Question about Samsung Washing Machines
Cleaned out the drain line.
Have you check the solenoid (water-out) to be certain it is not in the closed position. This is an out-valve that opens when in the spin cycle and it is controlled by the timer circuit.

The waste pipe at the back needs to be at the correct height. If it is too high the water may not get out. Usually you need to ensure that it is about 3/4 as high as the washer. Some houses have a pipe sticking up at the correct height to pop the waste pipe into. AT the same time it shouldn't be placed too low because this will make water drain out too soon.

I have determined one of the reasons ( I feel this is the primary reason) why many BOSCH washing machines will not drain the water, Bosch uses the same drain pump in many of their 500-800 series washing machines, part number 436440. The drain pump is a electrical controlled magnetic driven pump. Simply a electrical current produces an electrical field which a magnet rotates, spinning the pump blades. I have determined that the internal seal on the pump part is allowing water to leak into the magnet area of the pump. This is causing corrosion, and water build up around the magnet, interfering with the magnetic field. How I came to this conclusion. After removing the end of the pump, and allowing the water to drain out, drying out the pump, the pump will work as advertised. But of course the pump cannot be used in this condition. A new pump is required. To determine this yourself, if the machine is not under warranty (good luck getting service). Unplug machine, remove back panel, unplug the drain pump, remove drain pump (separating the drain pump from the large plastic holder, there are three screws holding it to the housing). You can shake the pump, and if water comes out of it this is most likely the problem. Now hook the pump back up to its electrical feed, and place it on a rubber sheet. Set the machine to drain, if the pump attempts to spin then stops, or hums this is the problem.

I've had the same problem...you can purchase a replacement lid switch at your local appliance parts store for about $35. Fortunatly, the sales person at the appliance store had diagrams and provided instructions to replace the switch. I was able to finish the job and fix the switch in less than 1 hour. Good Luck.

SOURCE: UL Code
Solved the unbalanced problem - open the top of the machine (press in with a flat putty knife about 3" in on the front on each side while lifting up as there are 2- 1" wide catches). Once both sides are unlatched, raise the lid then slightly lift the rear of the lid so that it fits into the curved part at the top of the hinges then open all the way - tape the lid to the top so it doesn't flap about and scotch the lid to keep it from falling back down on you. Now, look around - see all that rust? The rust has fallen into and gotten underneath one or more of the 4 white plastic suspension "ball joints" which have probably totally dried out by now from their factory grease because of the water, bleach, and rust particles. Having someone help you, simply lift up on one of the 4 corner suspension rods - gravity and weight is all that holds them down. The white ball will lift out of the socket and still be attached to the rod. Clean out the rust, lightly sand the "socket" with emery cloth, then slop in a fingerful of grease. I used automotive wheel bearing grease with graphite in it. Also scrub off all embedded rust on the white plastic ball. Lower that corner back into the newly cleaned and greased socket and repeat for the other 3 corners. Now when you move the tub around notice how the balls pivot in their sockets like they are supposed to. When they were dry and rusty they wouldn't move enough to allow the tub to twist like it should so it slammed around. Now, shake your head in disgust that after only 2 years there is so much rust that you wonder if it will make it another year before falling apart, close the lid, and try another load. That totally solved my off-balance problem where even a single handkerchief would give the UL error. It is still a finicky machine, but at least once again works like it did when new.

Hello, problem here is the spin control board is bad. Remove panel under the door and you can locate the spin control at the rear right of the machine screwed to the floor. Replace it and you will be all set. Mike

If you have got rid of all the water, and it still will not spin, then the odds are it is the brushes in the motor that need replacing.
Quite a common problem
