Question about Washing Machines
Water comes into the machine when it is off and if we leave the door open it overflows. We have tried shutting the water valve off but still have water coming in.

VERY common problem.DISCONNECT POWER THE DRAIN PUMP IS ALWAYS LIVE!!!!!!!!

I have twice taken apart this front loader Frigidaire washer (also sold as Kenmore) to replace the rotted out aluminum spider arm supporting the spin-basket (which seems to universally fall apart within 5 years), and now I started observing the described black stain pattern on the clothes. As with the spider arm breakdown, this problem has nothing to do with water hardness, softeners, detergents, or dryers (I line-dry all my clothes), and everything to do with the poor quality design of this machine. I have not yet positively identified the cause of the black stains, but I suspect that the bearing seal is breaking down and in the process is releasing greasy particles that mix with the clothes and create the described black stain patterns. Unfortunately the repair would cost more than a new machine for most people, as the spider arm is probably just about gone by this stage. I am lucky to own another junk washer for spare parts and am able to fix it myself. For skilled do-it-yourself mechanics, it is possible to find a replacement seal and bearings on the internet, assuming the spider arm is new (over $200 part), or still in good shape.

SOURCE: I have a Kenmore front
The water solenoid could be defective. A solenoid is an electrical switch that pulls a shaft out of the water line to let the water flow in. The timer controls this along with water level sensors. That solenoid is a big electric magnet that operates when the power is applied to the electric coil and it snaps the shaft out of the water line allowing water to flow. It also compresses a spring around the shaft and when the power is removed from the coil, the spring snaps the shaft(valve) back into the seat of the water line. If the spring is weak or broken or blocked by debris from hard water, it does not close all the way and allows water to leak. Very similar to a leaky faucet.i expect that the solenoid will have to be replaced.
