Water leaking out bottom of drum. Drum does not fill up all the way and starts leaking close to halfway of filling


Contact a professional so they can properly and accurately diagnose the unit for repairs. Sounds like you have a leak in the drain lines, or the water valve.

WASHER FILLS UP ABOUT HALFWAY WITH WATER THEN IT DRAINS OUT WHILE WATER IS STILL TRYING TO FILL. GOES THROUGH THE REST OF THE CYCLE LIKE THAT


One of two things to check should solve your problem.
  1. Check to make sure that SOME part of your washer's drain hose is looped higher than the flat top of the washer.
  2. Check to ensure that the end of the drain hose is not stuck too far into the house drain to create siphoning of the water in the tub.
Both of these can be eliminated as the problem by pulling the washer hose from the drain and aiming it into the tub of the washer by lifting the lid or into a tall trash can higher than the lid of the machine. If the machine works when doing that then ONE of the above problems is your cause.

Good Luck

Check your washer drain line for a possible siphoning condition. The following link explains:

Washer will only fill halfway


hello, 1 possable problem a pretty common problem and the solution is blindingly simple. It’s caused by the drain hose siphoning water out of the washer tub. There are two common causes for siphoning and I’ll explain both of them below.


drain-min.jpgOne cause for siphoning is simply that the drain hose discharge is below the fill level of the washer tub. This picture shows the minimum drain height needed to avoid siphoning.
Another common cause for siphoning is not having an air break between the drain hose and the drain stand pipe. Usually, this isn’t a problem since the drain hose diameter is usually much smaller than the diameter of the drain stand pipe. But sometimes folks will inadvertently remove the air break by duct taping the drain hose to the stand pipe. They might do this because the drain hose keeps popping out of the stand pipe when the washer pumps out the tub. Other times, the drain hose might fit into the stand pipe with a tight interference fit.also check your water inlet valve filter/screen make sure its not clogged.

Washer continuously filling/emptying


Your drain hose from the washer is in your household drain line too far, should not be any further in the drain line than 7 inches
