wm1812cw is the model #. so what i did was drag it out to back porch and dump it because i dont have just a spin cycle had to be a rinse and spin and again just fills with water. After i dump it drag it in and hook back up ran a rinse and spin and shut it off when water got to door, I know from past the water turns on and off alternating spin direction so steady on water does not operate correctly. I did however notice that the suuport leg to drum is off on that side(probably me when i replaced drum shaft) which may have caused hose to disconnect. I think at this point maybe order new air valve thing?
