Washer fills with water then drains:

The critical question is. Is the water is just running down the drain but the pump isn't running. If it is being pumped out, and you can hear the pump running just the same as when it's emptying prior to spin then it could be aborting the wash because it is, or it thinks it's overheating. ( due to defective water temperature switch)

If the pump is failing to shut off then there is something wrong with the electronics. If your washer is a mechanical timer controlled device then you may have a sticking switch (which may explain if switching cycles does something for you). But if you have an electronic timer then you may be experiencing a board failure, where a cycle is being commanded when it is not intended to by design.


If water isn't being pumped out, but just draining away all the time, the washer will keep detecting there isn't enough water inside and top up with more.
Modern washing machines should be sophisticated enough to realize something's wrong and abort with an error, but if not, it may continue washing or rinsing for a short while before losing enough water to trigger more coming in again. It can get stuck on this cycle indefinitely and it's called siphoning.
Siphoning occurs when the end of the drain hose is lower than the level of the water inside the washing machine.
Try raising the hose and see what happens.
Also the drain hose should have some type of air gap where it fits into the stand pipe. It should not have an air tight fit.

Again Either it's siphoning down the drain due to an issue with the plumbing, it's overfilling, or also if it ( THE WATER) overheats then in some machines the software will employ a fill and drain tactic to cool down the water. The important thing is to work out which of these different faults is causing the problem by careful observation.


Other switch's to check would be the water inlet valve and the water pressure switch with a multi meter for continuity or OHMS.

And in some modern washers that come with THERMISTORS:
One symptom of a washing machine that thinks it's overheating and thus fills and drains at same time ( possibly because of a faulty thermistor) is if it's filling with cold water and pumping out at the same time. This is covered in this articleWashing machine fills and drains at same timealthough the same symptom can be caused by other faults.

By the way my advice is free cuz God is good!

Tip

Washing machine takes a long time to end cycle.


When a washing machine takes a long time to complete the cycle, that means that one of the conditions required to complete the cycle takes a long time before being met or detected.

In simple words this means that, depending on what part of the cycle the machine hesitates, you are in one of the following conditions:

1 The water inlet is blocked or restricted.
2 There is a water heating problem, usually thermostat not detecting temperature correctly.
3 There is a drain blockage and drain takes longer than usual.
4 The pressure switch used to detect water level is defective, and timer board does not detect that drain is complete and keeps draining for a while.

1 If possible move the machine and check the inlet hose at the back, ensure that there is pressure, that the hose is not restricted or blocked. Check also for blockage at inlet valve.

2 This must be tested removing parts from washer and using a multimeter. The job is better done by a technician.

3 You can check the drain pump. On most front loader models this is accessible opening a panel at the front lower side of the washer, under the door. On top loads the pump is accessed from behind (also some top loader), and from underneath the washer. Instructions are often described in the manual. The hose or filter housing can be removed to check for blockage.

4 Same as 2, the pressure switch is replaced when there is long drain or water level related problems.

Disconnect power before performing any maintainance.

As first step check warranty status by contacting the manufacturer at the number listed on manual. Long cycle is a fault condition, if your warranty is still valid, manufacturer will send an authorized technician at their expenses.

Here a practical description of the problem. Article is referring to a Maytag Neptune: washing machine takes an unusually long time to complete

It takes long to fill with water


Holly, there are a number of reason why your washer may be taking a long time to fill. Some of them are very easy to fix. Can you give me the model number of your machine?

TAKES HOURS TO GO THROUGH THE CYCLES


Please check that the inlet filter for the water is not blocked, reduced inlet of water will extend the wash and rinse times by a considerable time.

Run the machine with the water turned off at the fawcet that will take the pressure out of the hose

Switch off the machine

Unscrew the connector at the back of the machine which holds the supply pipe in

Look in the hole which is revealed is ther a load of bits of grit and gunk in there , if there is pull out the filter and give it a wash under a tap.

I got a washing machine ''Admiral''Model 7010 i can not operate properly. It takes too much water and time as well.coulkd you pls send me the instruction manual so that i could save time and water. thank...


make sure the standpipe the washer drains into is higher than the water level in the machine and that the drain hose is not pushed too far down into the pipe as this may cause syphoning increasing cycle time and water usage.
