Possibly broken downspout. I am gonna post a coupling replacement guide. It has nothing to do with your problem other than it shows you hw to get into the washer so you can repair the downspout. The downspout has a small hose runnung into it from the water valve. It mounts in the rear wall of the washer by squeezing the backside of it and snapping it into place. The back wall does NOT come off. So how can you access the innards? Click HERE

I have a Kenmore 500 top load washer that doesn't hold water. As it is filling for the wash cycle all the water runs down the drain


The drain hose outlet must be higher than the 'full' water level in the tub or the water will syphon out until the tub water equals the hose height. If the drain system you are using for the washer is floor level, then you need to install a vertical pipe (1-1/2" minimum) to place the hose end into at the top and it should eject the water through a 90 degree elbow onto the floor at the bottom. There are more elegant solutions, but this will stop the tub from self-draining. Good luck!

Washer drains at it fills up, so water level never gets to where it needs to be. This is in all cycles. Machine never get to a point where it starts running.


Your drain hose needs to have the "curved" part above the level of the basket top. Otherwise, water will continually run out (usually onto the floor).

Some models have a stand alone water pump that is turned on to drain the washer. The timer (during drain, spin, etc cycles) turns this pump on and off. If your hose is inserted into the stand pipe as it should be, then the water pump being turned on is likely the problem.

Since you aren't mentioning that water is all over your floor, I think that a loose / torn hose can be ruled out as well. You need another timer switch assembly.

Whirlpool Washer model # LSN1000KQ0 overfilling


did you plug the hose back into the water level switch, double check to see if it is plugged, if it is your water level switch might be defective. trouble shoot by taking the front panel off... turn on the washer by using the timer, set water level to small...on the bottom of the tub housing there should be a nipple where the clear hose connects onto.....follow the clear hose from the switch down to the bottom of the tub.........disconnect the clear hose on the bottom of the tub.....plugg the nipple with your finger.........gently blow into the hose with your mouth.......but make sure the water level in the tub is at least at half way full...and the washer is on and filling up with water ...after you blow into the hose the washer should agitate.......if it does agitate your water level switch is defective...connect hose back........get your model number and source for the switch.........

Washer overflowing and running out bottom..all over my floor. It is not flooding out of drain.overflowing the tub..like it doesn't know what level of water it is at. Any suggestions?


yes; the water control switch is under the control panel it has a clear hose attached to it. the hose goes to a nipple on the tub. the weight of the water pressing down on the air in this hose turns off the water level switch. the hose has probably come loose from the tub or, the switch. also the switch could be bad. you can check the switch by blowing into the tub end and, listening for a soft click or. use a multimeter.

Gcxrpo9odoww GE washer .. On fill up, it over flows onto floor?


Fill switch could be bad, or fill tube could be plugged making water not stop and it keeps filling. The fill tube goes from fill load selector switch to bottom of tub. Remove from top and blow it out. If this doesnt work replace water load size selector switch.

Overfills at all level settings and leaks onto floor. Can you help?


HI, the water level switch(aka pressure switch), is responsible for regulating the water fill level in this situation. It does this through a plastic tube which runs from the switch in the control console down to the side of the outer tub, near the bottom . The tube is filled with air. As water enters the tub it also enters the tube. As water climbs inside the tube, it pushes on the air trapped inside and increases the air pressure. When the air pressure reaches a certain level, it triggers the switch.

I would advise to Inspect the air tube for kinks, breaks or damage. The tube should also be free of water. The tubing should be securely connected to the bottom of the outer tub and to the bottom of the water level switch. If there is water present, the switch must be replaced.

The water level switch has three connectors. Label and disconnect the wires from the switch. Test the switch for continuity using a multimeter. Set the multimeter to the ohms setting X1. It will be necessary to test each of the three possible pairs. replace the switch if it fails the continuity test.

Tub does not stop filling up and water is leaking onto the floor


Check for a faulty water level switch. This is a diaphragm-like device with a small plastic tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level increases, so does the pressure on the air in the plastic tube and when it reaches a certain level it activates the switch to turn off the water. Look for any obstructions in or damage to the plastic tube. The switch can be tested using a multimeter or ohmmeter. Check fo continuity. A lack of continuity indicates a faulty switch. Sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.

Water running out


Is it from the water valve assembly or coming from under the machine? if it's from under the machine you may have a bad fill hose or a bad tub gasket, But I need some more info to help you.

Washing Machine Emptying


Sure sounds like a hole or crack in the tub.  Unplug power, shut off water, and disconnect the hoses.  Tilt the washer onto its front and look underneath.  Use a light to inspect the tub bottom and sides for a hole or crack. If it is small enough you might be able to plug it with silicone sealant.
