Question about Washing Machines

2 Answers

Washer continuously fills but drains at the same time during rinse cycle.

When washing medium or large loads, during the rinse cycle....water level will not get high enough to proceed to next step. After reaching a certain level (about 1/3 full), water level never gets any higher...yet continues to fill. Never overflows so must be draining at the same time. No issues when washing small loads. Must manually stop cycle in order to stop water flow.

You have the drain pipe too low into tthe house drain pipe, raise the washers drain pipe up , you only need four inches down into the hous drain

also the house drain pipe needs to be as high as the lid of the machine before you put the washer drain tube into the house drain

you have a syphoning effect

Fixum 1 is correct. I had this same problem and by trial and error found this to be the problem. I never thought that the syphoning effect could occur, but it does and can be costly if you aren't minitoring your washer (ie water usage).

Any suggestions to washing machine which works with irregular water supply?


all models have a water level sensor in them that you set according to the wash load you have
when you turn them on the water flows until the level set switches off the inlet tap and proceeds to wash
regardless of the water pressures and delivery, the wash will not proceed until the water level setting is reached
the problem that you face is that during the rinse cycle , there may not be enough water available to rinse within the rinse/ spin cycle

After working well for six months, my washer now expels water at random points during the wash and rinse cycles.


Check inside the fill hose for debris. There is a screen designed to block debris from getting inside the machine valve. If the screen builds up with debris the water slows down. Sounds like the water is filling too slow. Also the unit and/or the load may not be balanced causing it to stop and drain out. If it's okay then see what lights are blinking when these events occur and post here.

Whirlpool Washing Machine Leaking At top During Spin Cycle


Is it possible that the water level is too high. This can be caused by the sensor that controls the amount of water. The control knob that says small low medium large does it work if you put our small setting is the water stopped early like it is supposed to. If the water level is too high during spin cycle it is possible to run up and over the side. Let me know Ed

I have an admiral washer atw4475xq can you adjust the water level on the rinse cycle


Pulled this together from a couple of Solutions & added some helpful tips I found as I successfully changed the rinse cycle water level!
ATW4475XQ - Admirial Water Saver washer - Adjust Rinse cycle water level
The rinse cycle water level can be adjusted. Unplug the machines power.
You can youtube a video on how to remove the top control panel, its just 2 screws on the back of it,
phillips head. Swing the control panel up, and find something to support it so you have both hands free.
(http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MYn0_qCFdec)
You'll see a clear plastic tube coming up from the back rear like 3/8 in diameter, to a "T"
connection. The one that goes to the left, thats the wash water level switch it connects to. The one you
can adjust, large, medium, small, from the front of the panel . The other off the T goes to the rinse
water level switch. There is not a knob to adjust it. But if you look at the bottom of the lever
mechanism/cam pickups of both switchs, you will see that they are the same. Rotate the wash load size
(knob on outside of control panel) from small to large, back to small, notice how the mechanism changes?
The rinse water level swtich acts the same way, although it is only a 2 position switch, small and
large. Once you watch the wash level mechanism move from rotating it back and forth a few times, you
should be able to see how to rotate that same mechanism on the rinse switch 1 click. It will click into
place, there are only 2 positions as I said and from the factory its in small, so once it "clicks in"
dont go any further. I did mine with a very small screw driver without removing the rinse switch.
Once you get that hidden switch turned to the other position, put it back together, fire it up and now
your rinse is the large level, all the time.
NOTE: There is a white plunger out of the end of each switch with a screw located in place. Dont mess
with the screw or that plunger. As you adjust the lever mechanism/cam this adjusts the amount of that
plunger sticking out, which changes the pressure pickup for water level.

Our washer is not filling with enough water. We set it for a large load and the water level is that of a medium or maybe even less.


Hello there and thank you for choosing fixya
The water-level switch regulates your washer's fill volume. This switch is usually a diaphragm device with a small, clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level in the tub increases, the pressure on the air in the tube increases. When the pressure reaches a certain level, it activates the switch, shuts off the water, and signals the timer to begin the agitate cycle. If the switch is defective, it may prematurely signal the water to shut off. If so, you probably need to replace the water-level switch.

It does fill to capacity on the rinse cycle only on large or super levels.

My new electrolux front loader is not filling with water during the wash cycle. The clothes are soaked, but there is NO extra water in the bottom of the tub. It does have extra water in there during the...


front loader washers fill accourding to how big the load size is on all front load washers.There should be no water above the center with a full load.If it is spinnig out and draining then it is working properly:)
