Water won't stay in washer ...

Hi,

Need help! Try starting a load of chef whites for work tomorrow, water goes into washer but won't fill and stay. Just runs and runs. What is wrong with it and more importantly can I fix it? (Live in an apt. complex and maintance crew around here is lacking)

Don't see my washer listed below, it is a : 9.8 amp, 120 volt, 7 cycle, 2 speed combo, xtra large commercial quality washer with a porcelain basket. Model #: LXR7244PQ4 Serial #: CT25300027

    Same problem: Almost brand new top load washer Whirlpool model LXR7244PQ4: Sometimes it will not agitate after it is suppose to fill it with water and if it does then during the rinse cycle, the water is draining non stop and because it doesnt have enough water, it does not agitate. I tried to pull up the drain hose because it is long and it was all in the drain pipe which is high, following the logic that it is causing a vacuum lock and just keeps draining. Any other solutions?

Either the pump is broken or the drainhose is lose or too low.
There is also in this machine something called a drain protector. This might be faulty too and i think that would be the cheapest to see about that first

    Make also sure there is a little wiggle room for your drain hose in the drain pipe. If you close this of completely you can create a vacuum which strangely enough Syfons the water out of your machine.

Hi...my washer goes through cycles and then stops at "light" . It won't go through rinse and spin. Help


Make sure your cold water tape is turned on and the screen in the water valve is not plugged up, it may be trying to fill with cold water and cant get any, try filling the washer with cold water on a "wash" cycle to confirm it it fills with "cold" then just the rince cycle ion the timer may be faulty and would need to be replaced

My washer wont fill with water what seems to be the problem


Hi

If the washer won't fill you'll need to check for the water inlet hose, the water inlet valve and the pressure/water level switch assembly. Inspect the inlet hose coming to the washer for any blockages. If the hose is not clogged then check the water inlet valve for any clogs, if the water will not even fill for few seconds then certainly the water inlet valve is bad and should be replaced. You can also use a multimeter to check continuity on inlet valve. If you don't get any value on the multimeter then you'll need to replace the water inlet valve assembly. However, if the valve is fine then the pressure/water level switch assembly should be replaced. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

The washer filled up with water but not won't drain spin and is making a funny noise . It's an older magic chef.


The most common issue would be the coupler for the motor transmission. It is a rubber coupling and when it goes bad it makes a grinding, or whirring noise and the machine won't spin or wash. You need to remove the cabinet and look directly under the tub where the motor and tranny connect. This is a reletivly easy and cheap fix. Just google how to replace motor coupling on a top load washer and you may also include your make and model for more direct instructions.

Washer fills w/ water, but will not stop filling. Therefore it never goes into the agitation cycle. Any help greatly appreciated!


Level control valve is bad or line came off it or a hole in line. But it's likely the valve. It could be that you can adjust it and it will work at one level only. it has a screw where you can do that. Just take the panel off and you will see what I mean.

Washer won't wash


Hi!
When the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:
It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer.
It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. See There's no cold water.
Please do rate this solution as FixYa and revert for further assistance.
