Drain stand pipe Washer fills and drains at same time. Manual says the drain stand pipe must be greater than 30 degrees. I would like to have a description of the drain stand pipe and it's...


30 degrees or 30 inches. The drain stand pipe is separate from the washer and usual plumbed in behind the washer. You bring the the drain hose up to the top of the standpipe and then push the end (forming an upside down U at this point) into the top of the open 2-3" diameter PVC pipe and secure it so that it won't back out (but do not seal the opening). Nylon ties or hose clamps will work. The height requirement is so that the bottom of the hose in the standpipe is above the water level in the washer - this avoids the drain siphoning the water out of the washer. Check how far into the standpipe the drain hose has been pushed. If it is below the level of the water in the washer, back it out. Check the height of the standpipe. Many washer manuals recommend a 34" standpipe (max height of 48") based on the drain hose length on the down side of the U. Also make sure no one sealed the top of the standpipe against air entering the pipe. (Often this is done because of a back up in the drain, pull the drain hose out and get the pipe cleaned out and then put the hose in to the proper distance. Then leave the top of the standpipe open.)

For a picture of the standpipe, see http://www.appliance411.com/faq/washer-drain.shtml .

There is a parts diagram for your washer itself is here: http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/GE-Parts/Washer-Parts/Model-GLWN5050M0WS/0432/0153200?searchedModel=glwn5050&blt= .

I hope this helps.

Getting an error of h f on my front loader washer


f and h indicate that u have no water coming into the washer or very little water if you can see it filling the error indicates low flow. A flow meter
in the unit detects if 10.5 gallons fills the tub within 8 minutes; yours must not be. This will turn off the inlet valves and the error code will be displayed.
Make sure you don't have a siphoning problem This occurs when there is no air gap for the drain line or the stand pipe.standpipe should be 2 inches in diameter to allow a sufficient air gap between the top of the standpipe and the drain hose.
?The standpipe should be a minimum of 34" from the floor, and should not exceed 72 inches in height.
?DO NOT seal the top of the standpipe. Many consumers seal the standpipe in the belief that this will prevent overflows, or get rid of drain odors. This often creates more problems than solutions.
?DO NOT place the drain hose too far down into the pipe. Water stays in the drain trap area of the standpipe. If the end of the drain hose rests in this area, no air gap is created, and this can also cause siphoning. 4 to 6 inches is sufficient.
?The drain hose length must not exceed 10 feet in length. Excessive drain hose length can cause drain problems and back wash.
- Verify Drain Pump operation. Unplug the washer and take the lower panel under the door off by removing the three screws under the bottom edge. With the screws removed, the panel should drop down then come off. If it sticks, tap either side and it should come free. The pump is located directly under the wash tub in the front of the washer. Verify the electrical connections are good and that the pump is running. Open the pump access and remove, once you have all the water drained. Check the drain pump for foreign objects and debris. Check the pump impeller and make sure there's nothing caught in it. Items as small as toothpicks or cotton swabs have been known to stop this pump from working
Verify Flow meter operation and that the Pressure Switch hoses are intact and connected properly. Remove the three screws in the top panel along the back of the washer. With the screws removed, the panel should slide back, then, lift off. The flowmeter will be located on the left-hand side of the washer (facing from the front) between the inlet valve and dispenser. It's a small white plastic device with hoses attached. The pressure switch is located on the right-hand side of the washer in the rear. It is a round plastic device with electrical connections and a hose attached. There should be a tech sheet directly behind the panel or attached to one of the interior cabinet walls. if you have any further question please message me back and please remember to rank how this opinion has helped in your appliance situation Thanks again

Washer doesn't throw out the entire water after every wash


Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean (ref manual, it may not be there, they want to send over a tech at their convenience to make more $$). Locate your filter, it is below the main tub, you need good clip grip pliers. There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it (4 to 6 inches maximum) Of course some direct the hose into sink, fine. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too.

If still not good you should examine your pump which comes after the filter. Rate me pl if helped.

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.

Washer will not fill up completely


  • The drain standpipe is too short.
    To prevent siphoning, the standpipe must be at least 33 inches high for a top load washer or 24 inches high for a tumble action washer. Refer to the installation instructions that came with your washer for more information.
  • Drain hose fits too tightly in the standpipe causing siphoning.
    There must be an air gap between the drain hose and the standpipe to prevent siphoning action. The standpipe needs to be at least 1 1/4 inches in diameter.

Washer wont fill, keeps draining


If you do not allow an air gap for proper drainage on your drain line, the water will siphon out of the washer as it tries to fill. Double check to make sure: 1. You do not have the washer drain hose placed too far down into the standpipe. 2. You do not have the top of the standpipe sealed off. Placing the hose too far into the standpipe may cause the drain line to be sitting in water in the drain trap, leaving no air gap. Sealing off the top of the standpipe will have the same affect. Remember, you need an air gap for proper drainage. Only place the hose about 3 to 4 inches into the standpipe and the fit should not be tight. That is, there should be an air gap around the drain hose as it sits inside the standpipe. Double check and let me know if this helps.
