Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
The valve is in filtering position, but its discharging water through waster water area.May be the valve is not got set to filter position or its getting blocked to get set in filtering position.This happens due to faulty o-rings or o-rings getting cracked or the valve movement misalignment.
also check if the filtering side of valve is got blocked, so the water is running towards other side and so its causing this.

you for posting your question here on Fixya.com.
need to replace the gasket inside the valve to stop the leak. The gasket kit is
pretty cheap and not too hard to replace. We can try to get you the part number
if you can post the valve brand and model. You should be able to call any local
pool store with the brand of filter and get the part you need without any

Thank you for posting your question here on Fixya.com.
If it is a Hayward valve like your post suggests there will be a word cast into the black plastic area near all three ports you need to connect. One will say pump, another return and the last one waste.
Pipe the pump port to the pumps discharge. Pipe the return to a heater if one is present or back to the pool. Pipe the waste to an area where you can safely discharge water as you backwash the filter.
