SOURCE: Water flowing back into washer after wash

There is a back flow valve attached to the outlet port of the drain pump. It is just a small rubber flap. This sometimes comes loose or remains open due to debris and allows the water in the drain hose to flow back into the machine after the drain pump shuts off. It can be checked by removing the drain hose from the pump inside of the machine. You will lose all of the water in your machine (about 1/2 gallon)when you do this so be prepared with a bunch of towels.

Possible your outlet filter is blocked, it need periodic cleaning, which the user can do himself. Locate where this is from your user's manual. Clean out, re-fix. Next it could be the hose that goes from the bottom of the tub to the filter pump; check the former first. Well, you have a record of sorts, 30 years!!

The 03 error code is the drain. Disconnect the drain hoses and check for blockages. If no blockage "time" the drain interval. If it's more than 6 minutes it's the pump. Also make sure you're using the correct type of soap so the ball check valve on the bottom of the outer drum isn't getting fouled with excessive suds. Also disconnect the drain hose from your house plumbing and let it free flow on it's own. This will tell you if the block is in your plumbing, and not in the machine. Assuming that your filter is clean.

It appears your pressure switch has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

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.

My samsung top loader washing machine sw65v9w won't stop filling with water


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.

WASHING MACHINE SPIN CYCLES NOT WORKING


If your washer doesn't spin or pump water out but the motor is running, your washer probably has a frozen pump pulley. If so, you need to replace the pump. To check the pulley, remove the pump from the washer and try to rotate the pulley manually. If it doesn't turn freely--if it's frozen or stiff--replace it.

The following is a link to a diagram of washer parts, If you scroll down about half way down the page, you will see the pump:

My washing machine wont drain


Hi.

Check if the drain hose is kinked or blocked.

Try resetting and running a short cycle with machine empty.

Empty the machine , disconnect power and access drain pump hose.

Depending on the model this is located behind a panel at the rear of the machine, or accessible from a panel on the front lower side.

Instructions on how to reach the pump are in the manual.

The panel is held by screws and may have a trim on top.

Once you reach the pump, free the hose, collect water, remove blockage.

If that does not fix the problem, then parts must be tested.

Pump may be faulty, but more often the problem is caused by the pressure switch.

Regards.
