Question about Washing Machines
Your pump may be on its last legs, but most likely you have a restricted drain hose. Either the hose is kinked or pinched. Or the insde drin to you pump is cloged with a piece of clothing like a sock.

The problem is your drain pump not working, or it may have a broken impeller blade. Even just a chipped edge of an impeller blade could prevent it from being able to pump out all of the water. Either part would likely be part of the same replacement part assembly, so it would not really matter.
If the machine is still under warrenty, then I strongly encourage making use of that, since often the replacement part can cost nearly half the value of the machine or more, usually between $75 - $190 depending on the age and the model.

tyr removing the lower acees panel from the uint , ther is a "button trap" located there to catch debris from entering pump assy, chances are its clogged and if it cant drain all the water it wont go into high speed spin, also you MUST use an HE detergent. HE detergent specifically designed for front loading washers

My Maytag Neptune MAH5500B or MAH5500BWW wouldn't spin either. It would go all the way through the wash cycle, agitation and all, as mentioned before, the spin cycle would start at the 9 minute mark, and get down to the 7 minutes then drop directly to 0 with no spin at all.
After hours of investigation it turned out the balance load switch was corroded. This switch is accessible through the front panel of the washer. The door must be removed and the front panel comes off, this switch is directly under the wash drum where there is a little electrical plug and switch which rests on top of stabilizer styrofoam. The connection was being made but there was green corrosion, and evidently the switch box was corroded within. When bypassed, the washer spun perfectly.
Hope this helps someone else out there - I was horrified to think that this washer would end up more landfill as it wouldn't be worthwhile to pay hundreds for a new motor control board as had been suggested was the problem.
