Question about Washing Machines
I do not know your model but on most machines when they do not spin fully it can normally be sorted by cleaning out the filter if there is one.also check the drain outlet pipe and drain for any obstructions even a kinked hose.There may be a fault down at the motor when the brushes have worn down too far but hopefully the first checks will get you out of bother.

Thanks, Master Tech; I was having the same problem as Jason. When I put the pen in place, I realized that the motor was running, but the tub wasn't spinning (which I thought it was because of the sound of the motor). So, I put my hand in and gave it a push/spin and it started turning on its own after I did that.. So, I'm going to let it run and see what happens when the cycle is done. At least its a start in the right direction!

The following link explains the "F02" error:
More than likely you have debris in your drain pump. This is a common issue with these washers. It doesn't take much to damage the drain pump. If something has been clogged in the pump for an extended period of time, the pump still may not work properly, even after cleaning it out. So...if you follow the advice in the link and you still have drainage issues, you will probably have to replace the drain pump.
If you require a new drain pump, they can be ordered on line at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in your model number and look for item number 10 (part #8181684) under the "Pump and Motor Parts" heading. Replacing the pump is not difficult. If you need instructions, follow this link:
I hope you find this information helpful. Please let me know if you require additional assistance.

you may have spin tube grease leaking into the clutch causing the clutch to slip during spin and then not getting up to full spin speed. it is common and will require you to replace the clutch. its not an easy job for the do it yourselfer as you need to remove the transmission to get to the clutch.

The clothes are wet after spinning
When the clothes are wet at the end of a cycle, check these:
Motor coupler To test the motor coupler, re-start the washer in its spin cycle. Let the machine run for a minute, and then open the lid and notice whether the tub is spinning:
Alternatively, there could be clothes caught between the inner and outer tubs. Read the "It spins but won't pump" section of the "It won't drain" section. Also, there could be other things that cause friction on the drive train. Seek the assistance of a qualified appliance repair technician.
Siphoning If the water that pumps from the machine goes right back into the machine after the spin cycle, it may be because your washer is siphoning the water from a laundry tub with a slow drain, back into the washer. Try to improve the draining of the laundry tub. (Is there something stuck in the drain?) Also, be sure the drain hose doesn't reach more than about 4 inches into the laundry tub. If it does, cut off the excess.
Water-inlet valve Water-inlet valves eventually fail. One problem that may develop with a water-inlet valve is that it can no longer completely shut off when the electricity is turned off to it. Then, the valve may leak and drip water into the clothes tub--you may notice that your washer has water in it when you haven't used it for a few days. To fix this, replace the valve.

Check and see if the bowl spins as fast as the agitator (hold a screwdriver in the lid limit switch to bypass) You may also notice clothes are severely knotted. If the bowl is slow and agitator fast then ther is a problem with the gearbox. If you know how to fix this, or remove the gearbox, please let me know.
