Question about Samsung WA5471AB 4.7 Cu. Ft. Top Load ENERGY STAR Washer with PureCycle
Leak usually occurs during the 4th load. Put a piece of newspaper underneath the washer to monitor and leak is on the front, left side. What could be the source of the leak? Seems to only occur after several loads are washed, regardless of cycle and water temp.
Ours was leaking and then displaying "No Fill". I found the drain hose on the left rear underside of the washer had become disconnected. We scooted the washer forward far enough to tilt it back so I could get underneath to reconnect the hose. The hose is pliable and the clamp was easy to reattach with only my hand.

You probably have a clogged filter. It's a pretty easy fix, but can be tough to turn filter cap.
Project will take about a half hour, Tools needed 5/16' or 1/4" nut driver, or socket with extension. Flashlight, door stop or small piece of wood. Low profile tupperware container and a small trash can that can hold water. A bath size towel.
Step one: Remove the panel under the washer door, with a 5/16" or1/4" nut driver or socket driver with extention. There are three screws to remove them cover comes off.
(set screws and cover aside from where your working)
Step two: Locate on the right hand side a round pipe with a "s" looking plug, it is tight but turn counter clockwise with a good bit of pressure and it will slowly loosen up. (Have a low profile tupperware container etc to slide under the pipe to catch the water. It may be good to have a bucket or plastic trash can to dump into as small container fills up. Also a towel to help contain the spills.)
Step three: Once cap is removed, you will see a basket, pull it out and clean it out, You may find a sock, lint, paper or change, something that is causing you troubles in there.
Step Four: Wipe out, and re-assemble. replace basket, screw cap back into place, secure snugly. Then Replace cover, It is helpful to have a small piece of wood, door stop small book to wedge slightly under the panel as you re-install the screws. Also, a flashlight to help you see the holes for alignment is nice.

Is your soap dispenser on the left side? sometimes they get clogged and you have to take it out and clean the line that goes to the tub.

Testimonial: "The soap dispenser is on the back in the middle. There's a liquid bleach dispenser on the left side. I'll confirm that both aren't clogged. Thanks for the tip."

I just received my Samsung WD 8804 front loader washing machine, and during the 3rd wash trial, I noticed the same problem of water trickling down from the base of the front door. I took a closer look and the problem is actually due to a cracked rubber seal, which can be seen through the glass door. I have informed the technician.
