The machine does not fill, water goes directly to drain

During the beginning stage it begins to pour water in, however it continues to do so non stop, and the water goes directly down the drain staying endlessly in the same process. What to do?

Your washer may be syphoning. Make sure the drain hose isn't inserted too far down the standpipe, or that the drain hose height isn't below the water level. Is this something that has developed recently? Did it ever work correctly?

Thanks for your response. This is actually something that developed recently. I'll try to raise the drain hose, because I think you might be on to something. I think the problem might be since I moved. I'll change the height and let you know what happens. Thanks again.


I have similar problem with my "LG Intello wash" model washing machine, but I found that once we start the machine, drain valve continuously in open condition as it is getting supply from control board to drain SOV, I have checked drain valve function by removing SOV supply and found its working fine and no leak at all

But I need to know why drain vale supply is coming continuously from main control board & opening the valve, instead closing initially ?

Any other suggestions that would help with similar situation? Moving the hose didn't work for my case.
