Is your printer front loading or top loading?

the prob is in the pressure switch or in the pressure hose, usually the hose is clogged up and fails to produce enough presure to activate the switch to shutdown all solenoid to stop the water from overflowing.

if you can open up you unit you can see a small hose 1/2 " trace the bottom hose until you find the clogged part, you can remove and clean this if not you can order a new one for immediate replacement.

if this is a top loading this is much simplier

My front load GHW9150PW4 washer fills with water when not in use. When the door is opened, the substantial amount of water spills out without warning. There are no locks or anything to keep the door from...


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
(pre-typed to cover hot and/or cold!)

This is symptomatic of a malfunctioning (not closing completely) water control valve

With power off, if it is hot AND cold fill, turn one or the other off and see which one is causing the problem. Sorry but it needs replacing and a service call ;-0(
If it's cold fill only it's clear which one!!

If is only happens when there is power on it could be the PCB malfunctioning and will require checking by the service call.

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

Wash machine is filling with water when the washer is off.


You probably need to replace the water inlet solenoid valves which may be stuck open. Turn off one hose at a time to find out if both or just one is causing the problem.

My whirlpool duet washer is filling with water when it is off. it only drips, but two days in a row it was filled up above the bottom of the door openeing and spilled on the floor,


This problem is either attributed to a defective water inlet valve, or defective pressure switch. An easy way to determine which one may be causing the problem is to unplug the washer, but leave the water taps on. If the washer continues to fill, you have a defective water inlet valve. If the water stops, I would recommend changing your pressure switch.

Post back and let me know if you require further assistance. I hope this helps you.

Random filling of the tub, door open, leaks on floor.


The only thing that can admit water with the power off to the machine is a bad Fill valve. Replace

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

Tank fills when not in use


So sorry to hear of your trouble. It sounds like your water-inlet valve is defective:

A defect in the water-inlet valve may mean that it's no longer able to shut off completely when the electricity has been turned off to it. If this occurs, the valve may leak and drip water into the clothes tub. In time, the water may accumulate substantially. If this happens, you need to replace the valve.

Can you add clothes to washer after cycle starts?


Not really. Even if it lets you it will pump out the water first. This kind of defeats the purpose. If it didn't pump out the water it would spill on the floor.
