Re: lg washer overfilling with water during first cycle
Becasue the water level sensor id broken or the shut off valve for the water is malfunctioning. If its brand new and has a warranty, i would take it back immediately and get a better known brand. Call the retailer you got it from and explain whats happening and make sure you pay for nothing. If you return it, they should pick it up.
Also, if the door isnt sealing tight and is leaking that means the latch is faulty or the seal is bad and that should still be covered by the Manufacturers warranty. Most things are for about 1 year from day of purchase.

your valve is not closing or your cycle isn't reading correctly. there should have been a diagnostic read process that should have came with the machine. if not you may have to end up buying a new drian assembly
This is often, if not all the time, a faulty fill valve, the fill
valve has mechanically stuck open and is not fully shutting off when
not the washer is not in use. This normally will become worse and could
flood over the top of the washer = big mess .... replace the fill
valve. The fill valve is the part the hot and cold water hoses are attached to.
you mean where you put the regular HE soap in? That slot is normal to overflow. The water carries the soap down (Lift the little doohickie up, it's removable for powder deterg.), and it carries it all the way to the tub...Unless i don't get it...but I'm reading the phrase "Its like the water will not go down to the tub.", and it makes me think the whole tray is overfilling with water..if this is the case, I can't help you, but filling over of the Main HE Soap tray is normal. (Just a little, if the whole thing starts filling uncontrollably, hit the power button.)
