Roper Washing Machine


I have a Roper Washing Machine that during either the fill on the wash cycle or on the rinse cycle, that decides to drain in the middle of filling, it drains all of the water completely and the machine continues to attempt to fill.
The drain hose is looped about 1 foot above the back of the washer.

Any ideas what may be wrong?
thanks willy

If your washer is draining while it is filling, and you hear no motor sound, then your washer is siphoning out; the termination of your drain hose is too low.

Thank you for the reply. How low should the termination be?
thanks again willy

You probably have the drain hose shoved way too far down the drain pipe. Your drain pipe should be around waist height, and the drain hose shouldn't stick more than 6" or so into it. But in reality, whatever stops the siphoning is fine. If you can't adjust the drain hose for whatever reason, there are anti-siphon assemblies for purchase that will cancel siphoning, but why add one if you don't really need it.
