What might be a problem with my washer box

Our 16year old Maytag just died and we had buy LG washer/dryer. But there was issue with delivery and few of other issues from Costco, we decided to return and repurchased through Lowes.

When LG was picked up, they try to shut down both cold and hot faucets, but there was drops continued from both faucets. I had to let driver to take appliances and leave because I didn't think there will be problem having washer connection box. But last night, I was cleaning/moving furniture from rec room and found wetness on carpet. Meantime, I found 2 hoses from garage and connected both faucet to make sure any drip will go into bucket not washer connection box. Since this change, I don't see any water on floor.

The washer was picked up about 4-5days ago and I do see about 1 cup of water collected in bucket since hose connection.

Tomorrow, we have new washer/dryer delivery and quick drying of floor, we are able to install hardwood floor today in rec room. But I don't want any water issue later because we are putting expensive hardwood floor into rec room.

Sorry for long story. Anyway, anyone had this type of problem? What is causing this issue?

Look forward to your help.:smile:

So you're saying when the valves are shut and no hose is connected they are still flowing a small amount of water? That just means the valves are not sealing completely. I had a small flow on my hot water side when I removed the hoses the other day to do some work. Once the hoses are connected it doesn't matter. The washer has internal valves that will close and the hoses have seals so the water will not go anywhere.
