Washing machines constantly fill up with water and siphon out the back drain. Oftentimes when the washer siphons too much or into the wrong place, it is called siphoning. Washers often have siphoning when the end of the drain is not in its correct place or if a washer has been moved around. In order to prevent your washer from siphoning, you will need to get behind the washer to work.
Things You'll Need
Locate the end of the draining hose. It should be attached to the water waste pipe inside or just outside your house.
Adjust the end of the draining hose so that is it higher than the water level in the washer. Do this by lifting it up and possibly propping it onto something tall. If the hose is too low, it will siphon the water very rapidly.
Ensure that the plastic crook that came with the washer is fitted to the end of the drain hose.
Pull up on the end of the drain hose to make sure it is not pushed too far down into the water waste pipe. It needs to be pushed down just enough to keep it from falling off.
