Question about Electrolux EW1000i Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Washer Empties Immediately

The minute I turn on my washing machine and the water starts to fill up, it comes right out at the bottom and onto my floor. I don't think it's a hose leaking (though I could be wrong), because I think in that case, there would be a CONSTANT leak. With this there is ONLY water when the machine is running. Could there be a leak in the tub or something? I can't do a load at all because the water comes right out onto the floor. Help please! :)

Sounds like you may have a hole inside the inner tub, depending on the model an the labor might be cheaper to buy a new one, i priced one for my old kenmore an was told 150 DLS. AM IN chicago, but i took it apart found the hole an sanded the hole with some sand paper, used a little piece of plastic patch looks more like a window screen an then used about 3 layers of JB weld an it fixed so far, is been working for over 6 months, knock on wood........lol.............good luck..........

Make sure that the top of the waste water pipe is at the correct height for the machine, typically around 30-34 inches from the floor (see your installation instructions). If it is any lower then it will start a siphoning action as soon as the water reaches the same level in the machine and never actually fill up and hence the cycle will not start. If the machine detects that insufficient water has entered the machine within a given time, typically 8 minutes, then if flags an error to the on board controller. If the error persists after the waste pipe height is corrected then check out the pressure switch for correct operation as if this is not triggered then the cycle will also not start or will halt almost immediately.

WHEN I TURN WASHER ON WATER STARTS POURING OUT OF THE BOTTOM OF THE MACHINE AND ONTO THE FLOOR. WATER IS COMING FROM THE BOTTOM LEFT SIDE.


The drum seal is bad. The seal allows the center to come up through the tub and the tub to rotate around it, It usually has a rubber membrane that flexes so the tub can rock around. The rubber tears and the water runs right out. If you can, disassemble the washer and change the seal, otherwise the washer is toast. Sorry! You can verify this by pouring water in from a bucket. If this water doesn't run through then it is the hose from the fill valve to the water outlet under the lid.

Washing Machine Emptying


Sure sounds like a hole or crack in the tub.  Unplug power, shut off water, and disconnect the hoses.  Tilt the washer onto its front and look underneath.  Use a light to inspect the tub bottom and sides for a hole or crack. If it is small enough you might be able to plug it with silicone sealant.

Top loaing washer fills then mostly empties repeatedly


Check you drain line. It may be too low or the air gap is blocked at the drain pipe.
A test is remove the drain pipe from the wall drain. Hold it up high and turn the washer on to fill.
If it fills and stops, then starts agitation. Repair the drain hose.

If it only leaks in drain it has to be a hole in the drain hose or a plugged up house drain.
