Question about Kenmore 22422 Top Load Washer
When I start the washer it begins to fill but then goes right out the drain. The tub never fills with water. I checked to make sure the spin cycle worked and it does but I just can't hold water in the tub. Help is greatly appreciated.
The problem you are experiencing is called "siphoning". Check the drain hose going into the standpipe (drain pipe). If the hose is shoved down in the standpipe too far, or if you've sealed the top of the standpipe where the hose goes into, you have created a vacuum and are causing the water to continuously drain. The drain line needs an air gap to prevent this problem. Pull the drain hose back out enough to allow an air gap and make sure you don't have anything covering the top of the standpipe. Hope this helps.
