    Aborcass,

    Tina here we talked on Sat. I need more help from you. I changes my hose from up in the pvc pipe to the drain directley into the wall straight across from hose fitting on machine. But the I had the problem of the water just being drained out and never filling the machine at all. (siphone effect) So it wouldnt wash but It would high speed and completely drain the clothes(What I need know). So I cut the hose and put it back into the pvc pipe but now the water comes back in after finalspin and the final spin is slow its not like it was when the hose was hooked up on the bottom drain(but again the bottom drain hookup would not wash my clothes. Hope you can help. On unemployment and need to do the cheeap route. Thanks again Tina

Maytag centennial washer - not draining on some settings


Check outlet hose for kinks or restrictions. Make sure the outlet hose is free to expel water at full volume. Make sure the outlet hose is not mounted to high. Check pump impellor has all it's vanes intact. Check for coins in all hoses & pump.

Several possible causes of a top load washer not fully draining.
a.) Kinked or obstructed drain hose

How high can I pump up to a drain.


I have the same question....since I own a cabin with no basement floor drains. I have to pump my washer discharge to a main level drain.

To check the elevation needed, hook a garden hose to the discharge line and, after running the discharge end outside, raise or elevate the line using a line and tree branch to determine the height at which pump discharge quits. 33 feet equals appoximately 1 atmos or 14.7 psig.

How far will a washer pump up water?


Yes, it should pump it that far, but you may shorten the life of the motor by doing so.

Thats only adding about 4 foot since it already pumps it about 3 ft to the standard drain hight.

How high can the outlet hose from a Kenmore Series 90 washing maching pump. Location is in basement with not drain but could get to basement window and then to drain. Window approx. 3 feet from top of...


The pump should be able to move waste water 3 feet above the washing machine but if that fails, then you could always buy a sewage ejector set up ( plastic barrell with internal pump and water level sensor) . Those have a highjer pupm head pressure and would be able to move water up a column further than a washing machine pump. IN all probability, you will be ok at 7 - 9 feet from floor.
Hope that helps..

Cannot get to drain washer if the hose needs to go up into ceiling to get to septic pipes


usually the outlet and the pump is capable of pumping out at the maximum high of 3-4 feet from the drain. if any higher than that, you need to add a pump in line.

Installing a Washer in basement


The top of the drain pipe that the washing machine drains in to should be about 3 feet off the ground. If the sewer pipe is higher than that you can either get a longer hose, or drain it into a sump with a sump pump that pumps it into the sewer pipe. If you don't have a sump, first try the longer hose and make sure it drains to a point higher than the sewer pipe (that would be the easiest) or cut a hole in your floor and put in a sump and sump pump (the most difficult).

Doesn't fill


Is your outlet pipe at the required height behind the machine? Your outlet pipe should be approx 3 feet high behind your machine, or the water would just flow out. The pump in your machine pumps the water OVER this height. Check this out.
