Question about Whirlpool LTG5243D Top Load Stacked Washer / Dryer
The barrel in my washing machine has tilted and when it begins to fill all the water runs out.
SOURCE: Washing Machine
Do you have the hose inserted too far down in the drain standpipe? If so, you may have created a situation called "siphoning". You need to have an air gap so the hose will drain properly, and doesn't drain when you don't need it to. If the hose is resting in the trap area of the drain, it stays submerged in water and will siphon the water from the washer as it fills. Another situation that occurs is when consumers try to seal the top of the standpipe to keep odors from coming back up through the drain and/or to prevent overflows. This can also cause siphoning. Just some things to consider. Double check your drain hose and let me know if this helps you.

Since your washer worked fine while in Germany and now is exhibiting this problem at your new home, you may want to double check how it was installed. I suspect you may have a problem known as "siphoning". The following link explains:
This could be a simple situation where the drain line on the washer is not installed correctly. There are minimum height and length requirments on the drain line. In addition, make sure the stand pipe you have the drain hose inserted in has a proper air gap to allow draining. All of this is explained in the link provided.
I hope this information is helpful to you. The majority of the situations arise from improper installation and is not an operaitonal problem with the washer. If, however, you double check everything and still have problems, please post back and let me know.

Water siphoning out the drain line
If the water is continues to fill and water is draining while it is filling or agitating, Check the height of the stand pipe. It should be about 36" above the floor. If the height is correct it may need to have an anti-siphoning valve installed into the drain line.

raise the main drain hose to the top of the back control head. there may be a problem with the main hose being to low and the water is gravity siphoning out of the washer.make sure the washer is off when you lift the hose up but do not remove it from the wall,you should here water drain out once it has stopped draining restart you machine and it should fill to the proper level and quit then go into your wash cycle
