Why does my washing machine have water in the drum when not in use?
If you find clean water filling up the drum when the washer is not being used this could be due to contamination from your cold water supply clogging in the water valve of your washing machine. There is a filter fitted in the valve to catch this debris and can be easily cleaned.
How do I know if my washer drain hose is clogged?
Start by running your washer through a drain cycle. Observe the washing machine as it pumps water into the hoses and up into the standpipe. If you see water back up and out of the standpipe, your washer’s drain is most likely the issue.
Can overloading a washer cause it to not drain?
You Could Cause Drainage Issues
No, you’re not crazy; socks, underwear, and other small items can disappear in the wash if you overload it. More specifically, these items can get sucked into the machine’s drain hose and prevent the washer from draining properly.
