Water drips continously into my washing machine even though I am not running the washer. It eventually fills up and I have to run the spin cycle to empty the washer. Why is it dripping when the washer is not turned on and would I need to call a washing machine repair man or plumber for this problem?
COLD WATER DOES NOT SEEM TO COME OUT WHEN TRYING TO WASH, BUT WHEN NOT IN USE IT FILLS WITH WATER AND I HAVE TO USE THE SPIN CYCLE TO EMPTY OR IT WILL OVER FLOW,

Re: water in my washing machine
It sounds like you have a leaking water valve, you will have to replace the mixing valve, For now turn the water off at the wall suppling water to the machine. When you want to use the washer turn on water, when its done with the cycle turn the water off.
Note: unplugging the machine will not stop the water from running

It may be the water inlet valve is not shutting off the flow 100%. If water keeps trickling in, even dripping, it will eventually fill the drum. Some models have a water level sensor that will run unit thru a drain cycle to prevent an overflow situation. Try checking the unit every 6 or 8 hours to see if there is a slow build up of water accumulation. Replace inlet valve if there is.
Hello there: If your cycle does not complete or The cycle doesn't advanceWhen the cycle should advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:It's
the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins
agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin
cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer. It
may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with
water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse
water. than check the cold water supply line and the filter
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. http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/
Good luck, let me know.
