Water runs out of it as soon as it starts going in


Water constantly running down the drain, and the washing machine repeatedly topping up with water, can be caused by faulty plumbing. The washing machine may get stuck on a wash, or rinse program, caught in a cycle of filling with water and losing it down the drain. When siphoning has started it can stick forever in this cycle.

Siphoning occurs when the end of the drain hose is lower than the level of the water inside the washing machine. It's exactly the same principal as siphoning beer out of a barrel into bottles or siphoning petrol from a tank. If the end of the drain hose is very low, then water can siphon out as soon as it enters the washing machine. If it's just slightly lower than it should be, then siphoning is usually triggered when the washing machine first pumps water out or even just occasionally.

This fault most often occurs when the washing machine has been moved out for cleaning or relocated in a new house etc. It can also occur if a drain hoses stand pipe isn't properly secured to the wall and falls over at an angle.

The drain hose should also not be pushed down too far down into the waste water pipe, which can cause siphoning just the same as if the stand pipe is too low. It needs to go just far enough in to prevent it falling out but it will fall out if not secured properly with a crook or tape. If the stand pipe that the drain hose is being pushed into is too low, then it may need raising. It could have fallen through the floor boards in which case you can gently raise it and secure it to the wall with proper brackets. If it was just installed too short, you can add a small extension piece.

Water continues to run, never fills and continue the washing cycle


If I understand you correctly you are saying that a good amount of water will go into the tub but it never get full enough to start the wash cycle.? Obviously its not leaking all the water out or you would see it.. I know this may sound strange but check to see how far down your drain hose goes into the wall drain,I have had many that do this same thing and the hose from the washer was to far down into the wall drain and the water would SIPHON OUT OF THE TUB FASTER THAN THE WATER COULD GO IN hopefully this is you problem secure the hose so only about 6 inches is in the wall drain.. Hope this was it Good Luck

Kenmore dishwasher water will not stay in there


It sounds like you have a drain hose problem. The drain hose needs to have a rise in it. If it is going down hill or to a drain that is lower than the tub it can drain as fast as it fills.

Sticks on drain cycle and cannot be stopped


Water constantly running down the drain, and the washing machine repeatedly topping up with water, can be caused by faulty plumbing. The washing machine may get stuck on a wash, or rinse program, caught in a cycle of filling with water and losing it down the drain. When siphoning has started it can stick forever in this cycle. NOTE: These symptoms can also be caused by totally different faults. Indesit washing machines (and some others) for example can force the washing machine into a constant cycle of filling with cold water and pumping the water away if it thinks the washing machine is overheating (possible faulty thermistor). The main difference is that in this scenario, the water is being pumped down the drain and the water pump can be heard running, whereas in siphoning, the water is just running down the drain through gravity.
Siphoning occurs when the end of the drain hose is lower than the level of the water inside the washing machine. It's exactly the same principal as siphoning beer out of a barrel into bottles or siphoning petrol from a tank. If the end of the drain hose is very low, then water can siphon out as soon as it enters the washing machine. If it's just slightly lower than it should be, then siphoning is usually triggered when the washing machine first pumps water out or even just occasionally.
This fault most often occurs when the washing machine has been moved out for cleaning or relocated in a new house etc. It can also occur if a drain hoses stand pipe isn't properly secured to the wall and falls over at an angle.
The drain hose should also not be pushed down too far down into the waste water pipe, which can cause siphoning just the same as if the stand pipe is too low. It needs to go just far enough in to prevent it falling out but it will fall out if not secured properly with a crook or tape. If the stand pipe that the drain hose is being pushed into is too low, then it may need raising. It could have fallen through the floor boards in which case you can gently raise it and secure it to the wall with proper brackets. If it was just installed too short, you can add a small extension piece.
You should ensure that the plastic crook supplied with the washing machine is fitted to the end of the drain hose. This forces it into a shepherd's hook. The length of drain hose sticking out of the crook should be about 4 or 5 inches. If the plastic crook is missing, I tape the drain hose in.
You could have a bad drain pump solenoid.

Wash tub does not fill - water continues to run but does not fill


Be sure that the drain hose is routed HIGHER than the console of the washer. There is no drain valve, but rather physics that keeps water in the machine..

Take the drain hose out of the drain pipe and put it into a sink to test the machine

If that works make sure that the drain hose is being allowed to breath (ie let air into the main drain pipe so that the machine does not set up a syphon).

A used washer I am trying to hook up . . I have the drain hose going into the floor drain. The washer fills while at the same time draining. So it never really fills enough.


Washing machines need to be drained into a standpipe. This is a drain that is about 36" off the floor. The drain line on your washer will work fine if you have it installed in a standpipe.
by putting it down into a floor drain, you're not going to allow the machine to fill. The stand pipe will allow your machine to fill and still pump the water out during spin cycle.

Make sure there's a drain hose with a hook on the top.
