Question about Whirlpool LSR5132PQ Top Load Washer
Check to see if there's something stuck inside the pump or the drain
hose connected to the pump (pump is usually located at the bottom
and towards the back of the washing machine).
If the drain line isn't clogged, you may have a problem with the water pump such as a frozen pulley or a broken impeller. If that's the case replace the water pump. Note: if you have a belt driven washer, check the belt(s) for cracks, as this would be a perfect time to replace the belt(s) if needed.

SOURCE: Drain problem
If there's water in the drain line this is normal. There is roughly about a half a gallon of residual water that remains under the wash basket, drain line and drain pump combined. That's why it is important to leave the washer door open when not in use to allow the tub to air out. It will not evaporate the water, but will help reduce the build up of mold, mildew, and odors.
Now, if you look inside the wash tub and see standing water, then you may have some drain line issues. Make sure your drain line does not exceed 10 feet in length. Excessive lengths can cause backwash. Also, make sure the standpipe at the wall is at least two inches in diameter, a minimum of 34 inches from the floor and does not exceed a height of 72 inches. All these conditions can cause slow drain problems and/or backwash.
I hope this answers your question and that you find this helpful. Please post back if you need further assistance.
PS Make sure the standpipe is draining properly. It should be capable of draining approximately 17 gallons per minute.

i also had the same problem, and it ended up being the coupler. It was not hard to replace, it cost me about 19.00. I didn't follow full recomende instructions. I tipped the washer backwards. Removed the drain pump and the motor itself. Then I removed the old coupling and placed the new one. The washer is working like new...

It appears your pump has failed in this instance.
For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...
FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.
PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.
If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.
Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.
If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.
Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question
