Washer Will Not Hold Water

Washer pours water into the bowl, but does not fill. I can see water coming into the bowl up to a point at the bottom of the bowl and then water level never gets higher. If I stop the washer the existing water drains. Have also tried to move the cycle to spin in order to get clothes out somewhat dry and the spin cycle will not come on.

Re: Washer Will Not Hold Water

What height is mentioned in your manual for your drain pipe (the outlet pipe for your machine) There should be a height (before u bend it downwards into the drain) or the water will just flow out........... And do not over-load your washer.

How can you get a washer smelling good?

First of all this mainly happens when you use cold water washing, the plastic bowl(s) become slightly porous over time & the dirt from clothes adhere to the area between the inner & outer bowls.

To clean & remove smell.

1. Put washer on hot wash, high level & let it fill with HOT water.

2. Stop washer, put in an old towel.

3. Add a bucket of hot water (This allows the water level to be above the scum mark inside machine.

4. Add washing soda to the bowl (double the amount it says on the packet).

5. Start washer & allow to run to the end of the first wash cycle.

6. Stop washer & allow to sit for a few hours.

7. After the few hours, start washer & allow it to run the rest of the full cycle.

you can do the same procedure with Vinegar.

you may have to repeat procedure a few times.


The worst case scenario, you will have get a technician to remove the inner bowl & manually clean these areas.

I have a top load washer that is leaking water I pour water in an it comes out the bottom and I can't find where it's coming out

top right of photo is where the water flows through. so most likely in there. there is also a nipple on the side of the bowl that should have a pipe connected to it. check that. if you get under it, dry it, then put water in. the water is going to give itself away.

I have a fisher & paykel IW810 washing machine that will not fill the bowl with water. While filling, it is also pumping the water out, in the autowater level sensing mode. I have gone into the command...

hi, reading your posting it tells me that the machine will fill on traditional wash but on auto fill mode it pumps the water out at the same time it is filling. i"m pretty sure it is your diverter . on auto fill mode it fills a little bit then the pump comes on and recirculates your water by pumping the water from the bottom of the bowl to the top of the bowl over the clothes. on auto fill mode it also activates the diverter to pump the water back to the bowl. on your machine the diverter is stuck in the drain out position so when it trys to recirculate the water it drains out the water instead . the problem could be a faulty diverter, control module or a broken wire.hope this helps, please reply if you need more help. good luck.

Washer won't start. water pours down sewer pipe

Hi, If the water is going out the drain hose, raise the drain hose so that its highest point is as high as the top of the washer. This should take care of the issue. If the water is coming out of the bottom of the machine, tip it back against the wall and look under the washer to see if a hose has broke or came loose.
If I can assist you further, please let me know.

The drum seal is bad. The seal allows the center to come up through the tub and the tub to rotate around it, It usually has a rubber membrane that flexes so the tub can rock around. The rubber tears and the water runs right out. If you can, disassemble the washer and change the seal, otherwise the washer is toast. Sorry! You can verify this by pouring water in from a bucket. If this water doesn't run through then it is the hose from the fill valve to the water outlet under the lid.

Maytag washer pours water out bottom instead of filling up

Check the water pump for physical damage from the move. If the washer was laid on it's side, you may have either snapped off the pump outlet or broke the pump body. You may have broekn the body of the water inlet valve fill flume. A visual examination should provide a lot of insight as to what the problem is.

Miele Premier Novo Washing Machine: Water coming straight out of the machine

The lower left panel is a filter that should be cleaned out regularly - the filter is also connected to the drain pump which rids the washer of the water. When you clean the filter out - make sure you have a bowl or Tupperware handy that holds about 2 quarts - slowly remove the filter and the water will drain into the bowl. Clean out any debris and reassemble. If the filter is not seating properly in its seat - water will leak from the small hose - the filter is what blocks the water from coming out of the hose.
