Question about Whirlpool AWZ410 Front Load Washer/Dryer

1 Answer

Drum filling with water

Every couple of days the drum of the washing machine begins filling with water even though it has not been used. I have cleaned out the filter several times but it still keeps happening. The machine works fine in normal use, both washing and drying, and is completely clear of water when the wash cycle finishes. The machine is a couple of years old and has worked fine until recently. The machine has not been moved/altered in over a year.

Re: Drum filling with water

An obstruction in the water-inlet valve may mean that it's no longer able to shut off You can easily open the valve and clean it (from scale or other dirt). Be aware you should disconnect the power cable from machine before doing it !!!! Good luck !

Washing machine agitates at beginning of cycle without filling

Chances are either:1) the water pressure switch has failed or 2) the hose that connects to the air bell has debris in it and it will not allow the switch to reset

Washing machine fills with water when not in use.

Either your pressure in the main line bringing water to your machine is insufficient; or your intake water valve is defective; which you can replace easily.

Washing machine w827 drum fills when the machine is switched off

You have a bad water inlet valve. There is probably silt in it and it is stuck partially open. Replace the valve and you'll be back in business. Hope this helps!

Drum filling with water when machine switched off

what you refer to as the overflow cap is the cover to the filter which you should remove regularly and check. however nothing to do with your problem. the water could be coming from two sources: first, if the drain is plumbed in under the sink, water can flow into the machine every time you empty the sink. the cure is to put the drain hose up as far as possible in a swan neck. secondly, the intake water valves could be leaking and the only cure then is to replace them
