the possibility of it being the timer is most likely..as the rest of the cycles remain ok.. if you require a timer,you can get one here at this link..(click the link here) http://www.easyapplianceparts.com/AdvancedModelSearch.aspx?ModelNum=HAV4657EWW&mfgModelNum=&fkMfgID=1

If you are saying that after the washer has finished you are left with wet cloths and water left standing in the tub ,then your pump is broken or as was my case I opened the back and removed the pump only to find a small piece of wicker that had come off my laundry basket . It was keeping the pump from turning .I removed it put everything back in place and saved over $380.00 . I hope this helps good luck .

Hello c bellone,
If you rotate the clutch pulley by hand CW the tumblers should rotate in the wash basket. If you rotate the clutch pulley CCW the tumblers will rotate until the clutch spring comes under tension then the wash basket will begin to turn CCW and the tumblers will stop rotating because the transmission rotates with the wash basket. Do you have this action?
The clutch has been an issue for many are you taking dc or UC errors to the display? This clutch incorporates a Drawn Cup Roller clutch bearing (one way clutch bearing) designed to rotate freely CW and lock up CCW to rotate the spinner shaft in spin cycle rotating the wash basket/transmission CCW. You are halfway thru the clutch removal process, I would drop the clutch out and inspect the roller clutches, clean them up with WD-40 and some light bearing grease. If they are rusted up beyond clean up and or the clutch spring is broken as in this post you will have to replace the clutch. You will know what you are up against once the clutch is out and opened up for inspection.
Here is the process I use for clutch removal;
Access and remove the Clutch for maintenance
Disconnect 120VAC power cord.
The Service Manual for reference. Sears Parts Direct for reference.
Raise the top of the machine. Insert a flat blade putty knife approximately 2.5” from the left and right sides of the washer top, depress the spring tabs securing machine top to the washer base. See page 33 of the SM for putty knife insertion point.
Remove the front panel see page 41.
3/8 inch socket and socket wrench to remove clutch pulley bolt. Page 47 of the SM
1/2 inch socket or wrench to loosen Drive Motor tension bolt.
5/16 nut driver or 5/16 ¼ socket on an extension to remove front panel see page 41 of the SM.
1. Lean the washer back and blocked in that position for a better reach angle. Rotate 3/8” clutch Pulley Bolt CW to remove clutch bolt.
2. Follow SM page 46 & 47 to remove clutch pulley.
3. Remove 4 screws holding plastic cover on clutch, inspect clutch spring to make sure it is not broken. Inspect roller bearings clean up with WD-40 and re-lube with bearing grease.
4. Replace white bearing plate into clutch pulley hub, insure key slot slips into clutch Spring pin in clutch hub.
5. Replace Clutch plastic cover with 4 screws.
6. Reseat clutch on spinner shaft and rock back and forth while lifting clutch with upward pressure to reseat clutch. When seated properly you will feel a 1/16-1/8" gap between the Pulley face and shaft end as mentioned and shown on page 47 of the SM. On reinstallation, tighten Clutch Pulley bolt CCW to 96” pounds 8’ foot pounds (Snug no torque wrench required).
7. Do a quick wash and make sure clutch runs true with no wobble or clicking sound. If the clutch has not been seated properly it will spin off. If this happens go to page 16 of the SM Board Output Test and turn on Drain Pump in Service Mode to pump out excess water.
8. Repeat steps 6&7 if the clutch has excessive noise or spins off.
My clutch open up for clean up.

Hello rockhead255 ,
I'm an owner like you and will try to help.
Error code 10 states Unbalance or cabinet hit detected during final spin, which prevented the spinner from exceeding 500 rpm
Did you notice if you took some large tub swings as the washer tried to spin up?
I suspect a Clutch malfunction. Pump the water out of the tub with the Board Output Test with the drain pump in service mode. With the wash tub empty open the lid and see if you can rotate the wash basket CCW with one finger. You mentioned “”Tub does not turn by hand””. Is that in the CCW direction?
You should be able to rotate the wash basket with your pinky finger with very little force. The wash basket will not rotate CW. What amount of rotational resistance do you detect in the CCW direction? With the error 10 reported I would drop the clutch out of the machine per my step by step procedure at this post. Try the One-Way roller clutch bearing clean up and re-lube as I discuss in that post and see if you can restore the machine to normal Spin operation. Once you drop the clutch out of the machine we will have a better feel for the issue.
You can try the TDS check in the SM but I feel it is a Clutch issue at this point of troubleshooting. Good troubleshooting using the machines diag code listing.
Post back if you havd need additional questions or help.

Open the washer lid and see if you can rotate the wash basket CCW this is the Spin direction.
The wash basket should not rotate CW. If the the wash basket will not rotate CCW then I feel the One-Way Roller Clutch bearing is seized. If you place the washer cycle in a Spin Only cycle I believe you may see the same fail process with no error code.
If you want to DIY the fix Google this Neptune TL Washer FAV6800AWW. That will take you to a FAV6800A Sticky.
In the Sticky: Neptune TL Washer FAV6800AWW 5 post down you will find a link to the Service Manual. You absolutely need the Service Manual to DIY issues with the machine. It's not the best SM but will get you started. I also have repair post in that sticky to help with the most common issues that I have helped owners with. I'm an owner of a FAV6800AWW top load machine.
I feel you will find that the Clutch has failed due to a leaky Tub Seal. A replacement Clutch Pulley will more than likley get you back in service. Once you have the Service Manual you can pull the front cover off drop the Clutch Pulley out and inspect.
I won't offer any more help on this site it is just to difficult to work issues. You can see by past ratings I know the machine and have helped owners. If you are not the DIY type then callin in a Service Repair will cost $65 to $90 range and more than likely they will not have a clue. Go thru the FAV6800A forum here and search the post. i.e. this is typical repair service result for support........ http://www.fixya.com/support/t8683813-6_year_old_maytag_neptune_tl_washer_just
Not hammering service people, most just don't have the hands on knowledge to diagnose machine issues. Once you know the fail point anyone that has very basic mechanical skill sets can repiar the machine. Go to the forum that has the Sticky and open up an issue in the Maytag washer part of that forum and I will help. I scan the forum a few times a day. If you are not into a DIY fix just disregard this post.
