Standing water in washing machine

My duet machine keeps filling up with water when the machine is not turned on. This has happened 3 times in the last 2 days. I have to put it on drain and spin to get rid of it. What causes this?

The inlet water valve is not shutting off completely. Replace the valve, which is the part the inlet hoses screw onto.

Hi,


Kind of the opposite of these tips... your fill solenoid has dirt in it and it won't shut off...

Standing water in the tub


bad inlet water valve --turn water supply off and watch to see if machine continues to fill with water --suggest removing inlet water lines from machine and inspect the strain screens on the machine for sediment build up if so clean

When my Duet washer is not running, it slowly fills with water. This has happened about 3 times.


the most common problem with a slow filling washing machine is a blocked filter
this is located inside the hose usually near the machine.
it this is not blocked
it may be a stuck valve, to test if this is the case connect the hot water and see if that fills quicker.
a short term fix would be to connect both hoses to cold if you can.
If your machine requires hot water to function it may not fill all the way because it will switch off if there is no hot water.
hope this helps.

My Whirlpool Duet Washer fills up 1/4 of the tub on its own.


Sounds like a defective fill valve leaking water in although the machine is off.
First turn off your water and remove the hoses. Clean the screens in the hoses and the fill valve.
If that does not correct the problem replace the fill valve.

Fills on its own door open or closed


I would bet the water inlet valve is weeping. It may not seal shut every time. It could have a piece of rest stuck in it also. It's cheap and easy to replace. The part # AP3128776.

I have a DUET HT . I have been having "H" & "F" problems for the last 2 months and been turning off and unpluging to reset. This time i pushed Control On but when I hold to starty nothing happens.


"H" & "F" means no water is coming into the washer, check that your faucets are on, hoses & screens on hoses,if all this is working properly, it could be your water valve or if the washer has water inside and the pump is not pumping it out, for safety reasons the washer will not fill and you will get the codes f h or l d.
