I have a Fisher Paykel GW11 washer. The outlet were the water comes out to fill the tub has a smaller drip leak even when the machine is off. Any ideas what may cause this?

Thanks

Thanks. It seems to be leaking right at the plastic nozzle assembly and only when the machine is turned off. Attached is a picture, the red cap points to where the leak is.

It would still seem to be one of the Water Valves.

Turn off either Hot or Cold taps, and see if it still leaks.

(you may have to wait awhile for the residual water to seep out)

Thanks. I agree with you - I will check the inlet valves. One odd thing - last night I turned the valve for the cold water all the way open (my wife had it just cracked open) and it hasn't leaked since.
Strange creatures these washing machine are...

Water Valves sometimes need a minmum amount of water pressure to help ensure shut-off.

Lucky me if that's all it is. It doesn't seem to be leaking at the moment - I'll keep an eye on it for now.
Thanks for your help. :cheers:
