My washer will drip water back in the tub after complete washing is finished Why Help


If the water is dripping in from the area where it normally fills for a wash cycle, then you probably have a problem with the water valve. You can open them up to see if debris has made its way into the valve, but they normally are not real expensive and it may just be easier and less hassle to just replace the entire valve. Hope this helps!

Water is continually leaking into the tub from the inlets as a slow drip. This happens while the washer is off and continues forever unless the water supply is turned off. This is a stackable washer/dryer.


A defect in the water-inlet valve may mean that it's no longer able to shut off completely when the electricity has been turned off to it. If this occurs, the valve may leak and drip water into the clothes tub. In time, the water may accumulate substantially. If this happens, you need to replace the valve.

Water continues to drip into the tub even after all cycles have completed. my tub is filling up with water, I have turned off the water to the machine but it continues.


The water inlet valve needs to be replaced. It's not shutting off the water completely. It's located where the water hoses connect to the washer.

After wash cycle is finished I lift the tub lid and water is dripping into tub.


You may be looking at residual water dripping down from the rim. If the drip is located near where the water fills from, then you may have a water valve (could be either hot or cold side) that is not able to close completely. The valves are typically replaced, but sometimes cleaning can help for short term. Consult your user manual for removal / replacement instructions.

Water drips into the tub when the washer isn't running


Your solonoid is in need of a service. Tilt the washer sideways after you unplug it and remove the water pipes. Once disconnected, undo a nut or two holding the plate in position.and remove water valve from machine. Possibly you can remove both water pipes from the valve assembly without going in from underneath. Once loose, use appropriate screwdriver or socket spanner and carefully strip the valve. Clean dirty area untill all particles are removed. reassemble and retry..

I have a Model GSL9365EQ2. It has a slow drip


Take the drain hose out of the regular drain and lower it to gravity drain into a bucket, pan, or floor drain if available. Turning the water off should not have prevented the machine from starting. The drip is likely coming from a leaking solenoid water valve at the rear of the machine where the hoses connect. Replace the valve assembly after removing the cabinet top and maybe the cabinet back panel. Make sure to remove the power if you are going to do the work. Hope this helps!

Water drips into the tub from the inlet


Good day,
If water constantly runs or drips into the tub,even if the machine is off, then the water valve in the back of the machine, has one of the seals failing, and the water valve needs to be replaced.
