Check the water inlet valve. Remove the water supply hoses and check the small screens inside the openings on the water inlet valve. Make sure the screens are there and that they are clear of rust or debris. The solenoids can be tested using a multimeter or ohmmeter. Check for continuity. A lack of continuity indicates a bad solenoid and the water inlet valve assy will need replaced. I will attach a photo for reference. If this not where the leak is occurring, please let me know. Hope this helped and best wishes.

My defy front loader filled up with water at 2am last night while not in use...flooding my kitchen. the machine tap is always left open, but is active only when the machine has been switched on???


the water inlet valve is faulty and is not closing fully when powered off causing a small but constant stream of water coming into the machine until it floods out the front, you will need to replace the water inlet valve, in the meantime turn the taps off when your not using it

How to fix a Washing Machine if it is leaking


Leaking water from a washing machine usually comes from hoses or connections. Be sure that water appearing to be a leak isn’t drain water from a backed-up standpipe. To prevent potential flood damage, which can occur if washing machine supply hoses burst, be sure to install “no-burst” stainless-steel mesh hoses and lever-type shutoff valves, as shown below. With these, you can easily turn off the levers for both hot and cold water between wash days. 1) Check the fittings where the hoses connect to the faucets and to the back of the washing machine. Also look for worn or leaky hoses. Tighten couplings or hose clamps if needed, or replace the hoses altogether. Be sure to turn the water off before removing the hoses, and drain them into a bucket after disconnecting them.
2) Determine whether the machine is oversudsing, which can cause it to overflow. Reduce suds by pouring in 1/2 cup white vinegar in 1 quart water. Then switch to either less detergent or a low-sudsing variety.
3) The machine may have a faulty basket gasket or tub seal and bearing that must be replaced; in this case, call an appliance repairperson.

Water is entering the washer, when not in use.


The solenoids on your machine that let the water flow in are obviously leaking, but in my opinion not enough to be a real issue. It is always safe practice to turn off water sources to your washer at the fawcets after use, this can also save you from a possible flood if the hoses burst from age and deterioration. You should have a repair tech fix the solenoids though. But you can get away with that for a while if you turn off the water.

WASHER LEAKING ALL OVER THE PLACE


your float system is malfunctioning. This is a system in place to tell the machine when to stop taking in water at whatever level you set it to. Its either a rubber hose system or sometimes an electrical float switch.

I have a bosch wfk 5730 washing machine has been very reliable but now continuously keeps taking water in to machine, at timer position "F", just before the final spinning cycle begins, till it...


Could be an iffy valve/ solenoid. One test is to see the empty machine slowly fills up with water, if you leave it for a few days. You can isolate teach valve by turning each feed off in turn. i t could be leaking all through the cycle. If it is flooding during the spin I'd check your pump at well. Hope this helps.
