There are several things you can try. First of all try to spin the tub manually. If it spins then its probably a clutch problem otherwise there may be a nut, bolt etc., that might be preventing the tub from spinning. If none of this works then check the belt it is most likely to be the culprit..

My amana washer barely spins but makes a jackhammer sound in spin cycle

The "jackhammer" sound is that the load (and hence, the "basket" it's in) is out of balance, causing the basket to spin in an eliptical motion.
Some washer (like mine) will momentarily shut off when it senses this, and restart when the basket slows down enough to make the out of balance condition go away, unless it starts in again, then it'll shut down again and restart.
If this is what is happening, the washer keeps shutting off and restarting, making it appear that the basket is spinning slowly, as it never gets up to full speed.
Try redistributing the load when this happens.
Also, the usually is a spring arm with a rubber "snubber" on the end that presses against the top of the basket, to help dampen an out of balance condition.
The spring over time weakens, and the dampening action is lessened.

Loud clunking, banging sound during the spin/drain cycle.

the make , model and year are missing but if it is a top loader unit , it indicates that the tub suspension bar motion absorbers have broken and need replacing

I have a Whirlpool WFC7500V Front Load Washer and after the load is done the clothes are still soaking wet, is there a step i am missing why are the clothes still really wet. Do i need to drain or is the...

What spin cycle are you using? Try a faster spin option. (The wrinkle release setting uses more water and a lower spin speed.)
Try putting fewer items in a load in the futute and make sure it isn't unbalanced. (One really heavy item could imbalance the load and shift the spin efficiency.) Redistribute the clothes and run a Drain/Spin cycle.
Make sure to use HE detergent (don't use more than the recommended amount of detergent).

The other issue to check is if the machine is draining properly. Check that the drain hose isn't clogged. Also check the voltage at the washer - low voltage will result in a slower spin cycle. To correct this, you probably will want to call an electrician.

I hope this helps.

There is a knocking sound on the left side of the washer when it goes to spin cycle.

Sounds like the tub is hitting the wall of the washer. One thing to check is if the cloths are evenly distributed in the washer. If to many are on one side then it will spin out and bang. Also make sure the washer is level. If it is leaning one way to far it will also spin in that direction. You might want to check the belt as well. If that belt is severely worn and has stretched out then it will spin in a wider motion and bang the wall of the washer. These are the thing to check that would cause the problem described.

When the washer spins with a heavier load like towels or jeans, it makes a horrible sound off and on. It sounds like something rough scraping against another rough surface. Is this something my HVAC...

Sounds like the bearings may be going out. Quick check for bad bearings: Open door, grab spin basket lip, yank on it; up and down works best. If you can get your fingers on the white plastic outer tub lip try to determine if the metal spin basket is moving independently from the outer tub in any motion other than round and round. If so you're rear bearings are becoming worn and will be especially noisy under a heavy load.
