Question about Washing Machines
Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly
This part is bypassing water when the valve is supposed to be closed.
It consists of a plastic body, A moving spring loaded needle with a rubber tip that mates to a rubber diaphragm. When they start bypassing water when not energized there is either debris in diaphragm where the rubber tipped needle mates or the diaphragm has a hole in it. These valves are NOT repairable.
When energized the solenoid magnetically lifts the rubber tipped needle off of the diaphragm. A spring forces the needle back into the diaphragm seat when the solenoid is de-energized.
If your machine has 2 of these before troubleshoot by turning the water supply off at the wall ONE hose at a time and see if the water stops seeping into the machine. Which ever hose being turned off results in the water seepage problem stopping will be the bad inlet water valve.
Thanks for choosing FixYa,
