Question and Answers

Q:

Hotpoint washer is not filling up and i have replaced timer twice.

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern. Based on your symptom and details, if the basket is not running over the top with water, the water must be gravity draining/siphoning out the drain hose if you do not hear the drain pump running.

The drain hose may have slid too far down the stand pipe causing water to siphon out. Raise the drain hose up from inside the stand pipe until the water stops siphoning and secure the drain hose so it can not slip too far down the stand pipe.

If water is overflowing the basket and it won't start agitating, the failure is likely the water level pressure switch or the water level switch pressure hose has developed a hole or it has a blockage.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .
