Hello, Welcome to FixYa.
Hopefully the info below will supply you with the assistance to get a solution for the issue you are inquiring about on the Whirlpool washer...though the complete number would help and should be on the tag inside the door opening of the washer for front-load and under the lid for top-load.
You've haven't specified if this is a new washer or recently installed, or perhaps it's just new to you, but here`s what I find is most common when dealing with the symptom you`ve described ( as long as water isn't filling "overfilling"...then there may be other issues )
I'd suspect the drain hose is lying down on the floor or is pushed down into the stand-pipe too far.
If the drain hose is below the water level entering the washer it will siphon out immediately. The drain hose must be above the highest point the washer has to fill, ( refer to your manual, but it is typically recommended to be about "48 to "60 in height but not more than 90" or so )
I realize the print there is small, so I've typed it out here...
**The standpipe drain requires a minimum diameter standpipe of 2" (5 cm). The minimum carry-away capacity can be no less than 17 gal. (64 L) per minute. A 2" (5 cm) diameter to 1" (2.5 cm) diameter standpipe adapter kit is available. " The top of the standpipe must be at least 39" (99 cm) high and no higher than 96" (244 cm) from the bottom of the washer...not the pedestal if applicable**
Also if it is in a stand pipe insure it isn't pushed in too far, just a few inches and then secure it without completely covering over the opening or that too will cause it to siphon.
Check your drain hose. Let me know if this was indeed the case and if so please rate the solution accordingly. If not we can move forward from there, but you need to reply so I know. Please provide the model number when doing so.
Thank's for coming to FixYa and good luck.
