Why does water drip into the washer tub when not in use?

There is a slow drip when the washer is off. It drips into the tub area from somewhere at the top. I shut off the water to the washer and it stopped it but I want to fix it.

You will have to replace the water inlet valve on your washer. It's not closing completely. The water inlet valve requires a minimum pressure of 20 pounds per square inch, to keep the valve closed. If you do the repair, I do recommend that you run water through both the hot and cold water hoses, but before reconnecting them to the washing machine. This will purge any particles from the lines. Sometimes these particles get caught in the water inlet valve and prevent it from closing completely.
