My washer will drip water back in the tub after complete washing is finished Why Help


If the water is dripping in from the area where it normally fills for a wash cycle, then you probably have a problem with the water valve. You can open them up to see if debris has made its way into the valve, but they normally are not real expensive and it may just be easier and less hassle to just replace the entire valve. Hope this helps!

Every time I turn the washer off it will keep dripping out of the fill tube at the back of the washer. It will fill the washer tub half full


Hi and welcome to FixYa I am Kelly
Here is what you can do to try and remove the debris from inside the water valve assembly.

-Turn off BOTH wall hose connections
-Remove ONE hose assembly completely and also remove the screen from the hose connection area of the water valve by using a thin knife blade on the outside of the screen
-Leaving the screen removed connect ONE hose to the water valve hand tight and place the free end in a bucket.
-Turn on the remaining wall connection water hose
-Select WARM wash and start washer fill cycle
-Tap on the water valve FILL HOSE fitting for about 20 seconds (Your trying to loosen / remove debris) Do NOT use a hammer.... (Handle ok) but be serious with your tapping.

STOP FILL CYCLE
-Reinstall the removed inlet screen and connect hose to water valve and wall connection.
Repeat procedure for the 2nd hose.

This will clear about 50% of the water fill problems. If it does not cease the dripping while off routine you will have to replace the water valve assembly (Item 17) This link: http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=5177917&diagram_id=1341192#d1341192

Water drip


There is a water fill valve that allows water in, mixes cold and hot water or shuts it off. Its location is where the hot and cold water hoses connect to the washer.
Get the model number off the machine and go to the web site below and you can see the valve and also the cost of the valve should you choose to fix it.

My Kenmore top loading washing machine is leaking from the bottom. The water is dripping from the bottom of the front panel. What needs to be fixed and how do I do it?


This symptom usually indicates that you have a failed inlet solenoid water valve assembly. Completely unplug the washer from the electrical supply and see if the water stops filling. If it does, then you likely have a control board failure. This is rare but possible. If the water continues to fill with the washer unplugged from electricity, I recommend shutting off the hot and cold water supply faucets behind the washer. It is likely that the water will stop filling the washer. This would indicate that you have a failed water valve assembly.

Water Level and Water continues to drip after cycle has ended.


The water dripping into the tub is caused by the fill valve solenoid not closing completely. The fix is to replace the fill valve. The overfilling of the washer is caused by the pressure switch. Over time the diaphram within the pressure switch becomes fatiqued & fails. The fix for this is to replace it as well... Hope this helps... Bill

Water Dripping


you need a new fill valve, even if you ulplug the washer does it still drip? If yes then you do need a new fill valve. Just turn water off at the wall so your machine don't overfill.

Washer tub slowly fills with water


Is your problem a SLOW FILL problem, or a problem with WATER DRIPPING FROM THE RUBBER DOOR SEAL - or BOTH? If you have a slow fill problem, this is generally caused by a bad fill valve, which can be attributed to hard water deposits or well water mineral deposits. Sometimes the fill valve can be removed, cleaned and reinstalled, but most of the time a new fill valve is required. If you are experiencing water leaking from the rubber door seal (bellow), it may be time to replace it. Sometimes the seal can develop a wrinkle or crease where it meets the glass, which can cause leaks. Water dripping from the door when you open after washing a load is normal. Water dripping during a load is NOT. The bellow may also have started to rip or tear inside the door which may not be noticeable until you pull the folds of the bellow back and look underneath it. I hope this helps.
