It sounds like you need a 2 way valve , its a valve thats suppose to recycle the water during the wash and then open so that the water can drain. it's at the bottom of the washer right by the drain hose.

My Whirlpool Duet ht Washer starts washing fine, it drains then it starts flashing FH and wont take in water for the rinse cycle. It does this for every cycle, it will wash fine but after it drains and is...


The first thing I would check is shut off the cold water valve at the wall and remove the hose at the washer.carefully pry out the little screen in the inlet and clean well,reconnect hose and turn water back on FH is a water inlet issue I am hoping that what is happening is that when the washer starts its wash cycle it is probably filling with warm (hot) and cold water at the same time even though it might be mostly hot,but when it comes time to rinse (cold water ) there is not enough to make the computer happy and you get your FH error.. Hope this Helps,,If not your probley looking at a new fill valve assy

Washer stuck on wash n wont spin not filling up with water


If water is coming into your machine but not filling up then you have a siponing problem (draining and filling at the same time). Raise the drain hose up higher at the drain at the back of your machine.

Washing machine keeps filling and draining at the same time and wont fill enough to move on to the next cycle


Hi,
The drain hose is too low and the water just runs right out...The highest point of the drain hose needs to be higher then the top of the washer before it goes back down into the drain. Also if the hose is sticking into water it can create a siphon which pulls the water out of the washer... make sure that you also have an air gap...

I have a GE washer that won't drain!


The pump is clogged. Remove the tub to pump hose and you will find debris in it not letting the pump work. Do this and you will be good to go. Thanks, Rick

It wont drain the water away after a wash we


sounds like your pump may be gone, or could be pipe blocked. to check pipe fill machine take outlet pipe at rear of machine and lay this into a bowl. If water flows ok then all pipes are clear. As water is coming through just put machine onto spin cycle and raise hose to see if water will then pump out.

Washing machine wont hold water on any setting


raise the main drain hose to the top of the back control head. there may be a problem with the main hose being to low and the water is gravity siphoning out of the washer.make sure the washer is off when you lift the hose up but do not remove it from the wall,you should here water drain out once it has stopped draining restart you machine and it should fill to the proper level and quit then go into your wash cycle

LSR8233JQ0Washer won't fill


The water is syphoning out the drain hose.
Many times when the stand pipe is backing up someone will seal the washer drain hose to the pipe to avoid overflow of the stand pipe.
This causes the water to syphon from the washer.

Or the opening for the stand pipe is just big enough to put the drain hose in and is to tight causing the syphon.

Putting the drain hose to far down the pipe can cause a syphon also.

Water wont fill washer. The water currently in


The pump is probably clogged with a coin. Pull off the hoses and check the pump. Make sure you put a pan under the hoses to catch the water
