Question about Washing Machines
Posted by Anonymous on
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:
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.
