In short, the machine works fine. However, when a cycle has finished, the drum will still fill up with water, albeit very slowly. So when i'm not using it i have to turn the water off at the valve to prevent the drum from filling up. Anyone got any ideas????

Model WFL2872 drum not turning.
It was working until I opened up the front to to remove a coin from the area of the heating element. It was an easy task but, while I don't think I damaged anything, it failed to work properly when I turned it on. I tried it on a short wash cycle but all it did was fill with water... I emptied it using the drain setting. I then tried it on spin: the machine buzzes and clicks now and then but the drum does not move. Please help!
The other logical point is that it can be related to a faulty output or error from the program controller output. In some cases choosing an alternate program cycle can confirm this case of faulty cycle patterns.
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.
An obstruction in the water-inlet valve may mean that it's no longer able to shut off You can easily open the valve and clean it (from scale or other dirt). Be aware you should disconnect the power cable from machine before doing it !!!!
Good luck !
