Does your machine fill with water even if the machine is off? In this case your inlet valve at top of machine is defective & can be easily replaced by yourself. Ask your dealer for the part quoting your model number.

If water does not stop, after filling machine at a low level and is flowing away - check your exit pipe, it has to have a certain height (approx 3 feet) up before going down to your drain pipe.
For spares: (which is good)

My whirlpool cabrio washer shows LF code

Verify inlet water valve is functioning correctly by selecting each temp while machine is running. Usually COLD temps will run just
ever-so-slightly faster than HOT temp and WARM temp will run faster than both temps separately. Rinse cycle is usually COLD water so i'd suspect the COLD side is malfunctioning. Hope this helps. If not let me know.

My whirlpool model AWM 293/3 is leaking. whenever the water from the water faucet is on, the water leaking everywhere. what can i do about it? thank you

Check your inlet pipe connection to see that it is not loose or leaking, next check the inlet valve solenoid that it is not cracked. If there is nothing wrong with the inlet solenoid the water should not be able to get any further into the machine.

Cold water fills slowly

Make sure water valve/tap is fully turned on.
If it is, then turn off, and remove inlet pipe to washer, and check the filter in the hose or the valve, i9f clean, then could be a faulty inlet valve.

Leaking from what looks to be the water inlet connection...however we have changed the hose,including putting a sealant around where it connects, but it still leaks.

it could be that the nut on the pipe connection tap is leaking and not your pipe fitting try tighting the nut just a small amout do not over tighten as you will crush the copper pipe and it will leak more

Frontload washer leaking from under detergent dispenser

Hello, I worked on a problem like this a few days ago. Your problem is going to be a blockage in the inlet to the drum. To fix this problem find the inlet pipe normally located above the door behid a flap of rubber..push your fingers up there to see if you can feel a blockage..If not your going to have to remove the lid of the machine to access the pipe that leads from the detergent drawer to the tub. Look at the rear top of the machine..You will see three screws....remove them and push back and lift the top panel (lid) now you should be able to access the pipe. Pull the pipe off and clean it out, i suspect you will find a sock blocking the pipe :) If you have any other questions or concerns please feel free to comment again. Good Luck! Mike

Haier XQB55-10 : water leakage from inlet hose jointer

You must examine your machine hose to see if it is blocked. Clean out the fine nets in the hose as well as at the machine entry (inlet water entry). Clean well with a tooth brush, refit carefully. Water should be in good pressure for machine operation.

Water leaking from bottom of washer

you need to fill it up a little then switch it off. tilt it backwards and if it hasnt got a base you should be able to see where the water is coming out of. check the bottom hose and around the element location.
