Constantly runs the drain pump when started


You don't list the make or model or age but has it always done this? Some models will automatically run the drain pump first as part of their programming before starting the actual cycle. Then, the unit will sense the load, start adding water steadily until the correct amount is reached(based on sensed load size), then wash. However, if the drain pump is being initiated at the wrong time, or stays on and no water is able to stay in the tub, there could be a problem with the water level sensor--it thinks water is already in the tub. This usually happens from a blocked water sensor tube(a plastic tube that is connected from the bottom of the washer tub to the water level sensor). Or, the problem might be with the main washer control board.

Sometimes when I turn the washer on; it continues to run the water without filling the bowl. Seems like the washer thinks its in rinse mode.


Check your drain the drain hose must be higher that the tub or it will run down the drain.
It must be going down the drain or you would have water all over the floor If the water is coming in it has to go somwhere. In rinse cycle it should stay in the tub until the timer kicks it into drain and spin.

Loud noise during spin cycle (Bravos washer) was told the bearing is pressed into the tub. Looking at parts list they show the "basket" and the "tub outer". Is the bearing in the "tub outer"?


Similar issue, lot of racket on final spin and was told only option was a $280 whole tub assembly. Dissasembled tub and removed bearings from shaft. Took to local bearing warehouse and got replacements for <$25. The small one was a Nachi Quest 6005-2NSE9 and the large one was 6006-2NSE9. It took me @ 4-6 hrs in total and had to work to get top bearing onto shaft but much more attractive option than replacement or whole tub. Extremely irritated with Maytag and will NOT give them another dime. A appliance less than 1.5 yr old should not have these issues - cheaply made. Is a shame as Maytag used to mean something, it meant quality but not anymore.

Washing Machine Keeps Filling with Water through Detergent dispen


This machine has a water valve that works on vaccuum from the tub. You will see a small clear hose that runs from the side of the tub up to this valve. This valve is adjustable to change the water level in the tub to desired setting on some machines, but if it goes bad, it will not shut off, thus overflowing the tub. Find this valve and replace it if adjustment does not work.

Water will not stay filled in tub on rinse cycle


It sounds like a siphon issue.
Check that the drain hose does a high loop before it goes into the drain pipe. (ie. drain hose loops above the water level inside the tub). Make sure the drain hose is not pushed too far down into the drain pipe. Also if the drain hose is sealed to the drain pipe this will create an airlock and a siphon will occur, allow air to enter between drain hose and drain pipe connection.
This should help you but if there is still a problem let me know and I'll try to assist you further.
Good luck!

Washer is a top load set it hot water and starts with hot and then will go cold willnot stay on hot G E Profile ,model wwa8350g


most new washers sense water temp and will try to adj final tub water temp by alternately running cold or hot as needed ..most hot settings are not faucet temp but a predetermined temp so if your hot water is 140 degrees coming in the control will switch the cold on to bring final tub water temp down to preset ..which could be as low as 100 degrees the industry's way of energy conservation

hi friend,
If your washer won't drain, check these:

It spins, but doesn't pump
It doesn't spin or pump
It pumps, but the water returns
It spins, but doesn't pump
If your washer spins but doesn't pump the water out, the drain line is probably clogged. In many
washers, a small sock or other piece of clothing can get between the clothes tub and the outer tub
that holds the water. If the clothing gets between the tubs, it may then get into the drain hose that's
attached to the pump--or even into the pump itself. If it's in the pump, you need to remove the
hoses
from the pump and pull the item out.

To remove the sock from the outer tub port, open the washer's main access panel and remove the
large-diameter rubber hose that connects the pump to the bottom of the outer tub. Then, using
needle-nose pliers, try to grab and remove the clothing through the port.

Sometimes you can't remove the stuck clothing from below. Then you have to remove the agitator,
top of the outer drum shield, and inner clothes tub. This isn't easy to do--and you may need special tools--so you might
be happier getting a qualified appliance repair technician to do the job.

If the drain line isn't plugged, the problem may be with your pump. Even if the pump appears to be
turning, the internal impeller may be broken. If so, you need to replace the pump.

It doesn't spin or pump
If your washer doesn't spin or pump water out but the motor is running, your washer probably
has a frozen pump pulley. If so, you need to replace the pump. To check the pulley, remove the
pump from the washer and try to rotate the pulley manually. If it doesn't turn freely--if it's frozen
or stiff--replace it.

It pumps, but the water returns
If the water that pumps out of the machine goes back into the machine after the spin cycle, your
washer may be siphoning the water from a laundry tub that has a slow drain, back into the
washer. The usual remedy for this is to improve the draining of the laundry tub. (Is something stuck
in the drain?) Also, check for these problems:

* If the drain hose reaches more than about 4 inches into the laundry tub, cut off the excess.


* If your drain hose is lower than the washer's cabinet, install an air gap/siphon break assembly.
