Washer sprays out when draining

We just moved into a new house. Our washer, a Whirlpool LSQ9200, worked fine at the last 2 homes. At this one, when it pumps water out the drain hose, the first blast of water sprays back up out the pipe. The rest of the water seems to pump fine after that. So, the drain pipe it about 52" high. It's normal size (2" pipe)... The washer drain line just barely reaches it, but according to the manual it's well within spec. So.....any idea what would cause this???

Washer wont fill up, keeps draining

If the cycle does not stop draining that is usually because of a faulty membrane switch that controls the water level in your appliance.
The faulty sensor cause the machine to think that there is still water inside, even when water has drained completely.

Wash machine sometimes gets stuck on rinse cycle & dryer not dry

Sounds like the drain hose for the washer is too far down in the stand pipe at the wall causing a siphon effect, try raising drain hose a little. The dryer sounds like the vent line from back of dryer too wall is pinched causing an air flow obstruction. Hope this helps.

My whrilpool duet washer is flashing a error code of h and f

I found that my washer would not drain which is why I was getting the F02 code. I first pulled the strainer to see if it was plugged and it wasn't. I turned the little impeller to the right of the housing and it was free moving but it moved in and out as well as turned. That made me curious. I then to a shop vac and pulled on the drain hose at the wall hook up. It pulled and I could put my hand inside the strainer housing and felt the suction.

This led me to my last tought which was to pull the pump off the strainer housing. It only took three screws and when I pulled it I saw the impeller. When I pulled pack on the impeller it cam right out of the motor and I could see the end of the shaft had sheared and the grinding sound I heard was the shaft ends grinding and it was not able to move any water from the basin.

Im now looking for a new pump cause Im sure its one unit. So far they are over $100 for the complete housing and pump. Im hoping I can just find the pump.

Whirlpool washer does not Spin fast

Is the drain hose blocked?

I had a wp washer and after moving into a new house we had a similar problem. I would come home from work drag the washer away from the wall, take it all apart and it would spin properly.

I'd button it all up and put it back in place and the next week she would complain again. When I was out of town she called the repair man. He came and cut 4" off the drain hose and the machine ran for another 10 years until the trany packed it in.

I guess the back pressure on the pump was restricting the transmission from spinning up to speed.

Calypso - water goes straight to drain hose-not drum

the hose may still be filled from last cycle. try to put machine in final spin mode where all water from previous wash will be spun out the drain hose. once a siphon is started it can only be stopped by introducing air into the drain hose.
