Why does my washing machine keep on draining water during a cycle?


Washer fills with water then drains:
My advice is free because God is so good!
The critical question is. Is the water is just running down the drain but the pump isn't running. If it is being pumped out, and you can hear the pump running just the same as when it's emptying prior to spin then it could be aborting the wash because it is, or it thinks it's overheating. ( due to defective water temperature switch)

If the pump is failing to shut off then there is something wrong with the electronics. If your washer is a mechanical timer controlled device then you may have a sticking switch (which may explain if switching cycles does something for you). But if you have an electronic timer then you may be experiencing a board failure, where a cycle is being commanded when it is not intended to by design.


If water isn't being pumped out, but just draining away all the time, the washer will keep detecting there isn't enough water inside and top up with more.
Modern washing machines should be sophisticated enough to realize something's wrong and abort with an error, but if not, it may continue washing or rinsing for a short while before losing enough water to trigger more coming in again. It can get stuck on this cycle indefinitely and it's called siphoning.
Siphoning occurs when the end of the drain hose is lower than the level of the water inside the washing machine.
Try raising the hose and see what happens.
Also the drain hose should have some type of air gap where it fits into the stand pipe. It should not have an air tight fit.

Again Either it's siphoning down the drain due to an issue with the plumbing, it's overfilling, or also if it ( THE WATER) overheats then in some machines the software will employ a fill and drain tactic to cool down the water. The important thing is to work out which of these different faults is causing the problem by careful observation.


Other switch's to check would be the water inlet valve and the water pressure switch with a multi meter for continuity or OHMS.

By the way my advice is free cuz God is good!

PTC22MFM - need to unclog defrost drain?


Normally, this is a job for an appliance service company. However, turn off the refrigerator and remove the rear freezer panel. Once removed you should see a drain hole. Apparently, water does not drain properly. Use an extended coat hanger, etc. to place down into the drain hole with "up and down motions". Periodically, pour a small amount of water into the drain hole until it appears to be unclogged. Then follow up with some hot water and liquid bleach (perhaps a cup full). This should kill any algae, etc. and remove any other foreign objects from the drain line. If you pour too much liquid into the drain hole you may get an overflow at the bottom of the refrigerator (there is a small drain pan underneath the appliance that catches the water during the defrost cycle. Yet, the water collected in the drain pan, during the defrost cycle, typically evaporates and you should never have to regularly empty the drain pan. Good luck!

KENMORE, Model # 41743142200 gets stuck in mid cycle. It keeps pouring water into the washer and right out the drain. (Slowly) It will sit on the cycle as long as you let it.(Timer not moving) Never...


You may have a drain hose cyphoning out the water. Make sure you have a air gap in the drain between the hose and the drain pipe and make sure the drain hose is higher than the tub of the washer. If this is clear you may have one of the following. Either a bad water level switch or a bad inlet valve. To find out if the water valve is bad while the water is pouring in unplug the machine and see if the water stops. If the water stops the valve is fine. If the water continues to flow you will need a new valve. If the water stops then you will need a water level switch. Let me know what happens and I will be happy to help.

Washer won't start. water pours down sewer pipe


Hi, If the water is going out the drain hose, raise the drain hose so that its highest point is as high as the top of the washer. This should take care of the issue. If the water is coming out of the bottom of the machine, tip it back against the wall and look under the washer to see if a hose has broke or came loose.
If I can assist you further, please let me know.

Brand new kenmore HE2 front load washer - keeps filling


Either your pressure switch is bad, or the air line that connects to the presuure switch has come loose. The pressure switch is located on the right-hand side rear of the washer with the top cover removed. It is a brown colored, disk shaped, device with an electrical connection and an air hose connection. Sometimes this hose comes loose in shipping, or the electrical connection may be loose. Without it, the washer will continue to fill and will NOT shut off. Now...if you just purchased this unit, DO NOT do anything that will void the manufacturer's warranty. It may be an inconvenience, but I would recommend you get the appliance repairman to come in and take a look at it. That way...you won't be held liable if something were to break. This is, however, usually a simple problem and not considered major. I hope this reassures you some. Post back with comments if you have any further questions/concerns.
