Either your pipe to sink is clogged or nearly clogged or the pump on the washer is about to give out. Does the water spray out vigorously when using the container, or does it just flow out?

Can only run washer on small load,anything bigger,water just runs out drain.Small loads are killing us,its an extra load,top washer

Check the position of your drain hose in the pipe or sink. It's probably too low relative to the washer tub fill level. You need to make sure that the end of the hose is higher than the maximum fill level of the washer tub. (The pump in the washer can push the water up to 3-5' higher than the washer. So if you have the hose connecting to a drain pipe, it should be at least 3 1/2-4' high if the washer is on the floor. If you have your drain hose directed to flow into a sink, you may need to raise the sink or put a pipe into the sink to raise the drain hose. If you add a drain pipe, you'll need to make sure it won't shift when the washer pumps out the water.)

I hope this helps.

Clothes Washer won't stop filling with water?

If your washer continues to fill with water and does not overflow onto the floor where is that water going???

The water is siphoning from the machine as fast or faster than it it filling. This is caused by one of two situations both have to do with how the drain hose is routed.

The most common is that the drain is too low. The drain for your washer must first rise above the height of the tub or highest water level before it enters the house drain or drainage sink. This height is typically a minimum of 30". So if you are trying to drain the washer into a low pipe, a short sink or down hill you must first raise the hose or piping to that 30" before it heads down hill.

Second cause is where the drain hose is pushed too far into the house drain. A typical drain pipe in the home has a water trap at the bottom. If you put your washer drain hose down into the pipe too far and contact the water in that trap you will also siphon the water from the machine. The drain hose should hook and be secured to the drain pipe and go inside about 6", that's all that is needed.

Washer will not drain or spin with pipe in specific washer drain but will if placed in the sink We have moved house and the new house has the usual pipework behind the washer. The machine will fill and...


ok Did you say the drain hose was placed on a spiggot underneath the sink???

the appliance is obviously working as you have tried the drain hose in the sink.

You may find, if you unscrew the drain spiggot, there is a blanking cap. your previous owners put this in place to stop a huge water leak when using the sink

remove cap, refit hose and it should work ok.
Please let me know if I was right?

Water backing up into washer when not in use

If water is getting into washer when not in use, then I would assume that the washer outlet pipe is connected to your sink waste outlet, this being the case, then this is the cause of your problem
What is happening is the washer outlet hose is below the bottom of your sink outlet pipe, and each time you empty the sink, some dirty water is syphoning back into the washer.thus causing the smell.
The solution is to raise the washer outlet hose above the bottom of the sink and waste pipe outlet so that the water cannot drain back into the washer.
It would be a good idea to remove the pipe from the washer where it fastens to the sink waste, and clean the connection of muck etc'
Plz rate my solution.
