When you remove the top cover to the washer, there is, in plain view, a clear plastic box right in the middle, attached with 2 screws to the support bracket that sits right above the tub. There are 3-4 small hoses that come from the dispenser over to this box. We have not been able to find that box or a part number or a drawing that explains what it is and where we can purchase it. The box is leaking from the bottom side and can not be repaired. I hope you can help us out.
Thanks in advance.

The water level switch (also known as a pressure switch) can be accessed by following these steps:
1. UNPLUG the washer.
2. Remove the top panel of the washer by locating and removing the three screws holding it in place in the rear of the washer. With the screws removed, the panel will slide back, then lift off.
3. With the top panel removed, the pressure switch will be located on the RIGHT-HAND side towards the rear. The switch is usually brown or gray in color and will be mounted to the side of the washer cabinet.
You can reference helpful exploded view parts diagrams at searspartsdirect.com. The pressure switch is referenced as item number 20 (part number W10156252). There is a substitution part number from the manufacturer available as well - W10312527.
If your model number does not cross reference to some of these websites, use the part number(s) for your search criteria. The model numbers may not always be available on every site, but the part numbers usually will cross reference.
FYI: BEFORE assuming the switch to be defective, double check to ensure the plastic air hose leading to the switch is still attached and not ripped or torn anywhere. If the air hose has come loose, or if it has any leaks, the pressure switch will not function properly and the washer will continue to fill and not shut off.
If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.
I can tell you how to fix one on the WF218ANW/XAA washer. Your model may be the same. You need to take the top panel off the washer by taking out two screws on back panel. You need to remove the control panel and place it on the top of the unit (it is attached with electrical cord). You need to talk out the detergent tray (press the clip in the middle). You then take off the front panel. it is not necessary to take off the door; however, to remove the panel you will need to remove the door latch mechanism on the inside of the door. To remove front panel, there are also two screws on the bottom of the unit. Once you have the front panel off, remove the old gasket by loosening the two springs rings. Pay attention to how the gasket is installed before removing. Replace gasket by installing inner portion first and replacing spring ring and tightening. Put all the parts back on the washer and install the outer portion of the gasket (with the spring ring). Samsung charges $130 to do this in my area and it's a pain in the neck.
you're in a bad spot. you will need to remove top metal panel of washer; and carefully separate the drawer housing a little and wiggle the drawer out. one of the compartments in the drawer popped up and jammed the drawer.
Remove the three screws in the back of the control panel and lift the control panel up. You should see a clear plastic tube to the far right going into a gray plastic box. There is either a kink or break in this hose or the controller board (the grey box) is bad. Try removing the hose and blowing in it to check for any resistance (clog).
I just bought a controller and they run about $200
Unplug the washer and remove the top panel. The panel comes off by removing the three scews that hold it in place in the rear. With the screws removed, the panel will slide back, then lift off. This should give you access the the interface control board. The entire assembly should just snap in place. You may just have a control board that has become detached on the side that you are having problems with. Use care if you have to disassemble. If the interface control board (the electronics portion) works just fine, but you find that the control panel is damaged and cannot be repaired, you can replace the entire control panel (without the interface board) for about $70. Searspartsdirect.com carries the part and has exploded view diagrams you can use for reference. If you need to remove the entire panel from the washer to work on it, follow these steps:
1. Again, make sure the washer is unplugged.
2. Remove the washer top panel by removing the three torx-type screws (or 7mm) where it attaches in the rear of the washer. The panel should slide back, and then lift off.
3. Remove the operator console by removing the dispenser and the scew(s) behind it. Take a putty knife and insert it under the console seam right above the door. If you push in slightly while pulling outwards the panel pops off. Use care not to pull or damage any of the wiring.
4. Carefully disconnect the wiring harness and lay on a flat surface where you can have better access to view the internal components.
If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.
