Sitting water in washing machine (not immediately after use)

Hi, my name is John, and I have a washing machine problem
I often get sitting water in my washing machine. It seems to drain fully after use but then a few days later it appears. Is this likely to come from inside the washer? If so is there anything I can do? I thought some waste water from the kitchen sink or dishwasher could go back down the washing machine waste causing the water to get back into the machine. Is this possible?

If it is dirty water then it sounds like it's coming from the sink if washing machine waste is plumbed to the sink make sure washing machine waste pipe is higher than the sink waste outlet if it is clean water then a new water valve is what's needed

What's your question?defy toploader drain motor keeps running as soon as power switched on!!


Hi some machines do this to empty any water that may have been sitting in the bottom of your washing machine and the water has went stagnant. It should stop when you start a new washing cycle if it does not you will have to have your machine looked as it would just be draining the water as it goes in.

Why is there water sitting in my aquarius ultimate washing machine


Check the pump is not jammed by a hair grip or other debris. There is usually an access panel for this task but beware, it will empty the machine all over the floor when you do this. Drag it somewhere of have towels ready. Look in your user handbook for the pump access.

My affinity front load washing machine stopped mid-cycle. The door won't lock so it won't run and it has water sitting in it. Is there anything we can try before calling a repair man?


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
There is likely to be a problem with either the door solenoid/lock or the 'door closed' sensor. Sorry but both require a service engineer's attention I suggest ;-0(
If this has assisted and/or clarified the situation for you please consider a 4 thumbs up on our rating.
Thanks and good luck!

WIXL 125 the rubber seal around the door has mould at the bottom where thre liitle hole is. It has stained and there is water sitting around the area. Can we replace the rubber and why has this...


Yes, the seal can be replaced, and the reason for the mould is that you are doing too many low temperature washes.
You should periodically do a max high temp wash to help keep the seal clean and stop it from smelling.

My washer wont hold water


Hi

Make sure your drain hose is not sitting on the floor.

You need to make sure the drain hose goes up to the hight of the tank and then back down to the drain.

If the hose is sitting low, then gravity will just drain the water out.

Let me know if this is not the case and I will dry and diagnose if there is a nother problem.
