    Hey MrMark52
    I did the hoses they are fine the water is escaping into the machine but sinks directly to the bottom so it's still not filling up, when it goes into a rinse the water comes out it's a Fisher & Paykel Pride 5.5 Smart Drive.

    I have a Maytag washer. (only 1 year old). The water is going into it, but does not fill up. It just keeps filtering through. I took all of the clothes out of the tank and re-balanced them... not sure if that did anything. I tried it again and it worked. But then, tried another load and it was back to the same thing.

    Washing machines do not generally fill all the way up.

    But since this machine is built for the European market, I am not able to help you any further. I am certain someone else can help you more.

    Turn the water off, unplug the washer, and pull it out from the wall. Disconnect both hoses and check each end for a strainer. If the strainers are clogged, clean them. It there are no strainers, check inside the hose connection point ont he back of the washer.

    Reply back if you have any additional questions.

If it fills with water but won't wash, is it the timer


hi mary,i just wrote and asked you for the model number,if this is a regular top load washer it could be the timer as long as you don't hear the motor running,if you do hear the motor running you could have a broken motor coupling because the drain pump is on the motor shaft so it will drain,
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9K1KHEogf3c
if you don't hear the motor it could be the timer,when it should agitate try tapping on the timer and see if it works,it has points in it and they can get stuck together or burn out and have no contact like you're saying but it's just a guess without seeing it but if the timer is advancing through with no agitation it could be the timer,did you try any other cycles

Fills with water, drains, will not spin. sometimes will not fill


This is almost certainly the filter to the empty pump blocked. When you power up the machine, the first thing it does is make sure there is no water left over in the tub, if it can't evacuate any water it finds there, it won't go any further. Same on a spin, if after a set time the water hasn't emptied the empty cycle will stop but the spine cycle wont start because there is still water in the drum.

Locate and clean your empty pump filter.

Tub fills with water when not in use. Can't hear it running, but fills about a gallon overnight. I set it to spin and drain, it empties, next morning it has a gallon again.


your water solenoid valve is bad,unplug the unit and see if it still runs in about a gallon w/o the unit powered from the wall even if the unit is shut off,then you will know its a defective water valve

Water runs into tub but does not fill?


be sure the drain hose is not lower than the wash tub this will caust the water to run out, 2nd be sure the drain hose is not pushed to far into the house stand pipe and the there is rome for air to go inbetween the drain hose and stand pipe eather of these will cause the machine to siphon mostly on rince cycle or on the 2nd and third loads you do. last your house drain could be starting to back up fill the washer with water and listen to it drain if you hear a gurggling sound in the house pipe you may need a plumber to cleanthis out for you.
