Your drain may have a root growing into the drain and the water pump is simply too powerful for the drain to keep up. Here is a cheap, fast and easy solution. Buy some pvc pipe equal to the inner diameter of your drain hose and clamp it on with a reducing clamp to restrict the flow, then reduce more until the overflow condition stops. Sure beats calling rotorooter.
Disconnect the discharge hose from the washer and look for a clog at both ends of the hose. Also, look down where the discharge port is on the washer and clear out the clog there also. If you see no clogs, then make sure your discharge hose is not crimped at such an angle to prevent water from flowing through. Also, make sure your discharge hose is not running on the floor and that it goes vertical straight 4.5 to 5 feet from the floor and then loops directly into the discharge pipe. Give that a shot. Still no water drain? Then the water pump needs to be replaced.
hello, 1 possable problem a pretty common problem and the solution is blindingly simple. It’s caused by the drain hose siphoning water out of the washer tub. There are two common causes for siphoning and I’ll explain both of them below.
One cause for siphoning is simply that the drain hose discharge is below the fill level of the washer tub. This picture shows the minimum drain height needed to avoid siphoning.
Another common cause for siphoning is not having an air break between the drain hose and the drain stand pipe. Usually, this isn’t a problem since the drain hose diameter is usually much smaller than the diameter of the drain stand pipe. But sometimes folks will inadvertently remove the air break by duct taping the drain hose to the stand pipe. They might do this because the drain hose keeps popping out of the stand pipe when the washer pumps out the tub. Other times, the drain hose might fit into the stand pipe with a tight interference fit.also check your water inlet valve filter/screen make sure its not clogged.
if the home drain pipe is larger than the washer drain pipe and water is backing up the house stand pipe, the issue is in the house not the washe, you cannot cut down the amount of water that the washer discharges during the pump out cycle, doing so will void your warranty and cause problems with the pump, whitch now are mostly electric and can not stand any backpressure on them
