First I'd like to say great site, a lot of great info.  Now I have a 14 month old Maytag Neptune washer and dryer set.  Just out of manufacter's warranty.  Now the washer is leaking water out the bottom of the door.  From reading some of the other forums it sounds like it my be the seal kit but this thing is fairly new.  It also seems like the water just keeps running.  One more thing, the spin cycle was repeating itself.  Strange!!!!  Can you help me, please.

See if the water stops when you turn the washer off or unplug the unit...if it keeps filling then you have a fill valve that is not closing all of the way, something from your water supply has logged inside of the valve....

It also seems like the water just keeps running. 

What I meant by this is that it seems like the water just keeps coming but it may just be that it also just keeping coming out the bottom of the door.  I haven't tried to just shut off the machine to see if the water supply stops but I will try that.  I did shut off the water supply at the wall and then turned it back on and it did not continue to flow.

Yes, the water stays on so I will check the inlet valve.  Thank you and will respond with an outcome.

OK I have now removed the inlet valve and have discovered that I am unable to disasemble this valve without destroying it so now what?  I have a thought, just to assure that this is the problem what if I reverse the hot and cold valves and see if the problem repeats itself?

Why not just replace the valve, before you have a major flood in your house...

Thank you everbody for the info.  I'm not sure not sure what I actually did to the inlet valve but it worked.  I took it off, cleaned it out the best I could, and tapped it a few times on the counter.  The washing machine works great now.  Yes I'm ordering the new valve and in the meantime I'll just keep a close eye on it.  So as for the beer fund,  I'll be happy to donate some "green beer".  Did I mention that I'm a brewer?  Bottoms up!
