My washer won't fill up!
Here are the most common reasons:
If your washing machine tends to fill and drain at the same time, it could mean your drain hose is too low. This causes siphoning,
a natural process which is gravity-related. The rule of thumb here is to always
have the drain hose in a standpipe which is taller than your highest water
level. A safe level would be 38" from the floor. Do not push the end of the
drain hose very far into the standpipe or siphoning will result!
Never seal off a washer drain because your drain is sluggish. Have it cleaned
professionally. Sealing off a washer hose will cause pump failure in a short
time, not to mention wear and tear on the clutch and basket drive parts.
