Probably not.

you could have a defective water inlet valve that lets the water in even though there is no power to that valve.

check that valve, remove it and blow unto it. there should be no air passing thru.

i hope i was able to help...

cheers,

I recently installed new fluidmaster fill valve. Now when i try and turn valve from wall on the water flow from valve shuts off before i can get valve all the way on. Even if i turn it on slow it will...


You have a water restriction, a fluid master can be taken appart it has a cap on top that will pop off that conceals a washer where water comes up.

First turn water off and remove cap and barely crack valve and flush out with cap and washer out just look at it good so you will know how to put it back together.

That way it let you know if the valve is where the problem is. You could take supply line loose from bottom of tank and turn valve on run some in a container to flush out any trash in line.

Washer won't stop filling


if you can turn the washer off while it is still filling. and the water continues to enter the machine you have a bad inlet valve.
Do me a favor turn the washer to fill, with the washer still running unplug from the wall. If the water is still entering the unit you have a bad inlet valve

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

Washer should fill, remove hoses, check screens in hoses and or valves on machine for clogs. Verify water valves at the source are turned on. If all this checks, you need new valve installed on your washer.

Washer constantly fills with hot water even when turned off.


Sounds like a bad mixing valve. To verify that it is the valve you need to turn off the washer when it is filling. If water keeps running, replace the valve, Cost is under $50. for most washers.
