Question about Maytag Centennial 3.2 cu. ft. SuperSize Plus Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Washer hose too short!

We just had the Maytag Centennial Washer installed yesterday and the hose is too short. Water spills out of the drain pipe and all over the floor. Are there various hose lengths to choose from or is there an extension kit that need to be purchased? Also, since it was just installed yesterday (and since we purchased the five year warranty), do you think the company should be liable for fixing the problem since it was installed incorrectly?

Be sure its not your drain pipe. Incorrect installation should be covered by the installer, but warranty companies are covering install failures for 30 days....contact the installer and place a damage report. Take pictures of the damage....also call the manufacturer, inform them of the problem they will want a technician to take a look at the unit...again will cover install failue for 1st 30days(at no charge to you) so the service company should not charge you anything. Drain hoses are usually a standard 3 feet long i believe. I'm not aware of any factory extension kit. but if you go to a hardware store and by some rubber tubing large enough to fit your drain hose and go to the drain, secured with a hose clamp at the hose and a ziptie at the drain, that should work fine.

My zanussi washer zwh6160 p stopped working yesterday. It stopped with a load in it. We gad to manually drain it, then git the door open. We cleaned the filter and inlet pipe filter. We switched it on


Considering that machine did not show any error first check that is not activated option "rinse hold" what mean's "stop drum with full of water". I advise you to make a simple test that will show you where the problem is. In the washing machine or somewhere else. Disconnect the drain hose and lift it up to 1m in height and its end hold over the tub or some larger container. Select short drain program and press the start / pause button. If drain hose ejects a solid water stream then is a problem in-house installation of drain water. If does't or poorly drain water then is problem in the washing machine.

Maytag Centennial Top Load Washer drains as it fills.


The water is probably siphoning out of the tub. Your drain pipe is either too low or the drain hose is down too far into the pipe. Take the drain hose out of the pipe and lift it high. I'll bet your problem goes away

Maytag centennial washer - not draining on some settings


Check outlet hose for kinks or restrictions. Make sure the outlet hose is free to expel water at full volume. Make sure the outlet hose is not mounted to high. Check pump impellor has all it's vanes intact. Check for coins in all hoses & pump.

Washer will spin to dry but water comes back after short time


how far down is the drain hose pushed in to the drain pipe?should only be like 3 to 4 inches,also the drain hose should be up higher than the water level in the tub.if you can pull out the drain hose try this,fill up the washer on small,after it fills,pull the hose out of the pipe and then stick the hose a few inches into the drain pipe and then turn the timer to the spin cycle and let it drain,after it stops,pull the drain hose out of the pipe,if no water enters back into washer you know that it has something to do with the way the drain hose is in the pipe or another problem.if you're saying that the drain hose is sealed to the drain pipe in the wall you will have to get in there and separate it,pull out the hose and check it,it sounds like this is where the problem is,you had the pump changed and i don't know why the guy would do this if the washer was draining so you know that's not the problem and if they changed the water valve on the washer you know water isn't leaking into the washer from the valve so i would check the drain hose.hope this helps

My Maytag washer pumps water out of the washer faster than it will drain out of the stand pipe. Is there a way I can reduce the rate the water comes out of the washer? George


No sorry thier is no way to reduce the rate of drainage..the standpipe should be able to handle it,what i believe the problem is that the standpipe is partially blocked and needs to be snaked out to clean it or try some liquid plumber to clear the restriction in the pipe

My used Kenmore washer fills with water then the water level drops downto about the half way level in drum. I just bought it used and installed it yesterday. Could the water be siphoning out into drain...


It sounds as if it is siphoning out the drain pipe.You have to get the drain pipe up to the top of the washer and also be sure that the pipe is a little bigger than the drain hose or it will siphon. Hope this helps.

Waste drain does not take in water, spills out.


Replace the clogged drain pipe. You need a plumber. Washer is ok.
