Washing machine: Samsung WF203ANS/XAC
The washing machine will not always fully drain.
 
I have confirmed the drain pump works.
I pulled it out of the machine, rigged a power cord and connected it directly to the wall.  The pump works continuously until I disconnect it.
 
I have confirmed nothing is clogging the drain line.  From the bottom of the barrel all the way to the tip of the dump tube.
*******************************
 
To trigger drainage I just have to manually put the machine on the "spin" mode.  Usually, when I select spin, it will trigger the drain pump, drain all the water out and then start spinning.
 
Currently, when I select spin:
a) the drain pump does turn ON at all.
 
B) the drain pump will kick ON and start draining
b.1) It drains for a second, or a few seconds, and then stops with water still remaining in the machine.
b.2) It completely drains, and moves on to spin.
 
75% of the time I have situation "a)". 10% of the time I have situation "b.1)", and 5% of the time I get situation "b.2)".  Those are, obviously, rough estimates.

How did you confirm this?  Samsung washer drain pumps are famous for catching quarters (Washingtons, probably Maples, too) causing intermittent drain problems.  

 

If you're sure the drain tube and hose are clear, then the drain pump is intermittently failing under load.  This is not uncommon, either.

Took the rubber hose attached to the bottom of the drum and cleaned it.

Took the dump line and ran a marble through it.  Dropped it in from the top, recovered it from the bottom of the line(where it would have connected to the drain pump.

 

I'm leaning towards a bad or faulty control board.

If there is a plastic connector between the drain boot that comes off the bottom of the tub and another hose that runs to the pump then dropping the marble thru is not a sufficient test.

 

Looking at the diagrams I don't see this intermediate plastic connector between the pump and the drain boot so you may need a new pump.

 

If it does have the plastic elbow connector between the drain boot and another hose that runs to the pump remove the plastic connector and check for a quarter stuck at the elbow, (it works like a flapper valve and will open and close - dropping a marble thru would most likely flip the quarter sideways and let the marble thru like there isn't an obstruction).
