Most common to cause slow spin is slow draining. Remove the lower panel (3 screws) and remove the pump filter. It simply unscrews and can be cleaned of debris to facilitate fast drainage and good spinning results. Be sure to have a few towels handy to catch the little bit of water that remains in the lines when you unscrew the filter.
Sometimes this is a problem with the drain pump filter. It will get clogged with debris which will cause unit to spin slowly. The panel at the front bottom of unit will grant you access to the filter on the pump. Get a bowl or bucket and get ready to catch some water. Good luck
try removing the top cover to the unit, 3 screws across the back. after ermoving check to see exactly wehre noise is coming from. some times a solid "smack " witha screwdriver will quiet teh dispensor motor if needed
In front of the machine below the door you have a panel. There are 3 torx screws holding it from under. Unscrew and pull panel down & then towars you. You will see the pump assembly right in the centre big black hoses.
You need a pair of pliers & a shop-vac if you have one, or towels & a bucket. Use the pliers to unscrew the pump filter, it is white in colour. When you unscrew this water will begin to leak out; use towels or shop-vac to mop up. Do this till all the water is mopped. Remove the drain trap completely, you will find all sorts of junk, clean out completely & refit carefully, in reverse order.
Our machine was giving the HF code at 37 min after over filling with water. I unplugged the machine, popped the top (took the 3 torx screws off the back) pulled the small hose off the pressure switch sensor (round sensor on the upper back right of the machine) and blew it out just by mouth. It obviously cleared some junk. It works fine now. (also unplugged the 6 wires on the sensor, turned it around and blew on that and heard it clicking, so I knew that was ok.) Hope this helps someone.
make sure u are not under loading the washer with just one or two items and that the load is fairly balanced or else the machine will not go into high speed spin as to not go completely off balance and walk across your floor if that doesnt fix it you might need a new ccu or motor control board probably the second one and make sure u are using HE detergent and not too much because suds will lock the pump up which will not spin with water in the unit
