We just moved into a new house. Our washer, a Whirlpool LSQ9200, worked fine at the last 2 homes. At this one, when it pumps water out the drain hose, the first blast of water sprays back up out the pipe. The rest of the water seems to pump fine after that. So, the drain pipe it about 52" high. It's normal size (2" pipe)... The washer drain line just barely reaches it, but according to the manual it's well within spec. So.....any idea what would cause this???

The weblink may not be to someone in your area, but he makes a good point - the system says the water is draining too slowly and that could also be an issue outside of the machine - is the drain line connected to the house drain clean? Is the house drain clear ? Did you suck up and dry to pump something that it shouldn't?
And as well, like the link suggests, can you somehow hold the Motor shaft on the pump and ensure that the impellor is still attached and moving with the motor shaft - That could be damaged or maybe it could be like a small boat motor where the shear pin is called that specifically - if the motor is getting tied up in weeds, the shear pin does just that and sheers off so that impeller stops moving but the motor is not damaged - could you have sheered off the pin between the pump impellor and the pump motor shaft?
timer sticking if you can get at it spray the timer with wd40 penatrating spray or simmilar if that doesent work it the timer clock probably cheaper to buy a new washer than have this replaced hope this helps ivan
If the cycle does not stop draining that is usually because of a faulty
membrane switch that controls the water level in your appliance.
The faulty sensor cause the machine to think that there is still water inside, even when water has drained completely.
Sounds like the drain hose for the washer is too far down in the stand pipe at the wall causing a siphon effect, try raising drain hose a little. The dryer sounds like the vent line from back of dryer too wall is pinched causing an air flow obstruction. Hope this helps.
I found that my washer would not drain which is why I was getting the F02 code. I first pulled the strainer to see if it was plugged and it wasn't. I turned the little impeller to the right of the housing and it was free moving but it moved in and out as well as turned. That made me curious. I then to a shop vac and pulled on the drain hose at the wall hook up. It pulled and I could put my hand inside the strainer housing and felt the suction.
This led me to my last tought which was to pull the pump off the strainer housing. It only took three screws and when I pulled it I saw the impeller. When I pulled pack on the impeller it cam right out of the motor and I could see the end of the shaft had sheared and the grinding sound I heard was the shaft ends grinding and it was not able to move any water from the basin.
Im now looking for a new pump cause Im sure its one unit. So far they are over $100 for the complete housing and pump. Im hoping I can just find the pump.
clogged water screens , defective water level pressure switch , clogged drain, kinked drain hose ,. defective water pump , defective water tempeerture switch, damaged water valve solenoid , water inlet valve has an interal malfunction
I had a wp washer and after moving into a new house we had a similar problem. I would come home from work drag the washer away from the wall, take it all apart and it would spin properly.
I'd button it all up and put it back in place and the next week she would complain again. When I was out of town she called the repair man. He came and cut 4" off the drain hose and the machine ran for another 10 years until the trany packed it in.
I guess the back pressure on the pump was restricting the transmission from spinning up to speed.
the hose may still be filled from last cycle.
try to put machine in final spin mode where all water from previous wash will be spun out the drain hose. once a siphon is started it can only be stopped by introducing air into the drain hose.
