Re: hose leak connection drain hose to washer
Seems peculiar to me there's so much pressure on a drain hose. Are you pumping to a drain much higher than the top of the washer?
Just pumping water out of a drain hose shouldn't create much pressure unless the hose is kinked or restricted. Look for that problem first. You could get a hose clamp from an auto parts store that's much more reliable than the spring clamps you're describing. I would try that on the inside and outside connection and see if it solves the problem.

I hate to say it, but unless you can pull it all the way out and flip it up on it's face by yourself, you'll have to get a repair man. I assume you did this procedure: http://www.samsung.com/ae/support/skp/faq/1061987 and the black tube came off UP inside/behind the plastic wall. It would probably be a 2 person task to lift the washer carefully and try to get up in in there. There will probably be 2 screws holding in the plastic back plate, or it may just pop out with a screw driver from the side (with plastic pins behind, be careful) to allow you better access to the point where the hose attaches to the washer. Here's a guy who has taken apart the whole washer, hopefully you don't have to do this, but if you do, here's the procedure.
most washer are set up pretty much the same ill do this by number so you can follow 1 make sure you empty washing machine either by spin cycle or manual drain through kick flap at front make sure you have rags towels bowl 2 unplug the plug from electrics 3 turn water supply off at wall disconnect water inlet pipe 4 now all electrics and water are disconnected you need to disconnect the drain hose usually attach to drain pipe behind wash be careful these are usually full so drain off 5 if you can manage yourself carefully put washing machine on its side put some towels down to protect 6 underneath usually to the front right bottom is the sump pump with the sump hose black and the drain hose grey and the manual drain hose now either by clip or screw loosen the drain hose it is usually attached up the sides by clips they can just be pulled off one free from the sump motor just pull it through if refitting remember its just all reversed what you have done good luck
Hello, and welcome to Fixya.
To rectify your problem do the following.
Remove the lower rear panel of washer.
Locate and remove the large black hose connected to bottom of drum.
Remove and clean plastic filter inside hose.
Reassemble and test for leaks.
Check drain hose for blockage if it still does not drain.
sounds like you have a hose problem. are the hot and cold water hose connections tight? they may need new washers. if that is the problem turn off water valves,disconnect hoses and replace them with garden hose washers from any hardware store. re-tighten them snugly. just tight enough so they don't leak. if it only leaks while draining, replace the short hoses connected to the pump,located inside bottom of inside of washer.
Did you knock out the plug where the dishwasher drain hose connects to the disposal. If you did not that is the problem. Plumbers will even forget the plug every once in a while. In side the spot that the hose connects to the disposal there is a plug. Knock it out and make sure you do not leave it inside the disposal or it will jam it. Hope this helps. Rick
The problem is a clogged coin trap. The coin trap is located below the front loading door near the right front side. To gain access is the problem. It is in a bad location and this will take a couple of hours to fix at a minimum. Tools needed, a phillips screwdriver, short handled perfered. A large set of channel locks. A set of flush cutters. Purchase a couple of hose clamps to replace the cheap factory ones. Unplug the machine. Disconnect the hot and cold water lines. Remove all water from inside the washer. Turn the washer on its side. Looking at the bottom you will see a black rubber device, with a grey hose (the drain)running into it, a white device hung onto it, and the top of the corrigated black rubber device is attached to the bottom of the drum. Disconnect all connections. This is not fun. Remove the black unit. Look down inside the unit and you will see a clear cylinder (usually filled with coins and lint) In short the clog which is not allowing the machine to pump out its water. Clean the unit and keep the coins for your trouble. Reinstall the black unit.(coin trap). Make sure the green clamps are properly seated or better yet replace them with the hose clamps. If you are unsure about the sizes take the coin trap to the local car parts store and purchase a couple. Make sure the rubber parts are replaced flushly or the repair will leak and you will get to fix it again, after swimming in a bit of soapy water when you sit the unit up again. Reconnect the hoses and power plug. Run a short cycle and check for leaks, by removing the back of the machine and checking for water leaks. Good luck!!!
