Hello there and thank you for choosing fixya
Yes you are about right normally when the unit fills with water and you dont want it to this means that the water inlet supply valve has seals that are weak in it and the water is leaking bye it or the valve itself is failing or may even have debris in the valve keeping it from fully closing so you may want to pull the unit out and inspect the valve and you may even have to remove the outer panels to get to the valve to inspect it and some of them are even located under the left side as you look from the front of the machine ok so check these and if you need more help please post me a comment and i can further instruct you on repair procedures ok?
Hope htis is very help ful for you
Best regards fMike

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

I would suspect the water inlet control valve may be malfunctioning- not closing (its default no power position).
Quick temporary fix, although tiresome, turn whichever tap, hot or cold, off when washing finished. You've probably already thought of that!
In the meantime I would suggest a service call is required ;-0(

Continuously adds water, won't cycle & agitate, spins only when manually move dial.Please Help!


If the water is not overflowing onto the floor, then you have a water siphoning problem. raise and loop the drain hose behind the washer so that it is higher than the water level in the machine.

if the water runs over the top of the tub onto the floor and doesn't shut off until you turn the machine off, then you have a pressure switch problem.

if the only way to shut the water off is to turn it off at the faucet then you have a water valve problem.

New Whirlpool Dishwasher filler overflows.


New Whirlpool Dishwashers will NOT accept the same "volume" of water that was desired by the same products of 25 years ago. Therefore the old 3/8" ID copper supply is too large and will overflow the tub filler/aireator (out the air vent holes). I just installed a new dishwasher supply kit consisting of a new 3/8" OD stainless braded hose with an ID of about 1/4". This delivers less volume than that recommended (in the installation manual) and therfore does restrict the flow a bit. However, the flowrate is adequate and the new dishwasher now works perfectly with no water overflow on the floor . . .

Whirlpool duet washer fills with water when not running


one of the control valves (hot or cold) is not closing the water supply, most likely leaking so the electronics are good. one of the valves needs replacing, but if you dont want to spend the money just shut the water supply off at the water supply taps.

Bosch dishwasher fills with water after cycle is completed


Sounds like you need a new water inlet valve. It's not shutting off completely, so water slowly enters the machine even while it isn't running.

The clean water fill will not shut off and water overflows from the dishwasher onto the floor. We had to turn off the water supply to the dishwasher to get it to stop.


Fill valve is shot , new one required

Ps

Does it still run when you remove the power if so the above applies

If it shuts off then the problem sits with the pressure switch
