    I have a Model 9100lW1 - My tub fills with water over a short period of time (2 to 4 hours) after we run the washing machine cycle. It is happening more frequently.I have to shut off the cold and hot water inlet to prevent the tub from filling with water.

    I have a Whirlpool Fronti-Load washer Model# GHW9100LW2 (white). I am getting water leaking from a small groove/opening on the bottom of the door frame, which seeps into the bottom drawer and onto the floor.

    Please advise what the purpose of this opening is and why the washer is leaking from it.

    Thank you for your assistance.

Dishwasher slowly fills after cycle


If water slowly fills in the tub when not in use.

a) Most likely your machine inlet water valve not seating properly and closing. Change the machine water valve.

b) May be sink drain water back flowing to the tub. But you have checked that.

So it has to be the machine inlet water valve.

My Bosch classixx washing machine is overflowing


Bad water pressure switch or bad water inlet valve? does it have or leak water in the tub when not in use? ( inlet valve) sometimes the pressure switch tube has a hole or blockage in it and will not have the pressure needed to open diaphram and go into wash cycle and it may overflow

Water will not turn off


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
Water Inlet Valve If the washer is overflowing and power is shut off to the washer, the water inlet valve has failed. Replace it.
Pressure Switch If the washer is overflowing the pressure switch might be defective. The pressure switch is attached to a small tube which is attached to the outer wash tub. As the water level rises the air pressure in the tube increases, once the set water level is reached the pressure switch turns off power to the water inlet valve. Check to be sure the air tube to the pressure switch is clear before replacing the switch.

Low Water Pressure from House Supply If the washer is overflowing the water pressure to the water inlet valve might be too low. The water inlet valve requires a minimum of 20 psi to shut off properly. If the pressure is lower, the valve may not close fully when the power is shut off. This results in the valve leaking water into the washer and causing it to overflow.

Set it going, fills up ok, goes through washing cycle but after spinning and then filling up for next cycle it overflows


Rather hard to understand your problem from the wording in the question but what I understand to be the case is that your tub fills up with water and overflows after the cycle is finished. Perhaps overnight water slowly fills the tub. This is due to the water inlet valve not shutting off all the way. The Inlet valve assembly needs to be replaced.

My washer will not stop filling. it will continue to fill and overflow. What do I do?


Hello there:
If your washer is overfilling, check these: Water-inlet valve 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-level switch A defect--or an obstruction--in the water-level switch may mean that it can't tell the water to shut off. So the machine overflows. This switch senses the water level in the clothes tub. It's usually a diaphragm device with a small, clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level in the tub increases, the pressure on the air in the tube increases. When the pressure reaches a certain level, it activates the switch, shuts off the water, and signals the timer to begin the agitate cycle. You can either clear any obstruction in the tube or replace the water-level switch.

Water filling up slowly in the tub


The problem can actually be caused by the water inlet valve leaking by, or a faulty pressure switch. Both are fairly simple to replace. The following link explains how to diagnose the problem:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3753262-front_load_washer_fills_when_not_in_use

I have included steps on how to replace both parts, and web resources to search for replacements. If the model number is correct, the replacement part numbers you may need are:

Water Inlet Valve - 8181694
Pressure Switch - 8181695

If you have any questions about this repair, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.
