We have the whirlpool duet...(that I have learned to hate) and I noticed yesterday that it has a slow leak of water into the drum...this morning it was filled up even more. This is only one of several problems but for now this is the most important!! Thanks!!
Check near the bottom of the link for valves.
It could be a DIY job for £35. if you are used to similar repairs.
If you are in the US - check closer suppliers in your state.
Also make sure there is a small inline filter to prevent grit etc getting to the valve to cause this again. Usually it's a perforated plug in the hose entry point on the machine.
These machines need their motor brushes replacing every 3 years (under daily use) to prevent serious motor damage and a bill over £120.

Hi, If you are getting water in the washer without it running, the inlet mixer valve is going bad. When you run a load, does it finish spinning and all the water is out? I hope this helps you. It is not an expensing repair. I can walk you through the repair if you would like. Please let me know if I can assist you further. Thanks Vic
When the machine is off, there are only two ways water could possibly enter. 1 Check the drain hose install, that it is not installed deep in the standpipe, if the hose is shoved too deep, it can sometimes siphon (rare with front loaders) water back into the machine. 2. Most likely cause, a slow leak from the water valve. Sometimes the water solenoid will not close completely, and you will get a very, very slow leak into the machine. If not the drain hose, try shutting off the water supply valves when done using the machine, if that takes care of it, you may want to replace the machine's inlet valve.
water leakin in tho the drum is sign of a faulty water inlet valve, not shutting off water supply to machine, it continues to trickle in , in beween washes. you can turn off the water supply between washes see if this helps, and if it does then youll know its the water valve
open the door and check between the drum and door frame. There is a large rubber bladder completely surrounding the drum. Pushing the drum further back into the machine will let you see the entire thing and unfold it. These often get small laundry like socks stuck there as well as sharp objects like nails. You may have a tear in it which will leak like that. Replacement parts run about $70.00.
