Pump out time of 40 seconds sounds good. No ND error code and you spin up to 850RPM which is max for the machine. You have no standing water in the wash basket.... I'm scratching my head. Could you do a Spin Only cycle with that same wet wash load and set the SPIN for Max Extract. After you start the Spin Only cycle put the machine in Service Mode and watch the RPM range. This cycle sets the display to 12 minutes. Let’s see if the wash load remains wet and what max RPM is reached. ""Maybe the pump is not turning on during the spin cycle?"" You have no standing water in the wash basket correct? I feel the pump is turning on or you would have standing water in the wash basket and the pressure switch would have never indicated an empty condition (Low Level pressure switch contacts) to the Control Board. The Control Board would have stopped the wash cycle with a ND for no drain error code. The pump in the spin cycle will turn on a number of times see if you hear turn on in a Spin Only cycle I just ran a Spin Only light wash load with about 5 gallons of water in the wash basket. Timer went to 12 min.I toggled into Service Mode to watch wash basket RPM.At about the 5 Min mark (toggle in and out of Service Mode) the wash basket reached 850RPM then a few minutes later it stepped down to 830RPM to end of Spin Only Cycle.You don’t have a water valve stuck open or you would flood/over flow of the machine.Did you here the drain pump turn on several times during the Spin Only cycle?

not nessarily if your draining system can handle a non-efficent washer the old top load style drain 42.3 gal of water evey time it fills and for a complete cyc on the h-3 washer only 14 for a complete cyc. When the unit is in the high spin all of the water is already drained and what little water is spun out of the clothing in nothitng to worry about
Check the pump. There is most likely something obstructing it. It is probably a coin or something like that. There should be 2 hoses that attach to pump. One that the water comes into and one that the waterwill discharge. It will be one the the water discharges from. Make sure that you get a pan or bowl so when you disconnect the hose the water will go in this instead of on the floor.
F2 code is a drain issue. If you are not using he detergent you can cause slow draining and then you will get the code. Try using less detergent. Also, try disconnecting the power to the washer to reset controls.
You need to replace your drive coupler. You can get the drive coupler at sears online or your local parts store. After you get the part go to sears online, Put in your model number and it will bring up a diagram to show you exactly where it is. The drive coupler goes between the motor and the transmission, It makes it spin and agitate.
you can remove the top cover of the washer( 3 screws alongside the top rear of unit) and top will slide back and off, the dispensor is right there with sort of a tear drop shaped cam and lever.Make sure thats in tact. start the washer , and youll see it cycle foward and back if broken youll need to replace the part, dont think the line is blocked (if it was youd get fabric softener overflowing out front), im thinkin the water never gets to that area of dispensor. id start with the lever system
