LSR8233JQ washer water drips into tub from fill port

I have a seven year old washer, recently we noticed that the water never shuts off, even if the machine is shut off. It isn't a steady stream, but it never seems to stop dripping. Overnight we'll get around 2-3" of water in the bottom of the tub. Recently we had problems with our well and got some silt and mud into the home water lines. That has been flushed out now but I am wondering if the fill valve could be damaged somehow.

    After running the washer a couple loads the leaking problem has stopped, however there is another problem. When the initial filling of water is occurring the water pressure is fine, however when the rinse cycle is starting there is barely a trickle of water, it takes forever to fill the tub to the point that the rinse cycle actually starts.

Yes the fill valve has been damaged by the silt. If you remove the hoses from the valve you will probably notice that there is either one or both steel screens missing from valve body. You cant remove the screens if they get clogged.

My Front Load Affinity washer shuts off after a few minutes

Good Afternoon Lori - Thank you for your post! Based on the symptoms you are describing, you may either have a communication error from the main control board or the timer itself may not be operating correctly. If you noticed a humming noise, then once again it could either be a clogged drainage hose or pump that needs to be cleaned, or it could possibly have another issue with the door lock assembly. I would personally contact a professional to accurately diagnose the washer to determine the root cause to reduce the risk of unnecessary parts.

Maytag oversize capacity washer just finished filling up the tub with water. Then it had a burning rubber smell. I shut it off and on a bunch of times and there isn't even any sound. (like the mot

You need to observe and check after disconnecting the power , touch the motor, the element area or the control panel or the valves/pump.
If you notice any heat on these , it can be the culprit.
You can proceed to remove the suspected part to discover what was the reason for the burning rubber smell.

Error code nf

The nF error means that the washer isn't filling properly. Make sure that both the hot and cold water inlets are getting water flow. (You can get all cold water washes by connecting the hot to a second cold water line.) Make sure that you have opened the shut-off valves for both inlets to the washing machine. Check that there is sufficient water pressure on both inlets. You need 20-116 psi (pounds per square inch). Use the Samsung supply hoses. Some flood safe hoses may not work (even if new); when damaged, they can completely restrict the flow of water to the washer.

Take off the hoses. Check the filters both on the shut-off side and just inside the washer and clean then of any foreign objects. This is a good time to double check the water pressure at the shut-off valves (have a bucket under the valves.) Replace the inlet hoses if they are more than 5 years old.

Check that the drain hose is not lower than the water level in the washer. This can trigger suction causing the water to flow into the washer and straight out to the drain.

Make sure that the door of the washer is tightly closed. Then press the Start/Pause button.

If the error continues, the failure could be at the washer's inlet valve, the sensor that checks the weight of the drum + water, or the wiring or wiring harness to either one of these items. The computer control board can also fail to "hear and respond" to the above. If you have water in the drum with the nF error, start checking the sensor. If no water flows into the washer, check the valve first.

I hope this helps.

The washer water does not stop flowing into tub even during rinse and spin cycles. We have to shut off water.

The water is supposed to spray in sporatically during spin...but not steady water spray.
If it's steady for the whole spin it is probably the timer spray signals or the wires from the timer to the spray solenoids.
You may need a diagram to assist in tracing these wires.

I Hope this helps you.

Washer leaks water back ln tub after final spin

are you sure the water valve isn't bad and the washer is filling even after it shut off?try this,after you use it shut off the water supply to see if it doesn't have water in it,the only way the water can leak back in is if the end of the drain hose is in say the sink and the water rises up and the hose is in the water and the hose is lower than the top of the washer then it could siphon back into the washer but check to see if you have a bad water valve on the back of the washer,dirt gets in the valve and it can't close all the way and the washer keeps filling even when it's off.let me know what you find.

Why does my washer start with a forcful stream and then cut doyn to minimum flow ?

Check for kinked or clogged water supply hoses(s). Be sure to make sure that if there is a screen-like filter in the supply hoses or at the inlet on the wash machine, that it is clear.

Shut the water supply off. Start the washer to fill on warm wash / rinse to relieve the water pressure in the hose. Shut off the washer. Unscrew the hose connection from the washer and direct both hoses into the washer tub (or other container). Turn the water supply on. Both hoses should discharge water evenly and forcefully, then shut the water off. If the flow was uneven, slow or poor - clear obstructions in / or replace the hose(s). Next, inspect the water inlet on the washer. Clear any obstructions, dirt, etc. Reconnect the hoses and try again. If flow is still lacking, there may be obstructions in water lines or valves INSIDE the machine.

I hope this helps - please rate my reply. Thanks.

Washer doesn't stay running. filled with water, then shut down then filled some more and now stuck doing nothing. If push start button if runs for about 5 seconds then shuts off. 10 years old.

For being 10 years old...I'd say R.I.P Neptune. A 10-year-old dryer is going to cost you more in repairs than the cost of a new machine! And even if it is cheap enough to fix, the parts may be no longer available. I used to work at the Harrisburg PA Sears Parts/Service me...I know.

Drum filling with water

An obstruction in the water-inlet valve may mean that it's no longer able to shut off You can easily open the valve and clean it (from scale or other dirt). Be aware you should disconnect the power cable from machine before doing it !!!! Good luck !
