Very possible your household drain pipe is almost the same size as the washers drain pipe. The house hold pipe should be approximately twice the diameter so as to allow equalising air in while water is being expelled from the washer. If at any time there is water flowback, it wont be forced into the washer pipe as it will now have an air gap.

Why is the washer slowly leaking water into the back of tub between washes?


There is grit in the water valve holding it open just enough to allow the water to seep by. You should get a filter system for your washer and replace the water valve, Grit is not covered by most warranties.

If you have the capability its probably a leaking seal on the water input line at thetop of the water. Often its a simple hoseclamp that needs tightening. Without looking myself thats the easiest solution. Hope this helps!

Water that seeps into washer after cycle is done


Hi, If you are getting water in the tub when the washer is off, you will need a new inlet mixer valve. You can test this by tirning the water off at the wall and see if any water seeps in. If you would get me a model #, Icould look this up for you.
Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Your inlet valve at behind top of machine is defective; or the pressure from your faucet is insufficient.

Close your faucet valve on wall & unscrew your hoses to check screens on hoses & machine. Clean out well. See that the water pressure is good. Refit, check for leaks. If this is not the problem change your inlet valve, it is easily done.
