Question about Washing Machines
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).
