Hi, I am trying to help daughter-in-law get their


Hello annp, thank you for your post! Based on the symptoms you are describing, it does sounds like a siphoning issue. Generally speaking, the drain hose should come up above the washer tub and please make sure the drain hose is not too deep in to the house drain pipe. The drain hose should only be submerged 4-8 inches into the house drain pipe. If correct, otherwise the unit might be experiencing a communication with the control board and water fill valve. At this point, please reach out to an expert technician to ensure the appropriate replacement part is ordered and is installed correctly to prevent future issues. I hope this information helps to some degree - please do not hesitate to reconnect.

Mine fills up and drains at the same time also doesnt agitate during wash cycle


This happens on new installations usually. The drain hose must be higher than the highest fill height of the washer. If the drain hose is to low it will create a siphon effect and drain the machine. Next is the drain hose is to tight in the standpipe. The standpipe is your homes plumbing. If the drain hose does not have an air gap around it, it can cause a siphon effect and start draining your machine as it fills. If none of these are the problem and your drain pump is running at the same time it is filling you will need to replace the control. http://appliancehelponline.com/washerdrainsfills.html

Washer continuously filling/emptying


Your drain hose from the washer is in your household drain line too far, should not be any further in the drain line than 7 inches

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.

Whirlpool washer fills, begins to agitate, then drains


Water siphoning out the drain line
If the water is continues to fill and water is draining while it is filling or agitating, Check the height of the stand pipe. It should be about 36" above the floor. If the height is correct it may need to have an anti-siphoning valve installed into the drain line.
moz-screenshot.jpgThe washer fills and drains at the same time only on the rinse cycle.
Shut the machine off with timer during this period and raise the drain hose. If the water continues to drain, you will need to install an anti-siphon kit.

Washer fills up than starts draining while in wash cycle


Hello , here is the fix-your drain hose is placed to low in the drain line in the wall, it can not be placed in water or it will siphon the water out of your washer into the drain pipe and it wont stop until it hits air. try pulling your drain hose up and out of the drain and get a zip tie or cable and tie it to one of the water valves by the drain pipe placing the end of the drain hose about 5-6 inches inside the drain pipe. Let me know if you have any other questions and good luck it will work.
