Question about Fisher Paykel EcoSmart GWL15
I'm going to attempt self repair, but I need to know which part needs to be replaced.
Hes talking bout the inlet water valve but what ur talking bout is the one where the water comes into tub thru the top plastic part ? think its called a water splash guard sometimes they get cracked or split and leak

Sounds much like the rubber diaphragm in the water inlet valve is split, which means that as long as the water tap is on you will get that drip drip drip of water into the machine.
You can still use the machine until you fix the problem, but the most obvious short term thing to do is to turn the water taps off when the machine is not in use.
To determine which machine inlet valve is leaking, turn on both taps, then turn off, first the HOT water tap as this is more often than not the least used. If the leaking persists, then it is the Cold Water Inlet Valve you need to replace on your machine.
While this repair can be done by a suitably skilled handyman, I always urge caution, because the average guy may just not have as well instilled "Safety Consciousness" as the professional technician who does this sort of thing all the time.
Remember, you are dealing with 240v A.C. which can deliver a LETHAL shock.......so unplug the power cord when doing any work as the least of safety steps to take. It only takes one forgetful mistake which could result in injury or worse!
