You may have a simple problem known as "siphoning". Have you checked your installation/ In particular, the drain hose? the following link explains how to check and correct a siphoning problem with a washer:

Usually when a washer drains as it tries to fill, its a drainage problem of some type. You may have a simple problem that is easily remedied. You may not require anything, but pulling the drain hose up out of the standpipe and repositioning it to ensure there is a proper air gap for drainage. I hope this helps you.

GE Profile top load washer not spinning during drain cycles. Have tried resetting motor with door switch trick but still stuck. Water drains but machine not spinnin out.


it seems to me that the water sensor switch is not letting the control panel that the water has all gone therefore check in the back of the machine and look for a small 5mm pipe take it off and blow gently into it you should hear a click and one when you let the air out if so then the place where you took the pipe from is blocked not allowing it to operate so take a pipe cleaner or a steel rod to fit the hole and unclog it its normally blocked with soap goo eric

Kenmore washer 80 series does not drain


When your washing machine won't drain, it could be as simple as a kinked hose or as complicated as a faulty impeller on the pump. Here are some steps to help you determine the problem and solution:

1. Pinched hose: Is the drain hose at the back of the washer been flattened or twisted in any area? A pinched hose could prevent the water from draining thoroughly. Gently straighten the hose, and make sure there is sufficient room between the back of the washing machine and the wall to prevent a repeat of the problem.

2. Clogged drain hose or pump: Does the drum spin normally, but the washing machine won't drain the water? Sometimes a piece of clothing, money, fabric or other debris gets into the water between the inner and outer tub. It may then make its way into a drain hose or even into the pump itself. The farther into the machinery a clog goes, the trickier it can be to remove. Call a repair professional for help.

3. Faulty timer: Does your machine fill with water and begin agitating, but the cycle never advances far enough to allow the water to drain? The timer that controls the cycles may be broken. Arrange for washing machine repair service.

4. Worn or loose belts: Are clothes still soaked at the end of a wash, even though the washing machine appears to go through the spin and drain cycles? The timer that controls the cycles may be broken. This is a job for the pros.

5. Faulty or jammed internal impeller on pump: When the spin cycle starts, do you hear a humming noise? The internal impeller that moves the water through the drain pump may be faulty or jammed. A grinding or grating sound is almost always an indication of a coin, button or other object colliding with the impeller. Have a washing machine repair expert determine if the impeller is jammed and can be cleared, or if the pump needs to be replaced.

6. Pump failure: Is your washing machine more than 7 years old? Your pump may simply have worn out. Even if it sounds as though it is running, the pump may not be working well enough to draw the water out of the machine. Replacement parts for pumps are generally unavailable. A new pump may be necessary.

Washing machine won't drain

When your washing machine won't drain, it could be as simple as a kinked hose or as complicated as a faulty impeller on the pump. Overloading your washing machine can cause items to be swept into the space between the inner and outer tub, leading to clogs in the drain hose or pump. These clogs may be the reason for why your washing machine won't drain. Here are some steps to help you determine the problem and solution:

1. Pinched hose: Is the drain hose at the back of the washer been flattened or twisted in any area? A pinched hose could prevent the water from draining thoroughly. Gently straighten the hose, and make sure there is sufficient room between the back of the washing machine and the wall to prevent a repeat of the problem.

Water pump is clogged on my maytag front loader how do you unclog it? I washed old tugs that had rubber backing and they fell apart and crumbled


Unplug the dryer or disconnect power then remove the three screws attaching the bottom of the lower front access panel and pull the panel down and off. Once the panel is off, you'll find the drain filter attached to the drain pump.

Place a container or a piece of towel underneath the filter to catch spillage. You may need to drain the water from the machine by putting the end of the drain hose over a container on the floor. Position the container as low as possible to extract as much water.

Remove the filter by turning the knob counterclockwise and clean it. Also take a moment to inspect the drain pump impeller by reaching it in with your finger and turning it. The impeller should turn freely. Otherwise, replace the drain pump.

This Maytag machine is made by Whirlpool and therefore troubleshooting are basically the same. Click on link below for more detailed drain problem troubleshooting.

The bleach and softner dispenser does not work. The liquid softner would still be there at the end of the wash - never dispensed. I took out the dispenser and cleaned it, but no change. When I leave the...


Don't know if this is the answer, but my dispensers stayed filled also. repairman said the water wasn't flowing into the machine quickly enough and therefore not tripping the sensor that told the machine when to disburse the softener and/or bleach. He took the cold watersupply line loose, and the mesh was full of sediment. He said it wasn't necessary to replace the mesh. Sure enough, it started working immediately. He did the same for the hot water line..it wasn't clogged.

Hotpoint Aquarius 1200 Washer Dryer not drying.


Hi, I think the problem you have is with the cold water inlet valve? When your machine dries it uses a small amount of water at high pressure through a restricter fitted in the water inlet valve. These break down letting in to much water which cannot evaporate quick enough for it to pump out causing the washing to become wetter than after the wash/spin cycle. The only way of solving this is to replace th tree way water inlet valve. But make sure that the pump is working ok first and that there is nothing in the sump hose trap which is located underneath the washing machine out the bottom of the tub.
Good luck.................
