The water inlet valve/solenoid on the machine may be faulty and letting water pass through even when it is supposed to be shut. Try turning the water off to the machine every time after you use it and if water stops going in while its off, replace the inlet valve/solenoid if necessary
if u dont find the find the inlet valve or solenoid faulty....
open the door and check the gray rubber inner seal... Look for any tears, rips, pinholes in the door boot. Also make sure the door is parallel with the machine.... The rubber seal is called the "bellow". if there is any damage to this.....Replacements can be ordered on line at,, or All three sites offer great service, so shop around for the best prices.

For instructions on how to replace the bellow yourself, follow this link:

This is not a difficult repair, but it can be a bit intimidating to a beginner.

if both of the above are ok..... its time for u to contact the manufacturer..... i hope it doesnt come to that
good luck with ur fix..... if u feel i ve been of help... kindly rate my service.....
