To drain out water press the 'spin only' option, if it does not work drain out the water with a tube, ie, siphon it out of the tub.

SOURCE: flooding! Help

This is usually a symptom of a pressure switch malfunction. The pressure switch is located in the operator console behind the load (or water) level knob. It is cylindrical in shape and has an electrical connection and an air hose attached to it. In many cases, the only problem is that the air hose has come loose and fallen off the fitting on the pressure switch. All you have to do is reattach it. HINT: placing a small zip tie around the air hose where it connects onto the pressure switch will create enough resistance to keep the hose from vibrating loose again. Just a snug fit will do. Over tightening can break the fitting on the pressure switch. You will need to open the console and inspect it. To open the console, it comes off in a few different ways depending on the year and model of the washer:

1. If you have removable end caps on the console, they simply pry off by lifting from the the back exposing a screw under either end. Remove the screws and the console lifts up.

2. If the end caps do not come off, place a putty knife in the front corner of either end of the console where it meets the washer top and push in while lifting up. This depresses a retaining clip and the console will lift up.

3. Some consoles have a screw located on either side in the back that you need to remove and it will then lift up.

Be careful when you lift the console. There are small plastic hinges holding it in place and they can break if you aren't careful. Place the console in its resting position by laying it over the back of the washer. The pressure switch will be easily accessible. Double check the hose like I previously stated and double check to make sure all the electrical connections are in place.

If you check the switch and find that everything is in place as it should be, you may have to replace the switch. Post back with your COMPLETE model number (located around the rim of the washer tub opening) and I can track down a part number for you.

I hope this helps.

SOURCE: The washing machine will overflow, flooding water

ive included a solution to a similar problem that i solved earlier this week, i hope you find this helpfull...

"
I am assuming this is a top load washing machine.... the load size selector button has a hose attached to the back of it. This hose goes down to an overflow box mounted to the side of the tub. This tube often gets clogged and the machine cannot tell where the water level is. 1) dissconnect the tube from the level selector switch and ( w/it unplugged ) attach another tube to it and blow into it. you should hear a clicking sound. this means your level selector switch is functioning properly. if it does not click then it needs to be replaced. 2) dissconnect the tube from the level selector switch and ( w/it unplugged ) blow into the tube and you should hear air going into the tub, ( this is best performed with water in the tub ( bubbles ) )....hope this helps

Overflow during cycles


There is an adjustable water level sensor up in the electronics bank on many Whirlpool toploaders. It is usually metal, about 2 inches around and has a 3/8" diameter hose going down to the tub that senses air pressure as it fills. Try to back off the half inch screw in the center a little. Check on Google images to see if your machine has something that looks like this somewhat universal adjustable "water level sensor"
(use quotes around your search phrase).

Washing machine constantly fills


The pressure switch, also called the water level switch, is what control the amount of water goes in the machine, If your machine is constantly filling to the overflow point, then that is your problem. Now, if water is going in and the level is staying the same then your machine drain line is lower than the pump and your siphoning out the water as it goes in. Pull the drain up a little a that should fix the problem.

Apparently my washingmachine filled up with water after i used it. it was off and i always leave the door open to prevent the smell of mold. so i need to clean or possible replace the valve in it? It not...


You already have the answer.. Yes. Replace the water valves.
Temorarily, you can shut off the water at the faucet end of the hoses. tuen on to use, turn off when done..
Your problem will only get worse.. so don't leave too long.
Here is customer service http://www.whirlpool.com/custserv/index.jsp for ordering parts maybe directions too.

WHAT IS THE SIZE OF MY WHIRLPOOL WASHER? model number LXR9245EQ2


We have the same model. We plan to purchase a replacement washer, and tank size is a major factor.

Machine manuals are available at www.whirlpool.com. It's great Whirlpool has the docs available online, but there was no indication of tank volume for this model found in the manuals: Parts, User, Instructions.

I decided to figure it out by filling the washing machine tank manually counting the number gallons of water dumped in. I managed to dump in 23 gallons before risking overflow. I don't recommend this approach since the specified water level limit for the tank assembly may be lower than the perceived water level limit. This volume test was performed on a machine that's being disposed.


Google says 1 US gallon is equivalent to approximately 0.1337 cubic feet. Applying this ratio to the number of gallons poured in, the volume is 3.08 cubic feet. If 24 gallons, then 3.21 cubic feet.

I'm sure the tank is not 4.0 cubic feet since that would have required another 7 gallons of water, beyond the 23 already poured in, making a mess on the floor, and potentially wetting machine wiring and other hardware that should remain dry. Even if we account for the space occupied by the agitator, it's unlikely an additional 7 gallons of water could be added without significant overflow.

4.0 cubic feet is approximately 30 gallons.

We're going on the assumption our LXR9245EQ2 washer is a 3.2 CF machine.

Water continues to fill and overflows


1.Drain hose is too low. Minimum 30 inches from the floor.2.Water fill valve is defective. If it fills with timer set to OFF,replace the water fill valve.
3. The Air hose from the tub to the water level valve is pinched or stopped up with soap scum. Check the air hose for a pin hole,pinched or obstructed..

It looks like that water level sensor needs to be replaced. Basked should never be filled with water. I suggest you to unplug the washer from the wall, turn off the water line to it. Don't try anything with it on your own. It can be very dangerous! Call the repair man.
