I have a Kenmore top load washer that worked perfectly fine prior to moving on December 1, 2014.  The washer was purchased new June of 2012.  I am now experiencing the following problems when attempting to wash clothes. The washer fills with water but at a certain point, the water starts emptying into the wash tub and will not agitate, and complete a wash cycle ... appears to continually fill up with water, and as its filling up, it is also emptying.

If your washer Drains and Fills at the same time…. This happens on new installations usually. The drain hose must be higher than the highest fill height of the washer. If the drain hose is to low it will create a siphon effect and drain the machine.
