Hello. 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.

Smart Drive machine on starting, water runs straight through into drain, thus not filling up


Most likely the water coming into the washer through the Water Inlet Valve could be siphoned out to the drain pump and out the drain hose because of an issue with the pump or plumbing. Is your washer overfilling?Is the washer detecting an overheat error? Observe carefully as to what part of the washing cycle the water is draining out. By watching the washer as it goes through its wash cycle, you can find out which part or error is causing the Washing Machine To Not Fill With Water and Keep Draining issue.

Check that the drain hose is not below the water level. If it's too low the water has no reason to stay in the machine...If the water is pumping out, you have a technical problem and will probably need a tech...Good luck....Nomess

The water starts to go in but drains straight away.


If the drain hose is too low and below water level the water has no reason to stay in the machine, and will flow straight through. If the water is pumping out during fill, you have a technical problem....Good luck....Nomess

Hi, my Simpson eziset 605 doesn't hold any water. It fills and drains straight out then flashes and beeps HC on the display. Any ideas why?


check that the drain hose is not lower than the water level. If it is, the water will simply drain away by gravity.....Nomess

Machine filling and then immediately draining


Hi You need to higher your outlet pipe on the back of the machine there is usually a clip to hold the pipe in place 3/4 of the way up the machine so it looks like a u upside down its should stop the machine from emptying straight away

Help me to wash!!


hi

    this sounds like a syphoning problem this means the outlet /drain pipe at the back of the machine has been pushed to far into the drain upstand pipe causing the water to syphon straight through the machine make sure that the drain pipe is only part way down the drain pipe, hope this works for you
