Question about Whirlpool 3.2 cu. ft. Plus Washer
Model 32822 Super Capacity, puchased 2002. Finding water on floor toward end of wash cycle when water level is set to higher limits. Have tightened hoses; same problem. Runs ok when on lower water limits. Does not overflow when filling.
I just diagnosed a similar (intermittent) problem with a Whirlpool washer that came with the house my daughter bought. When the washer spins while emptying, the water rises up the side of the tub. It hits the rim of the tub and most of it goes back into the tub but at the opening in the lip of the tub for the bleach dispenser it shoots out like a geyser and runs down the inside of the cabinet onto the floor. While we were trying to figure out how to fix it we discovered that the spin function was not consistent. Sometimes the washer would spin while emptying (either after wash or rinse) and sometimes it would not. The overflow problem seems to occur when there is a large amount of water (small load set for large or super) and a high spin rate. Due to the spin inconsistency (and a power company rebate) they decided to get a new energy efficient washer/dryer combination rather than try to fix the problem. In another post I read that someone had an overflow/no-spin problem that was solved by replacing the 2-speed motor.

I had the same problem, you need to turn the washing machine on it's side and look for a pin hole leak in the seam of the plastic holding drum on the bottom. I used a silicone sealant, "GOOP" , let it dry for 1 day and problem solved. It has not leaked in two years. good luck!
