In my HE3T, this was indicative of the water pump going out. In its 8th year, my HE3T is now on its 3rd water pump.

If this is occurring mostly on heavier loads your clutch may be slipping. If you take a flathead screwdriver and push down the lid switch so the washer will spin with the lid up, grab the inside of the drum. If you can easily stop the drum its most likely a bad clutch. If you tip the washer back and see oil underneath then its probably your transmission leaking oil onto the the clutch causing it to slip (in which case you need transmission and clutch assy). If you see oil I would probably not bother calling a tech it would be a pretty expensive repair.
IF the problem is with the clutch only it may be worth repairing but to replace the clutch you will have to remove the pump, motor, transmission, and the clutch mounts on top. The other less common possibility could be a bad drive block under the inner tub. hope this helps. _MJ_

During the spin cycle it spins correctly until the last 2-3 minutes and then it just fluffs clothes


Some machines used a variable speed slow down process to avoid clothing damage, this removes the items from the outside of the drum where if the clothing was left for a length of time after the cycle has finished it could damage the fibres, this way the clothing is also easier to remove from the machine and promotes airflow over the items

Try this: remove the front lower acces panel(below the door going acroos the lower portion of the washer)
by removeing the attaching screws and pull off, then inside you will see a cylinder shaped unit with a cap with a twist handle on it,this is the filter pump, unscrew the cap to remove the trap and clean out completely, there will be some water in it when you open it so have a towel ready to sop up the water,reassemble everything and try a load of clothes, this will fix your problem. Good luck !

If it goes through the complete cycle o.k. except for the slow spin then the motor itself needs to be checked.
