Front cover removed and filter cleaned and clear, back cover removed and belt is taunt, drainage all checked and clear; goes through correct stages of checks and balances which includes couple spins to verify balanced, (so motor appears to power up) water enters and drains no problem but again, the machine will not spin when supposed to and "washing" never really occurs. Unit 13 months old.

This is exactly what my machine was doing, as well. I fixed it by cleaning out the filter in front of the water pump.
Searching here, I found that you can remove the lower front panel (three screws along the bottom edge is all it takes) to get to the filter. With the panel removed, you'll see a round white plastic cover (about 3-4 inches diameter) that screws out. Get a bucket under the cover to catch the water that's in it (could be 2 quarts or more) and unscrew the cover.
The cover pulls out, revealing that is actually a screw-in plastic strainer. I found tons of coins, broken pens, paper clips, etc. in mine when I did this. A lot will be deep inside the black rubber hose that connects this filter housing to the washer drum. You can rake the stuff out with a bent wire clothes hanger. Shaking the black hose will help hurry the junk along and out of your machine. Screw the cover back on after the clean out and your machine should go back to normal.
Thinking about it, front loaders will have lots of small items flushed into the pump compared to top loaders. Coins you alway found in the bottom of the drum in a top loader, they all wind up in the filter of a front loader. And once it slow the drainage to a crawl the machine will shut down multiple times when it can't drain the water out completely, and it will never step up to it's max spin speed with all that water still in the drum.
pump is blocked check your filter at the front some have a small drainage tube there to remove the water. failing that tilt back machine slighty open door and remove with a jug, remove filter uscrew and pull and check for foriegn objects i.e coins screws,whilst tilted back squeeze the two rubber tubes to the pump to make sure they are clear or unclip if need be MAKE SURE POWERS OFF lay some towels down sit machine back down slowly there will be excess water and with filter out run machine SPIN ONLY if it does you've solved your problem also check your waste and outlet pipe your waste could be pushed too far down the outlet pipe 6" is adequate enough.good luck
Plug off the mains. The filter on your pump is probably clogged with lint and stuff. You have to remove the bottom front panel, 3 torx screws underneath.The panel will drop and come off.Drain off the excess water from the drain pipe you see. The white filter cover is right in front. Get yourself a good plastic bag to collect water. Unscrew the filter cover and twist the filter out. Clean out all the stuff and put it back in carefully. Check your pump too.
First check your kitchen drain (or wherever your washer is installed)by pouring a good amount of water into it, to see if it is clear. Try snaking it out.

On some models the filter is located ‘inside’ the big hose from the bottom of the tub.This takes more time to clean. Check out your pump too, comes after the filter; there could be anything clogging the impeller. Check motor brushes, if less than one centimetre long, replace.
The belt is located in the back of the machine
You have to remove the top of the machine and then remove tha back cover. then you can see where the belt is, you will need some tools to replace the belt a socket or wrench us needed to adjust the motor pulley position so that you can get the new belt in place then you need to move it back to tighten the belt so it wont slip. its not a difficult job just make sure its disconnected from the power when you do it
My Bosch Nexxt Essence front load washer will not drain. I changed the lint filter, and insured that the drainage hose was free of debris. I removed all the wet clothes, wrung out the excess water, and redistributed the clothes. Still, no draining or spinning. Initially there was a humming sound, but now there is no sound at all when I try to restart the drain or spin cycles. All the lights are appropriately "on".
