Question about Whirlpool Ultimate Care II LSQ9549L Top Load Washer
When the washer starts it fills up and does not stop. I can get it to drain still but it will not do so during the cycle
The pressure switch which activate the water capacity may probably be defective nor the hose the triggers the pressure switch is clogged up with dirt and does not send the right signal to the pressure switch.
im afraid you need a tech to open up and do this for you..

I just fixed this problem on my GE washer that overflowed earlier into my hallway and living room. The fix required removing the tube from its connection at the outer tub and cleaning out some residue that was preventing air from moving to the sensor at the top of the machine at the control panel. No tools were needed other than a large steak knife to undo the clips to remove the front panel of the machine and a small flat head screw driver that I used to clean out the plastic pressure hose.
The good news is that even if this had not worked and the sensor/switch needed to be replaced, the part is available for replacement at the local hardware superstore and a few online outlets for around thirty dollars. Replacement of the switch looks to be relatively simple by disconnecting the existing wiring housing and replacing with a new part.
There are several detailed diagrams available online by doing a search for your product/ model number.
Be sure to check the hose before replacing the pressure sensor/switch- this will save time and money.

SOURCE: Washer water overflow.
i am a recently retired engineer of 20 years and this sounds like a blockage to start with, when you remove the lid you will find a round disc like object (pressure switch) with a thin pipe coming from it going down to the bottom end of the machine, this pipe as either come off or is blocked somewhere. drain the machine totally, clear out the pipes, make sure there are no damaged parts to the pipes, then make sure all are fitted properly, start the machine off again and watch for water level shutting off near the bottom of the door, start with the above, if this doesn't cover the fault there may be an issue with the timer or electrical fault elsewhere/? hope this helps, if so rate me please, thank you

you have the drain pipe too low into tthe house drain pipe, raise the washers drain pipe up , you only need four inches down into the hous drain
also the house drain pipe needs to be as high as the lid of the machine before you put the washer drain tube into the house drain
you have a syphoning effect

You are right, the switch for the water seems to have gone bad and should be replace. It is located next to the timer with a adjusting screw on it.

If overfills onto the floor , then the waterlevel switch hose came off the switch behind the control panel . You have to remove the 2 side screws and tilt panel to see the hose and switch . If the water keeps filling , but doesn't go on the floor , then you have a syphon problem at your drain . As it fills , water is being sucked out by your drain due to no air able to get in around the drainhose and drainpipe . Pull drain hose out of drain and only insert about 4-5 inches into drain . If hose is tightly in drain , a parts house or home depot should have a syphon break in stock .
