Question about Whirlpool LSR8233J

LSR8233JQ washer water drips into tub from fill port

I have a seven year old washer, recently we noticed that the water never shuts off, even if the machine is shut off. It isn't a steady stream, but it never seems to stop dripping. Overnight we'll get around 2-3" of water in the bottom of the tub. Recently we had problems with our well and got some silt and mud into the home water lines. That has been flushed out now but I am wondering if the fill valve could be damaged somehow.

    After running the washer a couple loads the leaking problem has stopped, however there is another problem. When the initial filling of water is occurring the water pressure is fine, however when the rinse cycle is starting there is barely a trickle of water, it takes forever to fill the tub to the point that the rinse cycle actually starts.

Yes the fill valve has been damaged by the silt. If you remove the hoses from the valve you will probably notice that there is either one or both steel screens missing from valve body. You cant remove the screens if they get clogged.

Water continues to drip into the tub even after all cycles have completed. my tub is filling up with water, I have turned off the water to the machine but it continues.


The water inlet valve needs to be replaced. It's not shutting off the water completely. It's located where the water hoses connect to the washer.

Water leaks (drips ) into tub after cycle/spin is complete


You have a bad pressure switch or the small hose connecting to the pressure switch may be bad

If the washer leaks water when is filling only, check the following: 1.Fill hoses
2.The water mixing valve

3.Filling injector ( If your washer uses one )
4.Filling spout


If the washing machine leaks during the wash cycle, check the following:
1.The pump
2.The tub stem & seal
3.Tub to pump hose
4.The drain hose
5.Tub (rusted holes)
6.The drum support bolts


If the washing machine leaks during the spin cycle, check the following:
1.The drain hose
2.The tub cover seal
3.The pump
4.The pump hoses

5.The stem & seal
6.The drum support bolts

Have a hotpoint top loading that A..would not stop filling even unplugged, and B. will not drain/spin. Hence, ended up with a flooded room while I was trying to get the water turned off. Any easy way to...


Hi
If your washer is overfilling, check these:
Water-inlet valve
Water-level switch
Water-inlet valve A defect in the water-inlet valve may mean that it's no longer able to shut off completely when the electricity has been turned off to it. If this occurs, the valve may leak and drip water into the clothes tub. In time, the water may accumulate substantially. If this happens, you need to replace the valve.
Water-level switch A defect--or an obstruction--in the water-level switch may mean that it can't tell the water to shut off. So the machine overflows. This switch senses the water level in the clothes tub. It's usually a diaphragm device with a small, clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level in the tub increases, the pressure on the air in the tube increases. When the pressure reaches a certain level, it activates the switch, shuts off the water, and signals the timer to begin the agitate cycle. You can either clear any obstruction in the tube or replace the water-level switch.
When it doesnt spin or drain...

The drain line is probably clogged. Maybe that a sock or other piece of clothing get between the clothes tub and the outer tub that holds the water. In this case it may then get into the drain hose that's attached to the pump.Remove the hoses from the pump and pull the item out. In case it clean there, check the outer tub port- open the washer's main access panel and remove the large-diameter rubber hose that connects the pump to the bottom of the outer tub. Then,try to remove the clothing through the port.
Thanks for contacting fixya.com

Washer over fills and water comes out the door. Water continues to run even durring the pump out cycle just before the spin cycle


  1. Water inlet valve. It may not be able to shut completely when the electricity to it has been turned off. The valve may leak and drip water into the clothes tub. Water may accumulate substantially and overflow. Remove the washer's cabinet to access it.
  2. Water level switch. This switch senses the water level in the clothes tub. It is usually a diaphragm device with a small clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level in the tub increases, the air pressure in the tube increases and activates the switch when the water reaches a certain level. When the switch is obstructed, it cannot tell the water to shut off and the machine overflows.Clear it from any obstruction.
  3. Air-hose. It is connected to the water level switch through a tube. If the tube or hose is cracked or broken, no enough pressure builds up to trigger the switch and shut the water supply off. Check it for any obvious damage.

Water Dripping


you need a new fill valve, even if you ulplug the washer does it still drip? If yes then you do need a new fill valve. Just turn water off at the wall so your machine don't overfill.

underneath the agitator is a graphite seal ring and nut that seals the inner tub and the outer tub. a suitable spanner wrench or a 6 inch channel lock plier will remove this locknut. replace the seal.
