Water coming out of hose at home plumbing

Just moved to a duplex, on the first load, drain cycle, water started shooting out the hose where it enters the house plumbing. The drain will not carry the water away fast enough when machine starts drain cycle. Is there a way to slow water being pumped out of machine? Hose has proper end and water shoots out "vent slots" at full stream. If I turn the machine off and on I can get it to drain.

Hello.Maybe the drain is blocked.it sounds like your machine is working ok to me,if you can hang the hose over the edge of a laundry tub & make sure the plug is out,see if the water drains away,otherwise it sounds like a plumbing problem not the machine.it started only after you moved houses so more likely the plumbing.hope i helped.

It sounds like your drain is clooged with lint. Have your drain snaked out and everything should be fine

My dishwsaher wont drain water


Two things to consider....clean water or dirty water?

Clean water usually indicates the fill valve is not shutting off all the way and the fill valve is "weeping" water in all the time = new fill valve time!!

Dirty water usually is not a dishwasher problem but more of a plumbing issue. Often the sink drain that carries the sinks water outside is not fast enough and some of this sink water is backing up into the drain hose and filling up the dishwasher through the drain hose. The drain from the sink to outside needs attention as this type of a problem indicates a slow house drain for that sink.

The dishwasher drain line should be clamped to the top underneath part of the counter before entering the sink drain plumbing, this may help the water from coming back inside the dishwasher.

The problem is the drain hose is to low or to tight in the standpipe. The standpipe is your home plumbing. If it does not have an air gap around it, it will create a siphon effect. Here is a link with more info http://appliancehelponline.com/washerdrainsfills.html

If water remains in the drum after the drain cycle, the unit will not go into the spin cycle. There may be a couple of reasons for your problem.
Make sure the drain hose is raised above the machine hose outlet to create a siphon effect. The drain hose needs to have a loop in it to work correctly. You can tie a string around the hose and hook it on the water valve creating a loop in the hose. Raise the loop of the drain hose so the top of the loop height is at the center of the washer drum.

GE Profile top load washer purchased 2003 water comes out from under washer when spin and drain cycle on. this not mentioned in trouble shooting area. think it is water pump or whatelse can it be?


It has to be in the water exit path somewhere - is there a pump sump inspection? Is there a hose split? Likely the drain hose, or where it connects to the machine. Has the pump split open? Can you remove the machine cover and inspect it while it is doing a cycle so you can see where the water is coming from?

Frigidaire front load washer won't drain or spin


This often is a drain hose that is too low or a drain hose that has been pushed too far down inside the stand pipe....the water is actually siphoning out of the washer. Do not "seal" the drain hose to the house plumbing pipe, this will also allow the water to be siphoned out.

Whirlpool LHW0050PQ - Water wont empty or fill


This sounds like a plumbing problem. Lets see if we can isolate it. Turn the valves off behind the washer and remove them from the washer. Remove the washer drain hose from the stand pipe. Stuff one of the hoses into the now vacant drain line and turn the water on. Then do the other hose. Any noise? Now reconnect the fill hoses to the washer and reinstall the drain hose to its' place. Turn on the water valves at the wall, set the washer to a cold/cold cycle and start it up. Listen for noise. Now shut the machine off and set it for a hot/cold cycle and turn it on. Listen for noise. If you get no noise now, it's all good. If you're getting noise from just your hot water, your water heater is set too high and you have steam propagating in your plumbing. Your washer water valves (where the hoses connect to your machine) will only do this if you have low water pressure coming from the wall. Still, it'll be a plumbing problem.

Freezer before Rinse


you hav'nt said if it drains. the problem just may be that you have plumbed drain hose onto a spigot on the sink drain and spigot is blanked off

Washing machine


If your drain hose is laying flat on the floor it needs to be lifted higher than the top of your machine to allow the water to remain in the tub. If it is lifted then check the drain standpipe where the drain hose attaches to the plumbing and verify that it does not have an air tight seal if it does then make sure that there is a place for air to enter the drain right where the drain hose attaches to your house plumbing.
