Re: Kenmore Model # 417.90812990 Stack washer & Dryer
Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean. There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too. Height of exit hose (behind machine) should be approx 3 feet from ground level when you are re-fitting.

If you are refering to the sloshing sound when tub is moved back and forth it is supposed to be there. That is the balance ring. It is a liquid filled ring at the top of the tub that acts as a counter weight to keep tub balanced.
The water-level switch regulates your washer's fill volume. This switch is usually a diaphragm device with a small, clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level in the tub increases, the pressure on the air in the tube increases. When the pressure reaches a certain level, it activates the switch, shuts off the water, and signals the timer to begin the agitate cycle. If the switch is defective, it may prematurely signal the water to shut off. If so, you probably need to replace the water-level switch.
It sounds like a siphon issue. Check
that the drain hose does a high loop before it goes into the drain
pipe. (ie. drain hose loops above the water level inside the tub). Make
sure the drain hose is not pushed too far down into the drain pipe.
Also if the drain hose is sealed to the drain pipe this will create an
airlock and a siphon will occur, allow air to enter between drain hose
and drain pipe connection. This should help you but if there is still a problem let me know and I'll try to assist you further. Good luck!
Check the drain hose to make sure you have a high loop, ie. make sure the drain hose loops above the height of the washer lid before going to the drain pipe. Also make sure the drain hose is not going too far down into the drain pipe. You may be getting a siphon effect.
the water is draining back to the ocean. The drain hose was not emptied properly from its last use. Put the machine in spin cycle (about 5 minutes) only to spin out the water from the outer tub completely and retry washer. If still problem, then visual check drain hose that it still has a "rising" section higher in altitude than the water level of inner tub (when working properly) before it makes a U-turn downward to send back to the ocean. You can also test the drain hose by putting machine in fill mode and crimping off the hose (fold hose over) to simulate a good drain hose. At this test, you should not "feel" water running through the hose if successfully crimped.
