You have a siphon condition. The water is siphoning out as it fills.
Make sure you only have about 6 inches of the drain hose stuck into the house drain and make sure there is an air gap where the hose goes into the pipe so air can get into pipe. If you have the drain sealed to keep water from backing out of it, you will need to get the pipes cleaned for the washer to work properly.
The pressure of the water going through the pump during siphon is not enough to turn it on the machine.
Post back if you need more help.

    No, there is nothing to stop the water except having the drain hose looped higher than the water level of the tub.The pump is not a tight seal.

It will not drain or fill. Why is it leaking under right corner but not from the door?

Hello. You will have to remove the kick panel to exposed the workings underneath the unit. Water takes the path of least resistance and it could be coming from anywhere. The float switch is located on the right side near the front. The seal could be leaking. There are hoses to the drain pump, main pump, etc...You will need a flashlight to look closely as to what is actually leaking--have towels and especially a wet/dry vac ready(no home should be without one!) If you can isolate the leak, I can provide more assistance with exploded diagrams and/or part numbers. I hope I helped you!

LG drains and fills at same time.

This is caused by the " the flood" circuit at the bottom of the dishwasher that detects some water leak. Once this circuit detects any water on the bottom of the washer, it immediately switches the pump out circuit on. It consists of a polystyrene float coupled to a micro switch. You need to dry the bottom and then check for leaks (hose or hose clamp).

Air conditioner leaked a lot of fluid that looked like water after being on all night. Do you think this is an easy fix, or what do you think is wrong with it? Thanks

All air conditioning units have built in drains. When the drain is clogged the water fills the drip pain and spills out. An easy fix is to open you unit and just wipe the drains. If you cannot find the drain find where the water is coming from and trace the water to the source. The other possibility is that the unit has a dehumidifier that is not properly sealed and it is leaking the water it collects if so find the dehumidifier (usually labeled) and pull the cover off clean the seal and put cover back on (may snap into place) and see what happens the next day.

My washing machine is a Roper top load washer. The problem I am having is that the pump from the cold water drain from under the washing machine. Do I need another pump? The hot water will work. I use the...

This model is a direct drive with only one pump, the drain pump. If the drain pump leaks, which is a common problem on these models, it will leak no matter what temperature wash is selected! If you a have a leak on cold, it will probably also leak on warm wash. Your problem is your solenoid operated fill valve on the cold side. Only one fill hose comes off of this combination fill valve to your fill plenum at the top back of your tub. So if it leaks on the cold, but not hot, check for a crack in the plastic housing of the valve on the cold half. The valve is located on the inside back of the machine on top right when looking at the front of the machine. They are fairly inexpensive and easy to replace.

Hope this helps

Water is leaking from the bottom of the machine and will not fill up


Your water leak can come from 3 areas:

1) drain hose on back of washer is coming off / splitting / getting loose

2) water pump is leaking (cracked?) or has a gasket that has deteriorated.

3) hose between tub and water pump has come off / split / became loose.

Since your washer isn't able to hold water, it makes it easy to remove the clothes, and lean the washer forward to see what is going on. Most washers' mechanicals can be acessed from either the bottom, or from the back via access panel. The water leaks are generally a pretty easy repair.

if its coming out of the bottom of the radiator when filling you have a split tank in the radiator, you can have it welded, if its anywhere near the front bottom of engine its the hose, if its coming from the engine but unsure where it could be your water pump. check the hose clamps are all fine, if you see white residue anywhere its leaking fluid thats leaked and dried, thats where your leak is coming from.

Drain pump runs continously

Sounds like you have a leak under the unit. There is a float in the bottom that turns the pump on when it has water in the lower pan. It won't let any water fill until it is dry.

Leaking wash machine

Depending on where exactly the leak is coming from, it could be a drain hose, drain pump, or tub seal. If this is a top-loader, here's how you can tell:

1. If the leak is coming from the BACK area under the washer, this can be caused by a leaking fill hose, dispenser hose, drain hose, or fill valve.
2. If the leak is coming from UNDER the center area of the washer, this could be your tub seal, a crack in the tub, or an air dome hose leak. NOTE: If the air dome hose is leaking, the washer will fill continuously and not turn off.
3. If the leak appears to be coming from the FRONT under the washer, this could be your drain pump, or drain hoses.

Posting a model number, could assist with determining how your washer is configured. I suspect you may have a drain pump leaking as this is the most common cause, but I want to be sure.

Leaking water on floor during drain cycle

First the source of the leak needs to be identified. pull the machine out from under the counter and remove the left side panel exposing the blue float assembly. Turn the machine on and observe the fill cycle. if water comes out anywhere on the fill mechanism then the inlet valve needs to be replaced. once the machine has filled and begun to cycle cancel the program and drain the unit. observe closly where the leak is happening. a leak during drain usually indicated a leaking drain hose.
