Check and see if the height of your drain is right. Sometimes if the drain is too low, it will cause the water to just flow right out of the machine. Check out the attached photo. Hope this helps and best wishes.

Water keeps filling but will not start cycle.


The top load washer utilizes a pressure switch attached to a clear plastic hose. If the water fills the tub but will not stop filling you will need to remove the top panel and inspect the hose for obstructions. You may need to disconnect the tube flush it clean and make sure no foreign debris are in the connector on the pressure switch. If the tub will over fill, you may need to replace the pressure switch. If the water will not fill the tub and the water continues to run you need to check the drain pump. Is water exiting through the drain hose? If so the drain pump could be the problem.

Roper washer leaks when filling


It's in the drain hose somewhere,during the fill the water gets as deep in the drain hose as it does in the washer,during the wash the pump runs in reverse keeping the water level in the hose low,during the drain the hose is filled again.
Prop the washer up in front on a couple bricks or boards,start putting in water until it starts to leak and take a peak under the 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.

My washer will not spin and can only fill tub on small loads cause water will run out


does the water keep running and it keeps draining the water? if so your drain hose needs to be higher than the highest water level in the tub or it will drain as it fills.

Washer will not fill up with water...runs right back out of drain tube


Make sure the drain pipe is at least 34 inches above to bottom of the washer and that it is not sealed at that point. This will prevent siphoning.

The water keeps running and it does not fill up.


If there is no water on the floor, it would have to be that the water entering the washer is going through the drain tube because it is too low, or for some odd reason the drain pump could actually be running, pumping out the water as its entering the washer. If there is water on the floor, there could be a leak anywhere along the drain tubing, the drain pump itself, or even the drum/basket seal.

Washer keeps draining


Sounds like you may have a siphoning problem. The following link explains:

Double check your installation and drain hose placement. You need to ensure you have an air gap to break the suction caused by the drain line. In the event that this is not a simple siphoning issue, please let me know if you require additional assistance. I hope this helps you.

Washer won't fill


On the drain valve there must be some dirt that does not let the valve close or the valve must be defective and needs to be replaced. By the way you did not mention the make of the washer.
