This is usually an indication of a defective water inlet valve (also known as a fill valve or mixing valve). This is a fairly simple repair that you can perform yourself. If you can post back with your complete model number (located around the door opening), I can track down a part number for you.

Kenmore washer 110.44832200 When machine is setting, water slowly fills to door level in 2 or three days. Any idea on solution?

If it is filling up with water when the machine is not on, it sounds like the water inlet valve is leaking. Normally no water should enter the machine if it is not running. It is a relatively easy repair. Just remove the hoses from the back, remove the back panel and it the part where the hoses attach. You can get a replacement part from your local appliance supply house or online such as Hope this helps you.
