Water level drops during wash/rinse cycle

When I use the super water level on the machine, the water level drops during the wash/rinse cycle causing the machine to stop washing and refill back to the super level. I find that the problem only occurs with the super water level. I am not sure what causes the problem I have checked the drain hose that drains directly into the drain pipe. The water is leaking out the machine somehow causing the machine to get below the water level and cause it to refill again.

Re: water level drops during wash/rinse cycle

Check the exit hose behind, it should be at least 3 feet from ground level, and not too deep into the wall stand-pipe. You will find a level mark behind the machine......check this out.

Your pump pumps this water OVER this height.

I bought a brand new Hotpoint washer, model #HSWP1000M3WW. The water level for super size load during wash seems high enough. But the water level for the rinse is about a third of the super wash level. ...

I would check with the vendor that sold you the unit and see what they have to say or send an email to the Contact Us link on their website and ask. I am guessing no mention of the in your owners manual?

Water runs out of soap box during rinse cycle

Hi there, given this a lot of thought. I had same problem. Could be that you are in a hard water area. Soap is not dissolving properly and building up in the rubber tube between soap box and drum. How I resolved this. Turn off power remove top cover of washing machine and massage the rubber pipe between soap box and drum to soften and cause undissolved saoa to drop into drum. This should rectify problem. Also consider using every month some descaler powder called Descaler cheapest from Axxxxn best wishes.

After working well for six months, my washer now expels water at random points during the wash and rinse cycles.

Check inside the fill hose for debris. There is a screen designed to block debris from getting inside the machine valve. If the screen builds up with debris the water slows down. Sounds like the water is filling too slow. Also the unit and/or the load may not be balanced causing it to stop and drain out. If it's okay then see what lights are blinking when these events occur and post here.

Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly

There is a water level pressure switch inside the top panel that has 3 wires on it and a vacuum line. That pressure switch controls the water inlet valve functions via the timer.
If by chance the pressure sensing line is getting hydraulically locked with water due to some form of obstruction it can cause the symptom you describe.

This pressure switch also controls the start of the spin once the water level has dropped (prevents the wash tub from being a water brake and damaging the motor clutch)

If the water level pressure switch is working normally then the only thing left is the timer.

You can do your own testing of the water level presure switch with an external vacuum hose (3 feet in length) connected in place of the machine hose. (DO NOT drop the machine hose when you disconnect it!)

1. place timer on wash and start filling. LID CLOSED
a. Force air orally into the external line
1) Result fill stops agitation begins

2. place timer in spin LID CLOSED and force air into external line until the pressure switch clicks.
a. START SPIN CYCLE NOW and listen for water pump out
b. release pressure on external air line
1) result tub starts spinning

If it passes the above tests your looking at a timer problem causing your no rinse situation.

Thanks for using FixYa!
