Re: Samsung Washer WF306LAW stopped draining and won;t...
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.

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.
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.
I found MayTag has a full report on this washer. https://secured.whirlpool.com/Service/SrvTechAdm.nsf/2cd44500d572193285256a45004fd9d6/8169153c018494398525729c0057a4d2/$FILE/Samsung_Frontier_Washer.pdf
The part number is DC97-10417A and can be ordered at samsungparts.com
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.
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 spinn 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
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.
can you hear the pump making any noises,if you can (humming sound)then it may be blocked with lint,coins etc.if the pump isnt making any noises then it may be faulty or a broken wire to the pump or you have a no drain button pressed in . hope this helps
