Machine leaks after my kid tried to run it with the water shut off

My kid tried to run the machine with the water valve shut off, after a half hour or so of the maching making strange noises down cellar he decided to investigate and found that the water to the machine was off and turned it on. Now when you try to run it and add water it leaks like a sieve. Any tips on fixing the problem would be greatly appreciated.. thanks, Mark

Water is leaking out the top it appers that the

Hi just read your posting.When you say the water is leaking out of the top ,does that mean it is leaking on the floor or leaking into the bowl even when the machine is off.If it is leaking into the bowl then it is a faulty water valve.Turn off the cold tap and leave for an hour and see if the water stops and if it does stop then the problem is the cold valve.If it doesn"t stop the leak turn the hot off and leave for an hour and see if that stops the leak.By memory I think your water valves are a double unit and to change one you must change both.Please reply with additional information about where the water is leaking to and I can help you rectify this fault,

Roper washing machine will only run one load every 12 hours!!

It's overfilling If your washer is overfilling, check these: Water-inlet valve Water-level switch 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 will not shut off when filling the tub, also when the water level is about half full water leaks (flows) from underneath the washer.

sounds like your water fill valve is bad,after awhile it gets sediment buildup inside and the valves get stuck,not a hard job to replace it,and as for as leaking ,it could be a hose,your main tub seal in between the drun and transmission could be leaking!

Water leaks through hot feed into machine and eventually out of door when machine is not in use. it is a slow leak taking several hours to fill up

This most likely means that the hot water fill valve is faulty and not shutting off fully and needs replacing. This is a fairly simple and cheap job which you can do yourself or call in a repair man.

After a load is finished and drained properly, several hours later the washing machine has filled with water again. I then have to run a drain cycle to use it.

This sounds like the valves that let the water in are leaking, just a little bit. Over several hours, they leak enough to be noticed.

You can have those valves replaced, or you could shut off the water going into the washer with the valves in your water supply. (the one's that are usually right next to where your hoses connect)

Machine fills up with water after cycle finished.  After we did a load of wash and removed the clothes we noticed later that there was water in the machine and it was off.  this has happened...


You have a solenoid leaking by. Next time toy finish a load, shut of one of the water supply valves at the wall. If the water does NOT come into the machine after that, you know that you closed the right valve. Once you have determined which side (hot or cold) is leaking, follow that hose to the machine. The hose connects to the solenoid valve, which is just an electrically controlled valve that is either opened or closed. You can try to service the valve, but it is easier to remove and replace it. They don't cost much, and you can get an exact replacement at any appliance parts supply house. Total time to replace...1-1/2 hours.
Best regards, --W/D-- please feel free to rate this solution...thanx!

All washing machines have a solenoid valve for turning on and shutting off the water coming in, one for the hot water and one for cold. It sounds like one of them has a slow leak.

Try shutting off the cold water supply to the machine for a day and see if the tub fills with water. Next try shutting off the hot water supply and leaving the cold supply on. This will tell you which valve is leaking.

This solenoid valve is something you can buy from an appliance parts company. In some cases, someone handy may even be able to disassemble it and replace a washer that is leaking.

Until it is repaired, you can get by with shutting off the water supply when you are not using the machine or shutting off the supply that is leaking. For example, if it's the hot water supply valve that is leaking, just shut off the hot and do only cold water washing.

Hot and cold water flow in very slow

Close your faucet valve & unscrew your hoses to check screens on hoses & machine. Clean out well. Water shd be in good pressure at faucet. Refit, check for leaks. If this is not the problem change your inlet valve, it is easily done. Will tell u shortly where to get spares.
