Hi there, how's the machine? Something else you might want to look at are the filters in the connections to the taps - these are the first point of call when checking for debris - it is true that there are filters further in, however check the tap connections first.

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!
Leaking water from a washing machine usually comes from hoses or connections. Be sure that water appearing to be a leak isn’t drain water from a backed-up standpipe. To prevent potential flood damage, which can occur if washing machine supply hoses burst, be sure to install “no-burst” stainless-steel mesh hoses and lever-type shutoff valves, as shown below. With these, you can easily turn off the levers for both hot and cold water between wash days.
1) Check the fittings where the hoses connect to the faucets and to the back of the washing machine. Also look for worn or leaky hoses. Tighten couplings or hose clamps if needed, or replace the hoses altogether. Be sure to turn the water off before removing the hoses, and drain them into a bucket after disconnecting them.
2) Determine whether the machine is oversudsing, which can cause it to overflow. Reduce suds by pouring in 1/2 cup white vinegar in 1 quart water. Then switch to either less detergent or a low-sudsing variety.
3) The machine may have a faulty basket gasket or tub seal and bearing that must be replaced; in this case, call an appliance repairperson.

NOTE: To prevent serious flood damage that can occur if washing machine supply hoses burst, be sure to install "no-burst" stainless-steel mesh hoses and lever-type shutoff valves, as shown in the illustration. With these, you can easily turn off the levers for both hot and cold water between wash days.

Tighten couplings or hose clamps if necessary, or replace hoses altogether (be sure to turn the water off before removing hoses and drain them into a bucket after disconnecting them).
2) Determine whether machine is over-sudsing during wash loads-- this can cause the entire washing machine to overflow. Reduce suds by pouring a mixture of 1/2 cup of white vinegar and 1 quart water into the washer. Then switch to less detergent or use a low-sudsing variety.

The drum seal is bad. The seal allows the center to come up through the tub and the tub to rotate around it, It usually has a rubber membrane that flexes so the tub can rock around. The rubber tears and the water runs right out. If you can, disassemble the washer and change the seal, otherwise the washer is toast. Sorry! You can verify this by pouring water in from a bucket. If this water doesn't run through then it is the hose from the fill valve to the water outlet under the lid.
probable cause is there is an article of clothing that is stuck between the outer and inner tubs, in the area where the dispenser water and detergent enter the machine. you can run your hand around the rubber boot and you might be able to remove the article, it will be in the upper left part of the machine. if nothing can be found than you have a plugged up dispenser hose.
hmmm...wool requires cold water...I'm guessing that first the hot water and now the cold water solenoid valves have become clogged with sediment. test by turning off water. then loosen the hose connection to each inlet in back of washer. then slowly open water valves and let water pour into wash tub if hose will reach, otherwise pour into a bucket. if water comes out of hose, then look for metal screens at hose connections to washer and clean those. if still no water through solenoids (after re-connecting water hoses) then may need to disassemble solenoids and clean those too.
