Dripping into the basin when turned off

My Whirlpool washer (Model number LST 7233aw0) drips into the basin when it is turned off. There is also NO hot water coming into the machine. I suspect it is the Water Inlet Valve. Is this something that I can replace? Or should I call in professional help? Even myself considers me fairly handy.

The problem is one of two parts. One is your water temperature switch or your hot water solinoid. To get to the back you must remove the hex screws on the back and then the panel is removeable.

SOURCE: water inlet valve Kenmore dishwasher

Okay handy Mike,

First of all, is this a new dishwasher? Or, is it a used one? The reason I ask is because there should be a warranty with a new appliance and you should not have to worry, or have to pay for, any repairs.

The problem you are experiencing could very well be a water inlet valve problem (good assessment), but may also be something more simple. The dishwasher has a float inside the tub that is supposed to shut the water off, when it reaches the appropriate fill level. Check the float to make sure it moves up and down and that you can hear the switch "clicking". Sometimes small items get stuck under the float and will keep in the up (or shut off position).

For some helpful part locator drawings refer to searspartsdirect.com and type in your model number. An illustration of the water inlet valve can be found under the "Frame" heading in the next page as item number 24 (part number 154195301). The float and float switch can be found under the "Tub" heading as items number 13 (part number 154144301) and 24 (part number 5300809863), respectively.

If you require further assistance, please let me know. I hope its something simple and you don't require parts. But, if you do, you know where you can get them. If you do not wish to order on line, use the part numbers provided and go to your nearest appliance parts retailer. I hope this helps you. Good Luck.

Jeff

Slow drip of water inside the drum. Don't see no moisture but I can hear it dripping. No Moisture on the floor. Any ideas where it could be dripping from?


Turn the water faucets off and listen for the drip to stop.
If the dripping noise stops,replace the water inlet valve on the washer were the hoses connect.
Enter your model number in the site referenced here for parts.

Whirlpool estate washer is dripping water from the bottom


The most likely problem is the pump. Best way to diagnose is to remove the case, but you can tip the machine back and check it with a flashlight(please have someone keep the washer tipped back so it doesn't fall on your head! it is not a pleasant feeling.)

MY ADMIRAL WASHER WONT SPIN FAST ENOUGH..IT DOES SPIN BUT WHEN IT STOPS THE CLOTHES ARE STILL DRIPPING WET


Sounds like a whirlpool or inglis type belt drive with a loose belt or bad basketdrive[clutch].
Could be the set screw backed out on the basket, thats a pretty common problem.
I'd need a model number to know who made it though.
