I left town for 2 weeks, turned my water off and drained the pipes. When I arrived home, I found my washing machine tub filled to the rim with water and my washroom flooded. I don't understand what could have caused this since the water was turned off and all pipes were drained. Can someone give me some idea what is happening and how do I prevent this from happening again.

Thanks

The only place water in the washer can come from is the taps on the house plumbing. If they were really turned off, they may be leaking. Without enough water pressure at the washer's water inlet valve, it may not hold tightly closed to prevent water from entering... even if the washer was not powered.

To fix it, the tap's washers may need to be replaced.
