If your washer is not spinning fast enough, or barely spinning at all, this is usually a symptom of any one or all of the following: 1. Bad gearcase (transmission). 2. Bad basket drive, with which the transmission couples to under the agitator. 3. Bad clutch/brake assembly. Which mounts on top of the gearcase under the basket drive. Usually a tell tale sign of a gearcase beginning to fail is the sign of an amber colored oil coated under the washer or inside the casing. I said, "usually". It doesn't always happen, but if you notice any signs of oil, the gearcase is shot. The basket drive and clutch assemblies are harder to diagnose and require some disassembly of the washer and the removal of the gearcase to inspect. Let me know if this helps.

Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean. There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too.
Rate me pl.....if helped.

access panel in frount, 2 screws to take out. if you washer is not spinning but washes try the tension pulley is not tight enough. to cured problem of not spinning if tension is not tight. check if the plastic pulley is turning if not get it loose and put greases on it. there should be a metal sleeve fasten in the pulley. but if it is rusted to the other shaft it spins on you will never know it was to be fasten in the plastic pulley. i broke them lose and greased tighten the spring and it should work good. time to time might want to grease it.
for the other person if you machine sounds like it is winding to go in to outer space, it most likely the bearings. they are 100 each and there are 2 of them. plus seals. i used mine for a year before i locked up, if you like the performances of that machine get it fixed. the $1200 front loader i just bought went back and the old AMANA is getting fixed.
