    I have the same problem

    I had the same exact scenario, with the same symptoms. These comments where very helpful in solving my problem. However, my blockage was caused by a quarter instead of a bobby pin.
    After reading these comments it took me 30 minutes to fix the problem.

Drained the water from the tub into a bucket. Since the water flowed through the disharge tub I knew there were no obstructions in the line. I then took took the discharge pump out and took it apart. Turned out to be a bobby pin in the motor that was jamming the impeller.

Put it all back together and it works just fine. Took me about 2 1/2 hours total to diagnose and repair.

Samsung front loader washer Model: WF306LAW


The "3E" error code indicates that a high current is detected.
A "3E" error in a Samsung washer indicates that there is an issue with the motor. Restarting the cycle may clear the error, but a service technician should be consulted if the error code appears again.

Washer won't drain


ND means No Drain(ing). First check that the drain hose isn't kinked. Then, check to make sure the drain hose isn't pushed so far down into the standpipe that it is sealed closed. If it is too tight in the standpipe, it will create a siphoning effect. It has to sit freely but securely in the pipe.

My Samsung duet washer is not draining properly and after awhile when it does not drain the message F02 shows on the console. It also does not spin even though it is showing it in the spin cycle.


It won't spin until all of the water is drained out of it. It probably needs the drain pump replaced. Take of the back cover and see if you can hear the pump hum. If you can and no water is coming out of the drain hose, remove the pump and check for obstruction. Alot of the time socks get stuck in the pump. If nothing is preventing the pump from turning, replace the pump.

Whirlpool ultimate care II will not spin


You said,washer is full of water and will not spin. You hear the lid switch clicking. When you start it on spin cycle and hear a hum, the tub moves a couple of inches and then stops...shortly after it shuts off.


Some reasons this may happen
Washer won’t drain or spin
n
1. Is the drain hose clogged, or the end of the drain hose
more than 72 inches (183 cm) above the floor?
2. Is the lid open? ............Also the lid switch can be faulty!!
The lid must be closed during operation.
3. Is there excessive sudsing?
Always measure detergent. Follow manufacturer’s directions.
4 If you have very soft water, you might need to use less
detergent.

Sounds to me like the lid switch can be faulty!!Then it acts like the lid is open.
Huuum

Samsung Silvercare hums, but does not run


FIXED!!!! amen. Attached to the back of the washer was a plastic bag with a tech spec pamphlet. Inside the pamphlet were instructions for running tests via the front control panel on the various cycles to weed out the problem -- fill, spin, drain, etc. The test failed on the draining section citing a problem with the drain pump. So long story short and MANY towels later, I found a small finishing nail in the motor. I had removed the hoses thinking there might be a blockage, but found nothing. So I removed the motor and washed it out. Nothing odd there. So I took the front off the motor and found the nail. It somehow made it through the drain holes in the washer drum but got stuck in the motor.  Thank you Samsung for taping the tech manual to the back of the washer. I could not find it anywhere on the web for this model. After discovering the testing available via the contol panel and the simplicity of the machine, I love Samsung.
