Water draining as it is filling the drum

My washer sometimes drains as it is filling. Sometimes it does it on the wash cycle or it may do it on the rinse cycle. I unplugged it last night as to 'reset' it. It seemed to work. It only happens cold

The drain hose is not high enough and it is siphoning the water out. Get the highest point of the drain hose above the water level in the washer.

Washer just shuts down


If the washer is turning off mid cycle then the problem most likely has something to do with the draining or the filling.

First check the drain hose is not to far down the standpipe. If it is to far down then the water might siphon out during fill. The water would fill and drain at the same time. One cycle I would like you to try is the "Rinse Only" cycle. This is a simple, short cycle that should just fill once, drain and spin. If the washer will do this then the major components are most likely okay.

Make sure the water drains out and let me know if the drain pump is the source of the noise you hear.

Water won't fill


it's syphoning caused by the drain hose in the stand pipe (wall) too far.
pull the drain hose out and stick in 6 inches only and secure to one of the fill hoses so it does not go back down too far. This will solve your problem

Water Everywhere


Look for loose, cracked, pinched, broken hoses to and from the water pump or leaks from the water pump itself. The outer drum could have a rust-through that leaks. This can be repaired with epoxy, but the inner drum must be removed to access it. The cabinet top is opened by using a putty knife or similar tool to push straight back under each front corner which releases a spring latch. Sometimes, the drain hose outlet is pushed from the house drain by high water flow. Tie the hose to the drain with tape or cord. Fill the tub with water, then stop the cycle and watch for leaks.

I have a Zanussi WDA1055W washer/dryer. I never


the water should only be filling up to approc 2in above the drum bottom...........look inside when its filling..........if its filling to nearly the bottom of the door you either have a faulty pressure switch or grit/dirt in the internal filter.......as a result the machine will not spin if there is too much weight in the drum

Incomplete wash cycle.


It sounds as if you have something acting as a flap causing the restriction. You should take the hose that leads from the tub to the pump off and see if there is anything just inside the tub. I have noticed that alot times you could have a coin that blocks the opening. You may have to remove the inner tub to remove anything in there

Washer sometimes drains durring the rince cycle


Ave, sounds like you have a siphoning problem. Check your drain hose and make sure there is a gap to break the siphon. Sometimes I find the drain hose shoved too far down the drain causing this problem. Another thing you might want to check is the drain itself. Is the drain water backing up causing the drain hose to be submerged after the initial drain? Catriver..post back.
