Check to be sure the drain line is higher that the tub of the washer. You have a siphon going on the drain.

It is a computer problem. My daughters machine did the same thing and the company came out and replaced the computer board and it fixed the problem.

SOURCE: Water fill level switch stops
hello chris, my name is Mike. You're in luck because this should be a fairly easy fix. Above is a link from the whirlpool website that shows the parts for your washer. If you scroll down to about page 3, you'll see a horizontal rectangular piece that is part of the console. Part number 12 is your water level switch.
This switch is easy to see if you remove the console of your washer, it has a clear plastic tube connected to it. This tube has air in it, and is connected to the lower portion of your outer tube. As the water fills, more air enters the tube (increasing pressure), and tells the washer when to quit filling per say.
You need to inspect the tubing from top to bottom to make sure there are no kinks, or a lot of the times it has just come loose from the switch, or tub. If it has you can reconnect it and retest the washer.
A defective pressure switch can interfere with the cycles that depend upon the switch to indicate when water has filled or emptied from the tub. Can also cause overfilling.
If everything is connected, there's no water in the tube, then the switch is more than likely just bad and needs to be replaced.
Chris, if you are unsure and you want to test it to be sure, just contact me anytime. My email is
You will need a Volt ohm meter or a continuity tester to actually test the switch to MAKE SURE that it's bad. I can almost tell you with certainty that it is though.
Feel free to contact me anytime, and I'll be more than happy to help you out.

Sounds like the fill switch needs to be replaced. A good way to test it is to set your machine on low fill and see if it fills past 3/4. If it does, it's the fill switch.

Hotpoint hswp1000m washer cycle fills with water for large capacity but when it goes to rinse it won't fill anymore than low capacity of water?

It can be due to a faulty water level sensor which evidently is a pressure switch. If the diaphragm is damaged it will require a larger water level to achieve the said pressure to shut the inlet valve in all the cycles.

Maytag_lse7804ace: washer won't fill with water. If I fill it by hand, the cycle works fine (until it gets to the rinse cycle, when it won't fill again).

Hello John,
The most probable reason the washer is not filling is because of a blown fuse that is part of the lid switch asm. By UNPLUGGING THE WASHER and removing the 2 INNER screws on the the control panel and the control panel can be rotated down to see the fuse in the lid switch asm. Here is where the fuse is on the switch asm. its circled in red 11_4_2011_1_39_54_am.jpg

My maytag mtw5600tq1 washer won't hold water. Its

Its sounds like you have a siphon going on, this happens when the drain hose it too low during fill and as the water enters the unit it exits through the drain hose. To stop this the drain hose needs to be higher than the tub itself, meaning: raise the drain hose behind the washer to about control panel area. This will or should stop the siphon effect and allow the water to remain in the tub. If the drain hose is low this siphon will start again.
I hope this helps
