Samsung Diamond Drum top loader, the pump wants to work all the time.
I have a Samsung Diamond Drum top loader and have just replaced the pump which was burnt out. The new pump is working great, BUT the pump wants to work all the time, when the machine is turned on and program selected, you can hear the pump go into action immediately. The result is that the machine can never fill with water, because the pump is continuously pumping water from the machine. Suspect it is the control board. Does anyone know how easy these are to replace on a Samsung Diamond Drum machine.

Generally speaking, In the top control head of most washing machines, there is a water level sensor that tells the machine when the drum has enough water in it and when to start the wash cycle according to what size load it is set for. In the older washers, it was basically like a barometric pressure sensor and had a clear plastic hose connected to it. When the water in the drum put sufficient pressure on the air in the hose, it would activate the switch and start the control timer, shutting of the water and starting the wash cycle. If your washer is new enough to show error codes, it may have some other version of this sensor but it will have to have something to say when enough is enough. Look in the control head on top. Good luck.
You have an unbalanced load. This can be due to the amount of items in the drum or the type of items in the drum. Redistribute the items in the drum and restart. If this happens continually, you may have a problem with the drum dampening mechanism.
