Question about Roper RAS8445KQ Top Load Washer
If you do not allow an air gap for proper drainage on your drain line, the water will siphon out of the washer as it tries to fill. Double check to make sure: 1. You do not have the washer drain hose placed too far down into the standpipe. 2. You do not have the top of the standpipe sealed off. Placing the hose too far into the standpipe may cause the drain line to be sitting in water in the drain trap, leaving no air gap. Sealing off the top of the standpipe will have the same affect. Remember, you need an air gap for proper drainage. Only place the hose about 3 to 4 inches into the standpipe and the fit should not be tight. That is, there should be an air gap around the drain hose as it sits inside the standpipe. Double check and let me know if this helps.
