This problem is commonly attributed to a water inlet valve leaking by or a pressure switch malfunction. The following link explains how to diagnose the problem:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3753262-front_load_washer_fills_when_not_in_use

If you live in an area that has hard water, or if you use well water, the water inlet valve can clog with sediment, rust, or calcified deposits over time causing the valve not to close properly. This can cause leak by when not in use.

The pressure switch has a small air hose attached that, if it has any holes in it, will cause the pressure switch to malfunction. This can also result in a washer that fills when not in use, but will also cause the washer to overfill in most cases.

Read through the link provided and let me know if you need further assistance. I have included parts resources and procedures on how to replace each part in the link. If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

Water is in the washer the next morning


The inlet solenoid valve is dirty and doesn't shut off completely so there is a tiny leak over time. Generally this will get worse over time. You can simply turn off the water at the tap after each use or replace the solenoid, pretty cheap part. Some solenoids can be opened and clean the grit out.

Leaking water inlet valve. Turn hot water valve off one night n see wether any water in drum in morning. Then try turning cold valve off at hose as well to see which one is letting the water in. Either way its only a $5 dollar bit thats passing water
