Question about Whirlpool Ultimate Care II LSQ9549L Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Water runs straight through to drain hose

When the machine starts to fill it takes a small amount of water and then starts emptying through the drain hose. This problem has only started today, as the machine has been working perfectly these past five years.

    Your drain hose is siphoning because the air gap at the drain inlet is stopped up or the drain pipe is holding water.

Has the drain hose been moved?  The outlet of the hose needs to be higher than the top of the tub to prevent water siphoning out.

Maytag washer empties as soon as it fills. Does not complete a cycle


Hi Terri.
If the machine actively pumps the water out while it's filling it sounds like a timer problem and would require a visit from a technician.
If, however it merely runs out while filling you probably have the drain hose in a position which allows the water to run straight through the machine.
Make sure the hose is above the level of the water in the machine. Be careful not to create a syphon.
Check the installation directions.
Good luck
Nomess

The end of the hose should be above the water level in the machine

Haier HLP21N washer won't fill. Water runs right through from the faucet to the drain hose.


Is the hose in the sink or on the floor? If in the sink, it sounds like the pump is running all the time. If the hose is too low, it maybe syphoning out the water as fast as its going in.

Water is coming in through the entry hose and running straight out the drain hose. No agitate, no spin, just constant water. Happened after I tried to wash three towels & got an imbalance alarm. R


Is the discharge hose higher than the machine? If it is Lower it will never fill. Don't think there is a shut off in the hose to stop the water discharge.

Same complaint but my washer is FULL of water that will not drain


Take the drain hose off the back and dump it into a bucket , make sure that you remove any clips on the hose so that it lays down flat

It will take several buckets but the machine will empty

Turn off the water supply to the machine and see if it will do a spin cycle once it is empty

If it does then turn on the water to the machine with the power turned off , if water runs into the machine then the fill valve is shot and needs to be replaced.

If it starts and stops filling via the turning on and off of the power then you have a problem with the pressure switch or Air Bell and that needs a man who can

Zanussi ZWF1437W E23


E23 indicates Drain pump faulty; Wiring faulty; PCB faulty.

The service information also says it should stop with the door open.



Unplug the appliance and manually remove the water via the filter or front drain point if it's fitted.

Drain it into a shallow dish, tighten the filter when you need to stop the water (or plug the hose if draining via a hose) while you empty the container.



Once empty, try the door again.

Take the filter out and clean out any debris in it.

Plug the appliance in and put the machine on a drain programe.

Listen/look at the open filter to check that the drain pump is running.

Liquid bleach tank WM2277HS


Liquid bleach tank? Do you mean the small container one puts fabric conditioner into for the final rinse?

They have a siphonic action. In normal use you put a small amount of liquid into the tank and when the machine starts the final rinse, water is added. Once above a certain level the siphon starts and empties the tank into the machine.

Take the drawer out of the machine, put it in the sink and slowly run water into the tank and you'll see that the level rises to a point then the tank empties.

So, perhaps you are adding too much bleach (or whatever) and the liquid is siphoning out before you even close the drawer.

Or do I misunderstand your problem completely?

Will not hold water during initial cycle


The drain hose needs to be lifted above the high fill level in washer.The easiest way to fix this is take the drain hose (if your drain hose starts from the bottom of machine and goes up)tie or strap it to the back of the washer so it cant sag or drop down and start syphoning the water.Remember the washer will drain out the water if the drain hose is lower than the amount of water in the tub.Thats why your making sure by tieing the drain hose to the highest point before it makes it way to the drain .

Calypso - water goes straight to drain hose-not drum


the hose may still be filled from last cycle. try to put machine in final spin mode where all water from previous wash will be spun out the drain hose. once a siphon is started it can only be stopped by introducing air into the drain hose.
