The heavy jacket prevented the washer from spinning at a rapid pace, so I added a heavy bathrobe to absorb some of the water and to balance the load. The washer then spun very quickly and drained out all the water.

SOURCE: spin speed too slow
CHECK THE PUMP. I had the same problem and after removing the pump (fairly easy) found a clump of stuffing from a hole in a quilt jammed in the impellor. After removing and installing the then cleaned out pump it worked perfectly. Suggest using a regular stainless steel hose clamp in place of the factory clamp that is hard to put into position on the hose to the pump. Be sure to put the clear plastic bag back in place over the pump assembly to protect the pump from water damage.
Or the stater motor on the back has lost a phase because one of the windings has shorted. If the cycle sounds normal and it doesn't sound like it's struggling then the problem is probably not going to be related to the motor. I've found most of these cases to be related to the control board itself.

It's a bad wax motor inside the door latch. The diagnostics are buggy and do not test it properly. It should measure about 1.5K ohms, and when 120 VAC is applied to it, it should extend in about a minute. Part number 12002535 is $10 to $15.

Have you pulled the pump and checked for obstructions? There may be something in the pump itself; you will need to check that...
If your problem can't solve, keep in mind that the error codes means physical wrongs, so, E43 is a door-locking problem or "board comunication problems".
I hope this helps.
