My washer keeps draining water during the fill cycle. It pumps the water out as fast as the water is going into the tub. This only happens on the normal cycle-other cycles work OK.


it could be the programer at fault or,,,there is a small pipe from the bottom of the tub that gos to a censor at the top of the washer its the over fill censor pull off the pipe from the censor at the top and blow down it if there is any yuck in it this should clear it out and it may then work ok

Water leaked from bottom of washer


Check the pump right where the motor shaft goes into it. The pump seal can leak right there and the water drips directly onto the floor. It will continue to run out after the cycle till the remaining water drains out of the tub and drain hose.

Why does my washing machine have 2 drain outlets?


This is a water saver or previously known as a suds saver model. The bottom one is the drain. The top one would go to a suds tub. If you set the machine on save, the wash water is pumped out of the top hose into the holding sink next to the washer. The rinse water goes out the bottom hose to the drain. The next cycle you could set the washer to the very beginning of the main wash cycle and the washer would pump the water from the tub back into the washer to be used as wash water for the second load of laundry. Yea, used water. But the first load would be lightly soiled stuff, and the next load would be old barn clothes or play clothes. It was designed to save water (about 65 gallons used for 2 loads vs. 90 gallons) and soap. (now, front load machines with larger tubs would use as little as 25 gallons for two loads.) Just hook up the bottom hose to the drain. Leave the save / drain switch set to drain and you'll be fine. To be extra safe (in case the switch was accidentally set to save) disconnect the wires at the solenoid where the drain hose splits into two at the back bottom of the washer. (right where the hoses exit the machine.)

Will not hold water during initial cycle


The drain hose needs to be lifted above the high fill level in washer.The easiest way to fix this is take the drain hose (if your drain hose starts from the bottom of machine and goes up)tie or strap it to the back of the washer so it cant sag or drop down and start syphoning the water.Remember the washer will drain out the water if the drain hose is lower than the amount of water in the tub.Thats why your making sure by tieing the drain hose to the highest point before it makes it way to the drain .
