Disconnect unit from its power source before servicing!
The lower half (washer) can be pulled away from the upper section, allowing full access to the unit. Remove the front panel by taking out the 2-phillips head screws at the bottom of the front panel, pull outward at the bottom of the front panel to disengage the hanger clips from the top panel. Remove the 2-3/8"hex head screws from each corner of the side panels connecting to the top panel. The top panel can then be tilted up and back on its hinges, so that acces may be gained to the siphon break. 4-5/16" hex head screws secure the 2 halves of the siphon break to the back panel and are accessible from the outside of the back panel.

My machine will fill but it just constantly drains what do we need to do


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly. Lift the end of your washer drain hose up as far as you can in the drain without pulling it out and tie it off so that the elbow it at least 2 to 3 inches higher than before. This sounds like your having a siphoning problem. The tub fills up... the siphon starts it may or may not agitate but will stop and fill often. If after you do this and perform testing / a normal wash you still have the problem; just respond here so we can troubleshoot further.

Have a maytag washer model lat9306aae and it will fill right the first time but when on the rinse cycle it wont fill up keeps running out ?


Check the drain hose behind your washer. If if is too low you will get a siphon and the water will run in and not fill up the tub. The drain hose is supposed to have an anti-siphon valve / kit on it if installed correctly but not always. Lift the drain hose until the end elbow is nearly even with the bottom of the top panel lip.

Any local appliance part center will have this Siphon Break Kit:
http://outlet.whirlpool.com/-[285834]-300125/285834/

There is a rubber diaphragm valve in the top of the "T" that opens to introduce air into the drain hose to prevent a Siphon. Installation is simple. Lift your drain hose up vertially, Make a cut 4 inches from the bottom of the top panel. Install the T with the rubber end UP and connect the elbow you cut off to the T oulet and drain.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

I have lse7806ace (stackable) and problem with water leak. I live in condo and this washer/dryer stackable in small closet. I can't reach locking tabs. This stackable is also on the pan (bottom). 'BTW,...


Remove the 2 screws which hold the lower front washer panel , lift out from the bottom and remove the panel.You can now run the machine and use a flashlight to see where the leak maybe. Usually the top tub seal under the plastic tub cover will leak. The other possibility is the main tub bearing and seal on the main tub where the transmission goes up through tub. Hope this helps.

HI my name is ismael and i have a problem with my 27 inches stacked washer when we turn on the washer in all cicles the tank do not keep the water in automaticle the water start drain out thanks for your...


Assuming the motor isn't running during fill the water is siphoning out and can be caused by a few things.
· The drainpipe to your house may be too low and you either need to extend the pipe up above the top of the tub or run the drain hose from your washer up high.
· Someone may have taped the drain hose from the washer to the drainpipe to your house to stop the water from backing up. To fix this either clean out the drainpipe to your house and remove the tape or install a siphon break.
· If the drain hose from your washer is pushed down the drainpipe too far, this will also cause the same problem. To fix it just pull it out to within about 6 inches of the end of the drainpipe.

Maytag stack unit Model LSE7806ACE leaks


It is most likely the tub seal. Take the two phillips head screws out of the front cover located low on the cover lift forward and remove. Set the machine two low level and fill with water only no soap or clothes when unit starts agitating look at the bottom center of the clothes tub if water is leaking here then you will need to replace the tub seal and tub bearing assembly.

Washer won't agitate, drain or spin


quite possible that the fuse has gone bad again, if that s the case i would recommend replacing the fuse, and the lid switch.

I had the same problem, take the easy rout first and check for obstructions in your venting. Mine was clogged and it shut itself down (to protect itself?)
