Whirlpool Duet washer shuts off when tub fills with water

First, does your unit attempt to clear the water from the drum at all? That is, do you HEAR the drain motor engage and attempt to pull water out of the drum? I had to do a little more than clear the drain filter to fix mine. The drain filter was clear, but my Duet still wouldn't clear the water from the drum. When I pulled off the drain filter cap, I got a trickle (not a GUSH as you normally would) of water, indicating that the problem was further up in the line. However, first confirm there's nothing obstructing the exterior line clear thru to the drain filter. And I have to ask, does ANYTHING drain from the tub-- that is, is NOTHING coming out (in which case it is probably your drain motor), or is it just coming out slowly (indicating an obstruction prior to the motor)? Slowly means you should backtrack from the drain filter to the tub basin. On my unit, there is a black rubber hose that comes off the drain filter and leads to the tub collection basin. This hose attaches with a hose clamp that is easily removed with a set of pliers (in all honesty, in fact, it is considerably more difficult to put it back ON). When you remove it, you'll notice a float at the beginning of the black rubber hose. Clean out around it. Then, (and probably a more likely cause of an obstruction) reach your hand up into the tub basin and feel around. Mine yielded about 5 cups (no kidding) worth of yuck that was causing my drain issue that, when removed, completely solved the problem.

Washer continues to run water while cycling thru wash

The washer fills only with cold water. if warm or hot is choosen, you hear a noise (sounds like something is straining) but no water comes thru. but the washer continues as if water has come thru.

try taking off the hot water hose(from the wall) and make sure the hose has no obstructions. My did the same thing,after I cleaned it out it worked fine.

We've owned this washing machine for r+ years and it has been making our clothes smell awful--in fact, the machine itself smells awful. I've tried cleaning the basin with a bleach solution and I even ran...

By my experience on Washer Machines, I would say that the problem are bacteria and mildew growing in the machine, not exactly in the drain or drum from the machine. Mildew can grow everywhere.

Oh, by the way, don't even think about bypassing any sensor from your machine. You don't want to wake up tomorrow and find a pool in your house, right?

To kill mildew and bacteria you may want to try some simple solutions:

* Keep the lid up between washes so that bacteria and mildew won't grow in it. Pour a bottle of vinegar in hot water and run it though the machine on a heavy load wash. When it is finished, leave the lid up.
* Didn't help? then pour a box of baking soda in it and running it with hot water cycle. Try running it without clothes.

... I mean, Run the washer machine without clothes inside. (Oh my gosh, I should go to bed, it's too late for giving advice on FixYa)

* If the smell continues Pour a big bottle of peroxide hydrogen (the 3% one from the drug store) and run a heavy load wash. Be sure not to use good clothes, it will get white. if that does not work, u may have a more serious problem. Perhaps the machine needs to receive maintenance and spray some peroxide hydrogen where the mildew is growing.

Also, You can try a commercial product for this kind of issue:

Some people says that it works when everything else fails.

Good luck!

Water not staying in basin for wash

The drain hose must go above the highest point of water in the tub before entering the drain or it will siphon out. Add pipe to get above the top of the washer or add hose and raise it up.Make sure there is a air break between the hose end and the trap or it will be all for not. Eric
