Question about Whirlpool Washing Machines
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.

Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean. There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too. Height of exit hose (behind machine) should be approx 3 feet from ground level when you are re-fitting.
Rate me pl.....if helped.

The outlet of the drain hose must be higher than the water level inside the tub--normally the pump inside removes the water when needed. Get a plumber to install a proper height drain pipe for you.
