Your drain hose is stuffed into the drain pipe too far , or taped to the drain pipe (possibly to try to stop the drain from backing up ) . Your sewer system is causing a syphon effect to the washer , causing drain as it fills . You can get a syphon break , which attaches to the drain hose , to stop this problem . Any appliance store or maybe even Home Depot , will have this part .

My moms pipes froze to her washing machine. They thawed and the machine filled with water but they won't wash. She can hear a buzzing sound like the machine is trying to wash the clothes but nothi


Yes , I think the valves also must have jammed in the process and when the hot water filled up in due course it must have released.
It is best to switch off water supply to the machine in such times.

WASHER WON'T FILL WATER


Check to be sure the drain line is higher that the tub of the washer. You have a siphon going on the drain.

Washing machine won't fill. i filled it by hand with water, it won't agitate either, only spins.


The inlet solenoid is probably bad. And it won't agitate unless it fills and stops filling automatically.

Washing machine won't turn on


OK, you have a model with a mechanical timer. Try advancing the timer to the spin portion of the cycle and seeing if it will run there. If yes, problem is most likely with your water fill valve. If no, problem is most likely a timer issue.

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
