    Your washer probably has a pump problem.
    Check first for 115/220V on pump's tags.
    In case you can read 115/220V on its tags,you should remove the pump from the washer and try to rotate its pulley manually. If it doesn't turn freely (frozen or stiff),look for foreign objects, if it still will not turns freely it should be replaced.

    Good luck!

Your water level has a reset on the panel? You need to drain all the water out of the tub and turn the water level to the lowest setting. Now start the fill and watch the water come up. It may be that it needs to be looked at but it is just a hose on the side of the tub that fills and air pressure registers in the control panel that stops the water filling.

Water is draining from hot tub after its filled & dont know why


Hi Mary,sounds like your drain stopper may not be closing tight.Try removing the stopper by turning it counter clockwise,then jam a small rag in the drain as tight as you can to stop the water and fill the tub.If it still leaks then the drain plug where the stopper goes may have to be re-sealed or one of the jets may have a leak.If the tub is over a ceiling do not keep re-filling the tub you will cause major water damage to the rooms below.

Ftf2140fs1 water fills up tub and over flows with door open when not using it


Hi Greg Meigs - If your washer will not stop filling up with water and overflows the tub, check for one of these problems:

1) Turn off the electricity to the washer. If the water *stopped* filling when power was disconnected, the problem would usually be in the control system of the machine. If the water still continues, then the plunger in the water valve is either stuck open or slow to close. Try turning the water faucets off and on a few times. This small joltmight unstick the water valve. If not, it will need replacing.

2) There could be a problem with the water level switch. Call in a professional.

3) There is a pressure switch hose that is attached to an air dome. This switch tells the washer that there is water in the tub and allows the agitator to start.

- Remove the control panel and you will notice a small hose. See if it popped off of the air dome. If it did, secure it with a zip tie.

If water flow continues, but drains out immediately, then raise the drain hose above the highest water level line of the tub. Do not seal the drain hose to the discharge pipe. This could cause a siphoning action.

My maytag mtw5600tq1 washer won't hold water. Its


Hi,
Its sounds like you have a siphon going on, this happens when the drain hose it too low during fill and as the water enters the unit it exits through the drain hose. To stop this the drain hose needs to be higher than the tub itself, meaning: raise the drain hose behind the washer to about control panel area. This will or should stop the siphon effect and allow the water to remain in the tub. If the drain hose is low this siphon will start again.
I hope this helps

Water keeps filling but will not start cycle.


The top load washer utilizes a pressure switch attached to a clear plastic hose. If the water fills the tub but will not stop filling you will need to remove the top panel and inspect the hose for obstructions. You may need to disconnect the tube flush it clean and make sure no foreign debris are in the connector on the pressure switch. If the tub will over fill, you may need to replace the pressure switch. If the water will not fill the tub and the water continues to run you need to check the drain pump. Is water exiting through the drain hose? If so the drain pump could be the problem.

Had a LD error and successfully cleared clog in waste water tank. Turned it on and pump worked perfectly to pump out water. Started a new cycle to test everything and things went wrong. First, the tub...


If the water keeps filling with the unit unplugged you have a bad water valve(or low house pressure)
If the unit does stop filling when unplugged you have a plugged pressure hose to the pressure switch or a bad pressure switch. To access you peel back the front emblem to remove a screw in the center. This allows you to raise the top to check the pressure hose. You can also find the end of the hose at the control panel to blow through it, should be clear when tub is empty of water. A hole in the pressure hose would also cause flooding. This hose connects from the bottom of the outer tub to the pressure switch in the console to control the water level in the tub. Unit will not turn on drain pump if it does not sense water in the tub......
good luck......

When tub filling, it drains out at the same time.


The outlet of the drain hose must be higher than the water level inside the tub--normally the pump inside removes the water when needed. Get a plumber to install a proper height drain pipe for you.

Tub fills only 1/2 full but water keeps running as if the tub is not full. If the water level is set to 1/2 or less, tub fills 1/2 full and begins to cycle. The water is running into the tub but not...


Check the drain hose to make sure you have a high loop, ie. make sure the drain hose loops above the height of the washer lid before going to the drain pipe.
Also make sure the drain hose is not going too far down into the drain pipe.
You may be getting a siphon effect.

Check to make sure your drain hose has a loop at least as high as washer top.  If the drain hose is not looped higher than tub water will continue to drain and it won't stop filling.  If it doesn'y reach the correct fill level it won't agitate.
