Your solonoid is in need of a service. Tilt the washer sideways after you unplug it and remove the water pipes. Once disconnected, undo a nut or two holding the plate in position.and remove water valve from machine. Possibly you can remove both water pipes from the valve assembly without going in from underneath. Once loose, use appropriate screwdriver or socket spanner and carefully strip the valve. Clean dirty area untill all particles are removed. reassemble and retry..

You have a bad water valve and that's why the water is still coming in after you turn the washer off. Replace the valve and you should be fine.REMEMBER to unplug the machine before doing anything.

Water is continually leaking into the tub from the inlets as a slow drip. This happens while the washer is off and continues forever unless the water supply is turned off. This is a stackable washer/dryer.


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.

Leaks badly


Most dish washers do not seal at the bottom, the door lip just sits
in front of the tub lip and does not make a real tight seal like a refrigerator door, so unless water is spraying out the top and sides of the door,I would assume that it is either overflowing,or you are using the wrong detergent and it is just foaming to much inside the washer and going over the lip and dripping on the floor. Once the suds stop getting agitated then turn back to water and don't look like suds.
So if you watch the washer during the cycle and the water s only coming from the bottom it is the water level switch inside on right
in the front,looks like a mushroom, once the washer reaches a certain level of water this switch floats up and shuts off the water to stop it from filling anymore. If this seems to be the case just remove the front bottom kick panel and you should be able to see the switch, watch it when the washer is filling,you can also push up on the little arm and the water should shut off. Post back with any questions.

Water drips in the tub


a faulty inlet water valve on the machine itself, just not seating properly allowing water to flow after shutting off, turning off water inbetween washes a good temp fix as well as a good habit to get into
