Re: washing machine

If your drain hose is laying flat on the floor it needs to be lifted higher than the top of your machine to allow the water to remain in the tub. If it is lifted then check the drain standpipe where the drain hose attaches to the plumbing and verify that it does not have an air tight seal if it does then make sure that there is a place for air to enter the drain right where the drain hose attaches to your house plumbing.

I still have wet close after spin cycle Why?

check the drain hose for any kinks in it,is it a top load or a front load washer and how old is it?the pump could be blocked with something or the tranny is bad.if it's a top load,set the timer on spin cycle,open the lid,start the spin and with a screw driver push down on the lid switch and see how the machine is spinning,if it's not spinning fast the tranny is bad.if the drain hose is stuck into a drain pipe pull it out and drain the water to see if the water is draining out good or partially draining,something could be in the pump or to much detergent,the washer can't pump out suds as fast as water then the suds turn back into water form again and the clothes are wet.

Is it possible to slow down or reduce the rate at which water drains out of the washing machine? My drain line is restricted and if the load is more than "Small", it drains too quickly and starts...

There is no flow adjustment on the drain on any washing machine, I had a similar problem on my old washing machine, I discovered the problem was the waste water pipe in my house was clogged with scum from detergent residue, I poured liquid plumber where the washing machine drain hose goes into the waste pipe in the house waited for 1/2 hour, then filled the washing machine with hot water, reinserted the drain hose, and wrapped it up with duct tape to prevent further leaks, and the force of hot water uncloged the pipe, .Problem solved

Water sipps back in to the drum after the wash has finished

You need an air gap/ siphon break. Gravity is a strong thing. Most washing machines2_bing.gif have the pump at the lowest portion of a washer. They provide a drain hose with each washer. If the drain hose is not properly mounted according to shipping instructions, gravity will cause the water to flow out the machine as fast as it comes in. You must have the hose at least 30 inches above the floor to prevent this. A common question I see a lot is: Water goes out as fast as it goes in? Or it fills and starts to wash and then shuts down and fills a little more and then starts up and shuts down. This is the water draining out the machine as it begins the tumble action. The hose is not on the floor but it is still not high enough to stop the siphoning. Other causes of siphoning is cramming a drain hose down tightly into the drain. Some drains are so strong they will actually pull the water out the machine. To prevent this sometimes a tech will install an anti-siphoning device. Consult your owners manual.

Washer fills up than starts draining while in wash cycle

Hello , here is the fix-your drain hose is placed to low in the drain line in the wall, it can not be placed in water or it will siphon the water out of your washer into the drain pipe and it wont stop until it hits air. try pulling your drain hose up and out of the drain and get a zip tie or cable and tie it to one of the water valves by the drain pipe placing the end of the drain hose about 5-6 inches inside the drain pipe. Let me know if you have any other questions and good luck it will work.

Rinse water fills the washing machine when the spin cycle starts

Check your outlet filter, most likely it is blocked, preventing the water from draining out. Chk your pump too. Before this disconnect from the wall socket; and also check the pipe coming from the tub to the filter. Siphon out the excess water from inside the machine before you open the pipes.
