Based on the information you have provided it is possible the timer on the unit may need repairing. It is recommended that a Service Specialist diagnose and determine if it is in fact this part that needs repairing.

Fills Constantly


check the drain hose. Is it in the drain below the fill line of the washer?
In other words -- the drain line should be above the level of the washer lid top and in the line about 4-6 inches

Does not fill to wash


If draining is occurring at the same time as it is filling you have siphoning happening. There could be 2 reasons for this.

#1 the drain hose must be higher than the washer tub before it connects to the drain pipe in the house.

#2 the drain hose from the machine must not stick into the house drain more than 6" - if it is pushed down the drain too far it will siphon out the water in the machine.

Hello, On Neptune washer serial # 34098916EF, Washer tub fills with about 2 inches of water within hours after doing a wash. When I spin the tub by hand, I hear water sloshing inside. Machine drains fine....


You have a bad water fill valve. Until you get it fixed shut water valves off at the wall so that you don't have a flood if the fill valve on the machine fails completely. Let me know if there is anything else I can Help you with.

My Inglis washer fills and drain at the same time. It can fills for hours without stopping. Do I need a service call or can I do something to fix it?


make sure your drain hose is up off the floor. it needs to be the same hight as the machine itself. also make sure you have an air gap around the spout of the drain hose.

How long should it take for a normal wash and heated dry on a whirlpool dish washer. Is 3 hours normal?


TOO LONG- 1.5 / 2 HOURS IS NORMAL

CHECK YOUR FILL TIMES SHOULD BE NO MORE THAN 5 MINUTES PER FILL

PUT THE DRAIN HOSE INTO THE SINK OR A BUCKET TO MAKE SURE IT IS CLEAR

FAULTY HEATER WILL ALSO MAKE THE CYCLE TOO LONG

Thin-line will not stop filling with water


is it filling and draining at the same time ? if so take the drain house out of the stand pipe (wall) make sure it is oinly in 5-6 inches if it is in too far it will create a syphone where it will fill and drain at the same time and never advace the cycle. you should always hear water going down the drain if you can't it is down too far. let me know how it goes

Washer keeps filling w/ water, only stops when changed to spin


Your drain line is too low.
OR the drain line is restricting air where it enters the drain stand pipe.
Remove the drain line and hold it up high.
Turn the washer on to fill. It should fill then stop.
This example should explain what you must do to correct the drain line problem.

Washer is not filling during rinse cycle.


Sounds like the water is being siphoned out by the drain hose. Check to see if the drain hose rises above the top of the tub.

Does the washer fill normally and just stop? Or, does the washer fill, go through a complete cycle, and just won't drain? There could be a couple of problems that cause a no drain issue. 1. FILL NORMALLY & STOPS, WILL NOT SPIN - This is usually a bad lid switch. If you open and close the lid, you should hear a "click", indicating the switch is working. 2. FILL NORMALLY, AGITATES, WILL NOT DRAIN - This could be a clogged drain pump, pinched hose, clogged rain line. Also, you need to make sure timer is advancing properly. If the timer never advances, the washer will fill, but won't go into agitate or spin. Let me know if this is helpful.

My washer will not fill, it just drains stright out so the watter will ran for three hours. I just did a load the night befor and everything was fine. I did not move or disturb the washer in any way...


Candy, check the drain hose, make sure it has a air gap and that it is not down too far in the drain. Sounds like a siphoning problem....Catriver post back.
