Djam919,

Your water valve may be leaking. Can you tell if the water dripping is hot or cold?
Some washing machines have one dual valve for hot and cold water, and some will have separate valves. You must remove the top of your unit to find out if your have one or two valves.
To remove the top of the machine you need to remove 3 screws on the back of the unit at the very top, then the top should slide towards the back of the machine ( with a litle push ), now lift the top off the unit.

To determine what valve to replace first you must look on the back of you washer and locate the hot and cold connections, then shut off the one of the water lines coming to your machine at the wall valve, if it continue leaking then you can tell that the opposite valve is the problem. ( wait for about 10 min to make sure that the water leaking isn't just left over water in the hose).

Good Luck

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.

Washer fills with clean water when off. Water drips from top, behind door hinge from spout.


Your washer is filling up to much. The pressure value switch, the hose that connects to the outer tub.

My whirlpool duet washer is filling with water when it is off. it only drips, but two days in a row it was filled up above the bottom of the door openeing and spilled on the floor,


This problem is either attributed to a defective water inlet valve, or defective pressure switch. An easy way to determine which one may be causing the problem is to unplug the washer, but leave the water taps on. If the washer continues to fill, you have a defective water inlet valve. If the water stops, I would recommend changing your pressure switch.

Post back and let me know if you require further assistance. I hope this helps you.

When not in use, my washer begins to slowly fill with water.


you either have a very poor water pressure to the machine or the fill valve is not closing completely and will need to be replaced.

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.

Washer tub slowly fills with water


Is your problem a SLOW FILL problem, or a problem with WATER DRIPPING FROM THE RUBBER DOOR SEAL - or BOTH? If you have a slow fill problem, this is generally caused by a bad fill valve, which can be attributed to hard water deposits or well water mineral deposits. Sometimes the fill valve can be removed, cleaned and reinstalled, but most of the time a new fill valve is required. If you are experiencing water leaking from the rubber door seal (bellow), it may be time to replace it. Sometimes the seal can develop a wrinkle or crease where it meets the glass, which can cause leaks. Water dripping from the door when you open after washing a load is normal. Water dripping during a load is NOT. The bellow may also have started to rip or tear inside the door which may not be noticeable until you pull the folds of the bellow back and look underneath it. I hope this helps.
