Re: water in tub when empty
If this is clean water then you have a faulty inlet valve which will need replacing. if the water is dirty then i assume your machine is plumbed into the sink waste system. if this is the case then raising the drain hose behind the machine will prevent this.

The entire tub and basket assembly is suspended by 4 suspension rods with springs, the tub will drop when filled with water but should return to normal height when empty. If this is not the case you will need a qualified service technician look at the unit for both the clicking, and suspension. PleazerAppliance...
There will always be some residual water left in the outer tub after draining. This is normal for most washers. Purchase a container of Oxy-clean and cycle the washer a few times using hot water settings with a half-cup of Oxy-clean added to each cycle. This will help remove any organic matter left behind that might be causing odors.
there are 2 components to the soap dispenser, 1 using liquid soap has a little tub that you dispense soap into and 2nd you remove the tub when using powder soap. I assume that you are talking about the little tub is filled with water. How this works is by adding water to the tub the level rises and siphoning empties the little tub. If any water remains it is due to water being added after the little tub has already emptied. That is not a big issue and will happen. Just empty the water or add some water to start the syphon process.
ck height of drain needs to be at least 30-36 inches from floor also be sure drain hose is only 6-8 inches into standpipe be sure there is a small air gap between drain hose and standpipe.. hose needs to fit loosely into standpipe or siphoning may occur
Is there water in the tub? Or...is the tub empty?
If there is water in the tub you need to check the following:
1. Verify that you do not have a siphon problem. This is caused by placing the drain hose too far into the drain standpipe and/or sealing the top of the standpipe. This will cause water to constantly empty as the tub tries to fill. You need to have an air gap for proper drainage.
2. Check your pressure switch and pressure switch hose.
3. Make sure the drain pump is operating correctly.
4. Check operation of flow meter. This is what actually detects the water flow coming into the machine and causes the error to flash if the proper conditions on are not set. It will detect the AMOUNT of water entering the tub and it detect the pressure switch trip that shuts off the supply when the tub is filled.
If there is no water in the tub you need to check the following:
1. Check your fill valve screens. Turn off the water and remove the hoses from the back of the washer. The fill valve screens are inside the hose connections on the back of the washer. It only takes a small amount of debris to restrict water. You can clean them out using cotton swabs.
2. Make sure your fill hoses are not kinked or clogged.
Check the easy possibilities, first. I suspect you may have either a siphoning problem, or clogged fill valve screens. If you check everything and still have problems, I would replace your fill valve before suspecting a defective pressure switch or flow meter.
Let me know if this helps.
