Question about Hoover Washing Machines
Hi. I take it that the machine is of the condenser - dryer type?
In these machines, during the drying cycle, warm air is circulated inside the drum and a cold plate is either splashed with cold water or has cold water running through it, causing moisture from the clothes to condense on the cold plate - just like moisture in a room condenses on a cold window pane on cold days.
If your machine is continuing to fill up slowly with water after it has been switched off, then I would suspect the cold water inlet valve isn't closing properly. This is likely due to a build up of grit inside the valve.
If you turn off the cold water supply you will be able to remove the cold supply pipe from the machine and - hopefully - see some of the grit on the filter gauze. The grit possibly causing your problem is already inside the elcetically controlled inlet valve, so it may need to be removed and cleaned or replaced.
You should be able to check if this is the problem by just turning off the cold water supply to the machine. No supply means no water can get into the machine, so it shouldn't fill up overnight.
Before removing the filter down at the bottom of the machine you could turn the machine on to a spin or pump out cycle - that way you shouldn't need wellington boots when you removed the filter :-)
Hope this helps a bit. If not, add a comment and I will try to help you further. D.
