Re: constant drain won't fill

Look at how the drain hose is run. The highest part of the hose needs to be comfortably higher than the maximum water level in the machine. The manual will tell you what minimum height you need, but if you can't find that, use 36" as a starting point. A.

How do I get the bleach dispenser to drain?

Hello Denise C - There are several things that could cause the bleach to not dispense into the washer. Are you sure the liquid in the dispenser after the wash is bleach? If it is pure bleach, the solenoid that lets the water into the dispenser is not working. This solenoid is located on the back of the dispenser. It only gets voltage during the dispense time and fills the bleach dispenser with water. The bleach dispenser fills while the washer is filling for the rinse cycle.

When the washer begins to fill for the rinse cycle, the bleach solenoid is energized and water flows into the bleach dispenser cup. When the cup is full the water siphons out and bleach and water flow into the tub.

If the liquid in the bleach dispenser is pure bleach you may need a technician to diagnose and repair the problem. The voltage will have to be tested to the bleach solenoid and a volt meter is required.

If the liquid in the bleach dispenser is water you probably need to clean the dispenser cup. Scum will build up in the siphon tube and stop the liquid from going into the washer tub. The incoming water will dilute the bleach and overflow the dispenser cup and run into the tub.

Remove the insert from the bleach and fabric softener compartments. Clean the bottom of the insert and the bleach and fabric softener compartments. Reinstall the insert and put the drawer back inside the washer.

To test the siphon action slowly pour water into the bleach compartment. When the water level goes above the maximum line stop pouring. The water should all drain out. You may also test the fabric softener compartment the same way.

I do hope this information proves to be helpful.

Maytag bravos washer- bleach compartment wont drain during wash cycle

The solenoid that turns on to dispense the bleach is bad, or you have a clogged tube that goes from bleach dispenser to tub.

After each load the "fill bleach cup" is filled with water. I have to take the whole tray out and flip it up-side-down to empty the water. I cannot find where the thing can be clogged. I can't use bleach...

Bleach & fabric conditioners "syphon away" into machine... try adding 1/2 lt water to the bleach compartment, if it then syphons away your syphon is not blocked. If it does not drain you will need to find the syphon cap - genarally just a tube, most manufacturers will make the tube a different colour to the rest of the draw.
If it did drain when water added you may have issues with bleach not being a part of that particular cycle, delicates for example...

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.

Please help me with my washer

Hello browneyez070

You said, your Hotpoint top loader washing machine won't spin water out. Model VBXR1O6OVOWW?

Common causes before considering repairs.

Water won’t drain
Drain hose is kinked or
Improperly connected on it.

• Top of drain outlet should be less than 8 ft. above floor.
• Straighten drain hose and make sure washer is not sitting

Let me know if these measures help.

Water leak

it sounds like the bleach fill line. at the top of the washer is a bleach fill cup, it might attach to it. this black bleach fill line attaches to the bleach fill cup to the bottom of the tub.

How to unplug dispenser tube

if you cant get something in the tub to clean it out you may want to check into just replacing it.  Are you sure there isn't a solenoid attached to allow the bleach to empty in at a certain time of the cycle and if that is bad and not opening up you would have the same condition

Washer fills and drains repeatedly

Have a look at the routing of your drain hose. It sounds a bit as if: a. The highest point of the hose isn't high enough (you normally want to aim for about 3 feet off the ground) - so that water starts draining from the machine before it is finished filling. and b. There isn't an effective air break or anti-siphon valve where the drain hose goes into the domestic drainage system - so that once the machine starts to drain by itself, it continues until empty. A.
