Hi,

The water is burping out of the stand pipe?
If yes, that is a slow drain issue and not a normally a washer issue.
What is the make, model# of the washer?

jeff.

One too many digits, I got WCSE4160B2WW to work for me.

These have a seperate electric motor and drain pump...no way of changing how it operates...


Pump and motor assembly with mounting bracket Manufacturer Number WH23X10013
