the drain pipe in the wall needs to be as tall as the cabnet of the washer. if it is the see how much hose is going into the drain pipe. should only be about 9 to 12 inches into the pipe. any more than that will cause a syphon and suck the water out as it fills

The symptoms you describe are often caused by a lid switch malfunction. It may be loose or not making good contact. If you open and close the lid, you should hear a "clicking" sound as the lid switch is activated. If you do not hear the switch, check to make sure the lid strike in still intact. This is a small plastic piece mounted on the lid that pushes down on the switch through a slot on the wash tub opening on the right hand side. If this piece breaks off, it will give the same symptoms of a broken lid switch. Next, check the two mounting screws on the right side of the wash tub opening to make sure they are tight. These are the mounting screws for the lid switch. Sometimes they come loose and the switch does not make proper contact. If you attempt all these preliminaries, and the switch still does not seem to be working properly, replace it. A replacement can be found at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in your model number and the part will be located under the "Top and Cabinet" heading. For instructions on how to replace a lid switch, click on the following link:
This is a simple and inexpensive repair if you wish to accomplish this on your own. A replacement switch usually cost between $25 and $35. I hope this helps you. Let me know if you require further assistance.

It came off of the Clyde, OH production line the 26'th week of 2001.
Amazing, ain't it? Seriously... the info is embedded in the serial number. Here's the link to the code sheet.
Please remember to rate this solution as "FixYa", OK?

to determine your model year. Sorry for the delay!! You have to look at the letter that is the third-to-last character on the model number. The original website had this formatted in bold red, which a very stupid blogger girl who shall remain clueless (sigh?me) had omitted. On our own model number, the second-to-last letter is a T Example model numbers: LRS6233BW1= 1994 SF367PEYW1= 1992 LE6685XPW1= 1985 ET22PKXXW0= 1991 EV150CXKW0 = 1982 K = 1982 or 2001 L = 1983 or 2002 M = 1984 or 2003 P = 1985 or 2004 R = 1986 or 2005 S = 1987 or 2006 T = 1988 or 2007 V = 1989 or 2008 W = 1990 or 2009 X = 1991 or 2010 Y = 1992 or 2011 A = 1993 or 2012 B = 1994 or 2013 D = 1995 or 2014 E = 1996 or 2015 F = 1997 or 2016 G = 1998 or 2017 H = 1999 or 2018 J = 2000 or 2019 so urs shud be 2002...... thank you.... i dont remember any washing machine lasting for 26 years so definitely not 1983

for using FixYa. Overfilling in your washer occurs mainly due to two things:
water inlet valve going bad and/or the water level switch. If the water inlet
valve has gone bad it won't be able to shut off even when the electricity has
been turned off. If the issue is with the water level switch then it won't tell
the water to shut off and the machine will overflow as this switch is to sense
the water level in the clothes tub. However, with that being said it seems that
you'll need to replace the water inlet valve. Please rate the solution if the
issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.
