I'm enjoying this topic. Next time I plan to buy the biggest, most energy inefficient washer I can find. I can't stand these pretty things that don't work.

Hope this helps. I can't imagine the frustration you must feel and hope I can help.

Don't try this stuff yourself! But this does show where some of the problems are.

Thanks to both of you for the help. I did go the web sites and got a few ideas. The first solution did work but it requires a lot manipulation. The second that I plan to try is to manually make some adjustments to the water sensor. But I do applaud you both for a job well done. I was able to get tons of information from the web site and also was comforted that I now know hundreds have experienced the same problem with a Samsung washer. It did raise the question that since four technicians had come to my home, none offered the solutions shown in the video.

Most of these problems started years ago and came from two areas. First it was government energy saving regulations, secondly it was the manufacturers competing with each other to sell more appliances that supposedly save more energy. All of this was done without any consideration of the consumer getting a well made and efficient appliance. As to clothes washers, the consumer actually lost efficiency and the cost of washing clothes has in fact risen. I today's machines the amount (load) recommended is about one fourth as the older agitator machines our parents used ( you figure it out)...... There is one company SPEED QUEEN, that is totally USA made and has the mechanic of those older type washers.

We bought a brand new Maytag three years ago with a biggum capacity and ordinary settings. Nothing energy saving on it at all that I can see. There are still choices.
