SAMSUNG B1215J WASHING MASHINE (front loader )

I have had this washing machine for about 6 months but didn't start using it until last week.I noticed that water keeps flowing into it even when its powered off.I always have to drain it before using it because it gets filled with water.
I would appreciate your assistance.

Water flowing into machine when it is off [ie no power]

normally indicates faulty water inlet valve inside machine
if it is still under warrenty get machine manufactures engineers
to call to repair it where water hoses are connected to back of machine that is where inlet valves are inside machine
if not under warrenty disconnect from power turn water
to machine unscrew fill hoses take lid off you will see valves on
normally right hand side if not sure which valve it is replace both
ex engineer [must disconnect from power and water]

i don't think the problem has something to do with the 6 months delay in using it, right now i think there might be 2 possibilities
1. now that you have just started using it,there might be a mistake in the procedure you follow, because washing machines have options of single ring or double ring, you might be taking out the cloths before the completion of the process, so go through the manual to figure it out.
2. Or if there is no mistake in the procedure, then there must be a problem in the programing of the machine. It might have been mis-programed to fill in water after the whole process, if that is the case take it to the dealer to get it right.

Water usage per cylce

water usage is about right. top loaders use far more and so does hand washing
only way there would be excessive water usage is if machine were overfilling
