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.

I have a Kenmore top load washing machine and it is dripping water inside. Do i need to replace a valve or a gasket?


Until you find out why it is dripping turn off the water behind the washer. Then I would go and search online typing in the browser search "Kenmore top load washing machine model no _____ leaking - what is causing this?" and hit enter. You will get lots of leads. I did a quick search just on Kenmore top load washer leaking and found this video.


Hope it helps.

After washer has stopped, it contunes to drip inside the tube


Hi,

Start the washer in a normal cycle, once it starts to fill, unplug the unit from the wall. If the water stops completely its not a water valve issue. If it still drips, replace the water valve to the washer. Good Luck

Water continously drips from somewhere under console into the tub


This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

Enter your model number (###.######) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

Look at the components for the Rear Panel. It could be that your "Inlet Valve" is worn.

See the following for how to remove the cabinet:

And a diagram of the console with the inlet valve.

Maytag atlantas top loader water keeps dripping from top of drum


Your water inlet valve is probably leaking by. If the water pressure is too, or if there is sediment build inside the valve, sometimes the solenoids will not close properly. Try cleaning the valve to see if this helps. If not, I would recommend replacing it. Depending on which valve you have, repairclinic.com has two listed for this model washer for $20 to $30. Let me know if this helps, or if you need further assistance.

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.
