SOURCE: Drum keeps filling with water even in dryer mode

Open up the top of the machine. Plug off the wall mains. Turn off the wall faucet. How is the wire connection for the inlet valve, the water inlet. Fine? If not unscrew the inlet valve from the corner of the machine after disconnecting the hoses, & dismantle to clean it up, re-assemble, refit back to machine.

SOURCE: WF860 drum filling with water

Normally I would think that the problem is with the drain system (faulty pump or clogged lines), but you told me that also "When the washing machine is not bein.g used the drum slowly starts to fill with water!!" therefor I think it can be a dafective inlet valve or a faulty control assembly.
In either case, you will need a technician to fix this.

SOURCE: fills water goes through program drum dose not

Remove the motor, and check the brushes in the motor, if o/k, then could be a board prob, or something as simple as a broken or bad connection.

IT KEEPS FILLING UP WITH WATER AND OVERFLOWS


There is a tube next to the drum that senses the water level, take the screws out of the back of the machine near the top and then you can lift the top off over the drum, look for the tube and see if it is plugged with lint dirt or softener. Clean it out. If that is not the problem then check the sensor that it plugs into to be sure it is not bad

Even when not programmed to the washer/dryer fills up with water?


Check the water inlet valves, located where the water lines plug into the machine. Also check for proper water pressure and make sure that your water pressure is not surging. If this help please rate. Thank you

Washer filled up with water when not turned on


It sounds like the water inlet valve assembly is letting a trickle of water thru when its not supposed to. It is located on the rear of the washer, it is the part the water hoses connect to. Make sure the power and water are turned off, then disconnect the water fill hoses. The valve is attached to a bracket, the valve will have 4 electrical selenoids on it and a hose leading further into the machine. Make a drawing of where the wires/colors were attached before you pull them off. The valve for that machine (MLG2000AWW or MLG2000AXW) usually costs about $45.00 to $55.00

Drum filling with water when machine switched off


what you refer to as the overflow cap is the cover to the filter which you should remove regularly and check. however nothing to do with your problem. the water could be coming from two sources: first, if the drain is plumbed in under the sink, water can flow into the machine every time you empty the sink. the cure is to put the drain hose up as far as possible in a swan neck. secondly, the intake water valves could be leaking and the only cure then is to replace them
