Question about Maytag LSE7806A Top Load Stacked Washer/Dryer
The water continues to fill and drain It appears to be a syphoning problem how do i repair this?
Double check your drain hose and make sure it is not shoved down into the standpipe too far. If the drain hose is resting in the trap area of the line it will siphon. In addtion, if the top of the standpipe is sealed off and does not provide an air gap for the drain line, it will also siphon. It is common for consumers to want to push the drain line down into the standpipe to avoid overflows when the washer drains. This, in fact, causes more harm than good. It is also common for consumers to want to seal the top of the standpipe to prevent odors from the drain line from creeping back into the house. This also is more harmful than good. The drain line should only rest in the standpipe about 4 to 6 inches from the top with enough space between the hose and the perimeter of the pipe to allow for an air gap. It's a simple problem to fix if this is the case. It also beats having to pay a repair guy to come out and correct something you could have diagnosed yourself. Post back with comments/questions if you need further assistance. If it not a simple drain hose issue, I could give further advice on what may be a cure for your problem.
