Question about Whirlpool Calypso GVW9959K Top Load Washer
The top loading fully automatic machine is not able to store any water.The water keeps draining out from the drain pipe.The machine is not taking any load.
The fix for this is very simple. But you are not alone here this is a common problem that I need to write a tip about...
If the water is going right through then either one of two things is happening. Either the hose is not going up high enough before it goes back down into the pipe, or the hose end is stuck into the water in the pipe and the result is that the water then can siphon out.
First thing to check is that the hose is going up to a point at least as high as the top of your washing machine before it turns and goes back down into the washer.
Next, check that the water level in the pipe is not backed up so that the end of the pipe is in the water. There needs to be an air gap so that you break the vacuum on the hose after the washing machine is done pumping out. If this does not happen the water going in will just get siphoned roght out again...
Checking these two things will solve your problem and you will be happy and washing again!!
