Check and see if the leaking is coming from the pump. There could be a leak in the hose that comes off the pump or there could be a leak in your pump. If there is a crack or anything on the pump then just replace it and your problem will be fixed. It's an easy and cheap fix. The pump is located right at the front of the washer on the front of the motor. Just make sure you clamp off the hoses with hose clamps before taking the pump off or you will have water every where. I hope this helps you and if you have any other questions feel free to ask. Good luck.

SOURCE: Water continues to drip in after complete cycle

I just fixed this same problem.
The issue is that the valves are not fully closing because debris is preventing them from seating.

To fix, from the rear of the machine
1: Turn off water, unplug, and disconnect hot and cold lines.
2: Take off top panel (three screws)
3: Unhook hose at on valve at Water Outlet
4: Remove valve (one screw).

5: Using compressed air, blow air into the Water outlet.
This will probably open the valves, so you can pour water into the Water outlet. Use more compressed air to clean out the unit.

When you are done you the valves will probably be open, thus you might be able to blow into the water outlet (that is OK).

The goal is to remove any sediment in the valves.

Reinstall. When you the water is hooked up, the water pressure should force the valves closed.

Test by running the washer, then let it sit for a 12 hours. If you do not have any standing water, your valves are seating properly.

Worst case you can buy a new valve assembly for about $30.00

Water continues to drip into the tub even after all cycles have completed. my tub is filling up with water, I have turned off the water to the machine but it continues.

The water inlet valve needs to be replaced. It's not shutting off the water completely. It's located where the water hoses connect to the washer.

Keeps filling up with water even on spin

Close the water supply valve and allow the machine to completely drain the water from the tub. Turn off the machine and disconnect it from the power outlet. Open the water supply valve. Replace the water inlet valve if water drips into the tub when the machine is off.

Start a new cycle if the machine stops filling when it is off. The control board or the water level switch is malfunctioning if it keeps filling even during the spin cycle. Indicate the model number for proper troubleshooting and repair assistance.

After several loads, the drip stopped. I'd guess a valve was not closing completely.
