Question about Whirlpool Washing Machines
I have changed the water supply hoses for brand new ones, I have checked the screens, i have verified i am getting good flow from the source, and i have checked to make sure my drain pipe isnt down the standpipe too far. I dont know what else it could be! Please please help! Another thing...it only happens during the rinse cycle.
Verify inlet water valve is functioning correctly by selecting each temp while machine is running. Usually COLD temps will run just
ever-so-slightly faster than HOT temp and WARM temp will run faster than both temps separately. Rinse cycle is usually COLD water so i'd suspect the COLD side is malfunctioning. Hope this helps. If not let me know.

tidalwave If the water continues to flow even when the washer timer and the power to the washer are off then you are right and the water inlet valve has to be replaced. If it does it only when the washer is on then it could be different problems. In that case the first thing you have to check is the water level switch. This is the device which controls the water level. Remove the power first.Open the control panel and you will see the switch on the left side. There is the clear plastic hose connected to the switch. Make sure the hose is not loose. This is one of the most common cause of overflow. If it got loose, drain out all water from the washer before you reconnect the hose. If this is not the issue then you have to check the continuity across the water level switch therminals. When there is no water you should measure the continuity across therminals 11 and 12 (gray and orange wires). Whet the tub has filled up with water you should measure the continuity across therminals 11 and 14 (gray and light blue wires). If the continuity is wrong replace the water level switch. If you are going to do it, make sure there is no water in the tub before you will remove the clear plastic hose from the old switch. Good luck. Gendos. post back...

The serial number has a two letter designation, the first is where it was assembled and the second is the year. A long fill error can be several items, we all need to know first, how full with water, is your supply low on pressure or do you have a drain hose inserted far enough to cause a siphon condition? You should hear a gurgle splash as it drains.

happens when your installer throws away the drain hose u-bend, and
stuffs the hose as far as it will go down the drain pipe. When this
happens the end of the hose can get pushed under water, which causes
the washer to siphon out the wash water when it fills. This results in
an LF "Long Fill" error.
The solution is to get your installer to come back and install the washer properly.
