Hmmm...pipe problems outside the washer, or inside? that shutoff is a combination of a detector switch, a relay, and a valve, which depends on the other two, of course.

Water slow coming into the tub this happens every time you turn on the washer. We cleaned the screens


Check the water inlet pipe is not kinked or blocked. If you can turn water off, remove pipe, place pipe end in bucket, turn water back on, check flow from the pipe to eliminate it. If not that, then the water control valve in the machine might want replacing. By the way, those horrible "quick connectors" that are sometimes used to screw on to the water pipes, can corrode over the internal hole, and prevent good flow, so replace with a proper washing machine valve, and TEE connector.

The washing machine barrel fills up with water even after the wash has finished and all clothes removed, why?


The water inlet valve is passing a little water through in the unenergized state. Turn the water supply valves off and wait. If the filling up stops replace the machine's inlet valve and if you can, flush your water pipes and water heater before hooking the washer back up

My washing machine is leaking water even with the water shut off and the amchine not running. Is this a drain pipe problem or a oump proplem or another problem?


Hello there
whaen awashing machine does not stop putting water into a machine even after it has stopped then this means that the water fill valve needs to be replaced or repaired this valve has 2 small solinoid valves on it one for hot and one for cold and over time they will start to fail and the result is water entering the machine even after it is off looks like this b9e1869.jpg

The water comes in even when the machine is off.


if water is entering when the machine is off, saounds as if the water inlet valve is notoperating correctly and you would need to replace it.. its where you screw you inlet hoses to the machine.

Hot water goes into cold water washes


It is normal for the machine to cycle between hot and cold water when filling even if selecting a cold cycle. The reason for this is because even a cold cycle requires the water temperature to be 78F for the soap to break up efficiently.

During the cold months the water in your pipes is probably less than 78F so the machine will need to add some hot water to bring it up to this temperature. Basically, it is adding cold and then hot water to maintain a temperature in the tub of 78F for cold water cycles.

Hope this helps, please rate my solution.

Washing machine leaking at the connection to water pipe.


Hi vks1,

Your water is coming out into the washer even when you water supply is switched off at the pipe?

Disconnect the washer hose from the water pipe and see if the water still comes out of the water pipe even when the water valve is shut off!
If the answer is YES!

This is a plumbing malfunction.
The valve on your water pipe is not closing completely!
There is a washer in the water valve attached to the end of the valve stem that more than likely needs replacement.

And not a washer malfunction.


If I understand your explanation correctly this is the cause.

If this is not the problem then the washer has a water inlet that is stuck open.

But this dose not make sense if the external water valve is shut off there should not be water reaching the washer inlet faulty or not!

I believe I figured out the problem for you and you will be fine when the valve is fixed or the valve stem replaced!
Bless You,

Washing machine filling with water when switched off


Electric inlet valve doesn't close properly. You should get it replaced ASAP. It is a cheap part and quite easily replaceable. Turn off water to your machine until you fix this and keep it unplugged.
