Question about Samsung WF203ANW Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Water spraying out of front panel

My Samsung front load washer is giving me fits. Water is gushing out of the spot where the laundry soap and fabric softener goes. I assume it is plugged somehow. I have cleaned the part that pulls out and put it back in but it is still gushing. Any advice?? Don't want to pay a repair bill if I can fix it myself.

    Thank you so much! Do you mean take off the whole top section of the washer (unscrew it in the back and remove it)? I don't want to break it, ha. Thanks again.

Hello, you should be able to remove the panel off the top and access the inside of the machine..from there you will see a rubber hose that goes from the detergent tray to the tub..remove this and clear the blockage to the tub, had same problem last week and found a sock blocking the entrance to the tub. Hope this helps..Good Luck!!!

My HE top load Kenmore is staining all of my dress shirts. from small little spots to large massive areas. I am wondering what it is. I have ruined about 50 shirts so far. Could it be the soap?


If they were all in the same load, something must have fallen into/got mixed with the load, such as ink pen, etc. Full washer with hot water and add cleaning agent such as ammonia or plain detergent to clean the washer cycle.
To clean those shirts, add a 1/4 c of "Simply Green" / The Green Stuff ($ store brand) to temp appropriate water, directly spray on spots and let soak a few minutes, then wash (with or without detergent) and do a double rinse cycle. Naptha or Zote laundry BAR soap are good as "detergent". HTH

The water is still soapy after many rinses. I am using very little soap


I am having the identical problem with a Maytag washer! The first 2 or 3 rinses are effective somewhat, (but not like the Whirlpool I had for 22 years) and I think, "one more for fabric softener"---but suddenly I have a full inch of bubbly white, white, very soapy suds! Picture half a washer of water with a cup of tide! It's that soapy and I cannot figure out where the soap is coming from! Tonight, I had not even used a regular soapy detergent in the previous 15 cycles, having switched to an eco detergent from Costco and used little. I even ran a few cycles with no laundry and no detergent--no soap then!

Btw, the washer has only cold water rinses--I had not noticed the tiny print on the front of the washer--or I'd never have bought it. We learned in fabric class that icy cold water (it's snow melt here in Oregon) shocks fabric as badly as hot water, and it fails to get soap out as well. And everything comes out scratchy stiff like cardboard, and hurts my face--skin even peeled before I began opening lid to check on rinse cycle. I got rashes and dry skin from all the soap and ice water...until I began doing 7 or 8 rinse cycles on the items like washclothes, towels etc. Clothing gets hardly any soap, or I hand wash it now--am exhausted and want new machine! Can't sell this junk tho.

Anyway, so the way I rinse with warm or cool (not melted snow) water is I stop the washer and start over the wash cycle to get warmer water for the rinse. Then, I move the dial to extra rinse cycle for the rest of the rinse, after the water has filled, so it cannot go on to do an ice water rinse after competing the "wash" cycle that's really a rinse cycle with no soap.

I would hurt the person who designed this washer! It seems to add soapy water back into the rinse on the 4th rinse cycle! Sounds bizarre, but I always think that everything is finally rinsed ok and one more with a little fabric softener will do it, but when I look inside to add the downey, there's an inch of suds on top! I don't have suds like that on my wash cycles! It's bizarre...I've wondered if neighbor's suds are coming in, or am I haunted?

Last week, I hand-rinsed my washcloths and kitchen towels and put them in washer for the spin cycle, at end of the rinse cycle, just to get water out of them for dryer.... To my dismay, the spray of water while spinning (have no idea why washers add icy snow melt to my warm rinsed laundry during the final spin but they all do, you can hear the spray) was soapier than my original wash cycle--which has a teensy bit of suds which is gone in a minute or 2! Honestly, my washcloths etc were fully soapy again! I'd rinsed them so well that immersing them in warm water left the water clear and clean, but after the spray, they were just as soapy as after the earlier rinse cycles that had the inch of suds... I had to take everything out and spend another hour hand rinsing and wringing befor the dryer....

I have taken to using pint-sized tupperware to get the suds off the top rather than letting it go into the laundry or washer. I skim it out and put it down the kitchen sink. It's so soapy I'd have to do dozens of rinse cycles to rinse it out, so I skim it out manually. So new soap must keep getting into the washer! It also does not seem to matter whether the wash is full or half. Tonight the previous rinse cycle had been full, and pretty clean. But when I o;pened the next one to add fabric softener, it was only half full of water, and an inch or soap suds. I had wondered if the soap was outside the basket, and came in through the holes, once water got that high, but no. Does not matter. And I had wondered if it was caused by suction from stopping the rinse cycle during spin...but I went load after load for 10 days, never stopping a cycle early and it still put all that soap in the 4th rinse cycle. Or in the 3 cycle's spin at the end of rinse, when it sprays water on the spinning laundry.... This is a horror. Maytag ignores my emails. The handyman says new washers are terrible and wants nothing to do with it. I wish I'd paid whatever it took to fix my old whirlpool. 22 years and never an issue ever, never more than 3 rinses and then only a 3d because I'd used double soap to get out dirt from gardening or road trips like Santa Fe in the winter when shih tzus got covered with red clay dirt used on snow and ice--that stuff is lethal! Normally I added fabric softener on 2d rinse cycle and things were so clean. Now things are not clean, come out ripped, or with pilling like they aged 10 years in one night. So I handwash anything I want to keep nice. Washcloths are getting frayed, towels look bleached or faded....and I am relating to my grandmothers on wash day. Sorry it's just more problems not solutions.

Don’t wait for the machine to jam to look into your filter.

You can use Affresh to clean your front loader. Deposits of soap and other such things can be stuck around the inside tub of your washer. Try this product, it works great on all front loaders. Use very hot water with the Affresh pellet with no clothes and run the machine through a cycle. Also helps with any stagnant water smells. Put the Affresh pellet inside the machine, not in the soap dispenser.

You can give me a ‘very helpful’ rating for the free help, can't you. Thanks.

My front load washer will not empty out the fabric softner. I have taken out the drawer & cleaned it. It will empty out the laundry soap, but not the fabric softner


I have the same problem with mine. I found that some fabric softners worked better than others. I found Downy the worst, when i switched the problem seems to stop once i cleaned out the drawer

Here is a response I recently gave to a person posting a similar problem. You do not state your model number, so: If you have a tub clean cycle, use that, if not, use the longest, hottest cycle with no clothes and a front load washer cleaner like Ahfresh, Washer Cleaner, SmellyWasher Cleaner, Tide front load washer cleaner, or Whilaway hot tub cleaner. Clean the tub gasket area by the door and remove the filter and clean it out also before you run the clean cycle. You may have to run the cycle with a cleaner twice to remove all the built up soap scum inside the washer. Now, after the washer is clean, USE ONLY ONE TO A MAXIMUM OF TWO TABLESPOONS OF HE LAUNDRY DETERGENT PER CYCLE !!!! (and no more than one teaspoon of fabric softener per cycle, if you use it)


You could check out http://www.smellywasher.com/ for one possiblity. The big thing is that these machines use very little water, and many of the newer soaps are 2x or 3x concentrated, so you have to use very little soap. (much much less than the soap manufacturers suggest) in order to rinse all the soap residue out of the clothes and prevent it from builing up in your washer and causing odors. (oh, by the way, that one cleaner I listed as Washer Cleaner is actually " Washer Magic ") 73b1c2a.jpg fb3071a.jpg

We had the same problem- for us it was because we were mixing laundry booster (Oxyclean) with liquid soap in the dispenser. It seems the water running through the tray had insufficient pressure to properly flush the tray out, so residue accumulated on the back & underside of the tray. Our water pressure is good here, and we don't use a water softener or filters that can reduce the pressure. Unfortunately it seems to just be a bad design of the soap dispenser tray.

We also had a problem with water/bleach leaking from our soap dispenser- when we used the bleach compartment in the dispenser we got leaks dripping onto the floor from behind the front cover of the washing machine. It was running down the front of the washer behind the front cover & coming out onto the floor. The repair guy said this was because the dispenser tray was pulled out too far, but the reason we were pulling the soap tray out so far was because the bleach compartment was too far back in the tray to use if we didn't. Now we just leave the drawer partially closed & pour the bleach directly into the soap compartment along with the soap.

It obviously is backed up or splashed in from the wash. And if it is just water why worry about it.
