If your drain is not high enough, 39 inches, from the ground, it will siphon out. Also if your drain hose is too far down the drain, this will also happen. Just make sure your drain hose in not laying on the ground.

Won't drain


the problem is either your pump or your hoses. this an easy fix. all you need is a screwdriver and a bucket to catch water. 1st unplug the machine and remove the drain hose from the drain. then try to drain the water from the washer by plugging it back in and setting the washer to drain. if no water comes out of your drain hose then you know your plumbing is ok. next put the drain hose back in the drain and take the cabinet of your washer. you will see your pump with 2 hoses connecting to it. one hose connects to the basket and the other to the drain. disconnect the hose coming from the basket and if water comes out then you know the basket is not blocked with any article of clothing. if both check out ok your problem would be the pump. write down the model and serial number to your washer and buy a pump. they are only about 15.00. remove the old and install the new. having a repairman like me install would cost about 150.00, so i advise you to do it yourself or have a friend help.
