How do I fix washing machine to finish emptying during rinse and spin cycle?

Long shot, but does it fill the same as when new? I would check the atmospheric switch which is a hollow tube that runs down the inside of the drum(not in the wash cage) when the water fills, It pushes air up to stop the fill. It may have gotten clogged. Or partially clogged.

Washing machine takes a long time to end cycle.

When a washing machine takes a long time to complete the cycle, that means that one of the conditions required to complete the cycle takes a long time before being met or detected.

In simple words this means that, depending on what part of the cycle the machine hesitates, you are in one of the following conditions:

1 The water inlet is blocked or restricted.
2 There is a water heating problem, usually thermostat not detecting temperature correctly.
3 There is a drain blockage and drain takes longer than usual.
4 The pressure switch used to detect water level is defective, and timer board does not detect that drain is complete and keeps draining for a while.

1 If possible move the machine and check the inlet hose at the back, ensure that there is pressure, that the hose is not restricted or blocked. Check also for blockage at inlet valve.

2 This must be tested removing parts from washer and using a multimeter. The job is better done by a technician.

3 You can check the drain pump. On most front loader models this is accessible opening a panel at the front lower side of the washer, under the door. On top loads the pump is accessed from behind (also some top loader), and from underneath the washer. Instructions are often described in the manual. The hose or filter housing can be removed to check for blockage.

4 Same as 2, the pressure switch is replaced when there is long drain or water level related problems.

Disconnect power before performing any maintainance.

As first step check warranty status by contacting the manufacturer at the number listed on manual. Long cycle is a fault condition, if your warranty is still valid, manufacturer will send an authorized technician at their expenses.

Here a practical description of the problem. Article is referring to a Maytag Neptune: washing machine takes an unusually long time to complete

What happens when you select the spin, or drain cycle? Does the washer drain the water and commence with the cycle? If the water does not drain then the door will not unlock on it's own. The pull cord should open the door regardless. If the water is not draining, remove the lower right access panel and check the strainer for excess debris. Pleazer Appliance...

Hai I have a hotpoint washing machine model WT761 and it has stopped working .the display is showing F-01.Kindly help me out please.

F01 error code indicates a fault in the motor triac.

This can be a fault in the motor and/or the main control board.

The service manuals suggests the following:-

Check for continuity of motor (Field coil pins 3-5 and armature pins 1-2);

Check efficiency of module connector block J9, motor terminal block and wiringbetween motor and edge connector J9;

Unplug the appliance.

Take the rear panel off.

The main board is bottom left when viewed from the rear.

Take the board out.

Take the plugs off and plug them on again to ensure they are clean, dry and tight fitting.

Check the circuit board for any obvious damage.

Check the motor plug and wiring.

If everything checks ok, I'm afraid you'll likely need a new board, possibly a motor too, and the board will need to be programmed to the appliance after fitting.

Washer won't spin correctly after fitting new bearings

there are no others sensors in the drum, the module (a circuit board) controls the actions of the timer, it may be one or so wires were disturbed at the time of repair, check all connections, any out of balance sensors would only work with a heavy loaded drum? You did not comment as to the motor / drum action when washing from the start of the cycle?
