Fischer Payel Ecosmart washer

I have had a variety of problems with this washer but, I guess, all in all, it's been ok. But the past few days, after I do a load of laundry, the clothes are clean and they are spun properly - no excess water. However, after I remove them, water leaks from the top of the washer into the washer leaving ~ 1/4 inch of water in the tub. The washer works fine and seems to be cleaning fine although obviously I have to remove the clothes right away or they get kind of soggy. Has anyone heard of this problem before and/or have any idea of what is causing it?

Common problem with any washer ... one (or both in rare cases) of the water valves has gone bad, isn't fully shutting off. Could be obstructed with a bit of debris from the household water supply, such as a grain of sand.

Turning off the supply faucets when the machine is not being used will stop the leaking.

Turn off one faucet at a time to determine which valve -- hot or cold -- is the culprit.

There are several models labeled EcoSmart and you didn't provide your specific model number so I can't at this point tell you what are the part numbers for the valves. It's an easy repair and the valves are reasonable cost, $35 to $55 depending on which valve and supplier/source.
