Check the height of the drain hose. if you aren't seeing a leak on the floor the drain hose might be below the height of the tub. the water always seeks the lowest level and if the hose is too low the water wwill run right out

Kenmore elite 22952 keeps filling til overflows, no matter what level setting

Inside the case there is a water level switch. It is round, has 2 wires to a number of connectors and a tube that goes down to the drum. As the water goes in, the water level rises in the tube and causes the pressure to operate the switch and turn the water off. If the machine was tilted or laid flat with the transit bolts not being in place, it may have caused the pipe to come off. The usually look like this.

They are easy enough to change, but expensive. Check the pipe hasn't come off first.

I just bought a front load washer from a online yardsale,. My issue is when washing shouldn't it fill up with water to wash. Mine let's some water down, but clothes just flop around, no suds either,

They don't fill all the way, in fact they are hard to tell when they are filled because the water level does not rise to the level of the glass in the door.

Errpr code 4e on samsun aqua jet vrt

A 4E code on Samsung washers means that the washer isn't filling properly or the sensor isn't detecting the water flow. First, make sure that the water shut-off valves are open. Next make sure that the drain hose outlet is positioned above the fill level of the washer. (This avoids the water being suctioned out of the tub.)

Turn off the shut-off valves and disconnect the fill hoses from the washer and the valves. Clean the filters in the washer and at the valves. Reconnect the hoses to the valve and place a bucket under the other end. Open the valves and check that you have good water flow from both hoses. You may want to replace the hoses. (Some washer fill hoses are designed to clamp shut if they detect a leak. This anti-burst feature will reduce the water flow to a trickle. Since the washer fill sensor detects the amount of water in the tub within 8 minutes, that will trip the error.)

If the washer isn't filling and there is plenty of water coming from the water line, the fill valve probably failed in the closed position. If the water level is rising, then the sensor is probably faulty.

Please add a comment with the full model number of your washer. Then I may be able to point you to the parts. If the washer is under warranty, contact Samsung.

I hope this helps.

The door won't lock and water is leaking out

it may be being sucked out by siphoning through your sewer pipe .Probably a siphon problem . Check your drain hose to make sure hose is not stuffed too far down drain and air can get between the hose and the drain pipe . If you have tapped the hose to the drain to keep water from coming out the drain pipe , go to home depot , and get a siphon break . When a washer fills , but water level doesn't rise in the machine ,

Machine fills and keeps filling and never goes to agitate. just fills. If you skip it ahead it will only go to rinse and spin.

Probably a siphon problem . Check your drain hose to make sure hose is not stuffed too far down drain and air can get between the hose and the drain pipe . If you have tapped the hose to the drain to keep water from coming out the drain pipe , go to home depot or an appliance parts house , and get a siphon break . When a washer fills , but water level doesn't rise in the machine , it's being sucked out by siphoning through your sewer pipe .

Washer keeps filling w/ water, only stops when changed to spin

Your drain line is too low.
OR the drain line is restricting air where it enters the drain stand pipe.
Remove the drain line and hold it up high.
Turn the washer on to fill. It should fill then stop.
This example should explain what you must do to correct the drain line problem.

Water keep refilling

This is commonly caused by a condition known as "siphoning". The following link explains:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r587481-prevent_washer_siphoning

The washer is filled when the solenoids on the water inlet valve are activated, allowing water to flow through the fill hoses. Once the washer reaches a predetermined level (as determined by the load level selector dial), the pressure switch senses the water level and shuts off the inlet valve. If the pressure switch was causing this problem, your water level would continue to rise to the point that the washer would overflow. If the water inlet valve was defective and would not shut off, you not only would have a washer that would potentially overflow, but it would also continue to fill when the washer was not in use. The key to diagnosing your problem is the fact that the washer continually DRAINS and cannot maintain the water level. Take your drain hose and pull it up from the standpipe. If you had the hose shoved down in the standpipe too far, or if the drain hose was fitted too tight, a sucking sound may be heard as you pull the hose out. You should only have about 6 inches of hose in the drain. There needs to an air gap around the top of the standpipe as well. This prevents a vacuum from forming which causes the water to be siphoned from the wash tub.

Read through the link I provided and let me know if you have questions. If you require additional assistance, please let me know before rarting the solution. I hope this helps you.
