    tried that, did not work. We had the same exact washer before and it filled just fine. Got this new Fridgidaire top load washer and this one still isnt filling up after your suggestion.

    I have a Roper RTW4340SQO top load washer. It does not fill all the way to the top anymore. It is about 2 years old.

  • The drain standpipe is too short.
    To prevent siphoning, the standpipe must be at least 33 inches high for a top load washer or 24 inches high for a tumble action washer. Refer to the installation instructions that came with your washer for more information.
  • Drain hose fits too tightly in the standpipe causing siphoning.
    There must be an air gap between the drain hose and the standpipe to prevent siphoning action. The standpipe needs to be at least 1 1/4 inches in diameter.

    Sorry for the info...Actually what happens is
    many new machines use what we would only describe as hardly any water,
    does it do the job properly, if so then fine leave it as is,
    this
    is calculated by computer so that the lowest level of water is used to
    do the job, hence the lowest amount of electric is used to warm it up,
    (a bit like filling the kettle to the top for one cup of coffee,its a
    waste)
    So it is not a problem..

    There is a water level switch on the machine. It's usually a diaphragm device with a small, clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. I am not familiar with this specific machine, but if you will open the rear panel you should find it easily. You can either clear any obstruction in the tube or replace the water-level switch (easy to do it).

Washer keeps filling w/ water, only stops when changed to spin


Your drain line is too low.
OR the drain line is restricting air where it enters the drain stand pipe.
Remove the drain line and hold it up high.
Turn the washer on to fill. It should fill then stop.
This example should explain what you must do to correct the drain line problem.

Dishwasher not filling with water


My GE Nautilus, Serial # GSD363F00W, Model # LA774908 is about 3 or 4 years old. I use it at least once a day. It has been working fine. Today I turned it on, red light came on, and I heard activity of some sort inside machine but no water came. Turned washer off, looked inside, no water. Turned machine back on, again heard some sort of activity but again no water came. Tried twisting the dial through the washing cycles, detergent cup dispensed detergent and dry heat come on, but no water.

No water entering the wash machine


It is possible that the water fill solenoid is bad. You would need a volt meter to check that there is voltage at the solenoid when it should be filling. I would not suggest that you try this unless you are familiar with electricity because it will be at line voltage. If this was purchased new only a couple of months ago I would suggest contacting the seller if it is still under warranty. Something simple to check also would be the water line coming in. Shut off the water lines and disconnect at the washer. Place the hose ends into a bucket and make sure water comes out by carefully opening the shut off valves. If no water or only a trickle comes out then the screens on the input of the hoses may be clogged. Take hoses off of the shut off valves and inspect the screens. If they are clogged clean them off and then reinstall them and try filling the bucket again before attaching them back into the washer.

Another flood. GE washer


The water sound is normal. There is a solution in the top of inner tub for balance. Is it overflowing...as in not stopping the fill cycle? If so check to make sure small hose is still attached to outer tu at bottom left front. This dome that it connects to can become filled with scum and causes the unit to not know that it's full. This causes flooding. You can try removing hose and cleaning out with thin wire. Sometime only fix is to replace outer tub. Again, this is only if overflowing!!
Another possibility is a bad break allowing outer tub to spin in agitation. This throws water up over sides of tub. Monitor unit when agitating to see if outer tub picks up speed and starts to spin. It is normal for it to index.

6 months old. Now no water will fill drum! Works as normal but no water!


Hurlewan Your washer is still under manufacturer's warranty which is one full year. If it has Kenmore's name on it you do not need proof of purchase. The only thing you need is your mother-in-law's home phone number at time of purchase because Sears keeps all their records based on phone numbers. Good luck, Gendos post back....
