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.

Hot water runs constantly - overfills


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.

LG Front Loading Washer overflows at detergent dispenser


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.)
