On wash cycle the error code F 04 is displayed, door will open, clothes are very wet, suggesting ineffective spin/pumping. Some leaking from machine during previous cycle, though not this time so not sure if problems are related.
Im not up to speed with the codes. BUT if you are able to open the door this suggests the bulk of the water has pumped away, so I suspect motor or belt problems. Can you hear the motor spinning when it should be? ie on spin cycle. If not suspect carbon brushes in motor, or even a broken/burned out wire to motor. Replace belt if broken

Good deal your machine is a Series 11. “”Washer has stopped at 26 min with water in the drum. Will not spin or drain. Just sounds like it starts running then stops and repeats.”” I believe this is the start of a Spin Cycle of that Wash Cycle which Wash Cycle did you have selected? Are there any error codes to the LED display like dC or uC? If you stop that wash cycle with the wet load and do a Spin Only cycle will it complete with no error code? Does the wash tub bang around in Spin Only cycle with the wet clothes load? Standing by for some feedback and I will try to help. Here is the Service Manual and parts look up.Can you let me know if you want to try to DIY the fix? FAV6800A/FAV9800A Service Manual for reference.Sears Parts Direct for reference. Rich
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?
