water keeps running in the rinse cycle. it nrver fills up it drains out as it flows in

you kind of lost me with that one, but the washer should spray in cold water when in the rince cycle , spining , draining, and spray of cold water. Thats a normal rince.

Water draining as it is filling the drum

The drain hose is not high enough and it is siphoning the water out. Get the highest point of the drain hose above the water level in the washer.

Water runs into tub but does not fill?

be sure the drain hose is not lower than the wash tub this will caust the water to run out, 2nd be sure the drain hose is not pushed to far into the house stand pipe and the there is rome for air to go inbetween the drain hose and stand pipe eather of these will cause the machine to siphon mostly on rince cycle or on the 2nd and third loads you do. last your house drain could be starting to back up fill the washer with water and listen to it drain if you hear a gurggling sound in the house pipe you may need a plumber to cleanthis out for you.

Front loading washer does not advance past the rince cycle

Check and clean filter, it is usually located behind a plastic panel at the bottom front of the washer, remove cover and unscrew the filter cover anti clockwise, pull out and clean, replace and test, if it still does not drain, then possibly pump blocked or faulty.
Plz rate my solution.

Whirlpool Washer will not progress to the rince cycle.

that is either a problem with the timer , or with the cold water hose at the back of the machine, see the following:

I quote from : The cycle doesn't advance

The cycle doesn't advanceWhen the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:

  • It'sthe timer, if your washing machine fills with water and beginsagitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spincycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer.

  • Itmay be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills withwater, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinsewater. See There's no cold water.

    Kenmore stack washer and dryer

    gabehart....sounds like belt is slipping. Replace it. The water pump is on a separate smaller motor so is not affected by the agitator/spin motor.

    Bosch classixx 1000 washing machine - stops on spin

    Washing machine stops at the spin cycle - light flashes. Have to drain water out manually. Happened last week and was then able to run an empty rinse cycle. Machine worked normally for another week. Same problem today but have had to drain water manually from the drum after trying an empty 90 wash and rinse cycle (both stopped on the Spin and flashed). Any ideas? Thanks. x
