Re: water is emptying while filling up
On this model range, some m/c's have filter, and others did not, you obviously have one that does not.
H20 means no water is entering m/c.This is usually caused by water not being turned on, a kinked inlet hose or not enough water pressure to open inlet valve.
It would appear that you have got water there, make sure the drain hose is high enough to stop any water syphoning out,
to locate the filter on this model you need to remove the rear pael of washer, and remove clip that secures the large black hose to tub., remove hose.
Inside you will find the plastic filter, remove and clean, refit and make sure you get it back on properly.
If you are certain that the pump is on all the time, then you may have a problem with the main prigramme control, this would mean calling an engineer out.

There is a pressure switch fitted to all washing machines.basically a tube outside the drum that has air inside it which responds to water going into the drum.as the air in the tube compresses it activates the switch to shut off the water and sends a new command to controller board to turn the drum and start washing.when it doesn't switch off tells me that the tube has too much water in it and won't shut off supply.you can locate the tube and empty it so it just has air in it reconnect and see if that fixes it.if it doesn't then next place to look is the switch itself and controller board.
This is almost certainly the filter to the empty pump blocked. When you power up the machine, the first thing it does is make sure there is no water left over in the tub, if it can't evacuate any water it finds there, it won't go any further. Same on a spin, if after a set time the water hasn't emptied the empty cycle will stop but the spine cycle wont start because there is still water in the drum.
If it fills and empties, that Eliminates The Pump.
If no Spin Of the Actual drum, Could Be Belt-Stretched/Snapped.
Motor brushes Worn. Or A Problem With the logic board Controller Panel.
Go for The belt/Motor brushes first.
This might be a problem with your locking mechanism which is preventing the washer from actually performing a complete spin cycle. It will drain and appear to function but the high speed spin never actually takes place.
check the drain pipe is not blocked, to empty the machine manualy get a bowl on the floor and lower the drain pipe into it and fill to stop water flow lift pipe up in air and lower to start draining again when empty if pipe not blocked i would suggest a new pump located under the drum and easy to fit
Normally I would think that the problem is with the drain system (faulty pump or clogged lines), but you told me that also "When the washing machine is not bein.g used the drum slowly starts to fill with water!!" therefor I think it can be a dafective inlet valve or a faulty control assembly. In either case, you will need a technician to fix this.
sounds the pressure switch is not sensing the water level, so the machine thinks it's still filling. check the pressure switch and pressure switch cable. it's most likely just the cable itself. the pressure switch is located behind the drum and accessible through the back panel.
It typically means that one of the water valves (that opens and closes to let the appropriate amount of water into the machine) is not functioning properly. It is frequently accompanied by a continuous flow of water into the machine (although with the drain pump also running you won't necessarily see any water building up inside the drum.) I believe the letters actually stand for "Fill Error."
this sounds like the hose that connects the soap drawer to the drum has a split in it, within the folds, when the machine is empty the folds are closed and the water runs where it should, when loaded the folds are open so the machine leaks, check the hose and replace it, make sure it is located at both ends properly, that is the problem,,
if i have helped rate me pleeasse
