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(

I went to put laundry in the empty washer to find it was filled with water. Why would it fill up with water while just sitting unused (and the door partiallly open - I have always had to leave the door...


It sounds like you have a failing inlet valve. The inlet valves have springs that push them closed when the machine doesn't require water. When you start a load of clothes, the machine controller sends electricity to the inlet valves. The electricity (via magnetism) overcomes the springs and opens the valves. Your valves aren't closing all the way due to them either failing or having a foreign object holding them open.

In either case, you need to replace the inlet valve assembly ASAP. Failure to replace these valves could result in your machine flooding- not a good situation.

Good luck.

My maytag neptune will not stop filling with water at the initial fill cycle and will eventually push the door open and empty onto the floor. The water never turns off, even if I unplug the machine, water...

It needs replacing.

There is a screen filter in the water supply hose that may need cleaning. A recurring problem like yours is usually caused by sediment in the water which prevents the valve from closing. It's usually just the cold water side because the hot water has a chance to settle before being used. . Being on a well water system or a system where the pipes have been disturbed from repair or construction can cause extra sediment.

Whirlpool Duet GHW9100LW1 fills up with power off


You have a faulty fill valve

If you want to check which one, try turning off the cold supply only before you go to bed

If the washer has water in it next morning it is the hot valve that has gone faulty if it is dry then it is the cold one

They are easy to change and can be bought from a number of suppliers

Fills on its own door open or closed


I would bet the water inlet valve is weeping. It may not seal shut every time. It could have a piece of rest stuck in it also. It's cheap and easy to replace. The part # AP3128776.

Frigidaire Gallery washer is flooding the house


Try turning water faucets off. Does it still flood when done? Does your drain hose empty into stand pipe that is at least 30 inches from floor? Make sure drain hose does not go anymore than a few inches into pipe. If it is pushed too far in, unit can syphon water back into unit.
