Question What made the washer fill up and leak?
Model Number: Frigidaire Gallery GLTF1670AS0   Brand: Frigidaire   Age: 5 - 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


On a day that we were watching our inquisitive 2 year old grandson, our downstairs neighbor knocked on our door and said she had water leaking from her ceiling. On examination, we noted that there was water on the floor around our front-loading washer. It was not running, so we opened the door and water gushed out.

  • What made it fill up with water, when neither of us had turned it on?
  • How could we even open the door when it was full? (thought you weren't supposed to be able do that...)
  • The grandbaby could have jiggled the knobs and made it fill up, we suppose, but why would water leak onto the floor prior to us opening the door?
  • Can water back up on its own and fill the drum?
We are stumped.

CHeck your water valve on your unit if it's allowing water in when the unit it shut off it's faulty.

Thumbs up Water Valve

Thanks for the info about the water valve. I'll order that part and give it a try.

Interestingly enough, there is more water in the drum today, even though I removed it all yesterday and turned off the water supply to the washer. Does that jive with a faulty water valve?

In that case you may have an issue with the valve on your wall that allows water to come into the room might want to check that.
