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.

I have a Whirlpool ZUltimate Care II Washer, Model 3XLSQ7533JQ2. Washer keeps filling in the medium and the super wash level and will not go into the agitation cycle. Works on small load level only.


Hello,

SInce the washer works ok on the small load size yet overflows on all others the problem is going to be with the water level switch and it should be replaced to remedy that problem.

The part number for that water level switch is W10339229 it could be purchased at your local appliance parts store or online at

Have a Whirlpool Super Capacity washer in which the drum will tilt during the wash cycle and spill water. If held to center, there is no leak, and the cycle completes without difficulty.


Could you tell me what the life expectancy for this washer might be and does it have a good track record. (Mom gave me one) Whirlpool Super Capacity Plus 7-Cycle 2-speed. 3.2 cu. ft

Water leaking from bottom


Replace water pump. Common problem. Unscrew the control panel ,two screws on each end. Flip control panel over and unsnap gold brackets from base to the back. Lift up housing and disconnect lid switch, remove housing. The water pump is in the front lower that has two hoses , disconnect hoses and unsnap pump. My sister fixed hers in about 25 minutes.

Whirlpool washer does not start after fill with water


It sounds like the washer tub is off balanced. When it is, it will usually not start. Underneath the washer, there are 3 or 4 bolts or nuts, depending on your washer model, that hold the washer to these balance springs. make sure that the bolts or nuts are tight or secure. If this doesn't help, get on a website called Repairclinic.com. They usually will help with home repairs.

Whirlpool super cap plus over flowing water


The water level switch has a tube attached to the bottom of the outer tub and will not work if there is a hole or break anywhere.

If the tube looks ok then the switch must be replaced.
