This does not apply to your case, but I have had a number of tops to have a slow drip that was easily fixed. Turn the washer on, and while it's filling rapidly switch from cold to warm to hot... back and forth several times. In some cases, a small piece of debris can be dislodged from within the valve. If that doesn't work, replace the valve. In cases where the above worked, the valves have run fine for long periods of time afterward.
Nothing is foolproof because fools are so ingenious.
