Hello, I'm Joel and will be glad to help you today.

The water inlet valve has failed and is letting water in the unit even when off it needs to be replaced ,that model has two separate valves one for the cold water and one for the hot water you will need to determine if its the hot valve or the cold valve leaking. The valves are listed below:
