Maytag Neptune doesn't spin at end

Hi, I have a Maytag Neptune that I've been very happy with. This weekend, it developed a problem where it doesn't empty out at the end of a wash cycle. If I open the door, water pours out. If I select just the spin cycle, it will drain and then spin. Sometimes I need to do 2 spin cycles to get it totally empty. Any suggestions? I'm going to open it up tonight and check for debris/clogs in any of the drain lines, etc.

    Well, I took it all apart. The pump and drain hoses were all clear. I then tested all the vibration sensors, and they were fine.

    I had a side problem where I had got a lot of silt into it when we first moved in, before I added an inline filter to the house, and the softener solenoid was stuck open. I back flushed it and blew it out good with an air compressor. The hose filters were clogged up pretty bad, so I cleaned them and blew them out.

    I then re-assembled it all, and double checked all the connections to be sure none had wiggled loose. I connected it and ran the diagnostics on the different valves and the spin test and they all were fine.

    I've run 2 loads through it so far and they've all worked fine, so I'm hoping it was a lose connection as nothing I messed with really should have impacted what was happening.

    I'll be back if it still happens.

Of course, did you find anything clogging your outlet filter, this is most likely the problem. The outlet filter needs periodic cleaning, according to your usage.

My Neptune washer doesn't empty all of the water. Is it suppose to hold water?

The Maytag Neptune front load has a liquid counter weight that makes it sound as though it is not empty. This is a normal sound, they all sound like that, even mine.
