The water inlet valve is not sealing completely. Replace it. (it's the part the inlet hoses screw onto)

My washer is filling with water non-stop, even when its not on. I have to turn the water off to the machine to keep it from filling with water. Is there a valve stuck open? Or is it circuit board going...


The water LEVEL SENSOR has failed and so there is no detection of the level selected on the washer. Hence the inlet valve is not cut off even after the water level has reached,
You need to check this unit and replace.
Secondly as mentioned even after the power is put off if the water comes into the washer then it is possible that the INLET valve has failed or is stuck OPEN .
Remove clean and reset or replace.

Whirlpool Duet GHW9100LW1 fills up with power off


You have a faulty fill valve

If you want to check which one, try turning off the cold supply only before you go to bed

If the washer has water in it next morning it is the hot valve that has gone faulty if it is dry then it is the cold one

They are easy to change and can be bought from a number of suppliers

Front load washer fills up with water


Jamesbestor,

The water fill selenoid had junk in it holding the valve open or the seat in the valve is damaged.
Turn off the power and water, remove two screws on the back of the machine and remove the lid.
On the back left top corner are the water fill selenoids. Remove these and disassemble by undoing the 6 or 8 screws ( depending upon model ) holding the unit together. Clean and reassemble, it should take care of the problem. If not, replace the selenoid.

Washer will not turn on


You have some scale or something keeping the water fill valve open most likely. If it still tries to fill unplug the machine if it still tries to fill do the following. Remove the fill valve and disassemble it. If you see the dirt or rust flush it out when it looks clean reassemble it and before you attach the hoses put them in the washer and turn them on to flush out the lines then reattach hoses and try it.

If this helps you please rate me with as high a retign as possible. If not please restate your problem and help me understand better what trouble your having. Thnks for using fixya and good luck.

Washer should fill, remove hoses, check screens in hoses and or valves on machine for clogs. Verify water valves at the source are turned on. If all this checks, you need new valve installed on your washer.

Whirlpool Duet washer fills with water by itself


sounds like a faulty water inlet valve, not seating properly after closing the valve.replacing the valve is the only solution to this problem, in the meantime you can turn off your water supply in between doing loads.

not a bad habit to get into!!!!
