The drain hose outlet must be higher than the 'full' water level in the tub or the water will syphon out until the tub water equals the hose height. If the drain system you are using for the washer is floor level, then you need to install a vertical pipe (1-1/2" minimum) to place the hose end into at the top and it should eject the water through a 90 degree elbow onto the floor at the bottom. There are more elegant solutions, but this will stop the tub from self-draining. Good luck!

My Kenmore 500 top loading washing machine wont work right. sometimes it will work and other times it wont. I will put a load in it and sometimes when it hits the rinse cycle it seems like it gets stuck...


for the top loading washing machine mostly have drain pump, please check the filter of your drain pump, if clog your drain pump of some hair pins,cotton buds or coins or any small item,that the cause of water stuck,and it will long time draining or totally not running the drain pump.and its cause of stop of cycle of washing machine in rinse time or spin time,because after washing the pump must be on to remove water before start the next cycle.and the unit top load have drain pump you must be up the drain hose up to 90cm from floor lever to make the water lever is make in normal,the water automatically goes out by drain pump.
and for unbalance most of all top loader have problem in unbalance, the main reason is overload or the type of cloth you wash.

Will not fill with water goes right down the drain,works sometimes


Your drain line is too low or there is a air gap blockage.
Remove the drain line from the drain and hold it up high while filling with water and see if it fills and stops.
If so, correct the drain line problem.The drain hose should be 36 inches from the floor.

Water runs into tub but does not fill?


be sure the drain hose is not lower than the wash tub this will caust the water to run out, 2nd be sure the drain hose is not pushed to far into the house stand pipe and the there is rome for air to go inbetween the drain hose and stand pipe eather of these will cause the machine to siphon mostly on rince cycle or on the 2nd and third loads you do. last your house drain could be starting to back up fill the washer with water and listen to it drain if you hear a gurggling sound in the house pipe you may need a plumber to cleanthis out for you.

Will not hold water during initial cycle


The drain hose needs to be lifted above the high fill level in washer.The easiest way to fix this is take the drain hose (if your drain hose starts from the bottom of machine and goes up)tie or strap it to the back of the washer so it cant sag or drop down and start syphoning the water.Remember the washer will drain out the water if the drain hose is lower than the amount of water in the tub.Thats why your making sure by tieing the drain hose to the highest point before it makes it way to the drain .

The washer starts on a fill cycle. If it's not getting any water check the screens in the valve where the water line hooks to the back. If it is getting water but not filling up pull up on the drain hose. If it is to far down the drain it can **** the water right out of the unit.
