Question about Whirlpool Ultimate Care II LSQ9564J Top Load Washer
You could have a siphoning problem. This can occur when you have your drain hose shoved down in the standpipe too far, or if there's no air gap where the drain hose enters the standpipe.
The standpipe is the drain line at the wall where your washer drain hose is placed. There should be enough air space around the drain hose to allow air to enter the drain line. Also the end of the drain hose should not be shoved so far down into the standpipe that is resting in the trap where water sits (about 4 to 6 inches is sufficient). If either of these conditions occur the washer will start to fill and then begin siphoning (or draining) water from the tub.
Do not seal the top of the standpipe either. Many consumers seal the pipe in an effort to prevent overflows or odors from escaping from the drain line. This actually causes more harm than good and results in washer drain problems.
I hope this helps you. Please post back if you have any further questions or concerns.
