Question about Washing Machines
I have finally found a reference in Samsung's own knowledgebase, online in which they indicate that this appliance was designed for European water pressure systems and that in the US and Canada, often water pressure can be much higher than in Europe (although the manual says it is good for 800kpa, which is a darn sight higher than they use in Europe, I think European domestic supply is regulated to 400kpa).
Whatever the case may be, I have noticed that my house has what appears to be rather high water pressure (subjectively of course). So, first I checked the leaking with it set to a cold only cycle, and low and behold, greatly diminished (since it was only drawing water from one line, hence a lower volume of water). Then I closed both supply taps about 2 thirds the way, and voila, problem is gone.
It makes way less noise now when filling, and I cannot really tell that the washtime has been extended excessively due to the longer fill times?
Would love some feedback if this fixes your problem?

I just bought it and have the identical problem!!
The water came flying out of the soap drawer and the front window and then I put it on cold and it works fine! haha
what a joke
