Sounds like your drain pipe is too low and the water is siphoning. Make sure the hose comes out of the machine and goes up to roughly the same height as the machine before it goes into the drain

Water doesnt stop fillinG in panasonic NA F60A6 WASHING MACHINE


Fyi. All new washing maching already tested on their functionality and features but not test run with water intake and drain function. I would like to share My experience last time with this model. The water outlet valve will release by motor when you set to drain mode.it suppose manage to retract back by spring when drain process finish or afte small you change to wash mode.
Take a look on the spring movement.normally it not properly hold valve switch hence the retracted spring not block the valve to stop water drain. Just rectify the alignment of the valve swich which directly connected to the retractable spring.

Washing machine filling with water on its own!!


From time to time washing machines fill with water on its own.... one of the things that can cause this problem is the drain hose being too low,this allows water to run from the sink back into he drum filling up the machine.To cure simply.. raise the height of the drain hose........

Does not fill to wash


If draining is occurring at the same time as it is filling you have siphoning happening. There could be 2 reasons for this.

#1 the drain hose must be higher than the washer tub before it connects to the drain pipe in the house.

#2 the drain hose from the machine must not stick into the house drain more than 6" - if it is pushed down the drain too far it will siphon out the water in the machine.

Sometimes my new machine will not fill with water


make sure that your drain hose is coming up ( 90 degrees ) from the base of the machine. and then drains near or close to the height of the machine. the drain hose at least needs to be at a 45 degree angle to fill properly otherwise it will continuosly drain. hope this helps.

Water running out when washing machine is filling?


Hi jojolevaokah

Water siphoning out the drain line
If the water is continues to fill and water is draining while it is filling or agitating, Check the height of the stand pipe. It should be about 36" above the floor. If the height is correct it may need to have an anti-siphoning valve installed into the drain line.

Washing machine fills with water when not in use.


Either your pressure in the main line bringing water to your machine is insufficient; or your intake water valve is defective; which you can replace easily.

Washing machine fills with water when not in use.


You have an open solenoid on your water valve where the fill hoses connect. Change the water valve and you should be good.

Water gets drained automatically without fills the water


HI there. You drain out pipe need to have a kink and the kink need to be higher than the highest point of when the machine is filled with water or else gravity will let the water drain out as you fill it up. HOpe it works.
