Question about Maytag Washing Machines
Check the drain hose connected to the pump. If the machine is a front load this should be accessed from a door on the lower front side of the machine. On other models the pump is accessible from back or underneat the machine.
If the machine completes the cycle but does not drain completely, more than the pump the likely responsiblem is the pressure switch. This is the device that detects the water level and is supposed to stop drain when there is no more water.
The pressure switch is difficult to test. Since it is an inexpensive device it is usually replaced. Before replacement try blowing into and cleaning the hose connected to the pressure switch.
The door latch must also be tested. In some case the door latch may interrupt right in the middle of the spin cycle. This happens because of vibrations opening a defective door latch switch.
From your broad description, the cause is most likely the pressure switch.
