Water drips (tiny drop) slowly from top of washing machine when the machine is off (not from where the water comes from when it is on...but from that same direction). What could be the problem? (Maytag Atlantic Over size plus (loaded from top)). Thanks.

Check the water inlet valve. Remove the water supply hoses and check the small screens inside the inlet valve. Make sure they are clear of rust or debris. Next, check the solenoids. They can be tested using a multimeter or ohmmeter. Check for continuity. A lack of continuity means a bad solenoid. I will attach a photo for reference. Sure hope this helps and best wishes.

The leak may be due to a clogged weep passage that resides behind the brew group and empties into the drip tray in the front. Take a long piece of wire or a good paperclip and straighten it out. Take some hot soapy water and a small syringe and wash that area out with the drip tray installed. As for the coffee coming out too slowly, you may want to adjust the grinder to a more coarse grind by one or two clicks. After each single adjustment to the grinder, it will take two brew cycles to catch up to the adjustment. Don't make too many adjustments without running at least two cycles in between each adjustment. If that does not solve the problem, you may need to take it to the repair center nearest you to have them check out the pump.

My ge top load washer will not allow cold water through it just drips out slowly. water comes out the water line but for some reason the machine wont let it through

Could be a clogged screen on the back of the inlet valve. If you have hard water and no water softener, especially likely. Turn off the water at the water, remove the cold water hose from the back of the machine and see if there is an accumulation of white crumbly material just inside the body of the valve. If so, carefully remove it, then use a screwdriver to remove the protective screeen inside the valve. It is a press fit and will come out with a little effort. Do not puncture it. Clean and reinstall, hook up the hose and turn on the water. Check for leaks and you should be back in business.

it sounds is if you have a possible crack in the water supply area. if the hoses are good, tight and dry, inspect the housing base they screw into.
