When my washer fills, it slowly drains back out right away. Is this the pump that's bad? It keeps filling then draining then filling back up.
ANSWER Hello Derf,
This is a siphoning situation. Make sure the standpipe is at least as high as the main top of the machine and it cannot be sealed with tape or anything. The machine has to get air from the top of the standpipe so the weight of the water going down the drain cannot pull, (siphon), the water from the machine.
