The drain line is probably clogged. Maybe that a sock or other piece of clothing get between the clothes tub and the outer tub that holds the water. In this case it may then get into the drain hose that's attached to the pump.Remove the hoses from the pump and pull the item out. In case it clean there, check the outer tub port- open the washer's main access panel and remove the large-diameter rubber hose that connects the pump to the bottom of the outer tub. Then,try to remove the clothing through the port.
Good luck !

Machine keeps filling up, replace pressure switch, still nohting, keeps filling up?


Hello dwl770 - If your washer won't stop filling up with water and overflows the tub, check for one of these problems:

1) Turn off the electricity to the washer. If the water *stopped* filling when power was disconnected, the problem would usually be in the control system of the machine. If the water still continues, then the plunger in the water valve is either stuck open or slow to close. Try turning the water faucets off and on a few times. This small joltmight unstick the water valve. If not, it will need replacing.

2) There could be a problem with the water level switch. Call in a professional.

3) There is a pressure switch hose that is attached to an air dome. This switch tells the washer that there is water in the tub and allows the agitator to start.

- Remove the control panel and you will notice a small hose. See if it popped off of the air dome. If it did, secure it with a zip tie.

If water flow continues, but drains out immediately, then raise the drain hose above the highest water level line of the tub. Do not seal the drain hose to the discharge pipe. This could cause a siphoning action.

My maytag mtw5600tq1 washer won't hold water. Its


Hi,
Its sounds like you have a siphon going on, this happens when the drain hose it too low during fill and as the water enters the unit it exits through the drain hose. To stop this the drain hose needs to be higher than the tub itself, meaning: raise the drain hose behind the washer to about control panel area. This will or should stop the siphon effect and allow the water to remain in the tub. If the drain hose is low this siphon will start again.
I hope this helps

GE Spacemaker Washer/Dryer. Model # DDPI380GAMWH. Water won't stop filling. It continues to fill during all cycles. Fills during agitation. Agitates inproperly. It agitates in short pulses as water...


Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. This sounds like a problem with the water level switch in the washer. It controls the amount of water entering the tub. It is probably defective. You may want tomake sure the switch is getting power first by testing the wires with a voltage meter.

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.

Frigidaire glws1233as1 water runs continually. seems like a valve is stuck open or something. water is draining as fast as it is filling up.


your drain hose or drain is too low causing water to siphon from the tub as fast as it runs in. raise or loop the drain hose higher than the highest level of the tub.

The water is going out the drain and cannot fill up the tub.


Check out the height of your drain. If the drain is too low, the water will drain right out of the tub. Check out the attached photo. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Water will not stay filled in tub on rinse cycle


It sounds like a siphon issue.
Check that the drain hose does a high loop before it goes into the drain pipe. (ie. drain hose loops above the water level inside the tub). Make sure the drain hose is not pushed too far down into the drain pipe. Also if the drain hose is sealed to the drain pipe this will create an airlock and a siphon will occur, allow air to enter between drain hose and drain pipe connection.
This should help you but if there is still a problem let me know and I'll try to assist you further.
Good luck!
