Question about Samsung WA456DRHDWR 4.5 cu. ft. High-Efficiency
My wife found water leaking from the bottom of the washing machine. She shut everything down. I found the drain pump had busted out of its plastic housing and the hoses and wires had become disconnected. I replaced the pump assembly. I then leveled the machine and put water in the tub. I put the machine on spin only and the pump worked fine. The problem is the pump won't quit running. Even if I unplug the machine and then plug it back in the pump will start running as soon as the machine is plugged in and before the power button is pushed. Any ideas?
2 possible problems:
1. there is a tiny switch in the lower metal base of the machine hit it it might be stuck.
2. you have a problem with an electronic component in the main pcb called triac. this part is acting as a switch you need an electronic repairer to change it

SOURCE: water will not pump out
Before you replace the pump; check to make sure there is no debris in the pump or hoses. I just pulled a baby sock from inside the impeller part of my pump.
–It was an easy repair. Just unplug your machine. Remove the back access plate (2 screws). Disconnect the hoses (be sure to have towels handy – you may have up to 12 gallons of water drain out –I had about 2 gallons). With a flashlight inspect the impeller, if there is debris -it is most likely your culprit.
