Hello, Welcome to FixYa.

Here`s what I find is most common when dealing with the symptom you`ve described.

I'd suspect the drain hose is lying down on the floor or is pushed down into the stand-pipe too far.

If the drain hose is below the water level entering the washer it will siphon out immediately. The drain hose must be above the highest point the washer has to fill, ( refer to your manual, but it is typically recommended to be about "48 to "60 in height )

Also if it is in a stand pipe insure it isn't pushed in too far, just a few inches and then secure it without completely covering over the opening or that too will cause it to siphon.

Check your drain hose. Let me know if this was indeed the case and if so please rate the solution accordingly. If not we can move forward from there.

Thank's for coming to FixYa and good luck.

    Thank you so much!! I don't know why this makes a difference but it does. I checked and sure enough the hose was pushed way into the drain opening. I pulled the hose out and it filled right up. No repair bill!

Won't fillCalypso whirlpool washer model#GVW9959KQ1 LD on display


LD is long drain error, the machine does not fill because it is in fault mode, but error is on drain system.

If there is a drain problem, the parts that must be checked are drain hose, pressure switch, drain pump assembly, timer control.

Check if the drain hose at the back is kinked or blocked.

Test the pressure switch, blow into the small hose, and use a multimeter to check if switch has continuity.

Remove access panel and get to the drain pump hose to check for ablockage. You will need to disconnect the hose and collect the water.

Keep a container ready to collect water when you undo pump hose.

Ifall the rest is OK, test and eventually replace timer board.Problemwith water pump are far more commonly causing this problemsthenfaulty timer board.

Water continues to fill after it should have


first does it over flow.if not pull your drain hose up from the drain till it is aleast the same level as the back of the waher control panel.
If the Drain hose is to far down in the pipe this will cause the water to drain out by gravity.the other least likely problem is a bad fill pressure switch.

Washer keeps filling w/ water, only stops when changed to spin


Your drain line is too low.
OR the drain line is restricting air where it enters the drain stand pipe.
Remove the drain line and hold it up high.
Turn the washer on to fill. It should fill then stop.
This example should explain what you must do to correct the drain line problem.

Whirlpool washer fills, begins to agitate, then drains


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.
moz-screenshot.jpgThe washer fills and drains at the same time only on the rinse cycle.
Shut the machine off with timer during this period and raise the drain hose. If the water continues to drain, you will need to install an anti-siphon kit.

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

This sounds like a siphon condition. Remove the drain hose (the thicker black hose from the back of the machine) out of the wall. Now re-insert it back in only 6" going into the drain. When they go in too far, the drain in your house that prevents odors from coming back out of your drain causes a siphon that pulls the water back out when the washer is filling. Make sure to tie the drain hose down with a tie so it does not pop back out when the washer is draining/ spinning.

My washer will not fill during the cycle for high agitation


You may have a siphoning problem. Double check your drain hose and make sure it's not shoved down in the standpipe too far. The standpipe is the drain line at the wall. If your drain hose is placed too deep into the standpipe, or if you have the top of the standpipe sealed off, the washer will begin to fill and continue to drain at the same time. The symptom will appear as if the washer is constantly filling. You need to leave an air gap opening around the rim of the standpipe, and the drain hose should only be placed about 4 to 6 inches into the drain line. I hope this helps you. Post back if this is not the problem you are experiencing and I will try to provide you with a better solution. Let me know if you have any questions.
