Question about Washing Machines
I have a Whirlpool top load washer that is approx. 10+ yrs old but new to me. When I turn the washer on, water pours in but the tub never fills up. I checked the tube out the back of the washer to make sure the bend in the tube was high enough and it is. But, all the washer does is continue to pour water into the tub and never fill up. After turning off the washer, I can hear the water draining out the tube. So, the wash cycle never even gets a chance to start. Any ideas?
Sounds like you may have a siphoning problem. Have you checked the drain line by pulling it up out of the standpipe while the washer was filling? You may have a vacuum causing the water to constantly siphon. The following link explains this:
Having the drain hose high enough may not be the problem. You could very well have the hose stuffed in the standpipe too tight, or placed in the pipe too far. Please doublecheck and let me know if you need further assistance.
In addtion, please post the make and model number of your washer for better advice.
