Well...if the water is running, the tub is not filling, and you don't have water all over the floor, your drain hose is installed too deep in the drain pipe, or just installed too low, so that the water is simply running out of the machine and out the drain hose.

The mixing valve needs to be replaced. It should be under $50 and is easy to do.

My washer is doing the same thing. I put it up on blocks so I could see where it was leaking from. On mine it was leaking from the pump which a big white piece of plastic in front of the motor. The pump has two hoses connected to it the **** the water out of the tub and pump it out the drain hose. Disconnect the two hose clamps, remove the hoses (use force). There are two spring clips on top and one bottom. I laid mine on it's side to remove them. There two slots one top, one bottom for you to use when prying the clips off. Place screwdriver under clip and between grove and push/pull until they come off. Carry pump to the sink, fill with water and see if it leaks from somewhere, should be obvious.

SOURCE: whirlpool duet washer fills with water when not running

one of the control valves (hot or cold) is not closing the water supply, most likely leaking so the electronics are good. one of the valves needs replacing, but if you dont want to spend the money just shut the water supply off at the water supply taps.

My Whirlpool washer fills up but won't stop poring into the washer. Is this something that is repairable?


Your water level switch could be defective. This switch has a plastic 1/4 hose connected from your tub to the switch. (should be easy to find.) Make sure this hose is connected to your tub and switch and the line has no holes. It is easy to test the switch by disconnecting the line from the tub and while water is flowing into your washer, Blow into the line. The pressure will stop the water flow. If not, Bad level switch.

Whirlpool washer - tub drains while it fills.


Your drain is to low. Make sure that the drain that your discharge hose is going into is at least as high as the washer. If not the water will drain out as fast as you can fill it.

The water just runs in my roper whirlpool washer and never fills up and wash the clothes


It sounds like the drain hose may be below the tub level. This will syphon the water out before it ever fills up enough to turn off. The drain hose should go into the plumbing drain at a height above the top level of the tub. Hope this helps!
