When not in use the drum fills with a little water. I have turned off the supply of water to see if this cured the problem and it did. So the water is obviously coming from the fill supply. But how do I get at the inlet valves to clean or replace.

There is a pressure switch fitted to all washing machines.basically a tube outside the drum that has air inside it which responds to water going into the drum.as the air in the tube compresses it activates the switch to shut off the water and sends a new command to controller board to turn the drum and start washing.when it doesn't switch off tells me that the tube has too much water in it and won't shut off supply.you can locate the tube and empty it so it just has air in it reconnect and see if that fixes it.if it doesn't then next place to look is the switch itself and controller board.
Yes the drum will always spin when filling it is called stirring, however, you will find you need to replace the (I assume) cold inlet valve, or you could put the cold hose on the hot valve and do a hot wash, this means it would fill with cold water, however some machines do have a sensor for sensing water temp, if this is so the machine will beep, and it may take some time to fill. :)
there is a little hose that runs from the back of the pump up to a pressure switch that contols water level in drum I had a problem similar to this and found hose had split making the drum overfill, replaced hose cured problem
Isolate power and water supply and gain access to the main drum motor. Check for condition of carbon brushes by removing them and repla
ce if severely worn. Check wiring loom around motor and right back to module controller. The clicking is obviously power being supplied to motor via the loom to the motor. finally check for any dry solder joints or burnt areas on the circuit board controlling the motor.
You have dirt in your inlet valve (could be hot or cold) you will have to determine which valve is faulty and replace the valve, there will be dirt on a sealing face which is not worthwhile fixing the chances are you will make it worse. plus these are sometimes sealed units. turn off the power before removing any valves these could have a pernament neutral supply to them. one bolt and two pipes and it can be removed with the top off.
