The drain hose outlet must be located higher that any expected water level in the tub. If too low, gravity drains the tub as it is filled. Extend the (a) drain pipe up to the proper level, even if you are using a floor drain to carry away the water. Hope this helps!

Check to see if drain pipe is lower then the water level if it is water will run out and if you have the pipe tape in the drain pipe it will run out to and check to see if you have push the washer drain pipe to fare down in to drain pipe to.

Will not prime


My pump didn't pump until I filled the 'suction side' pipe with water before I attached the pipe to the pump. The suction pipe needs a foot valve if you have a long lift from the water to the pump. Then pour water into the pump on the outflow side. Should pump fine . It'll purge the air out after a little bit if you filled the pump with enough water. I almost bought a relacement pump but then realized that the foot valve wasn't sealing and the suction pipe wasn't holding water. We have about a 8 foot vertical draw to the pump . Good luck.

if you are saying that the washer finishes the load of clothes and timer goes to off and water is filling the tub after this then you have a bad water valve on the back of the washer.disconnect the water lines and change out the valve

I have a GE whdsr209 washer. Stuck on filling with water.


Ok, take a deep breath and blow....
No, really...
Ok, to understand how to fix the problem you have to understand a little bit about the control part of the machine.
Ok so here we go...
First thing is the first stage which is filling the machine with water.
So how does the machine know how much water to fill, well the answer is pressure.
If you remove the front panel of the machine and look on the side of the tub, you will see a tube attached to a plastic hull.
Air gets trapped inside the hull and as the water fills the tub the pressure inside the hull increases. The tube attached to the hull routes the pressure building inside the hull to the fill pressure switch. The more water filling the tub the more pressure generated and supplied to the switch.
If the line becomes clogged with buildup or developes a leak, the whole process will not work, thus the switch will not become engaged stopping the flow of water into the machine.
How do you check for opperation of the line and switch,
well remove hose from hull and as the tub is filling with water, blow into the tube creating pressure and thus activating the pressure switch..
You will hear the switch click and the machine should stop the fill process and start washing.
Rarely but possible, the pressure switch is faulty.
Mostly, it is a clogged line, disconnected line, or line that has been damanged by rodents or pets..
Hope this helps
Good luck...

My washer goes through the cycle but the cold


This sounds like your water fill valve is bad and will need to be replaced.

Tub smells like mildew. Possible water still in tub but not visable. When tub is shaken hard by hand, slight sound of water sometimes. Still cleans well.


You will never get all of the water out of a washing machine using the pump

The only way to do it is to take the drain hose out of the standpipe remove all clips so that it lays flat on the floor and put it into a bucket

Even then there will still be a little bit left in.

Run two very hot programs witha good dose of washing soda placed in the drum before you fill it

Leave the door open when the machine has finished to allow it to dry off

Washing machine cold water not filling


Typically this indicates that you have a water inlet valve that is not opening. Replacement of this part would be ideal, and should fix the problem.
