Cylon, sounds like you need to replace the water inlet valve. It's not seating and weeping water. For series 10 the part number would be 40097701. Not that hard of a job. Catriver..post back.

SOURCE: Washer wont work.
does it sound like it doing something??trying to agitate?? can you spin out the water??. if not id look to possible bad lid switch, open adn close the lid a few times, can you herea distinct "clicking" sound just prior to the lid closing??? if not you nave a bad lid switch. acesses by removing the front cover panels, and removing screws holding down main lid, lid then tips back giving you acesss to the switch itself

take the front panel off, two screws at the bottom of the front panel, probably a 5/16 nut driver will work. You will need a flash light. partially fill the washer with water and then turn it to spin.
Look up underneath the tub and see where the water is leaking from. If its coming from above the bearing you need a seal job.
Bearing, seal kit, not cheap, how old is the machine, time to buy a new one?

One of the solenoids in part #8181694 is not closing completely. This part is easy to replace.
1. Turn off the water from both inlets and unplug the machine.
2. Unscrew the hot/cold from the machine. You may want to use a bucket to collect the 2 cups of water that will pour out of the hoses.
3. From the rear of the machine, use a #20 torx head to remove the 5 bolts holding the top cover.
4. Slide the cover back and lift to remove.
5. See the attached picture. The red arrow in the upper left corner points to the inlet valve.
6. Note the color of the electric connections. The white plugs are on the right. The black on the left. Unplug these.
7. From the rear of the machine, remove the #20 torx bolt which holds the valve in place.
8. Using pliers, pinch the hose clamp and pull the rubber hose from the inlet valve.
9. Lift out the inlet valve.
10. OPTIONAL : Connect the valve to a garden hose using a female/female hose bib. See the attached picture. Turn the part upsidedown and shake it. This will loosen the solenoid and some water will squirt out. Turn it rightside up and see if the valve seals itself. Repeat if necessary. Repeat on the other inlet. In the picture you can see the leak coming from the valve.
