Our Whirpool Duet washer basket (drum) appears with water a day or so after the last time it was used. After the wash\rinse cycle, the basket is dry and the clothes do not have excess water. The problem comes a few days later, when we find clean water in the basket. Could it be a faulty fill valve? Please help.

Re: Water in the baskedt
Yes it is the problem replace the water inlet valve
this is done by removing the top you will see the valve that the fill hoses connect to
make a diagram of the connections so that you get it right when you reassemble the unit

when the machine is stopped can you empty the residue water that remains by the programme selector? if not check for blockage in the pump(coin), the hose internal blockage ,or at the outlet under sink. I hope this help
Sounds like you have a seal issue. Try and shut the water from the back connection off after you do a load. I believe that it sounds like you have a leak from the gasket and it is letting water in when you don't want it there. If the water isnt there then we have narrowed the issue. Please let me know what happens. Hope it helps!
Using the wrong kind of detergent in your fancy front loader is a great way to grunge up your washer and impart some oder onto your clothes. And it accelerates the mechanical deterioration of your washer. 2. Using too much fabric softener and/or detergent.
Liquid fabric softener does not break down very well in cold water and the residue collects on the outer tub and basket along with the lint left from the wash. We professionals refer to this accumulated as grunge. Once formed, this grunge collects ever more additional soap, dirt, grease, human waste, mites, , parasites... and then some really bad stuff.
As it turns out, this grunge makes a perfect substrate for microbial life forms. Over some time- not very much time in warmer climates- those little bacterial colonies build up lots of microbial sewage, just like we do until one day you open the door to the washer
Using too much fabric softener will waterproof your clothes. How clean do you think your clothes will get if they repel water inside the washing machine? 3. Doing all your wash loads in cold water only.
Detergents don't dissolve as well in cold water. As a result, cold water washes leave behind more grunge. So... do an occasional wash in hot water. OK, maybe more than occasional. Like, I hope you at least wash your skivvies in hot water. 4. Leaving clothes in the washer at the end of the cycle.
Front loaders don't have as much access to open air as top load machines. Consequently, leaving clothes in the washer for more than eight hours will increase mold and mildew build up. 1. Add one additional gallon of hot water to the unit before sending it into a hot wash. This will raise the water level high enough to remove the Grunge Hiding Behind the Basket 2. Same as 1 but with bleach added to all dispensers. Clean the fabric softener cup with a rag first (bleach will not break up fabric softener since it is introduced in the rinse cycle with the fabric softener). 3. Same as1 and2 but with a cap full of pine cleaner added to the wash water (NOT the dispenser). Add some old rags (they don`t need to be dirty) and select the extra rinse cycle. The wash action will help remove the accumulated grunge from the components
Once again, make sure you're only using high efficiency (HE) detergents in your front loader.
if your hearing clackling try and clean the pump and the hose leading into the pump for a coin ,,small ,,(dime),,,hair clip,,also its a must that you use he detergent,,or you sude up,,if you do use he your using to much,,now bleach the unit out on a normal cycle hot wash cold rinse with about a pint of bleach...and no you can purchase part of a pump..it comes as you see it in unit..onthejob
Thinking of 2 things either the transmission is out or the clutch is
burnt out and the drum basket and possibly the drive shaft broken as
well. Prices vary greatly by how many of these things are broken but
should run between 100-200 including labor.
I believe there is either a loose pulley or on the other side of the pulley spindle is a spoke assembly that holds the basket on is broken. If you see water leaking at the spindle you have bearing and seals that have faulted. Either one of the last two are expensive to fix, if you have a home warranty that blankets your appliances with a deductible I would recomend getting a tech out to fix those problems.
