The water valve needs to be cleaned out or replaced. The water valve is the part on the washer that the hot and cold hoses hook to.Hope this helped.

    Turn off the water ,take hoses off then take apart valve carefully ,not to loose any pieces ,wash them off and put it back together. If it doesn't work then you will need a new valve.

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,

After washing -washer slowly fills with water and runs out the door--not every time it is used. First noticed clothes still wet needing to run spin cycle--then washer leaked on floor over week end and...

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(

Water appears in drum after wash cycle is finished.

if you remove the front cover there is a drain plug that holds change and lint paperclips etc, it fills up and gets plugged and wont go throught the drainig pump. if you find this and clean it out you will be good for another 6 months...its important to check pockets before washing

Drum rotates very fast on wash cycle,spins instead of washing slowly when full of washing and water WF541

hi there......most probable cause is a defective tacho control unit on the main motor...remove the main motor and check if tacho unit is damaged or the carbon coli broken or cracked

Drum is filling with water after each wash

There is only 2 possibilities for the drum to fill with water after it has finished.
Firstly, if the empty pipe is connected to the sink outlet pipe, the water can syphon back into the washer if the pipe is too low, thereby slowly filling the washer when not in use.
Solution is to lift the outlet pipe higher.than the bottom of the sink.
The other reason is the inlet valve is not shutting off properly.
To prove if this is the case, turn the water off at the valve, if it is hot and cold fill, then turn the hot off only, and wait and see if water comes in over a period of time, if it does not then you need to replace the hot valve.
If water stills comes in with hot turned off, then you need to replace the cold valve.
If cold fill only , turn off cold and wait to see if any water comes in, if it does not, then replace cold valve.
Plz rate my solution.

Not draining and flooding my kitchen!

first off norah, you will need to check the pump filter as there is probably a blockage in there.

secondly guest, sounds like a faulty pressure switch or even a small hole in the pressure pipe, thats why your machine will not stop filling.

hope these help

please dont forget to rate the helpfulness of this reply thanks kj

Bosch classixx 1000 washing machine - stops on spin

Washing machine stops at the spin cycle - light flashes. Have to drain water out manually. Happened last week and was then able to run an empty rinse cycle. Machine worked normally for another week. Same problem today but have had to drain water manually from the drum after trying an empty 90 wash and rinse cycle (both stopped on the Spin and flashed). Any ideas? Thanks. x
