If the water stops when you stop the cycle, then the pressure sensor is at fault. If you need to turn the water supply off to stop it, then the water inlet valve is at fault.

SOURCE: Overflowing washing machine

check the pressure switch . its circluar in shape with 6/8 wires attached, and a small nipple with a 10mm pipe attached. as the water rises in the drum air is pushed up thru this pipe which when working ok , eventually pushes against a switch .hence its name. so, if there is damage to this pipe( maybe rubbing against the drum) the passage of air escapes before reaching the switch. if the pipe is ok then check the switch by blowing up the pipe (with the power off ) and u should hear a small click inside the switch. if not replace

SOURCE: Samsung J845 front loader washing machine. Error

Hi
An OE error presents if the washing machine has not successfully drained the water in ten minutes.
there are a few simple steps to take before calling for service.
Step 1: Check the drain pump filter.
Items caught in the drain filter will prevent proper drainage. Over time build up can occur from detergents and additives used in the machine. Manually drain unit through the drain hose, then lay a towel down to catch the water, and remove the filter. Clean the filter thoroughly and restart the machine.

Step 2: Check the washers drain hose.
If the drain hose is not installed properly, the washer will not drain properly. The drain hose should not be installed more than 1 meter higher than the bottom of the washing machine.

Step 3: Confirm that the washer is leveled properly.
If the unit is not leveled properly, it will not drain properly. The front of the unit cannot be higher than the back or vice versa. If not properly leveled, the water can flow back into the machine. If this is the cause of the problem, please level the machine using the supplied leveling wrench. When you place a level on the washing machine, the bubble should be in the center. Confrim that the washer is leveled from side to side and front to back.
you can perform a diagonal test when leveling the washing machine to ensure that the unit does not tilt from corner to corner.

Thanks for contacting fixya.com

SOURCE: Top loader washing machine does not fill up

very simple, your drain hose is below 4 ft, your drain hose should go in the hole between the hot and cold water, if you dont see a hole then it is covered, you need to knock out the hole...

SOURCE: washing machine does not stop

The water fill valve (the plastic thing that the hot and cold hoses go to) has an obstruction (piece of rust or minerals from the plumbing) and the valve won't fully close. A speck in the right place is enough to cause overfilling.

or

The water level switch is defective.

or

The tubing that is attached to the level switch is loose or off. This hose must be tight on the fittings.

The problem is the pressure switch has failed or the hose is plugged up, has a hole in it. These are usually inexpensive and are very easy to replace. Here is a video this will walk you thru testing and replacing a pressure switch. You can also enter your model # for diagrams and illustrations of your specific model. All parts come with installation instructions. Not all models are available.

My washing drained pump burned out. So i replaced it cleande the drum and refitted it all. The problem i have now is my waching machine turnes on and the pump runs as soon as the waching machine is turned...


If you can actually hear the pump running (as in not just hose too low and water draining out), I'd say that the main PCB is shot.
It was probably shot before you replaced the pump (pump burned out from constant running).
These models don't have an overflow as far as I know, unless it is pressure switch based (a possible issue if you did something odd cleaning the drum) remove and reseat pressure switch hose just to be sure.

Washing machine won't fill. i filled it by hand with water, it won't agitate either, only spins.


The inlet solenoid is probably bad. And it won't agitate unless it fills and stops filling automatically.
