Question about Amana ALW780QA
It appears to be a 'full speed' spin. All the water is pumped out during initial start of spin. It runs for 3-5 minutes (spin cycle). When the spin cycle stops, I can hear a litle 'water sloshing'. Removing the clothes, most of the top layers (of clothes) are spun 'dry', but the ones at the bottom of the tub are still soaked. There is no visible water standing at the botton of the tub. I removed the hose (from the tub to pump), and inspected the tub opening for obstruction (none visible). Any ideas? (note, this condition was coinsidental with a washing of pants / shirts with a lot of dried drywall 'mud'. Could it be possible that some of the drywall path compound (mud) accumilated at the tub drain, and is preventing a complete water removal during a spin? How to I remove the tub to inspect? Or is the another issue?
You may have blockage in the drain pipe several feet from washer. if you can run spin cycle with hose in different location ex. tub,sink or outdoors. if this works run long snake down washer drain pipe to clean gypsum residual.

he F02 message is a long drain error and it may mean the pump is clogged or bad. You don't provide a lot of detail about if the water is draining out or not but the first thing to check for this error is the drain pump.
The image below shows how to access the pump and remove the filter. This may be your only problem. With the access panel removed you can also make sure the pump is running. Remember to unplug the washer before removing the access panel.
Check the pump for the F02 and make sure you're using HE detergent and there's not excessive suds.
