The machine draws water when turned off

Modern washing machines are equipped with an aquastop or check valve, which do not allow the liquid to flow out. But sometimes the centrifuge is filled with liquid, even if all preventive measures are observed.

To determine the cause of the failure, it is necessary to analyze the water:

  • If it is light, odorless. perhaps the machine is broken or there is a problem with the plumbing.
  • Cloudy and dirty liquid with an unpleasant odor indicates that the machine is not properly connected to the sewer.

The drain stops working and liquid flows into the tank when the hose is poorly positioned in relation to the water level in the drum.

Therefore, the connection of the washing machine is made strictly according to the instructions or call a master. Drainage is bad, if the hose is kinked or clamped by something. On visual inspection it is easy to detect and fix.


What to do if the turned off washing machine draws water into the drum? The first thing to do is to shut off the water. Then disconnect the device from the mains. If the technique is under warranty service, the repair should be carried out by the master from the service center for free. In all other cases it is necessary to check whether the electromagnetic valve is operational. It is located under the lid of the housing from the front of the construction. Or it is hidden behind the detergent tray.

What to do if the water inlet valve in the machine failed? The only solution is to replace the broken part with a new one. After replacing and reassembling the machine in its original form, you need to run a test wash. Observing that all processes are performed correctly.

Fully automatic washing machine, Inlet water is not stopping even after power is turned off.

If the turned off machine itself collects water in the drum from the drain, you need to clean the siphon that connects the drain pipe and washing machine. At the same time you need to check the correct connection of the drain to the sewer.

Not always masters equip the drainage system siphon valve. If this is not in the design, it is recommended to purchase this detail and install it in the siphon.

What to do if the turned off washing machine itself collects water?

Once the cause of water in the washing machine system has become clear, it is necessary to identify ways to fix it.

  • If the washing machine itself takes on water from the drain, then you should clean the clog in the drainage canal, or properly organize the connection of the washing machine to it. To qualitatively solve this issue, we recommend seeking the help of professionals.
  • In the case where the water in your washing machine turned out to be from the water supply, then you should immediately call a specialist, as you should replace the inlet valve, and it is extremely difficult to do it yourself.

Control unit

In a modern automatic washing machine, all the nodes are controlled by an electronic module, which is, in fact, a computer with software. If the valve circuit is damaged, the controller does not turn the valves off and water is constantly drawn.

Turning On/Off Water Supply to Washing Machine

It is not always possible to find a new module that corresponds to the model of the washing machine. Sometimes you have to wait 2-3 months. In addition, it must be flashed with the program. It won’t work without it. It’s like a computer without Windows.

To restore it, it is best to contact a specialized service for washing machine repair.

It is necessary to note at once that this breakage is not characteristic for any certain brand, and is inherent in all CMA: “Samsung”, “LG”, “Bosch”, “Electrolux”, “Zanussi”, “Ariston”, “Indesit”, “Virpull”, “Candy”, “Hansa”, Gorenje, “Ardo”, “Beko”, “AEG”, “Miele”, “Siemens”, “Kayzer” and “Atlant”.

Washing machine draws little water when washing

One of the cases when it is impossible to use the washing machine. The causes of this type of failure are related to the following malfunctions:

  • Pressostat failure;
  • Mistakes made when connecting the device to the communications;
  • Increased pressure in the sewer, causing water to be pumped out of the machine (random drainage).

In such conditions, starting washing puts additional stress on the heating element, the pump, and other components responsible for the performance of the machine.

The pressostat is broken. the water level sensor

Faulty pressostat transmits false information to the control board about the amount of water in the tank. To confirm this version of the lack of liquid, it is necessary to test the sensor. This process is quite complicated:

  • Opening the machine;
  • Removal of pressostat with complete disconnection from the hose;
  • Blowing through the cavity of the part and listening for the characteristic clicks indicating that the component is working;
  • Check the integrity of the sensor tube;
  • Cleaning the unit from debris.

The pressostat is a part with a low cost, in case of breakage its purchase will not be a burden on the owner’s budget. But the replacement requires a serious expenditure of time and effort.

The washing machine always takes on water

The washing machine pours water several times during the washing cycle. Once directly for washing, then 2-3 times to rinse the laundry. Sometimes housewives notice that the washing machine keeps drawing water more times than it should. In this case we need to be alert. This is an abnormal mode of operation and a dangerous breakdown for household appliances. As a rule, it is possible to notice a constant set of water by the incessant sound of the pump for water pumping, the washing cycle becomes longer than it should be, or the washing machine does not turn off by itself.

It is even better if the water drains without any problems after filling. Water and electricity consumption will increase. This can cause a breakdown of the heating element. And if the drain pipe is clogged? The risk of flooding is very high.

When this fault occurs, the washing machine must not be used until the problem has been corrected.


The reason for the fact that the appliance begins to take on water, when off, can only be one. a breakdown of the solenoid valve, which is responsible for the supply of water (this valve is also called the fill or inlet valve). It is a small-sized plastic part with a metal plate, working on the principle of a water faucet.

When the washing program starts, the control unit sends a signal to the inlet valve. Under the influence of voltage around the valve, an electromagnetic field is formed, as a result of which the valve opens and water is drawn. When the desired amount of water enters the tank, the valve automatically closes.

Washing Machine Filling Overnight with Water When The power switched off

The priming valve is under the top cover (if the washing machine is front-loading) or behind the side panel (if the appliance is vertically loaded), so if necessary it is easy enough to find.

Like any other element of a complex mechanism, this part can break at the most inopportune moment. If the valve will jam in the closed position, the water intake will not be possible, but if, as a result of breakage, the inlet valve will jam in the open position, the machine will continuously draw water, even if you turn it off.

The washing machine draws water when switched off

Even the most reliable household appliances occasionally have malfunctions. For example, sometimes there is a situation when the washing machine is switched off and water is drawn in. There are several reasons for this phenomenon. Methods of elimination, respectively, are also different.

Drain pump in a break

A seemingly unobvious reason for the lack of water intake. But in the washing machine laid the following algorithm. if the machine can not drain the water, then it should not come. Automatic washing machines have a built-in fault diagnosis mode, which informs the users in the form of error codes.

If the drain pump is broken, the water will not flow, and the display will show a corresponding malfunction. After replacing the pump, the problem will go away and the washing machine will work fully.
