My front load washer is filling up with water while not running. Is this an easy fix?
The water entering the machine while being in the off position would most likely be caused by a faulty water valve 5221ER1003A. To replace the water valve you will first unplug the unit and shut off the water supply. Disconnect the hoses going to the water valve. Remove the 3 screws at the top back that are holding the main top in place and slide main top back slightly and lift off. Remove the hoses inside that connect to the water valve. You will want to mark them or go ahead and attach them to the new valve so that they are connected to the proper ports. Remove old water valve and install the new one and reassembly. Reconnect power and hoses and turn water on.
