If your Samsung washing machine does not fill with water, don’t worry; you’ve come to the right place. In this guide, we’ll be explaining the possible causes of this problem, and how to fix it.
Why Won’t My Samsung Washer Fill With Water?
Here are the reasons why your Samsung washing machine does not fill with water:
1. Low Water Pressure
If your Samsung washing machine does not fill with water, it may be due to low water pressure. For your washer to function normally, your home water pressure should be at least 20psi.
Before you call a plumber to check the water pressure, make sure you fully opened the water supply. If it isn’t fully opened, the washer won’t fill as quickly as it should.
If this doesn’t resolve the issue, you should get a plumber to take a look at the water pressure.

2. Clogged Water Inlet Filter
If the filter of your washer’s water inlet hose is clogged, water won’t be able to run into the drum. This may be another reason why your Samsung washing machine does not fill with water.
To clean the water inlet filter, disconnect your washer from its water and power supply.
Disconnect the water inlet hose from the back of the washing machine. Use a pair of pliers to pull out the little mesh filter inside the end of the hose. Rinse the filter thoroughly by running tap water over it and put it back inside the hose.
Once you’ve put the filter in place, reconnect the inlet hose to the washer. After this, turn on your water and power supply and run a wash cycle to see if the problem has been fixed. If your Samsung washing machine does not fill with water after this, try the next fix.
3. Defective Water Inlet Valves
If your washer’s water inlet valves are defective, water won’t flow as it should. In some cases, water may even begin to overfill your washer.
To check if the water inlet valves are defective, turn off your water supply and disconnect the water inlet hoses.
Hold the hoses over a sink and turn on the water supply. This is to ensure that there is nothing wrong with the hoses. Also check the water inlet filter for blockage (read section above).
Connect the hoses back to the washer and try running a wash cycle. If water still doesn’t enter the drum, it can only mean that the water inlet valves are defective and should be replaced.
Please keep in mind that the process of replacing water inlet valves will vary depending on your type of washer. It is advised that you hire a professional technician to avoid risk of damaging your washer.
Note: these fixes apply to all types of Samsung washing machines.
