Do you have the hose inserted too far down in the drain standpipe? If so, you may have created a situation called "siphoning". You need to have an air gap so the hose will drain properly, and doesn't drain when you don't need it to. If the hose is resting in the trap area of the drain, it stays submerged in water and will siphon the water from the washer as it fills. Another situation that occurs is when consumers try to seal the top of the standpipe to keep odors from coming back up through the drain and/or to prevent overflows. This can also cause siphoning. Just some things to consider. Double check your drain hose and let me know if this helps you.

Since your washer worked fine while in Germany and now is exhibiting this problem at your new home, you may want to double check how it was installed. I suspect you may have a problem known as "siphoning". The following link explains:

This could be a simple situation where the drain line on the washer is not installed correctly. There are minimum height and length requirments on the drain line. In addition, make sure the stand pipe you have the drain hose inserted in has a proper air gap to allow draining. All of this is explained in the link provided.

I hope this information is helpful to you. The majority of the situations arise from improper installation and is not an operaitonal problem with the washer. If, however, you double check everything and still have problems, please post back and let me know.

SOURCE: water running out when washing machine is filling?

Hi jojolevaokah

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.

LSE7806A stack: the wash fills to the water level/load size selected. it starts to agitate then stops and begins to fill with water again which causes overflow, help please

Your fill sensor is leaking and allowing air pressure from the clear tube to seep out. First make sure your clear tube from the tub to the water level valve is firmly connected. If it is then you may need to get a new water level adjuster switch.
