Draining while filling


When the end of the drain hose is lower than the water level inside your washer, water drains or ‘siphons’ as your washer fills. Check the drain hose is inserted into the standpipe by no more than 20mm. The standpipe should be 800-1200mm in height. Refer to your User Guide for further information.

Drain hose loose

If the end of the drain hose is leaking or sitting in water, it’s likely to be loose, so reinsert into the standpipe as per your User Guide.
