Number of things,for a washer to not spin out.
Broken door latch (if door doesnt lock)
Bad computer board
Clogged clean out filter (left hand side of front load washer,careful, will dispense a lot of water.
Sensor where the rotor is at sometimes causes it.
Unfortunately Samsungs and Lg washer are manufactured closely the same,also lasting 2-5 years speaking from experience,I have a old school washer and dryer,never looked back.
There is only one thing I can say about this piece of crap SAMSUNG washer...I absolutely hate it!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Two years old and even when I take out 50% of the clothes and put it on spin only it still fills up with water and now will not even engage in the spin cycle. I have NEVER been this disappointed in a product! It was not one of the cheap washers either. It will wash for three or four hours on the same load. Why don't they make a bypass fix for this sorry product. I hate it! Hate it! Hate! Will NEVER buy another Samsung washer.
Maybe it's time for a class action law suit I have the same problem and I see no solutions here! I have a model number WA456DRHDWR/AA serial number <Hidden>. I called and they setup service, which is fine, then the Service calls and says it not under warranty any more even though I just had the recall done in December of last year. I will never recommend A samsung product to anyone because of this unit . It is uncalled for! the warranty should be as long as the one on the motor .. But since you most likely do not make the motor it's probably easier to give a longer warranty on it...
I have the same problem as you Constellation, however, I have no mechanical skills. It seems Samsung has sold a line of washers with a defective trait for years. It would seem I have been duped.
Could you please update the link above. My front load Samsung washer shows unbalanced with every load and won't spin and drain all the water out. There is no way every load is unbalanced.
Machine is only 4 years old and the drum broke a heavy duty commercial machine and now it's junk.
Samsung will do nothing to fix it is will never buy anything from Samsung again. Nothing at all
