The drain hose is too low or the drain pipe outlet can not get air and is siphoning the water out.
The drain hose height should be a minimum of 36 inches from the floor.

Smart Drive machine on starting, water runs straight through into drain, thus not filling up


Most likely the water coming into the washer through the Water Inlet Valve could be siphoned out to the drain pump and out the drain hose because of an issue with the pump or plumbing. Is your washer overfilling?Is the washer detecting an overheat error? Observe carefully as to what part of the washing cycle the water is draining out. By watching the washer as it goes through its wash cycle, you can find out which part or error is causing the Washing Machine To Not Fill With Water and Keep Draining issue.

Machine will not agatate when clothes are in the machine


does the machine fill up with water? if you were to put the machine in drain/spin, does it drain/spin? if water comes in and it doesnt drain/spin, then your lid switch is bad. if the machine fills with water, drains but doesnt spin, the your motor coupling is worn.

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.

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.

Miele G 7856 Commercial Dishwasher


Hi. The above machine stops mid cycle and drain/fill light is on, also error code F3E, have cleaned both hot and cold water inlet filters, also checked drain pump and drain line, all ok. Machine drains with no issues and fills with hot water, runs for a while then shuts down.
Any ideas?

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.

Washer fills then drains


Daisy, check your drain hose going into the drain. It sounds like you have a siphoning problem. If the drain hose does not have a air gap the water filling will siphon right out. Check this first and post back, Catriver.
