The problem you are experiencing is a Long Drain error. You need to check the drain pump reservoir and drain lines for obstructions. the following link explains how:
If cleaning the pump does not correct the problem, it is recommended by the manufacturer that you replace it. It does not take much to permanently damage these small pumps. If anything has been lodged in the intake if the pump for any significant period of time, the motor and/or impeller may become damaged. This results in a pump they "appears" to be running, but may not be pumping anything.
In addition, check the drain hose that runs from the bottom of the wash tub to the intake side of the drain pump. I have personally found small articles of clothing lodged in this area blocking the drain pump. Garments bags are highly recommended for small articles to prevent this.
I hope you find this information helpful. if you require additional assistance, please let me know.

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...

My daughter had the same problem for about two years. A repair man came out and told her to call the company and tell them she wanted it fixed under a recall. She said the computer board had to be replaced and it was recalled due to a flaw in the machine. The service man came back again after she called, and he fixed it for free.
