New Samsung Wasging Machine Model:- WD-J1255R/YNG not functioning

your drain pump seems to be obstructed. If water is still in the drum, no spinning will take place. Remove pump and check the impellar for obstruction and the 2 pipes connected to the pump. make sure they are clear by blowing into the 2 ends. If you are able to, it would help to test the pump before you put it back into the washing machine.

Water appears in drum after wash cycle is finished.

if you remove the front cover there is a drain plug that holds change and lint paperclips etc, it fills up and gets plugged and wont go throught the drainig pump. if you find this and clean it out you will be good for another 6 months...its important to check pockets before washing

Water appears in drum hours after being emptied

could be several reasons...condinsation, if small amount of water moisture try leaving door ajar and see if evaporation takes care of it then you will know and it's possible that your water inlet valve has some "dirt" trapped in the seat and allowing water to seep into washer even though unit not calling for water
