Question about Maytag PAV2300 Top Load Washer
This is a brand new Maytag top loading washer. It will start to fill with water and drains immediately out. Is this the washer or the drain? We have a plug that the drain hose fits in so the water won't back out of the drain onto the floor, is this causing our problem? How can we fix this? I think our house is old and the drainage lines are small and won't let the water drain out as fast as it can be pumped out. Can we add an extension to our existing drain to take care of this problem, or is it my new washer?
The problem is most likely your drain. If there is no air break at the drain,( a gap where the hose goes into the pipe so air can enter) Your water will siphon out of the machine. Also make sure your drain pipe is higher than the tub of your washer and you only want about 6 inches of the drain hose sticking into the pipe. If you have water coming back out of the pipe when the machine drains, you will need a plumber to clean the pipes or replumb the drain. New washers pump out faster than older ones did and they need a good drain to handle the flow.
