You have too much of the drain hose inside the drain line causing the water to siphen out as its coming in. Pull some of the drain hose out and secure the hose. There should only be about 8 inches or so of the hose inside the pipe.

My bravos top loader will not fill up with water. The water drains as fast as it is trying to fill up. As a result, the wash cycle never completes.


You must make sure the drain hose is above teh water level and not in the water in the "P" trap of the house drain. There must be air to prevent siphoning. The drain hose should not go more than about 12" down in the drain tube.

Whirlpool washer - tub drains while it fills.


Your drain is to low. Make sure that the drain that your discharge hose is going into is at least as high as the washer. If not the water will drain out as fast as you can fill it.

Daby dwm99w drains and fills water at the same time.


The outlet of the drain hose must be higher than the highest level of water in the tub. Otherwise, it just siphons through.

Whirlpool washer fills, begins to agitate, then drains


Water siphoning out the drain line
If the water is continues to fill and water is draining while it is filling or agitating, Check the height of the stand pipe. It should be about 36" above the floor. If the height is correct it may need to have an anti-siphoning valve installed into the drain line.

Shut the machine off with timer during this period and raise the drain hose. If the water continues to drain, you will need to install an anti-siphon kit.

Washer fills then drains


Daisy, check your drain hose going into the drain. It sounds like you have a siphoning problem. If the drain hose does not have a air gap the water filling will siphon right out. Check this first and post back, Catriver.
