Your problem could be from the water level pressure switch, ( selector of water level ) or from the pressure hose, in most cases the hose that goes with the pressure switch is clogged with dirt.

you need to open the unit and find the single hose that connects with the switch, in some cases it is usually clogged from the bottom, cut it out and make sure to leave some room not to over streched the hose,

the switch rarely broke, it is usually the hose, (transparent)

Remove the screws that attach the top panel at the back of the machine, slide the top backwards and remove the top panel.
Run the machine as per normal, but be careful as the electrics will now be exposed, you will be able to see where the water is leaking from and be able to repair/replace defective part.

600 series. Why is water leaking on the floor during filling?

The fill hoses could be leaking or loosely connected. The fill valve connection(s) could be stripped. The fill valve could be damaged/defective. If this is a top loader, the fill stream could be misdirected and running down the outside of the tub.

Leaking washing machine

Need more information. What type of leak (fast, slow, seep, etc.), when does it leak (when it is filling, draining, all the time, or don't know), and where is the leak coming from? If water runs out as fast as it is filling, you may have a drain hose that is ruptured or has disconnected. If it is a very slow leak, you may have a connection that is working loose. Or, it could be as serious as a hole in the outer drum. Is this a top loader or a front loader washing machine?

The leak could be the filler tube, the soap dish, the water valve. You have to do some detective work to figure out where it is.

My samsung top loader washing machine sw65v9w won't stop filling with water

If the water stops when you stop the cycle, then the pressure sensor is at fault. If you need to turn the water supply off to stop it, then the water inlet valve is at fault.

Top loader leaks when filling

you need to take the bottom cover off and see if it;s not the fill valve,, the water line goes into a little valve usually with hose clamps this would be the fill valve, sometimes they crack after a while and need to be replaces it has 2 wires going to it, unplug them take off the hose clamps remove it, get a new one and reinstall it,, but before taking it out look with a flash light and make sure it might just be a hose on the macine side of the fill valve that why it onloy leaks when finnling
