My fisher and paykel GWL15 is dripping water from the top where the water comes from. What is the name of the part that needs to be replaced?


Sounds much like the rubber diaphragm in the water inlet valve is split, which means that as long as the water tap is on you will get that drip drip drip of water into the machine.
You can still use the machine until you fix the problem, but the most obvious short term thing to do is to turn the water taps off when the machine is not in use.
To determine which machine inlet valve is leaking, turn on both taps, then turn off, first the HOT water tap as this is more often than not the least used. If the leaking persists, then it is the Cold Water Inlet Valve you need to replace on your machine.
While this repair can be done by a suitably skilled handyman, I always urge caution, because the average guy may just not have as well instilled "Safety Consciousness" as the professional technician who does this sort of thing all the time.
Remember, you are dealing with 240v A.C. which can deliver a LETHAL shock.......so unplug the power cord when doing any work as the least of safety steps to take. It only takes one forgetful mistake which could result in injury or worse!

Ice maker is leaking water at the rear of the ice maker, somewhere around the water inlet. Water is dripping slowly and building up an ice ***** BEHIND (outside) the ice cube storage bin AND inside the...


Hello,The reason all the ice freezes together and you see icecicles forming from the icemaker,is going to caused by the water inlet valve on the back of the refrig.is not fully closing but instead it's seeping water through it and dripping into the ice storage bucket. To stop that from happening the water inlet valve would need to be replaced.
On refrigerators that have a built in water filter,alot of times their will be 2 water valves and the one that is bad causing water to seep through it will be the one called the SECONDARY valve.

The washer fills slowly with water when not in use. It drains without any problem when drain/spin cycle is used.


Most likely the water inlet valves on your washing machine have failed. You may have noticed larger amounts of water in the clothes drum when the washing machine hasn't been used for a few days, this is because the valves may still be open allowing water to drip into the clothes drum.

Here is a link to the part that you need to buy: http://www.appliancepartspros.com/Appliance-Parts/WHIRLPOOL-Washer-water-inlet-valve--universal-item-number-AP3098982.aspx.

And a link to a video showing you how to replace the part: http://www.ultimatehandyman.org/video/appliance_repair/water-inlet-valve.php
Hope this helps!

Our machine keeps dripping water once load is finished. We have turned off water and checked hoses as well as the water inlet valve. Everything looks fine. It is only when the hot water is on, I shut...


I would replace the inlet valves. Even though the issue is only a drip now, the failing hot water inlet will drip enough water to overflow and flood your floor if left unattended. The failure code you see is because the washer senses the water connections. It is telling you that there's no hot water available. Replace the valve- soon.

Good luck.

When washer finishes cycle and spins out water will start dripping into the washer and will get the clothes wet if not taken out


You have a faulty water inlet valve which needs to be replaced. If it's cold water dripping into the machine then it's the cold water inlet valve.

Water drips into the tub from the inlet


Good day,
If water constantly runs or drips into the tub,even if the machine is off, then the water valve in the back of the machine, has one of the seals failing, and the water valve needs to be replaced.
