K5? which pipe is that..let's assume you have pressure to the back of the unit, yes? then you have a valve sticking or something obstructing the channels inside that unit..
does this work regardless of temperature setting.

Your water is coming out into the washer even when you water supply is switched off at the pipe?
Disconnect the washer hose from the water pipe and see if the water still comes out of the water pipe even when the water valve is shut off!
If the answer is YES!
This is a plumbing malfunction.
The valve on your water pipe is not closing completely!
There is a washer in the water valve attached to the end of the valve stem that more than likely needs replacement.
And not a washer malfunction.
If I understand your explanation correctly this is the cause.
If this is not the problem then the washer has a water inlet that is stuck open.
But this dose not make sense if the external water valve is shut off there should not be water reaching the washer inlet faulty or not!
I believe I figured out the problem for you and you will be fine when the valve is fixed or the valve stem replaced!
Let me know that you have succeeded!

Inside the connector is a flat washer and a mesh filter. one side of the mesh filter has a strip/bar across it, this filter goes into the base of the connector with the strip/bar upwards, make sure it is seated in the connector properly.
Then fit the flat washer ensuring that it is clean/undamaged and lying flat at the base of the connector, the mesh filter strip/bar has at either end a small lip, the washer goes underneath the two lips, if it is placed on top of these lips it leaks!
99% positive on this, if not buy another hose!
