Kennmore 400 washer starts to drain before wash cycle starts
My washer will start filling and then start draining before wash cycle starts. I have to press the pause/cancel button to stop the draining and restart the cycle. After doing this the washer will fill and go through the wash cycle as normal. This is wasting a lot of water and I'm looking for an explanation as to what could be wrong.
faerie.tattoo since it works after you restart the cycle my money is on the drain pump being the problem. Depending on your exact model it could be that the drain pump has a lever that swaps from drain-out to re-circulation, which gets stuck or a bad timer/control panel.
