Newb here, would like to request a repair manual for a Samsung WF448AAP to track down where the leak is coming from.

Thanks in advance

When using non-HE detergents,
or using too much detergent for the water hardness and soil level of the clothing,
over sudsing will occur.
When this happens there will be leaks out of the detergent drawer and door.
Please advise consumer of proper detergent usage.

I am now an apprentice, Tide for High Efficiency is the detergent that I use. I was reading on another forum about the pump hose might be loose. I just need to know how to get to it.

Thanks

Samsung WF448 washers were known for having a *split/burst* hose---for the SILVERCARE option.

Remove the TOP COVER of the washer

Run a cycle with SilverCare---or---examine the hose which leads from the cluster of water valves (COLD WATER VALVE ASSY) to the SILVERCARE MODULE (located on the center-frame-support).

If a leak occurs from this hose---replace the HOSE.

Always unplug the washer before touching any innards---which may be wet and present a potential shock hazard.
To eliminate:

Musty odor

L-O-N-G cycle times

Dingy/yellowing whites

Suds error message

Slow spin speeds

Intermittent water leaks (from rear of washer)

And other annoying symptoms which vary brand-to brand.

Read below:

The *correct* amount of HE (High Efficiency) detergent that should be used in any front load or agitatorless top load washer with tub sizes 3.0 cu ft and larger is as follows:

HE: (2) Tablespoons Per Wash Load

HE 2X: (1) Tablespoon

HE 3X: (1) Teaspoon

Perform a TUB CLEAN CYCLE every (4) months.

Use: "Tide Washing Machine Cleaner"
