Make sure the drain pipe is at least 34 inches above to bottom of the washer and that it is not sealed at that point. This will prevent siphoning.

Washer doesn't fill with water and begin wash cycle. I can hear it instantly draining out rather than fill, and has ran my well dry. We replaced the water pump a month ago, and it washed a few loads of...


Sounds like siphoning. This can happen if your drain pipe is too low and you run the drain hose right into it, or if there isn't any kind of air gap between the drain hose and pipe. Usually it shows up when trying to fill for the rinse cycle - it drains as fast as it fills. Or it might not fill at all. Order a "siphon break kit". They're cheap and easy to install

My washer will not fill. The water keeps running and it never fills and just drains out the drain tube.


Check and see if the height of your drain is right. Sometimes if the drain is too low, it will cause the water to just flow right out of the machine. Check out the attached photo. Hope this helps and best wishes.

New inglis washer expells water when fills


seems like no one wants to send you any love Richard. Well fear not, if you haven't figured this out yet, I'll do what I can. It seems to me that you have the drain hose lower than the top of the wash basket or a hole in that hose. If the drain hose is too low, the water will run out of the machine due to low center of gravity. Ideally, 6" above the level of the tub is sufficient. If there is a hole in that hose, replacement is pretty straight forward.

My danby fills and immediately drains.


Hi, It sounds like the drain hose has dropped lower then the water level in the washer. Check and see if the hose end is as high as the top of the washer.
I hope this helps you.

The water keeps running and it does not fill up.


If there is no water on the floor, it would have to be that the water entering the washer is going through the drain tube because it is too low, or for some odd reason the drain pump could actually be running, pumping out the water as its entering the washer. If there is water on the floor, there could be a leak anywhere along the drain tubing, the drain pump itself, or even the drum/basket seal.

Will not run wash properly


The sensor you are referring to could posslbly be the water level switch which controlls the level of water,and also. is a factor as to wether the washer will spin or not, it also is part of the heater circuit, so it has numerous functions.
I t can be found at the top right front of the washer, and is about 3" in diameter, and has a thin plastic tube going to it.
it could be sticking, there is no sure fire way of testing it properly, but you could try tapping it and blowing down the tube, it may solve the prob.
Hope this helps.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

Please help me with my washer


Hello browneyez070
Welcome,

You said, your Hotpoint top loader washing machine won't spin water out. Model VBXR1O6OVOWW?

Common causes before considering repairs.

Water won’t drain
Drain hose is kinked or
Improperly connected on it.

Solutions
• Top of drain outlet should be less than 8 ft. above floor.
• Straighten drain hose and make sure washer is not sitting

Let me know if these measures help.

Washer tub won't fill up with water


Sounds like you may have a siphoning problem. Have you checked the drain line by pulling it up out of the standpipe while the washer was filling? You may have a vacuum causing the water to constantly siphon. The following link explains this:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r587481-prevent_washer_siphoning

Having the drain hose high enough may not be the problem. You could very well have the hose stuffed in the standpipe too tight, or placed in the pipe too far. Please doublecheck and let me know if you need further assistance.

In addtion, please post the make and model number of your washer for better advice.

Just rehook the clear tube back onto the air dome (back right side of drum), drain any water from the drum, the refill, pressure switch will reset itself. Start to fill on small load size first, then move up when washer starts to be sure it reset all the sizes.

Washer fills then drains


Daisy, check your drain hose going into the drain. It sounds like you have a siphoning problem. If the drain hose does not have a air gap the water filling will siphon right out. Check this first and post back, Catriver.
