Question about Whirlpool LSR5132PQ Top Load Washer
Your pressure switch stops the water and allows it to start the next cycle. It's a switch either in the control panel or at the top of the tub with a small tube connected to it which goes down between the inner and outer tub. As the water level increases the air in the tube is compressed until there is enough pressure to make the switch stopping the water from filling. This tube can get clogged and the switch won't work. Remove the tube and clean it out. Blowing on the tube when it's still connected to the switch will make the switch if it's working and clear.
If it fills with water and starts the cycle and the water keeps running in then your water inlet valve on the back where the water supply comes in is sticking. It needs replacing.

I agree with nomess sounds like a hose to far down the hole!

I had a customer with exactly this problem last week.
I suspect that the drain hose is to blame for your problem.
If it's stuck too far down the drain tube or if you have is stuck directly into the drain hole on the floor it will probably function on a low wash, but when you increase the water level in the machine it will syphon out the drain hose as quickly as it comes in.
Make sure that the end of the drain hose is above the level of the water in the machine.
Make sure the hose is not jammed tightly into the upright or the same thing can happen. It has to have some air access.
