I just installed a second hand Maytag top loading washer.

This answer was rated:

I just installed a second hand Maytag top loading washer. Model MDG9606AWW. All seems to work well, except that when it is on the fill cycle, all the water drains out of the drain hose. If I lift up the hose higher than the basket, it does fill up. What is causing this and what might I do about it. Thank you.

It's actually grey water. So I'm draining it to the garden.

The drain pipe is too low, raise the drain pipe so its at least 36 inches from the floor , this will stop the siphoning and will work properly for you .
if you require more assistance let me know please.
a rating of three or more will credit me for helping with the drain problem .
