There is a back flow valve attached to the outlet port of the drain pump. It is just a small rubber flap. This sometimes comes loose or remains open due to debris and allows the water in the drain hose to flow back into the machine after the drain pump shuts off. It can be checked by removing the drain hose from the pump inside of the machine. You will lose all of the water in your machine (about 1/2 gallon)when you do this so be prepared with a bunch of towels.

SOURCE: Drainpipe leaking
Hi Mary, I'm going through similar experiences with my new Whirlpool which I learned to hate. I'm not an expert, however, I learned a thing or two about washers recently. Your problem could be related to one or two things: The drainpipe hose should not be placed more than 8" in length in the drainpipe as it creates a siphon effect. Also, the new washers are designed to spin fast, thus higher water pressure exiting into the drainpipe. If your drainpipe is clogged up for some reason and cannot handle the high water pressure, that may also create a problem. This can be solved by using some Draino in the drainpipe. Hope this helps.

Found the tip on another thread of this site. Remove the 3 star screws located below the access panel that's below the door and clean the trap/filter to the left of the pump. Don't do like me and try to empty as much water first or you'll have an inch of water in your laundry roon when you twist off the cap.

check the holes of the dispenser, could be clogged with soap and liquid detergent. check the hose where the dispenser flows to the drum, it could be clogged also. open the door, trace the dispenser hose that is attached to the drum or to the big rubber gasket at the front. check and see if there is dirt accumulation or soap clogging the hole.
tnx 4 using fixya,

probably rubber hose from tub to pump broke, access from back or bottom, (cabrios are open bottom) pump in rear. there is a recent bulletin about tub ring not channeling water from dispenser completely into tub
