Washer will not fill with water

My washer (Whirlpool Ultra Care II) will not hold water when the rinse cycle starts. It's intermittent when it does this. I've tried going to the end of the whole cycle to see if I can reset it but nothing works. Any ideas would be helpful. Thanks.

See if your drain hose is too far down in the drain if it is will pull water out soon as it fills also drain hose needs to loop almost as high as the top of the tub if you pull the hose up quick you can hear the suction break

Is your drain hose lower than the top of the cabinet?? The curved part of the drain hose needs to be slightly higher than the top of the cabinet. Also, the drain hose must have an air gap around it where it goes into the house drain. It sounds to me like your washer is syphoning water out through the drain hose as it is trying to fill. Hope this helps..............

I load washer it starts the wash cycle it goes through wash cycle fine drains water but does not collect water for rinse cycle it just idles. So I turn knob to spin and it spins until done.

If it doesn't fill for the rinse, I would say that the cold inlet valve has failed. Check that the cold tap is turned on and check when the machine fills for the wash cycle and see if it is taking hot or cold water. You will probably find that it is filling only with hot water. A local spares store should have the valve you need.

Whirlpool washer will not stop at end of cycle

Turn off extra rinse switch or pull wire going to it. If water is slow the water valve may have a restriction in it. Remove hoses and check for blockage in the hose screens.

Stops in the middle of wash cycle


If the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:
It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer.
It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. See There's no cold water.

Whirlpool Washer - Imperial Series Quiet Wash 2

your washers drain hose is too far down the drain pipe which is causing a siphoning action pull the washers drain hose out pipe some you should be able to hear water dropping into the pipe the reason it only happens in the rinse cycle is because the water from wash is being drained and before the water vacuum is broken the rinse water comes in causing it to keep draining
