Question about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer
If it is filling up with water when the machine is not on, it sounds like the water inlet valve is leaking. Normally no water should enter the machine if it is not running. It is a relatively easy repair. Just remove the hoses from the back, remove the back panel and it the part where the hoses attach. You can get a replacement part from your local appliance supply house or online such as www.repairclinic.com. Hope this helps you.
