Water problem My machine is not holding the water. It is draining as fast as it is filling. It has worked fine for over 3 years so I am wondering if it is a valve and how do I get to it in order to fix it?

Re: water problem

I agree with him the drain hose needs to be as high at the top of the washer preferally with the hose making a u shape like a plumbers loop also make sure that the drain hose has plenty of room inthe drain pipe that its not shoved it there real tight believe it or not it will work for a long time but all ofa sudden it will stop

Whirlpool washer - tub drains while it fills.

Your drain is to low. Make sure that the drain that your discharge hose is going into is at least as high as the washer. If not the water will drain out as fast as you can fill it.

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

Can't hold water

There is no drain valve.
Pull the drain hose up out of the drain pipe until there is only about 6" inside the pipe. Make sure there is a gap around the hose where it goes into the pipe so air can get in.
Make sure the drain pipe is higher than the water level in the tub.

Wash Machine Drainage problem

i am a recently retired appliance engineer of 20 years, slowing down the flow of water from any electrical washing appliances can be dangerous and will cause extensive damage to the appliance in question, at the very least it will stop half way through the cycle every time the only way to remedy this is to rectify the drain, or at least sort out another waste water outlet sorry
