drips water into tub when off
why does my washing machine drip water into the tub when it is not in use?
Is this a good question?
The Kenmore 110 Series is an easy to use home Washing machine created by Kenmore.
Water Inlet Valve
The water inlet valve opens to allow water to enter the washing machine. If the water inlet valve is defective, the wash may fill slowly or not fill at all. The water inlet valve requires sufficient water pressure to function properly. First, check the water pressure to determine that it is adequate. If the water pressure is adequate, try cleaning the screens inside the water inlet valve hose connection ports. If the washer still fills slowly, replace the water inlet valve.
Low Water Pressure from House Supply
The home water pressure might be too low. The water inlet valve requires at least 20 psi to function properly. Check the water pressure to the valve to determine if it is sufficient.
Check screens in water valve. Rust could have got thru and is making valve leak . There could be screens in both or one hose end as well. Clean thoroughly and carefully do not poke or tear holes in them and do not operate machine without them. Make sure hot and cold valves are on fully as well or machine will not operate properly and may damage it. This valve is sensitive and proably cant be cleaned. Screens can. Most likely screens are inserted in valve its self.
