I discovered a leak and when I found the problem it is located around the injector as water comes in it will overflow the the slotted area therefore leaking. I took the assembly apart checking for any kind of cracks, found none. Cleaned out all surrounding areas in case of build up, found none. I noticed that if I turn my water valve down to reduce the pressure it doesn't leak. I have fairly high pressure coming in to the washer. I can use cold or hot and it will be fine now, but if I turn it on warm it starts to spray as if it will start leaking again any minute. Could I just have my water turned to high, or is there a more sinister problem lurking?
