Question about Whirlpool Washing Machines
It is probably a blockage in the level pressure chamber which is either a part of the drain pump manifold or a seperate chamber attached to the bottom of the tub. Its easy to find just follow the small pressure hose from the top of the machine. If its part of the drain manifold its not so easy to clear unless you have a large sirringe to pump hot water down the hose to clear it.Remember to unplug the appliance from the power supply.
Also clean the chamber attached to the bottom part of the bucket and used a syringe to push hot water down the this plastic hose that runs to that unit.
also made sure that the clip holding the plastic hose at both ends are fited properly
If you know how to use a mains volt meter you can check if the solenoid that controls the water inlet is energised to start and the de-energised to stop the flow of water. If this operates as suggested the water level switch is probably ok as is the controller. That then leaves the valve itself - if brave - disconnect water and power, remove valve and disassemble. There is a tiny hole in rubber membrane inside valve. If this gets blocked it can open but cannot close. Usually it is a tiny piece of dirt that causes the problem.
In other way check the drain line for kinks or obstructions. Check the pump. Remove the hoses from the pump and use a flashlight to look into the suction port. Make sure nothing is clogging the pump, like the occasional stray piece of clothing, and check the pump impeller. Make sure there are no broken or missing blades and that the impeller will spin freely. If any blades are broken/missing or if you can't get the impeller to spin freely, the pump is defective. Hopefully it's just a clogged drain line, pump, or jammed impeller.

Use the video link referenced above to show how to access the components inside the cabinet.
Test the lid switch with a volt meter set for ohms. No reading is a bad switch. If switch is good,remove the drain pump attached to the motor and check for a garment or lint in the pump.
