nF means that washer tried to fill but was unsuccessful. Water supply valves needs to be fully open. Lines may be kinked or screen by the hose hookup at the washer end may be restricting flow. Check to ensure the screens are cleaned by removing hose and pull screens and clean them then try the washer again

Actually there should be a little door you can access at the bottom front to clean out your pump filter, I'm including my washers pictures. 1) You first open the little door at the bottom. You do not need any tools, just something to drain the water in to. 2) Unscrew the hose closure, put your hose down into the drain bucket. Drain all the water out, you may have to empty the bucket so you can get the hose lower next time. 3) Next unscrew the filter itself. Get anything out inside the hole, in my case it was a toothpick, I take a paper towel and dry out any grit or hair. 4) Put your hose closure back on, it is held in a clip, Then screw the filter back in. That's it. I would also recommend cleaning out the drawers that hold soap, bleach and fabric softener. Also clean around the rubber ring, it will help your washer last longer. Hope this helps you

I don't know if I have the same model SAMSUNG front loader, but I have a similar problem. The door has decided to stay locked at the end of the cycle. I can turn it off and on and even send it through another cycle, but at the end of the washing, it drains, goes to END but does not go the extra step of unlocking, like it usually would about 1min after ending the cycle.
My clothese have been through about 6 different cycles, hoping it will magically clikc open at the end. I assume they are very clean, but getting dizzy.
Any help out there?

You need to check the drain filter located in front of the machine at the bottom, behind a trim panel or a service door. If the problem occurs again the machine is faulty and must be repaired. Parts such as drain system, drain pump, pressure switch and control panel may be responsible for drain problems.
Check the position of the drain hose. Ensure that the height is as specified by the manual or you get siphoning and drain does not end.
Access the drain filter. With most front loaders this located in front at the bottom in a corner, there should be a trim or an access panel.Top loaders have an access panel at the back, or more commonly the pump is accessed from underneath, bending the appliance on one side and securing it.
The machine has a pressure switch. It is a sensor connected to a long thin rubber hose. The pressure switch is often in control assembly. Clean the hose and the switch. One way to test the pressure switch is by blowing into the switch, but manufacturers say this must not be done as you can damage a good switch.The pressure switch is difficult to test in full. Testing is done either reading voltages while machine is working or reading Ohms at the switch with tub empty and full. For safety reasons I suggest users to avoid performing tests or maintenance that must be done with power on.
Here a page about drain/spin problem.
Start checking drain hose and drain filter. If machine is a front loader the drain filter access is located behind the door at the front bottom side of the machine.

My fabric softener intermiitently was left with clear water in the tray. The serviceman replaced the tray which did not fix the problem, he then replaced the valve assembly. That fixed the problem for about a year and now I am experiencing the same problem. Being the unit is now out of warranty, I purchased a valve assembly and replaced it but what I found in the process was that the real problem was that after removing the filter screen where the hose connects I found a SECOND mesh filter that was plugged up. I removed it with a needle from the edge so I didnt damage the screen. I think you could also just used a spray bottle with some water and a Q tip to clean. I wasted $50 on a valve assembly, but I did discover this second filter screen that is not mentioned in the user manual. Hope this helps someone because I have not seen this solution posted anywhere.
