Question about Samsung WA422PRHDWR 4.2 Cu. Ft. VRT Top Load Washer
Ran the washer under perm press and it stopped at 9min spin cycle and will not drain
The most common cause for the machine not to drain is a problem with the drain pump.
It could be that there is something in the hose which is blocking it or something in the pump filter doing the same thing.
Depending on the age of the machine it's also possible that the pump motor needs to be replaced.
Check that the hose is not kinked by the machine being too close to a wall.
I hope this helps.
It's not a big job for an experienced serviceman.....

here is the most common cause for this problem, according to the Samsung repair guy that was here to fix mine today.
On these washing machines it is possible for some debris (in my case it was a small screw from my packet) to make its way passed the drum and into the pump. Once this happens then the impeller of the pump becomes restricted or completely blocked which will result in the above mentione symptoms.
On some machines the pump is on the front, on others at the rear of the machine. In my case it was at the rear, removing the rear panel will allow easy access to it. Have a bucket ready, when the hose is removed from the pump the water will be draining from the machine. 3 bolts and a hose clamp on the inlet and another on the outlet hose. Disconnect the electrical plug from the pump and you can remove it from the machine for cleaning. A very easy job, requiring little skills and not much in terms of tools. (make sure machine is UNPLUGGED from AC outlet)
Remove obstruction(s) from pump and reinstall in reverse order of disassembly. The guy says these pumps are really tough so if you hear it buzzing, trying to go while it's jammed it's a good sign it will work. If not, replacement will be necessary.
Cost me $140. Could have been worse I suppose. Advise: Empty pockets BEFORE washing clothes...
