My washer is behaving erratically, it continuously lets water in and and the drain pump activates and pumps all the water out, where upon water is let in and again gets pumped out. This occurs throughout the wash cycle and is consuming about 100 gallons per wash. What can I do to fix this, otherwise everything is working properly.
The first thing that you will want to determine is whether there is power getting to the water valve at all times during the cycle. With the washer running and once it starts to agitate or goes to a drain after filling, check to see if there is still 120 vac going to the water valve. If there is then most likely the timer contact is stuck and you would need to replace the timer 134014700. If not then the water valve 134190200 would be the issue.
Why does my washing machine not hold water ?
Answer Danielle, It's not likely to be a drain pump issue W10276397 or washer issue at all. Your first check needs to be at the drain/stand pipe, the top of the drain pipe where the drain hose from the washer is inserted needs to be at least 38 inches high from the floor. If the pipe is not high enough, the water reaches a certain level, then will "syphon" through the tub and pump, and the wash tub won't fill. You also want to check and make sure the end of the washer drain hose is not "stuffed" into the pipe, or that there is tape or towels sealing the hose to the pipe.
