The machine is a Samsung front loader, about 7-8 years old.
Lately I have noticed that sometimes it has trouble spinning, sometimes it will not spin at all and comes up with a UE error which I have looked up and it is a unbalanced load error. And when it gets to the spin cycle the time goes down to 7 min but then it jumps back to 11 or sometimes 9 or 8, then the time goes down to 7 min again and then back to a higher time.
I have tried small, normal and bigger loads and it doesn't matter how much clothes are in the drum it still does not go into full fast spin most of the time. I have also made sure that the machine is leveled.
And I have checked all the filters and checked to make sure the machine drain all the water. The problems seems to be getting worse with time.
Dont know what else to do. Any one have any answers for this problem??

It sounds like the belt on your machine is slipping. When the the machine tried to do a spin cycle and if the belt slips the machine thinks that the drum is going out of balance and it might not do a fast spin or spin at all.
Take the top lid off and have a look at the condition of the belt.

This is a belt for all Samsung front loaders:

Just took the top off. The belt looks ok looks wise but when I push on it it feels a bit slack and it came off really easy. So you might be right about the belt slipping.
I'll try replacing the belt.

Just an update.
Received the belt yesterday and the wife did about 4 loads of washing now with out a problem.
When i compared the new and the old belts together, the old belt was very stretched compared to the new belt.
