Question about Whirlpool Washing Machines

1 Answer

I have a whirlpool duet washer and it fills with water on its own. The machine has done it with the door closed and with the door open. The machine is turned off during all of the occasions as well. The machine has done this about four or five times now in the last month.

Most likely a faulty controller so call in a repair man to replce it asap before your house floods...on its own.

Duet front load - water fills while door is open!


This is a leaking solonoid valve.
The valves are located just inside the machine where the water supply hoses attach.
  • Remove the power plug
  • Undo the top lid of the washer
  • The valves will have some internal pipes clamped on their outlets. Remove the pipes.
  • Dry the valve outlets with tissue.
  • Turn on the water supply to the washer (if it was off)
  • Watch the open valve outlets for seepage.

There may be between 1 and 3 valves depending on the model.
You should be able to replace the leaking valve quite easily.

My Whirlpool duet front load washer fills randomly with water when not in use and the door is open. Usually it only fills up to the door opening but this morning it was over flowing. ??????


check and make sure you do not have a siphoning problem. make sure the drain isn't backing up in the machine. This could also be a problem with the water inlet valve. Its possible that its not closing all the way when the machine is off. If its dirty water entering washer then the problem is siphoning from the drain. If its clean watet the valve is bad.

I went to put laundry in the empty washer to find it was filled with water. Why would it fill up with water while just sitting unused (and the door partiallly open - I have always had to leave the door...


It sounds like you have a failing inlet valve. The inlet valves have springs that push them closed when the machine doesn't require water. When you start a load of clothes, the machine controller sends electricity to the inlet valves. The electricity (via magnetism) overcomes the springs and opens the valves. Your valves aren't closing all the way due to them either failing or having a foreign object holding them open.

In either case, you need to replace the inlet valve assembly ASAP. Failure to replace these valves could result in your machine flooding- not a good situation.

Good luck.

Duet whirlpool washer mysteriously floods the floor when we are gone. It happens when door is closed or open. Even when empty and off. 4 times now!


I had the same problem, found it at about 2 am. No fun. Pretty easy fix. The part on the back of the washer where you screw in the water lines in needs replaced. Its been 2 years but I think it only took about 30 mins to fix once I had the part. Remove the top of the washer (couple screws in back) The part that the hoses screw into has a wire that goes to it that opens/closes the vaule when it needs water, its not closing all the way and water is continuing to fill. Good luck, think the part was about $50 or so. I would shut off the water at the wall in between washings until its fixed, and when on vacation. The hoses always have water in them if the. good luck

Wash machine is filling with water when the washer is off.


You probably need to replace the water inlet solenoid valves which may be stuck open. Turn off one hose at a time to find out if both or just one is causing the problem.

Whirlpool Duet GHW9100LW1 fills up with power off


You have a faulty fill valve

If you want to check which one, try turning off the cold supply only before you go to bed

If the washer has water in it next morning it is the hot valve that has gone faulty if it is dry then it is the cold one

They are easy to change and can be bought from a number of suppliers

Fills on its own door open or closed


I would bet the water inlet valve is weeping. It may not seal shut every time. It could have a piece of rest stuck in it also. It's cheap and easy to replace. The part # AP3128776.
