If there is a blockage in your drain pump filter, then the washing machine will not be able to get rid of water properly. And if it cannot drain properly, the washing machine will not spin. Here are some telltale signs that your drain pump filter is blocked:

Your washing machine may stop spinning if its motor is faulty. If your motor is faulty, the washing machine will usually show an error code on its display. The error code is a series of letters and numbers. The code might look like the aftermath of your cat walking over your computer keyboard. But believe it or not, there is a way to decipher the code and find out how to fix your machine.
Richard wrote (17 March 2017) that his toploader samsung machine seems to have the drain pump turn on when power is on and runs continuously. I have the same problem with mine. Initially I could see that the drain pump had burnt out, changed it but now face this problem. Can these machines be reset (WA13V5)? Or does it mean the PCB needs replacing?
Washing machine motors are ruggedly constructed and designed to last the lifetime of the machine with proper preventative maintenance. In most cases when a washing machine motor does burn out, it is because the owner failed to perform routine maintenance on the machine or because someone performed routine repairs improperly. Basic preventative maintenance is something that almost anyone can do with a little knowledge and a few tools that are probably already in your home tool kit.
The water inlet valve on your washing machine is used to fill the tub with cold, warm or hot water for the wash and rinse cycles. The valve is operated by electric solenoids that are controlled by the timer or electronic control board and the water level control/water level selector switch or pressure switch. If your washer continues to fill during a drain cycle, the water inlet valve could be at fault. To verify that the valve is at fault, unplug the washer when the symptom occurs. If the washer continues to fill, then the inlet valve is defective. If the washer stops filling, then the problem is related to the electrical circuit that controls the valve. 781b155fdc
