Make sure that the drain is within the height requirements. You stated that you just moved the washer and you should check out how the drain is configured. If the drain is too low, then the water will just run straight out of the washer. I will attach a photo for reference. Hope this helped and best wishes.

    I realize that you said the drain is fine, and I may be wrong, but this is a common problem, especially after changing the location of the washer. If this is not a contributing factor, then let me know and I will look at other areas. Thanks and best wishes.

    The drain hose must be able go get air in order to prevent setting up a siphon action. If your drain hose is taped to the plumbing pipe, or fits in too tight, it will siphon. The drain hose must just drop into the plumbing pipe. If it is impossible to give the drain hose air at the plumbing pipe, use a siphon break in your drain hose. This is another area that you might want to take a look at. It is usually either drain height or a syphoning condition that causes the problem that you describe. Really sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.

Nd error code, what does this mean


ND stands for No Drain.
It means that either your drain is plugged, the piping inside your washer to the drain pump is plugged, your pump is damaged, your control panel is damaged or a combination of the above.
If you can hear your drain pump operating, you should check for blocked piping. If you have water in the washer, unhook your washer hose from the back of the washer and lower down to the floor to see if water drains from your washer. If little water runs out there is a good chance that the hoses inside your washer are plugged with something. If water runs out freely, then there is a problem with your pump that will not allow it to pump water up to your drain hookup.

Electrolux dishwasher won't drain. Not a clog in the outlet hose or drain pipe.


The drain hose on a washing machinemag-glass_10x10.gif connects the drain pump to a stand pipe, a U-pipe under the sink, or another place for draining dirty water into the sewer. If your washer won't drain properly, the problem is sometimes an object blocking the drain hose, like a pair of underpants, a child's sock, or pieces of something that broke up in the washer.
  1. Unplug the washer and put the plug on top of the machine to keep it out of any spilled water.
  2. Step 2 Take any wet clothes out of the washer and bail the water out of the drum with the bucket. The washer may be too heavy to move if it's full of water and wet clothing.
  3. Step 3 Pull the washer out from the wall enough for you to get behind it.
  4. Step 4 Remove the plate from the back of the washer by taking out all the screws. Different brands and models of washers vary in how many screws hold on the back plate, and not all models require removing the plate to get to the pump where the hose is attached.
  5. Step 5 Locate the drain hose. Of the three hoses coming out of the back of the washer, the drain hose is the largest in diameter and is attached to a drain pipe instead of a faucet.
  6. Step 6 Check the drain hose for kinks and bends. These are often the cause of a blocked or slow-running drain hose.
  7. Step 7 Remove the drain hose from the washer by detaching it from the drain pump. You will need a screwdriver or a slide-lock wrench to open the clasp that holds the hose to the pump, depending on what type of clasp it is.
  8. Step 8 Keep the bucket nearby to catch any water that comes out of the drain pump when you remove the hose.
  9. Step 9 Remove the other end of the house from the pipe it drains into.
  10. Step 10 Bend the clothes hanger open so you can use it to poke inside the hose. Push or pull out the material that's causing the blockage.
  11. Step 11 Replace the hose and run the washer to check if it's clear.

Water seeping back in washer after load is done?


Very possible your household drain pipe is almost the same size as the washers drain pipe. The house hold pipe should be approximately twice the diameter so as to allow equalising air in while water is being expelled from the washer. If at any time there is water flowback, it wont be forced into the washer pipe as it will now have an air gap.

Amana washer machine will not hold water. The drain hose is fine. What esle could be wrong?


The drain hose could be stuck too far down the drain pipe allowing it to siphon the water out.Also if it seals too tight into the drain pipe it will siphon the water out.

Washer less than a year old. Top loading. Will


Have you moved recently, or moved the washer for any reason?

Two things can usually cause that.

First, Some part of the drain hose must always be higher than the highest possible water level in the machine. Remember that water flows downhill. If all the hose is lower then the highest possible water level the machine can never fill since water will drain out hose. So, raise the hose higher than the flat top of the washer and try again.

2A, Inserting the drain hose too far into the house drain. or 2B, sealing out ALL air in the drain line by using a hose too tight in the drain pipe or taping the drain pipe tightly with the drain hose in it can both create a vacuum in the drain line which will actually **** out all the water in the tub. This can be tested by pulling the drain all the way out and aiming it into the tub as you try it. Good Luck.

My drain pipe for my washer doesn't drain the water fast enough.


No, but you can try snaking the drain or use something stonger like muratic or sulfuric acid. You may also want to check the venting on this drain.

the drain pipe in the wall needs to be as tall as the cabnet of the washer. if it is the see how much hose is going into the drain pipe. should only be about 9 to 12 inches into the pipe. any more than that will cause a syphon and suck the water out as it fills

Washer Will Not Hold Water


What height is mentioned in your manual for your drain pipe (the outlet pipe for your machine) There should be a height (before u bend it downwards into the drain) or the water will just flow out........... And do not over-load your washer.
