Front loader intermittently fills with water
« on: September 27, 2008, 10:52:03 AM »

My Duet front laoding washer will slowly fill with water. This does not happen all the time. Just every now and then. The water seems to seep from the inlet area around the door. Can you tell me why and/or how to fix it?

Model Number: GHW9100LW1 icon

If you mean when the washer is not being used it slowly fills with water then you need to replace the Water Inlet Valveicon.

That is what I mean, However it only happens every now and again. Is the valve difficult to replace? I saw a video posted does that apply to this?
