John, there is debris of some sort inside your drain pump restricting or impeding the flow of water. Since it still has water in the tub, the computer won't allow the unit to activate high speed spin. The blockage will have to removed before the unit can be operated again. You'll have to pull the back cover off the machine to access the pump. When you remove the hoses, there will be a flood of water... If at all possible, move the washer outside to do this. If you can't move it, figure out a way to clamp off (pinch) the intake hose tightly. I've used 2 small open end wrenches and a pair of vice-grips before. Take the 2 wrenches and pinch the hose, then secure them tightly in place with the vice-grips. This'll get it going again. BTW, your washer has no belts... all electronic drive.

sounds like drain is plugged. this is a fairly easy fix,and you actually get paid to do it. unscrew the bottom panel of your washer should be 3 screws on the very bottom then you will see a white plug that is about 2 1/2" unscrew it (make sure you have a bowl under it water will leak ) and pull it out. this is where you get paid you will find all kinds of change and junk just clean it out reinstall and your clothes will be a lot drier after the spin cycle

This is the electronic washer. Unplug for two minutes, plugin then open and close lid 7 times. This will reset motor. Also make sure belt is not broken.

I had the same problem and solved it without all the expensive recommended parts. I unplugged the cord from the outlet and listened for a "click" (motor reset) and then plugged it back in. I then raised and lowered the lid several times to break the magnet contact. turned it on and then it worked fine.
