Highly normal for top loader model washers of the old age since it is relative to the level of water being placed into the wash basket of the washer and only drains as the drain pump is being used

My maytag mtw5600tq1 washer won't hold water. Its


Hi,
Its sounds like you have a siphon going on, this happens when the drain hose it too low during fill and as the water enters the unit it exits through the drain hose. To stop this the drain hose needs to be higher than the tub itself, meaning: raise the drain hose behind the washer to about control panel area. This will or should stop the siphon effect and allow the water to remain in the tub. If the drain hose is low this siphon will start again.
I hope this helps

Kenmore Series 80 fills with water and won't stop filling until manually advancing the timer, does not agitate but will spin and drain.


Good day,
Sounds as if the water level switch is bad, or the hose to it has broken, come off or is plugged up at the base where it enters the tub.
Remove the 2 screws that hold the console in place. They are either at both ends front, both ends front but hidden by end caps that have to be un clipped, or lastly at the bottom back.
Pull slightly forward and rotate the console up from the front and away from you.
You will see the water level switch with a plastic hose pressed onto it. Remove the hose, and blow into it with the tube partially filled. You should hear it gurgle. If broken, the air will just escape, if plugged and you cannot get air thru it, it will have to be cleaned.
If everything checks O.K. with the hose, then the fill control (pressure switch) is bad, and needs replaced.

The agitation mode works thru the pressure switch, but the switch is bypassed in the pump out spin mode. That's why it performs as you described.

The washer starts to fill normally, then agitates very briefly, stops, and begins to fill again. When watching the water fill, the water level does not rise at all, and if you push the button in to stop...


It sounds like your drain hose is two low. If your drain hose is inserted into a drain pipe try extending the drain pipe to the same hight as the washing machine.

Washer will not fill up!


The water is siphoning out as it fills. Your drain hose is too low or has a air block. Remove the drain hose from the drain. Set the washer to fill. Hold the drain hose up higher than the washer. If it fills correctly and starts agitating,correct the drain hose problem.

Agitating to many times


Have you verified that you do not have a siphoning condition? The following link explains:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r587481-prevent_washer_siphoning

Please double check the installation and placement of your drain hose. If the top of the standpipe is sealed off, or if the drain hose is shoved too far down into the standpipe, this can create a vacuum. This can cause the washer to constantly siphon out of the wash tub on the fill cycle and the washer will continue to fill (as needed) to maintain the water level. In other words, what may appear to be a significant problem, can be something as simple as a simple placement issue with the drain hose.

If you have further questions, please let me know. If the diagnosis is not correct, please post back and also let me know, so that I may be able to assist you further. I hope this helps you.

No water




Let's start here:
Have you checked the incoming hoses? You can unscrew them and check the little filters for sand and dirt, etc. And make sure they are not twisted or squished and the water is turned all the way on. Before you disconnect the hoses have towels handy and turn the washer off, the water off and unplug the machine. Be sure to turn the water back on!


I hope the answer is this simple. Let me know.

Check to make sure your drain hose has a loop at least as high as washer top.  If the drain hose is not looped higher than tub water will continue to drain and it won't stop filling.  If it doesn'y reach the correct fill level it won't agitate.

Maytag Performa washer Waterlevel/agitator problem


CHECK your stand pipe hasn't fell over (the one the drain hose goes to when emptying)If not,Either the pressure switch is broke or there is a hole or split in the pressure switch rubber hose.This switch stops the water when it reaches required level.
