Why is my Samsung washing machine not draining?

Clogged drain filter
If the washer drain is clear, drain the water out of the washer so you can check the drain pump filter for a clog. To drain it, place the suction hose of a wet/dry shop vac over the end of the drain hose. Pull the filter out of the pump and clear any debris from the filter and pump housing.

Why is my Samsung washer not draining?

If your washer spins, but doesn't pump the water out, the drain hose is probably clogged. If the clothing gets between the tubs, it may then get into the drain hose that's attached to the pump or even into the pump itself. If it's in the pump, you need to remove the hoses from the pump and pull the item out.
