    The PVC pipe for the drain is about 4 inches from the ground. The hose coming out of the washer is about 4 inches as well. the hose right now comes up a few feet and back down to the drain which runs to the basement. the washer is in my kitchen which is the first floor. all the pipes below slope down where they patch into the main drain for the house.

    How high is disharge hose from the floor? if the drain hose is below water level it will drain out due to gravity.if it is in lower part of house and line is air tight to drain pipe it can vacume the water from unit when running water above level of washer. if this is case I can offer some ideas.

The drain needs to be above the actual water level or it will run out, the pvc should be above this point in order for the hose to get air and not act like trap and run out all that comes in,< woud suggest going to hardware store and getting piece to add on to 4 inch section with a coupler and washer drain cap>. they will cut to length, < take measurement of pipe size and length needed to get just bellow height of washer top, pvc goes together by cleaning and glueing, if the 4 inch piece has angle cut then it will have to be cut to strait line for good seal.

Amana NTW4700YQ Top Load Washer will not drain


Hopefully you have it under warranty. You will probably need another wire harness. Double check your outlet to make sure it is grounded properly because they will 'nit pick' and tell you it is your fault for not having a properly grounded outlet.

Amana washer machine will not hold water. The drain hose is fine. What esle could be wrong?


The drain hose could be stuck too far down the drain pipe allowing it to siphon the water out.Also if it seals too tight into the drain pipe it will siphon the water out.

Amana nav5800aww water on floor after spin cycle


Sounds very similar to having something such as a sock or small article of clothing that is too large to be sucked down the drain hose into the pump. So what happens is it hangs around between the inner and outer drums and sometimes gets itself lodged over the drum drain hole, and can allow water to be centrifically flung over the top of the drum. Most times when the spin cycle stops, the article of clothing will dislodge and float around inside the drum only to do it again later....
If you can remove the top of the machine, you can usually see the gap between the two drums and use a piece of coathanger wire with a small hook on the end and "go fishing in the area between the two drums and close to the drain hole location... bet you'll find something in there... Let me know how it goes... and if I can help .. ken
