Question about Whirlpool Calypso GVW9959K Top Load Washer
At the end of all cycles, when i raise the lid to remove the clothes, a large volumn of water pours into the washer. It appears that a seal is allowing water to leak into the top area of the washer (just under the lid). I've checked the rubber gaskets and all appear ok. If someone is having/had a similar problem and has found a solution (or a suggestion) please advise.
Use liquid soap. I had the same problem and after Sears replaced the lid seal twice, it dawned on me that it must be something else. A did some tests and found if detergent sat in the dispenser, the water hit the pile of detergent and splashed up under the lid. Either make sure all the detergent goes down the hole before you start or use liquid soap.

We're having the same problem. I too have checked everything and even lowered the water pressure in the event it was too high and shooting water over the detergent dispenser. I'm at a loss as to how to correct it. however, after reading all that was stated on ePinions.com, I'm regretting that I listened to Consumer Reports and bought the thing (although it's been one of the best washers/dryers we've owned although it's a little noiser than I was expecting). If anyone finds a solution in the next few months, please let me know otherwise when the thing starts falling apart, I'll probably get a new washer and dryer.
