    $Page.CheckOut()
    $spWebPartManager = $web.GetLimitedWebPartManager($pageUrl, [System.Web.UI.WebControls.WebParts.PersonalizationScope]::Shared)

    foreach ($webpart in ($spWebPartManager.WebParts | Where-Object {$_.Title -eq "Sample Name"}))

Try below code:

$pagePath = "Pages/default.aspx"
$pageUrl = $SiteURL + $pagePath
$web = Get-SPWeb $SiteURL
$PublishingWeb=[Microsoft.SharePoint.Publishing.PublishingWeb]::GetPublishingWeb($web)
$Page = $PublishingWeb.GetPublishingPages()

$Page.CheckOut()
$spWebPartManager = $web.GetLimitedWebPartManager($pageUrl, [System.Web.UI.WebControls.WebParts.PersonalizationScope]::Shared)

$wp = $spWebPartManager.WebParts | Where-Object { $_.Title -eq "Sample Name" }
#change the zone according to that in your layout
$wp.ZoneID = "MiddleZone" 
$spWebPartManager.SaveChanges($wp)
$Page.CheckIn("checkin",[Microsoft.SharePoint.SPCheckinType]::MajorCheckIn)
$web.Close()

Use SPLimitedWebPartManager.MoveWebPart to move the webpart to new zone or index. Example:

$zoneId = "5"
$zoneIndex = "NewOrOldZone"
$spWebPartManager.MoveWebPart($webpart, zoneId, zoneIndex);
$spWebPartManager.SaveChanges($webpart);
