Question about Samsung WA5451ANW 4.7 cu. ft. Top-Load Washer
Sounds like your washer does not empty enough water for the spinning to stop. Have you check that the filter(s) are not clogged?

SOURCE: Machine stops with SE code
That code (5E, not SE) means the drainage is clogged. The code appears after 15 minutes of trying to drain the tube (not sure that´s the word, may be turbine, barrel...). check the lateral filter (a big plastic twist-off cap) for any solid that may be clogging the drainage

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
It could be that it will not fill because it has not drained completely.
Sorry but I do not know your particular machine BUT I would suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters. The motor is unable to drain all of the water in the allotted time.
Here are my complete, general pre-typed guidance notes for checking filters and motors ;-0)
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!) and held in by a round cover/knob.
REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT!
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. If it doesn't work then the motor is malfunctioning!
Hope the filter is the problem and good luck!

You may want to check your drain to be sure there's not a clog/partial clog when draining out the water. Also, you may want to check the filter and possibly clean it. A partially clogged filter may cause this problem. And, you might try...turning off the unit for 10 seconds and turn back on...select Spin Cycle...press Start/Pause to drain the water. Good luck and hope this helps.

I know this isn't the solution you were hoping for but here is the manual for your machine:
You say it rotates L & R...do you mean it agitates but the timer isn't advancing?
