you might consider raising the washer about 6 inches to make this work. it's vital to the operation of the machine..

puzzled here because there is always some water left in machine this is normal .you are quite right when you say that when you take the drain hose out of stand pipe and lower it water comes out but that is because of gravity .

### What is the weight of the liquid paraffin in a cylindrical can of 5cm diameter and 150mm height

Come on, where's your school boy maths? Formula is Pi R Squared x Height. Therefore 3.142 x 2.5cm(radius) squared x 15cm = 294.56 cubic centimetres, call it 295.
Water weighs 1kilo at 1 litre so approx 295cc's will be 295 grams, if thats any help? If not substitute the true weight per mL or cc of paraffin because there are various grades of paraffin If you do it in old imperial, 1 english gallon of water is 10 lbs.

### How much volume in gallons does ten foot of three quarter inch copper pipe contain?

0.23 gallons. Figured out by assuming the pipe is .75 inches inside diameter. To get the volume, calculate the area of the cross-section with the formula Pi times the radius squared. Which is 0.375 squared times Pi = 0.441786. Multiply that times 12 inches per foot times 10 feet = 53 cubic inches. One gallon = 231 cubic inches.

### Water does not stop from drain pipe

Hello, welcome to FixYa.
I understand you have a Whirlpool washer, "water does not stop from drain pipe", correct ? You didn't specify if this is a top load or a front load, so I'll reply with a general rule of what may be happening based on your description...regardless of what type of washer it is.
To address this, and as long as water is indeed entering the unit here`s what I find is most common when dealing with the symptom you`ve described ( as long as water isn't filling over the top on top-load machines...that indicates a different issue ) I'd suspect the drain hose is lying down on the floor or is pushed down into the stand-pipe too far.
If the drain hose is below the water level entering the washer it will siphon out immediately. The drain hose must be above the highest point the washer has to fill, ( refer to your manual, but it is typically recommended to be about "48 to "60 in height but not more than 90" or so )
**The standpipe drain requires a minimum diameter standpipe of 2" (5 cm). The minimum carry-away capacity can be no less than 17 gal. (64 L) per minute. A 2" (5 cm) diameter to 1" (2.5 cm) diameter standpipe adapter kit is available. " The top of the standpipe must be at least 39" (99 cm) high and no higher than 96" (244 cm) from the bottom of the washer.**
Also if it is in a stand pipe insure it isn't pushed in too far, just a few inches and then secure it without completely covering over the opening or that too will cause it to siphon. Check your drain hose.
Let me know if this was indeed the case and if so please rate the solution accordingly. If not we can move forward from there. Thank's for coming to FixYa and good luck.
Regards,

### I am trying to find the capacity of a Dayton Glass Lined Electric Water Heater. The model number is partially missing but it starts with 3E1200 Does anyone one have any idea of where I could find this...

To figure close but not accurate use this formula Pie(3.14) X  R (22/2=11)and multiply this by its self before multiplying by pie) sq2  so it looks like this (3.14 * (11X11))*  then multiply by length or height,  length 48)  this gives you cubic inch size roughly, then devide by 231 ( the number of cubic inches in a gallon). This will be close I think its close to 30 gallon.
Hope this helps if so  please rate me accordingly. Good Luck

### Drain problem

If there's water in the drain line this is normal. There is roughly about a half a gallon of residual water that remains under the wash basket, drain line and drain pump combined. That's why it is important to leave the washer door open when not in use to allow the tub to air out. It will not evaporate the water, but will help reduce the build up of mold, mildew, and odors.

Now, if you look inside the wash tub and see standing water, then you may have some drain line issues. Make sure your drain line does not exceed 10 feet in length. Excessive lengths can cause backwash. Also, make sure the standpipe at the wall is at least two inches in diameter, a minimum of 34 inches from the floor and does not exceed a height of 72 inches. All these conditions can cause slow drain problems and/or backwash.

I hope this answers your question and that you find this helpful. Please post back if you need further assistance.

PS Make sure the standpipe is draining properly. It should be capable of draining approximately 17 gallons per minute.
