You may have a broken inner tub spider. Check for play between the inner drum and the outer tub by moving the inner drum up and down.
If there is excessive play, the spider is broken causing an unbalanced load and therefore no high speed spin can be achieved.
In this case the inner drum would need to be replaced, which means taking the machine almost completely apart. A good tech can do it in about 1.5 hours.

SOURCE: F and then dU flashes
The du error code relates to door/lid that cannot unlock. Check that there is no excessive weight on the lid. In case this is not the issue, you should check the lid switch unit. Good luck !

If the pump is clogged and can't release all the water it won't go into final high spin. Remove lower cover and locate coin catch and unscrew it. Water will come out, so be ready. If it's full of stuff, this is probably the problem.

when empty and off, open the lid and see if you can rotate the inner wash basket by hand. if you can easily, then the clutch is worn. This will prevent the basket from going into a high spin and wringing the clothes out. Replace the clutch by removing the top control panel, removing the clips that hold the cabinet, pull cabinet off, remove drain pump clips and pump, remove motor clips and motor, remove transmission (3 bolts). Now you will have access to the clutch, replace as needed, reverse dissasembly to complete. remember to unplug.

motor coupler-to test restart the washer in it's spin cycle, let the washing machine run for one minute, then open the lid and check to see if the tub is spinning. if it's spinning the coupler is fine. if it is not then the coupler needs to be replaced, can be purchased at any appliance parts store. good luck!
