Question about Kenmore Washing Machines

1 Answer

When the washing machine is off, water continues to slowly drip inside the washing machine. If we turn off the water where the hoses are connected to the wall, the dripping stops. Any idea what might be causing this?

Could be a build up of limescale inside the water inlet valves stopping them from sealing properly when they close. Unless you feel confident enough to take it apart you should get an engineer in to look at it.

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.

Slow drip of water inside the drum. Don't see no moisture but I can hear it dripping. No Moisture on the floor. Any ideas where it could be dripping from?


Turn the water faucets off and listen for the drip to stop.
If the dripping noise stops,replace the water inlet valve on the washer were the hoses connect.
Enter your model number in the site referenced here for parts.

Water continues to drip into the washer when it is finished with cycle and turned off


Water valve is located at the rear of the machine with the water hoses attached to it. Disconnect power. Remove hoses and unscrew the small angled bracket attached to the valve. Replace the valve and your problem will be solved. Part Number is 2200270. This the only possible cause for the symptom you describe.

Check the water inlet valve. Remove the water supply hoses and check the small screens inside the inlet valve. Make sure they are clear of rust or debris. Next, check the solenoids. They can be tested using a multimeter or ohmmeter. Check for continuity. A lack of continuity means a bad solenoid. I will attach a photo for reference. Sure hope this helps and best wishes.

Water drip


There is a water fill valve that allows water in, mixes cold and hot water or shuts it off. Its location is where the hot and cold water hoses connect to the washer.
Get the model number off the machine and go to the web site below and you can see the valve and also the cost of the valve should you choose to fix it.
