Washing cycle wont finish, has trouble emptying


if it drains into a bucket it should drain into the stand pipe too,does it overflow out of the stand pipe (waste pipe) when draining?if so the pipe is blocked,also how high is the pipe?draining into a bucket might be less on the pump because gravity is helping drain if bucket is on floor,if the pipe is up high it might not be able to push it,there could be something in the drain hose that goes from the tub to the pump if it did drain no problems before,also when you stick the drain hose into the stand pipe if it's tight it might not have enough air getting into pipe to let it drain,fill the washer,put it on drain after you have some water in it,pull the drain hose out to the top of the stand pipe and let it drain,if it drains ok and water is going down pipe with no back up then it's an air problem,hard to say without being there,you're just gonna have to play detective,did you try to hold the bucket up higher than the washer so the water won't siphon out,if the bucket is up higher than the water level in the machine and it drains then you have a problem with the stand pipe or air gap problem.

Drain stand pipe Washer fills and drains at same time. Manual says the drain stand pipe must be greater than 30 degrees. I would like to have a description of the drain stand pipe and it's...


30 degrees or 30 inches. The drain stand pipe is separate from the washer and usual plumbed in behind the washer. You bring the the drain hose up to the top of the standpipe and then push the end (forming an upside down U at this point) into the top of the open 2-3" diameter PVC pipe and secure it so that it won't back out (but do not seal the opening). Nylon ties or hose clamps will work. The height requirement is so that the bottom of the hose in the standpipe is above the water level in the washer - this avoids the drain siphoning the water out of the washer. Check how far into the standpipe the drain hose has been pushed. If it is below the level of the water in the washer, back it out. Check the height of the standpipe. Many washer manuals recommend a 34" standpipe (max height of 48") based on the drain hose length on the down side of the U. Also make sure no one sealed the top of the standpipe against air entering the pipe. (Often this is done because of a back up in the drain, pull the drain hose out and get the pipe cleaned out and then put the hose in to the proper distance. Then leave the top of the standpipe open.)

For a picture of the standpipe, see http://www.appliance411.com/faq/washer-drain.shtml .

There is a parts diagram for your washer itself is here: http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/GE-Parts/Washer-Parts/Model-GLWN5050M0WS/0432/0153200?searchedModel=glwn5050&blt= .

I hope this helps.

The water in my machine does not stop flowing it keeps going through the out let pipe


Make sure that the drain hose does not stick too deep into the stand pipe or drain tub. The end of the drain hose should be elevated about 9 inches higher than the top of the washer to prevent siphoning. Cut the excess of the drain hose if it sticks too deep into the stand pipe or drain tub.

Please specify the brand and model of the washer if the problem is not resolved above for specific troubleshooting guide.

LSR8233JQ0Washer won't fill


The water is syphoning out the drain hose.
Many times when the stand pipe is backing up someone will seal the washer drain hose to the pipe to avoid overflow of the stand pipe.
This causes the water to syphon from the washer.

Or the opening for the stand pipe is just big enough to put the drain hose in and is to tight causing the syphon.

Putting the drain hose to far down the pipe can cause a syphon also.

Amana washer machine will not hold water. The drain hose is fine. What esle could be wrong?


The drain hose could be stuck too far down the drain pipe allowing it to siphon the water out.Also if it seals too tight into the drain pipe it will siphon the water out.

Washer will only fill halfway


hello, 1 possable problem a pretty common problem and the solution is blindingly simple. It’s caused by the drain hose siphoning water out of the washer tub. There are two common causes for siphoning and I’ll explain both of them below.


drain-min.jpgOne cause for siphoning is simply that the drain hose discharge is below the fill level of the washer tub. This picture shows the minimum drain height needed to avoid siphoning.
Another common cause for siphoning is not having an air break between the drain hose and the drain stand pipe. Usually, this isn’t a problem since the drain hose diameter is usually much smaller than the diameter of the drain stand pipe. But sometimes folks will inadvertently remove the air break by duct taping the drain hose to the stand pipe. They might do this because the drain hose keeps popping out of the stand pipe when the washer pumps out the tub. Other times, the drain hose might fit into the stand pipe with a tight interference fit.also check your water inlet valve filter/screen make sure its not clogged.

Frigidaire front load washer won't drain or spin


This often is a drain hose that is too low or a drain hose that has been pushed too far down inside the stand pipe....the water is actually siphoning out of the washer. Do not "seal" the drain hose to the house plumbing pipe, this will also allow the water to be siphoned out.

Water Drains out as fast as it is filling


You have too much of the drain hose inside the drain line causing the water to siphen out as its coming in. Pull some of the drain hose out and secure the hose. There should only be about 8 inches or so of the hose inside the pipe.
