My White Westinghouse 833ES never stops filling, it seems like as water goes in, it is draining right out. Any ideas of what to check would be appreciated. Thank you.

you have to have the drain higher than the water level of the wahing machine, plus ther is no stopper for the water so if you have the drain hose connected directly to another hose and there is no air gap at the top it will just siphon out

Does the washer fill normally and just stop? Or, does the washer fill, go through a complete cycle, and just won't drain? There could be a couple of problems that cause a no drain issue. 1. FILL NORMALLY & STOPS, WILL NOT SPIN - This is usually a bad lid switch. If you open and close the lid, you should hear a "click", indicating the switch is working. 2. FILL NORMALLY, AGITATES, WILL NOT DRAIN - This could be a clogged drain pump, pinched hose, clogged rain line. Also, you need to make sure timer is advancing properly. If the timer never advances, the washer will fill, but won't go into agitate or spin. Let me know if this is helpful.
