My washing machine keeps filling with water


If the washer keeps filling up without overflowing onto the floor , then you have the drain hose too deep into the drain and it is siphoning, pull the drain hose back up from being so deep and have it only about 10 inches into the drain, tie it into place with a shoestring or wire tie.
Now if your problem is that the washer is overflowing onto the floor, then there is a clear rubber hose that has been disconnected from the washer, this is the diaphragm hose. Have a technician reattach it. It shuts the water off and starts the machine when its gets enough water, but it wont if the hose is disconnected. Mr Burk

Newer machines will eject the water so fast that older home plumbing may be too small to keep it from overflowing. We had no choice but to pay a plumber to install a larger drain to use the new HE washer I bought to replace my old one when the transmission went out. Then I had to fix the drywall after he ran new PVC to the larger drain further down the wall. I suggest asking how big of a hole they are going to make, and being prepared to fix that too.

You may have a drain line restriction causing it to back up. Pull the drain hose up about 6 inches and try it again. If it does overflow again, you will need to call a plumber to clear the drain line out in your plumbing.

Water overflow when tub is emptying during spin cycle


It sounds more like you have a drain problem that a machine problem. Try draining into the laundry tub and check that the tub drains quickly enough. If not, you have a plumbing problem...Good luck...Nomess

When draining water overflows out of drain in wall?


Pick up a drain auger at your local hardware store or plumbing supply house. A general-purpose hand-operated one isn't expensive. Run it down the drain and it should clear out the clog that is causing the backup. It's likely just lint that's builtup, unless someone is missing a sock.

Blocked sink maybe equalls non spin or drain of washer


It depends on where the sink is blocked, and how the washing machine plumbing is set up.

If the sink is blocked in the p-trap under the sink, and the washing machine does not drain to that trap, then it's a separate problem.

That being said, if this is in fact the way the washing machine is plumbed, then it indicates that there is not an air gap between the washing machine hose and the drain. There must be an air gap or the washer will likely not drain, regardless of how it is plumbed to the sink or not.

Reply back with further information, or if you need clarification. But yes, the sink being plugged could be the cause of the washer problem, or may just be coincidental and not have anything to do with it.

Water overflowing from drain pipe


The problem with the new washing machines, is that they dump 20-22 gallons of water in 4-5 seconds. This amount is far more than the garden hose test will submit the drain to. Here are a number of solutions, I hope that one of these will help you.

#1 As mentioned above, you can restrict the flow of the drain pipe. I recommend a 3/4" x 6" brass nipple, or a 1/2" x 6" brass nipple, depending on your specific situation. The brass nipple will not corrode like a galvanized nipple.

#2 There is also a rubber cap that you attach to the drain pipe that fits around the drain hose tightly.

#3 Some situations might require that you have to raise your drain pipe. It is recommended that it be at least 36". This allows for gravity to assist the drain.

#4 Some situations will require that the drain pipe be increase in diameter. Older plumbing applications were installed using 1 1/2" piping. With the newer washing machine discharge volume, the 1 1/2" pipes will not support the discharge. Your drain line will need to be changed to 2". This option will be one of the more costly fixes, depending on the amount of line that needs to be changed.

#5 Some plumbing installations installed without a p-trap will need to be changed. The p-trap keeps sewer gas from coming back into the house. It also allows for a smooth transition into the drain line. Any restrictions in the drain line (i.e. ells, tees,) will cause the soap in the gray water to foam up which will cause the drain line to slowly back up.

I hope these solutinons help.
