Exploring the Causes and Solutions for Continuous Water Discharge from a Washing Machine

Is your washing machine suddenly showing signs of a continuous water discharge error? Green Machine has some helpful advice to help you fix this issue and get your clothes looking clean again in no time. Read on for our top tips.


1. Source of Contaminated Water

The water supply to the washing machine contains a significant amount of dirt, soil, and stones, causing the drain valve to become stuck and unable to close properly. This results in continuous discharge of water, regardless of the supply.

How to Fix:

To resolve this issue, it is necessary to clean the water supply tank and ensure that the water being supplied to the washing machine is clean. This will prevent dirt from causing the rubber valve to become stuck due to moss, mold, or other debris.

Next, it is important to thoroughly clean the washing machine, removing all dirt from the drum as well as any soil and stones that may be stuck around the drain valve leaf. However, the best solution to completely resolve this issue is to disassemble the washing machine, clean each component individually, and then reinstall and test the machine to ensure proper operation.

2. Rubber Valve Stuck Due to Lint

Over time, lint, dirt, moss, and other debris may stick to the rubber valve of the water pipe, causing it to not close properly. This results in continuous water leakage into the drum, even when it is not necessary.

How to Fix:

To resolve this problem, it is important to regularly check and clean the rubber valve to prevent lint, dirt, and moss from accumulating.

3. Rubber Valve Hardening

If the rubber valve is not stuck but still not functioning properly, it is possible that the valve has hardened due to prolonged use. This can cause the springs to become mushy or the rubber foil of the exhaust valve to age and lose elasticity, resulting in valve failure and continuous draining of water from the washing tub.

How to Fix:

The solution in this case is to replace the drain valve with a new one. It is essential to use genuine parts that match the washing machine model to ensure stability and prevent damage to other components.

4. Incorrect Position of the Washing Machine

The position of the washing machine can also affect its continuous flushing. If the washing machine is placed too high, it can result in low water pressure, leading users to remove the water filter to increase water flow. This compromises the cleanliness of the water source and makes the valve more prone to becoming stuck.

How to Fix:

In this case, it is important to place the washing machine in a suitable position that allows for optimal water pressure without the need to remove the filter.

5. Faulty Washing Machine Board

The washing machine board controls all activities of the machine and is crucial for the proper functioning of the drain valve. If the board is faulty, it may supply power to the drain pull motor when it shouldn’t, causing continuous water drainage.

How to Fix:

If you suspect a faulty washing machine board, it is recommended to call a technician to inspect the board and run the washing program again.

6. Component Life is Already High

If the washing machine is too old and components have reached the end of their lifespan, it can result in valve failure. Specifically, the rubber layer covering the valve leaf may become too hard to function properly.

How to Fix:

To overcome this issue, it is necessary to replace the drain valve and any other components that have been used for a long time.

Regular cleaning and maintenance of the washing machine is essential to prevent problems and ensure that clothes are always washed thoroughly. If you have any questions, please contact a consultant for immediate assistance.
