Pool of water in the drum if I let the clothes sit.
If I let the clothes sit in the washer, over time, water will accumulate in the drum. I removed the front panel and notice that the pump makes a really loud rattle sound. When the drain cycle is complete, there is still plenty of water in the discharge hose. I squeezed the boot and there is also water in there. The ball valve didn't seem to be all the way to the top. So... is the ball valve not working, the pump not working properly, or both. In reading the posting, every seems to be having problems around year 6 to 7. That is how old mine is.

Re: Pool of water in the drum if I let the clothes sit.
This is a very comon problem, not really witht the machine though. well i guess it is now. you have debris / change / other stuff.... lodged into the pump remove the lower access panel, disconnect power, there is a screw out portion on the pump, nail catcher. remove it and catch all water that comes out with a towl. unscrew it slowly to allow the water to slowly come out, or it will make a mess.
the clamp that secures the drain boot to the tub, loosten it and remove. use a large towl to catch the watter that comes out. remove the spring clamp from the drain hose and remove the drain hose. again use a large towl to catch water. disconnect pump power supply and remove the screws that secure it to the washer, remove pump. clear all debris from the pump and check to see if anything has damaged any impellars in the pump. do this with your finger. clean out the rubber boot as well. reasemble in reverse order. before the access panel is put back, start the machine and visually check for leaks. if it leaks reset the rubber and clamp where it is leaking.

two things come to mind; 1. although drum is rotating perhaps it is slipping under load. Change drum belt, and, 2. perhaps the problem isn't in the dryer, it could be that your washer is not spinning out properly leaving an inordinate amount of water in your clothes which would tax the performance of the dryer. Just a thought. good luck!
Possible that there is dirt in the drum that comes up when the drum revolves. This can be due to dirt that had accumulated within and needs to be removed. Please try to watch this link and get some tips to clean the drum. click on : cleaning the drain
Try pushing the start/pau botton several times,this causes the drain to start drining, when it stops and starts flashing again,push the botton again.The water needs to come down a level and sometimes it may start to spin.I've had several problems with this type of washer,But all machines do this.After you get the clothes to spin,remove them and put,draino-max gel or Rooto-rooter drain opener in drum and let it sit 1-3hrs.then run machine heavy-duty hot-water no clothes,you may have to run it several times to get all the cleaner out.the pump may be clogged with animal-hair or strings from clothes.good luck
This is a common problem on washing machines, if you predominantly do cold washes.
Over a period of time, a washing machine will accumulate a buildup of Soap Scum (excess soap & softener residue) which can stick to the inside of the drum.
This black coloured soap scum occasionally breaks away from the drum, and attaches to the clothing fabric during the wash cycle.
You can rectify this, by doing the following:
Firstly, purchase a packet of CITRIC ACID from your local grocery store (usually found in the baking isle).
Do the following procedure before going to bed:
1) Do a HOT WASH without clothes (Hi water level, with HOT water) - allow machine to fill with hot water, then add the CITRIC ACID to the water. Allow the machine to complete a FULL wash cycle (i.e. allow machine to agitate for 30 mins or so, then drain).
2) Fill the machine again with the HOT water / CITRIC ACID solution, but this time allow it to sit in the bowl overnight (no cycle).
3) Next morning, set machine to spin & drain (i.e. to empty the solution)
4) Set machine to fill with FRESH HOT WATER ONLY (no citric acid), then set machine to spin & drain. This will flush all remaining residue left in the bowl.
Note: Soap scum residue is caused by using excess detergent/fabric softener. Hot Water flushing should be done every 6 months.
Contrary to what the detergent manufacturers state, you should follow Samsung's instructions by using HALF the recommended detergent.
Samsung machines prefer LOW SUDS, and you may find by reducing the amount of detergent used, you may even eliminate the buildup of soap scum.

Hi, If you are getting water in the washer without it running, the inlet mixer valve is going bad. When you run a load, does it finish spinning and all the water is out? I hope this helps you. It is not an expensing repair. I can walk you through the repair if you would like. Please let me know if I can assist you further. Thanks Vic
Go to the store and buy a bottle of CLR. Run a few cycles of it (without the clothes in there, of course!). Make sure you run a few cycles of just straight water before you attempt to wash clothes. That should do it. I've also heard of people using powdered lemonade to clean the inside of dishwashers, too. Maybe try the powdered lemonade first if you're squeamish about damaging something.
Okay, it is normal to hear water sloshing around inside the wash tub when the washer is not in use. A small amount of residual water remains in the wash tub under the wash basket (stainless steel tub), and resides in the drain line and drain pump. That's why it is important to keep the door slightly open when not in use to allow the drum to air out. The water will not evaporate, but it will help reduce the build up of odors, mold and mildew.
Now...if your washer is slowly accumulating water in the wash basket area over time, your water inlet valve is probably starting to fail. The leak can be very subtle and you may not notice it. The water only comes from one source - the fill valve via the dispenser. If you wish to replace it, the part is available at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in your model number and the part you need can be found under the "Dispenser" heading as item number 1. The replacement is very simple if you follow these steps:
1. UNPLUG the washer and turn off water supply.
2. Remove both fill hoses.
3. Remove the top panel of the washer by removing the screws that hold the panel in place in the rear of the washer.
4. Slide the top panel back, then it lifts off.
5. The water inlet valve is located in the left rear of the washer as facing from the front.
6. Remove the rubber hose leading from the valve and the electrical connections.
7. Remove the mounting screws holding the inlet valve in place.
8. Re-install new valve using these steps inthe reverse order given.
I hope you find this information helpful. If you have further questions, please post back and let me know.
after you finish cycle all water out?? and completely spun clothing??? then upon returning you see water accumulating after the fact??? if so you have a faulty water valve not seating properly after closing , you will need to replace the valve the valve to correct, in mean time turning off the water between loads will work as well(which is a practice you should do anyway)
