Re: w205kw washer

Check to see how much drain line is in the stand pipe in the wall. there should only be about a foot of drain hose in the pipe any more that that will cause a syphon efect that will suck out any water that goes in. also, the stand piper in the wall bhind washer must be as tall as the washer itself.

Fills Constantly

check the drain hose. Is it in the drain below the fill line of the washer?
In other words -- the drain line should be above the level of the washer lid top and in the line about 4-6 inches

Washer doesn't fill with water and begin wash cycle. I can hear it instantly draining out rather than fill, and has ran my well dry. We replaced the water pump a month ago, and it washed a few loads of...

Sounds like siphoning. This can happen if your drain pipe is too low and you run the drain hose right into it, or if there isn't any kind of air gap between the drain hose and pipe. Usually it shows up when trying to fill for the rinse cycle - it drains as fast as it fills. Or it might not fill at all. Order a "siphon break kit". They're cheap and easy to install

Kenmore 90 Series Heavy Duty Top Load Washer Model 110.28922790 water fills in tub and it's draining at the same time. Won't go through the normal cycle just keeps filling and draining. Any help...

You may have a condition known as "siphoning". This is caused by the drain hose not being high enough off the floor, or not having a proper air gap at the standpipe in order to drain properly. This creates a suction and the washer will constantly drain as it tries to fill. The following link explains:

In the majority of the cases, this problem is attributed to improper installation, rather than an actual problem with the washer. If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

My maytag washer, will not fill w/waterit runs in

Check your drain hose. It only goes into the drain stand pipe from 4 to 6 inches. Insertion any further will creat a siphon and constantly drain the tub. The stand pipe needs to be at least 36 inches from the floor.

Washer filling over and over

Check the placement of your drain hose. This may be a simple issue of siphoning. The following link explains:

Make sure you have a sufficient air gap at the top of the drain stand pipe, and that the drain hose is not placed in the standpipe too deep. This can cause the water to constantly siphon out of the wash tub and the washer will continue to fill to try to maintain the water level.

Please let me know if you have questions, or if you require additional assistance. I hope this helps you.

Washer fills and drains repeatedly

Have a look at the routing of your drain hose. It sounds a bit as if: a. The highest point of the hose isn't high enough (you normally want to aim for about 3 feet off the ground) - so that water starts draining from the machine before it is finished filling. and b. There isn't an effective air break or anti-siphon valve where the drain hose goes into the domestic drainage system - so that once the machine starts to drain by itself, it continues until empty. A.
