Question about Washing Machines
Samsung top loading wm model SW70A1IG/XTL.
Sequence of failure:
power on-fuzzy selection -water level high/medium/low selection anything -cold water selection -timer shows 77 min.-start button on - tiomer shows 74 min.(whereas no previous water level inside) - inlet valve not opening - drain valve opens with IE error message after few seconds - without draining all water drain valve closes after one second.
What I tried:
cleaned pressure chamber, pressure tube and checked pressure switch with a continuity tester. Pressure switch tested same continuity result for no pressure and for applying pressure using mouth blow in the tube. May be testing was not perfect.
Again I tried for same setting - this time water inlet valve opens - water comes in - but for if level selection is low - water becomes full then stops inlet valve-water incoming stops - now agitator revolves only one round - then drain valve opens - drain valve closes shortly without draining all water - IE message displays.
I am trying - trying - trying : please solve
(please note in any case water tap is opened, no air lock in water hose, inlet filter clean all checked)
You know, it sounds not like a mechanical issue. Sounds like your control circuitry is off kilter..

Here's a few instruction's How to Diagnose Washing Machine Problems
If the washer won't start, check the power cord or reset the circuit breaker depending on the issue. It may be overheated and shut off temporarily. Let it cool for 30 minutes, and if it still won't start, call a professional.
If the motor transmission failed or the drive belt has broken, these need the assistance of a professional.
If the washer won't drain, clean out the drain hose and straighten any kinks. If the drain hose fits too tightly in the standpipe, adjust it to allow for a minimum of 1.25 inches for airflow so water can drain.
If the washer won't fill or fills slowly, turn the faucet handles counterclockwise as far as possible. This is usually the result of partially open faucets.
Call a profession if the washer overfills. This means the water-inlet valve or switch is defective.
