Thanks for reading this..I have read Samurai's tech tips on the most popular reasons why washers don't fill or fill up very slowly.  Although we have had a significant amount of sediment from our Hot Water tank accumulate recently, I am not sure if the inlet screens being clogged are the cause since it is the cold water that is running primarily.  But I have checked both hot and cold fill cycles and the same thing happens.  Also with respect to drainage tube being above fill level of tub...it maybe be under 30 inches...but has been running for about 5 years without ever having this problem..so what are the odds that it is this?  I almost took apart the whole machine to check the solenoids, but wanted to check out this site first and glad I did....hoping there are some other basic steps to scan before my Whirlpool takes me for a dizzying spin into agitator land....thankya much!

If the washer keep filling but it never gets full, just fills and fills but the water lever does not rise,  and the water is not going onto the floor, check your drain hose where it goes into the house drain.  If there is not an air gap around the drain hose the sewer system will syphen the water out of your washer while it is filling.  Also make sure the end of the drain hose is higher than the water level in the washer. If this is not what it is doing, please advice and correct what I am understanding.  Pegi

Thanks for ur help Pegi....that is exactly what it was doing....it was not filling up...but having dismanteled part ofthe hoses and inlets and put it back to gether....and tried it again...wala!!  It actually is working now.  I did notice when filling this time (first time) some black stain water came through...very little but perhaps something was either dislodged in the water system kit or the inlet screen...who knows...not 100% it is completly solved...but ran two loads tonight without any problems...will keep the board informed as to any changes....but thank you again for your kind advice!...God Bless

In Christ,
