Water spitting out the top of the Siphon tube when filling...

During the initial fill up before washing, the Siphon's "vent hole" (at the top) has begun letting let water get out (spit out) and drip down the inside front of the machine. I removed the top and watched the leaking as the machine was being filled. When enough water accumulates in the bottom, it will drip down the front of the machine to the floor. The "vent hole", as I call it, is visible on the parts diagram at my dealer and the part number for the Siphon is #131863300, according to the Frigidaire website. Since the hole is supposed to be there, I have resisted putting a piece of tape over it. We didn't buy the unit (the previous owners of the house left it when they moved), but it was purchased in April, 2005. The unit is level left-to-right and front-to-back. It is on a Frigidaire? stand. We use the correct detergent (low suds), but I could get it to leak just using water. Any thoughts on how fix or why it started doing this? Thanks in advance.

Suggestion: Plug off the wall, etc. Remove the rear cover. There is a thin tube coming from the control panel area to the base where the water exits, this should not be blocked, remove from top and blow to check, refit.This tube controls the water level. Next clean out your outlet filter, it could be clogged, refit. Another thing that could be the problem: Try to take the top of the machine off; there are three tubes coming into the dispenser box, these may hv come loose or something. Connect well.

    This is a small door usually 4" square on the front of your machine, left or right below; you push this door and you get to a plastic knob which u turn anti-clockwise; be sure to expect some water........

How to check a miele novotronic anti syphon unit


During rinse, water usually flows through the softener dispenser. The cup fills up and a small siphon tube triggers a siphon action
which pulls the softener and water into the washer. This siphon tube is probably blocked with crud. See if you can pull a small cap like part out of the softener dispenser area. Clean both the inside of the cap and the hole under it. This will allow the water to flow into washer instead of flooding.

I have a Whirlpool Duet and the water is over flowing from the soap drawer. I have already cleaned out the soap drawer and tried flushing the opening that leads into the machine with a hose. Any other...


This is inevitably caused by a blockage. The small fabric conditioner compartment in the soap dispenser drawer has a removable plastic cap. This cap fits on the top of a tube which has a hole running through it where the water should siphon through.

When the time comes for the fabric conditioner to be released, cold water enters the small compartment and just washes the conditioner over the top and down the dispenser to the tub. When the water stops flowing, all that is left is the clear water. This water should siphon up the inside of the cap and down the tube.

This tube often gets blocked with the conditioner and if you remove the dispenser drawer and take off the cap you can give the whole thing a good clean out. If the cap is missing, the siphoning will not occur.

To test the function, hold the soap drawer under the tap and allow the water to fill the fabric compartment to overflowing. When you turn off the tap, the remaining water should slowly siphon out of the hole under the cap.

H F code during wash cycle


the "HF" code is initiated when the water turbine(counter) sees an excess amount of water to fill the machine to the prescribed level- many things can cause this problem,however simply throwing components at the machine will not necessarily fix it. here is what i have run across on at least 3 occasions; the w/l switch tubing(air tube) is supported by a small retainer that establishes the tubes routing toward the side of the machine near the cabinet- if the hose falls out of this retainer,it is allowed to dangle in the danger zone near the spinning pulley/belt- the belt contacts the hose and wears a thin spot in the tube just enough the machine to fill and begin to wash initially, but air escapes slowly and machine goes back into fill mode,eventually the water counter sends feedback to the controller that it has filled with an axcessive amount of water and defaults to the "HF" condition. the cure is simple-replace the rubber tube and secure it along the side of the machine away from the moving components. its certainly worth checking out.

Washing machine will not draw fabric conditioner


The Solution: Top up the softener tray with extra water so that it is up to the 'max level' mark.

The softener tray works by a siphon action. Thus, the reason the tray does not empty is that not enough water is added by the machine during the softening cycle, so that the machine does not completely fill the softening tray; only when the softening tray is filled beyond the 'max' mark does the siphon action works. A partially filled tray will never empty - it's impossible due to the siphon.

The reason that not enough water is added to the tray during the softening action is that the water inlet of the machine is partial blocked (you can try to fix that) but it is simpler to just added more water to the conditioner tray.

Thus, the easiest way to ensure that the softener tray empties every time (after adding the softener to the softener tray of course) is to top up the softener tray with extra water, top it up to the 'max level' line (keep a bottle of water by the machine). That way, even if only a little water is added to the softener tray during the softening cycle by the machine it is enough to trigger the siphon action and the tray will empty!

Works for me every time, and no need to remove any parts - I used to take the tray out, clean it, scrub the outlet holes that fill the tray etc, but they used to gum up again quite quickly!

Hope that helps

Automatic bleach dispenser fills up with water during fill cycle


You could have a clog in the housing underneath the dispenser where the water flows through a hose into the tub.
Pull the dispenser drawer completely out.
There is a tab that needs to be depressed to release the drawer and remove it.
Check the opening at the bottom of the housing just inside the dispenser housing opening to see if a small sock or garment is clogging this opening.
Reach down into this opening to see if an item is inside the hose.
This is the normal issue that will cause water to leak out of the dispenser housing.

Wash the dispenser drawer thoroughly with warm water. Make sure that you pull off the siphon covers and wash all siphon holes. This process is described in your owner's manual. Replace the dispenser drawer and try the washer again.

LF means long fill or that is what the repair tech told me when I first got my set and was having major issues with it. What he said was causing it during initial fill up the drain hose if inserted into the drain to far will create a siphon. It is a simple fix just barely put your drain tube into the wall and you should be set.
