    I have a whirlpool top loading washer and the same problem! It will fill and fill and fill and must be draining at the same time because it doesn't overflow and never moves on to agitate...could it be the water intake valve or the switch? HELP

Check that your outlet pipe rises above the stated height on the back of the machine (about 3/4 of the way up). If it is too low, it will siphon the water out of the drum. If you're not sure what height it should be at, raise the top of the pipe (ie where it bends back into the outflow pipe) above the top of the machine (if you have room) or as high as you can. It must be above the height of the drum.

Good Luck

I have an idea that it might be the waste pipe they are at ground level and gravity is forcing the water to exit beacause of this check to see if it is..

Also the hotpoint guy check your water pressure comming into the machine .. your fault code suggests that the water pressure is low.. disconnect the hot and cold pipe and check them to see if there is enough water pressure.. hotpoints are very prone to water pressure problems...


hope this helps if you need any other advice dont hessitate to ask.. ill try my best....

Problem with a hotpoint wmf760 aquarius + error code h20 coming up


You may have soap & grease in the pipe that leads to the pressure switch. Remove and flush through and/or replace. dry before refitting.
Thus constant high would give pump faults (thinks machine still contains water). Constant low may cause over filling. If you have a plug that suddenly moves, that can cause the above errors.

Your exit hose behind the machine has to go over a certain height before it goes into your wall standpipe or sink. The height is marfked behind your machine, approx 3 feet above ground level. The hose should put about 3 or 4 inches into the standpipe, & not fitted airtight. Post back later if the code stil comes up...........
