I have a whirlpool model number LA5668TN0 Serial number CAO117085

Resolved Question:

I have a whirlpool model number LA5668TN0 Serial number CAO117085 (I am not sure if the o's are zero's or alphabet o)My problem is that the washer doesn't hold water. No matter what setting I have it on. All of the other cycles work. (ie spin) I have extra hoses hooked up in back to run to the drain and as quick as It fills with water the faster it comes out the drain. Any suggestions?

Do you have the drain hose going above the height of the washer tub? If so you will need to install a syphon break. If the hose is lower then the top of the tub, you need to raise it, because it is just gravity draining the washer.
