For Whirlpool Vacuum Break (Part Number: AP3096264)

I have a Whirlpool Washer Dryer Combo LTE6234AW1. The water seems to leak when water is first loading into the washer. I first thought it was coming from the main water hoses and replace those, but this was not the case. I then replaced the water inlet valve, but that was not the problem. The only 2 things left that I can think of, it is the vacuum break or the hose that connects the vacuum break to the water inlet value. Any suggestion on how to determine this is so I don't have to buy any more parts than I need to. Thank you, Gary

ANSWER Gary, The vacuum break 3360977 is the more likely issue, It is possible for the flume to get disslodged, or deformed and cause a leak. and you also want to make sure the tub assembly is not off center, or too far forward, allowing water to splash on the tub cover and leak.
