Water Siphoning Out

Performa Washer By Maytag


If the problem with your Performa washer is that when you set the water level to the higher setting, the washer fill half way and then it keeps filling forever without reaching the higher level. The problem could be that the water is siphoning out of the washer after it reach the middle of the tub.

1. Set the water level switch on the higher setting

2. Set the timer on the beginning of a cycle and turn the washer on

3. Remove the drain hose from the drain pipe and lift it higher than the top of the washer

If the washer fills to the higher setting and it starts to agitate, the problem is water siphoning out to the drain pipe

To correct the siphoning, you need to make the drain pipe higher that the top of the washer

Or ad a piece of hose to the drain hose and loop it so is higher than the top of the washer
