Question about Danby DWM99W Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Daby dwm99w drains and fills water at the same time.

It is not a full drain, but it drains fast enough to prevent the water level from going high enough. If you switch to a cycle/stage where it is supposed to drain, it drains a lot faster. So apparently the machine knows it shouldn't drain (at least at full force). I suspect this is a leak, but ... it's been a few hours today and I don't have a clue yet what the problem is ...

The outlet of the drain hose must be higher than the highest level of water in the tub. Otherwise, it just siphons through.

My bravos top loader will not fill up with water. The water drains as fast as it is trying to fill up. As a result, the wash cycle never completes.

You must make sure the drain hose is above teh water level and not in the water in the "P" trap of the house drain. There must be air to prevent siphoning. The drain hose should not go more than about 12" down in the drain tube.

My Danby washer always drain the water when it fill the water up on the 3 and 4 water level setting. So I can't wash clothing at all. Hope get answer soon.

The answer is the drain hose. It must be routed higher than the machine or water will always drain. There is no actual drain valve.

Kenmore Quietguard 2 dishwasher not filling.

There is a solenoid that keeps the water in the washer. It is either faulty or there is something preventing it from closing completely. If there is no power applied to the washer, does it then hold water?

Water sipps back in to the drum after the wash has finished

You need an air gap/ siphon break. Gravity is a strong thing. Most washing machines2_bing.gif have the pump at the lowest portion of a washer. They provide a drain hose with each washer. If the drain hose is not properly mounted according to shipping instructions, gravity will cause the water to flow out the machine as fast as it comes in. You must have the hose at least 30 inches above the floor to prevent this. A common question I see a lot is: Water goes out as fast as it goes in? Or it fills and starts to wash and then shuts down and fills a little more and then starts up and shuts down. This is the water draining out the machine as it begins the tumble action. The hose is not on the floor but it is still not high enough to stop the siphoning. Other causes of siphoning is cramming a drain hose down tightly into the drain. Some drains are so strong they will actually pull the water out the machine. To prevent this sometimes a tech will install an anti-siphoning device. Consult your owners manual.

Whirlpool washer - tub drains while it fills.

Your drain is to low. Make sure that the drain that your discharge hose is going into is at least as high as the washer. If not the water will drain out as fast as you can fill it.

My danby fills and immediately drains.

Hi, It sounds like the drain hose has dropped lower then the water level in the washer. Check and see if the hose end is as high as the top of the washer.
I hope this helps you.

Tub fills only 1/2 full but water keeps running as if the tub is not full. If the water level is set to 1/2 or less, tub fills 1/2 full and begins to cycle. The water is running into the tub but not...

Check the drain hose to make sure you have a high loop, ie. make sure the drain hose loops above the height of the washer lid before going to the drain pipe.
Also make sure the drain hose is not going too far down into the drain pipe.
You may be getting a siphon effect.

Washer continuously fills but drains at the same time during rinse cycle.

you have the drain pipe too low into tthe house drain pipe, raise the washers drain pipe up , you only need four inches down into the hous drain

also the house drain pipe needs to be as high as the lid of the machine before you put the washer drain tube into the house drain

you have a syphoning effect
