I decided to buy a replacement PCB board from fleabay. The board was advertised as brand new, the guy selling it had a number of samsung spares for sale and said he was a Samsung engineer. I fitted the board into my machine started a wash and hey ho guess what still the same issue, the machine would pause mid cycle. We cant do without a machine so we put the washer out for the scrap man (best place for it) and went out and purchased a new machine. No its not a Samsung. We have a number of Samsung devices round the house incl phones, tvs microwaves sound systems but from now on thats where we draw the line. Good Luck to all that's experiencing the same issue I hope you get it resolved. Shame on you Samsung for not supporting us with you inferior product.

We have exactly the same issue, we had the machine replaced within the first 4 weeks due to a different issue, the replacement machine has been playing up for a while pausing in mid cycle, we contacted Samsung who have told us that we didnt register for the 5year warrenty, we done this over the phone as the website wouldnt allow us to register it but Samsung are saying that they have no record of this, Samsung will not cover this fault on our machine now, we went to Currys and they want £100 Labour plus parts, time for watchdog to get involved i think.
