Sounds like a fill hose problem. You can turn off your water supply valves and remove the hoses from the washer. Then, remove the screens inside of the inlet valves and clean them. Hook everything back up and give it a try.

Good luck.

Hello ,after using the machine, water keep dripping inside even I'm not using it, it has been doing that for several weeks, thanks for your help. alex


Hi Alex. Welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly.

Water leaking by when the unit is supposed to be off is caused by water leaking by the inlet water valve diaphram.

Here is what you can do in an attempt to clear any internal debris of the water valve.

Both wall faucets off
1. Disconnect One hose from the water valve and remove the inlet screen by using a knife blade on the outer edge of the screen.
2, Reconnect that hose to the water valve.
3. Place the wall end of the hose in a bucket
4. Turn on the water at the wall for the hose that is still connected to the wall.
4. Select WARM wash and start a fill cycle. (Water will back flush into the bucket.
5. Use a hammer HANDLE and tap the hose connections of the water valve. (Your trying to losen the debris)
6. After a minute turn off the warm fill and the water faucet at the wall.
7. Disconnect the removed hose from the water valve and install the inlet screen AFTER cleaning the screen.
8 Reconnect the hose to the water valve and the wall connection.
9. Repeat steps 1 - 8 for remaining side.

If this does not stop the water drip then the water valve will have to be changed.

I will repost later the water valve part number and source.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

When my son's new Kenmore washer is filling up it starts off with the water rushing in like it should but after about a minute the flow falls back to almost nothing and it takes forever to fill up.


For low water volume - or "Trickling" effect...

1. Turn off the water supply to both hoses.
2. Remove hoses (one at a time so you don't get them confused)
3. On the washer side - look for a removeable screen inside wher you just removed the hose.
4. Using a small screwdriver - pop out the screen and reverse-flush it/clean it. It will likely be full of sediment and calcium deposits from your pipes.
5. Replace the inlet screens.
6. Re-fit the hose to the machine.
7. Turn on water supply valves.
8. re-try.

Water dripping


Turn the water off at supply valve, this will stop the water. Then you will need to replace the fill valves on the washer.

Slow drip near back of lid


Hi there.this may be water dripping from the injector tube where the water actually enters the bowl.It is normal to drip for a short while after the machine has just been used but if it is a constant drip then you probably have a faulty inlet valve.Try this,turn off one of the taps & see if dripping stops.if not,turn off tha other tap & see if it stops.this will tell you which of the valves are leaking.You could just turn the taps off after use,that would save having to replace it.Hope that helped you.if not then give more detail if possible please.cheers!

Water continues to drip into the washer when it is finished with cycle and turned off


Water valve is located at the rear of the machine with the water hoses attached to it. Disconnect power. Remove hoses and unscrew the small angled bracket attached to the valve. Replace the valve and your problem will be solved. Part Number is 2200270. This the only possible cause for the symptom you describe.

1) The coffee you are using may not be ground finely enough to provide a proper extraction time, resulting in water rushing through the ground coffee much too quickly. Think of it like water running through a handful of pebbles as opposed to a handful of sand. You want "sandier" coffee.

2) Your gasket (the rubber part that seals the portafilter to the group head) may be worn/damaged and is leaking water when you are brewing. Attempt to contact FF! or Saeco to secure a replacement gasket. When you are not using the machine, don't tighten the portafilter all the way in to the head, either leave it completely disengaged or only loosely attached. This saves wear on the gasket.

3) Your brew water may be too hot. Purge your boiler right before brewing by running water into a bowl without the portafilter locked in. After a few seconds the superheated water will be run out and you're ready to brew.

MY 25062500 Kenmore Elite spins and clicks but won't drain.


I followed the advice from one of your postings about the Calypso pump, leaning the washer back and removing the bottom access panel. (Be sure to disconnect AC power first!!!). Heeding the warning about "lots of water" -maybe 10-15 gallons!!!-I removed the back access panel and loosened the drain hose, then I put a pie plate beneath it to pool the H2O as it rushed out, cranked up the shop vac undid the hose and let it rip. I filled my shop vac 3 times!). Then I tipped the washer back removed the the pump which is on the right, opened it up and cleaned out the impeller. It works like a champ now. Thank you for your help!!
