    Does the washer fill up with water even if the washer is unplugged? Did you replace the water inlet valve with a new OEM part?

    Yes it was oem part , to rule out a defective new part i shut both hot and cold off overnite and it filled up again so im leaning toward a siphoning issue not sure how or why since my air gap is like a foot higher then my standoff pipe and free flowing .
