Drum filling with water

Every couple of days the drum of the washing machine begins filling with water even though it has not been used. I have cleaned out the filter several times but it still keeps happening. The machine works fine in normal use, both washing and drying, and is completely clear of water when the wash cycle finishes. The machine is a couple of years old and has worked fine until recently. The machine has not been moved/altered in over a year.

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 !

Water keeps filling even when not in use

hi Jeremy.
Why does my washing machine keep filling up with water when not in use? Ensure that the waste pipe of the washing machine is higher at one point than the drum of the machine, this will prevent water running back into the machine. Normally this would fill the machine with dirty water. Or it could be a faulty water inlet valve, which will fill the machine with clean water.22 Sep 2007

I have a black hoover VHD 844 DB washing machine and recently after a wash has finished and ive the clothes removed water begins to very slowy fill the drum again. The water isnt smelly but looks dirty....

Your water valve is not closing all they way and either needs to be replaced or cleaned. Even though the video below is on a different washer, it gives you an idea on what is required to be done.

Washing machine begins the wash cycle going immediately to the agitate cycle, without filling up with water first.

Washing machine agitates at beginning of cycle without filling

Chances are either:1) the water pressure switch has failed or 2) the hose that connects to the air bell has debris in it and it will not allow the switch to reset

Washing machine fills with water when not in use.

Either your pressure in the main line bringing water to your machine is insufficient; or your intake water valve is defective; which you can replace easily.

Washing machine w827 drum fills when the machine is switched off

You have a bad water inlet valve. There is probably silt in it and it is stuck partially open. Replace the valve and you'll be back in business. Hope this helps!
