Just hooked up and it won't keep water


I got this washer from my parents who had been using it for a month. It worked fine for them but I'm having a problem.

When I turn it on it starts to fill up with water but the water wont stay in the washer. It just drains when filling up? I don't know whats going on? Any help would be great. Thanks

Spin cycle works sometimes, lid switch is clicking and rest of washer cycle works fine. when spin cycle kicks in it works good, sometimes it just sits there.

Just because the lid switch is clicking does not mean it is working correctly although it is good your checking this because this is the most common issue on these when they fail to spin. You maight also have a bad pressure switch on the inside of the control panel. If youtake the panel off and pull it back there is a pressure switch located on the panen with a tube hooked to it, take the tube off and blow through it to make sure it is clear. This tube is hooked to the drum and it tell the washer what the water level is and if it thinks it still has water in it then it won't spin. I bet it is one of these two items causing your troubles.

Hi Steven. I'm sure other service providers have come up with their own methods of dealing with the same problem, many of which may work as well as mine, but I think that cutting off the last inch and a half of the hose at the tub side is the fastest "fix", followed by regular use of liquid bleach (a concentrated sulution every couple of months) to prevent the condition from re-occuring.

You might try using the clean washer cycle, works on mine. I use the full amount of bleach allowed. No more if I can just get that pesky beeping noise to stop...

6 months old. Now no water will fill drum! Works as normal but no water!

Hurlewan Your washer is still under manufacturer's warranty which is one full year. If it has Kenmore's name on it you do not need proof of purchase. The only thing you need is your mother-in-law's home phone number at time of purchase because Sears keeps all their records based on phone numbers. Good luck, Gendos post back....
