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.

Washer will load and drain at the same time, hence it never reaches or fill up.

I need to calculate the number of 55 gallon drums that can be placed in a containment pool that measures 8 ft in diameter, and 2 ft. in height. The containment vessel has to hold 110% of the material in...


Calculate the volume of one 55 gallon drum by using this formula
22/7 X Radius squared X hight of cylinder = Volume of large vessel.
22/7 X 48" (Squared) X 24" = Volume in cu in

100.57 cu ft in large pool = 752.315 US gals.
110% of 50 gals = 60.50 gals
752.315 divided by 60.5 = 12.43 drums
Draw to scale the large poola nd then draw to scale the smaller drums and see if 13 drums fit.

Check if any of these is the problem..
1)Drain hose is kinked or house drain is restricted.
Straighten the drain hose to improve water flow to the drain.
2)
Standpipe is too high.
Standpipe must not exceed 96 inches in height.
3)
Drain hose has been taped (or sealed) into the standpipe.
Tape holding the hose in the standpipe should not form a complete seal. The standpipe needs air for proper draining. Remove some of the tape to make an air path.
4)
Drain hose fits too tightly in the standpipe.
There must be an air gap between the drain hose and the standpipe for proper draining. The standpipe needs to be at least 1 1/4 inches in diameter.
