How do I repair a constant water drip into the washer tub? Thank you!

Problem just started and is not causing any leakage outside the machine. Machine fills properly, water just does not cut off entirely.

The water inlet valve has something caught between the diaphram & body or the diaphram is split. If it is the type with screws in it you can pull it to pieces, remove the foreign matter or replace the diaphram if damaged (if you can buy one). Alternately replace the valve.

Is the machine belt driven? Look under the washer and see if the belt is laying on the floor. If so, just get a new belt.

SOURCE: water dripping into tub

One of your water solenoid valves are either going bad or stuck open with a little sediment. Find out which is leaking by turning off one of the water lines to the washer. If after it is turned off it still leaks try turning the first water valve back on the turn the other water valve off. This will help you determine which solenoid valve is having the problem. Once identified it is easily replaced.

SOURCE: water drips into the tub when the washer isn't running

Your solonoid is in need of a service. Tilt the washer sideways after you unplug it and remove the water pipes. Once disconnected, undo a nut or two holding the plate in position.and remove water valve from machine. Possibly you can remove both water pipes from the valve assembly without going in from underneath. Once loose, use appropriate screwdriver or socket spanner and carefully strip the valve. Clean dirty area untill all particles are removed. reassemble and retry..

LG Fuzzy logic 6.5kg WF-T7519PV washing machine.Sensor panel error PE where E is flashing indication with sound.


This PE error or fault code indicates that the machine is overfilling with water. This washer is equipped with a water level pressure switch. As the machine fills, the pressure increases on the switch, at the set pressure, the switch cuts power to the water inlet valve and the water stops flowing into the washer. If the pressure switch fails to sense properly, or the water inlet valve fails to shut off the unit can overfill. This situation can also be caused if the machine does not drain properly. First, check to see if water ever enters the machine when it is turned off. If so, replace the water inlet valve. Next, check the drain line to be sure it's not clogged or kinked. Next, check to see if the drain pump is working properly and removing the water from the previous cycle. If all of those check out, you may need to replace the pressure switch. If no water is going into the machine, check the water inlet valve operation.

Ge profile fridge side by side makes only 8 ice cubes per day


Good day,
Assuming the temperature in the freezer is normal. 10 degrees or less. then it should be one of the 3 items here.
1. Partially plugged filter.
2. Water valve in the back bottom of the machine failing to open properly.
3. Partially blocked supply line from the house or it's connection fittings which ar more common than the line itself.

As well, if the water fill valve has a small leak on the off cycle, the fill tube running from the outside back of the machine that supplies water to the ice maker cavity may have ice starting to cause a blockage.

Amana Refrigerator Model # ARB 2214 CC with leaking ice maker


Good day,
If the fill pipe that fills the ice maker is in it's proper position, then it is a defective water fill valve located in the bottom rear of the machine.
After harvesting the cubes the ice maker mechanism continues to rotate and turns the water valve on for 7 seconds. If it does not shut off smartly then it can cause the well to overfill, and flow water into the bucket.
Do not let this go. A small leak could turn into a major overflow, even overnight causing serious problems to the machine and as I have seen the entire house.

HI
There are a lot of things that can cause the machine to leak.
You could have a fitting or tube that is broken.
You boiler could be leaking and needs to be replaced.
You could have a hose connection that has come loose.
You could have a bad seal at a connection.
Until you get inside you will not know? You might want to have someone look at it for you.
Scale is one of the major causes for machines to start leaking. Make sure that your water hardness is set on 4, so you descale more often than not enough, to prevent leakage in the boiler.

Turns out that the dishwasher had a leak in the bottom. No water could be seen leaking out because Bosch machines have a cut-off valve that means if a tray in the bottom of the machine fills up with water, the float valve doesn't allow anymore water into the machine. we worked this out after we tipped the machine slightly, water ran out, when we put it back down and started it the inlet valve worked until the bottom had filled with water again.

New machine for us! However, not a critism of Bosch. We use our machine at least two or three times a day and have done for the last 5 years.
