Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
I would gently suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor/pump lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters and many machines will not even go to spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside.
Here are my complete and general guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-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 most are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play!
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. Using something suitable like a glove see if it is easy to briefly slow the motor down. If it is easy then the motor is malfunctioning!
If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

Make sure you check to see if anything is caught inside the drain line, or the bottom bellow (black hose that connects from the tub to the drain pump/motor.)

That is actually a DE (drain error). Clean out the filter, located behind the access door on the bottom left side on front of the machine. If there was nothing in the filter, replace the pump motor.

Testimonial: "Thank You, it worked. Made the wife very happy. Thank you again."
The cycle that the machine is stuck in is in fact the empty cycle, just before the spin kicks in. It is staying there because it has a problem evacuating all the water. The machine won't go into spin until all the water is gone and after a set time ( 20 minutes is unusually long, most machines stop after about 10,, but I'm not familiar with Daewoo), the attempt to empty is aborted and the machine stops.
Your problem therefore is either:
The filter for the empty pump is clogged with debris (far and away the most likely) you will need to locate and clean the filter
The EXIT to the drain is blocked, check the empty pipe is not blocked
The empty pump has failed (you would usually expect to hear the pump rumming, but it may not be a noise that you are familiar with).
First and second items are easy to fix, the 3rd is a pump replacement, which isn't that hard, but depends on your level of DIY skill

Possible this is relative of a poor drain time which means a clogged draining pump and system. So it si best to remove and clean the drain pump/filter and reset.
check if the machine drain hose is connected to a outlet which is not clogged when the water is flushed out . Also the washing machine must be slightly tilted to drain to the pump to reduce the drain timing.
Finally check if the machine was overloaded to produce a strain on the motor so as to give an error. If so shut down remove plug remove load , check if the agitator is jammed and reset.
