Hello Roger.
Please do the following checks for they might just help.

Check that the water supply valves are turned on
Inspect the filter screens
Test for overheating
Inspect the water pump

Basket spins terribly uneven.

If you find no problems with the suspension rods and springs, you can remove that spin basket and check for an item that could be stuck between the spin basket and the plastic outer tub. Also, check the "balance ring" on the top of the basket. The should be fluid in it. You can check this my shaking the basket and you should hear water.

The washer will not drain. It goes through all

This is almost certainly a simple problem with your empty pump filter being clogged. The empty cycle is timed and if it can't get all the water out in time because the filter is blocked and slowing the empty down, then it will fail safe and won't step on to the final spin cycle with excess water in the drum. You need to locate and clean the filter. Depending on the model (not familiar which with the model you mention) there is probably a round filter cap on the front of the machine at the bottom (It may be behind a small door or hidden behind a clip on panel on the bottom)

Can't get the end caps on the console removed

Behind each end cap (back of washer) you will find a screw hidden beneath a plastic tab. Place a Phillips head screwdriver against the tab and onto the screw. Unscrew it and then pull the control panel forward toward the front of the washer. Lift the head by the end caps and rotate it upward. It will stay attached to the back panel and expose all the parts inside the control area.

Washer will not run pump

Check your lid switch. This is a tell tale symptom of a lid switch gone bad. The washer fills, agitates, but will not spin or drain. The lid switch is located along the right hand side of the lid opening on most models, but some newer models have a switch in the left rear of the lid. Simply open and shut the lid several times and listen for a distinctive "click" of the lid switch as you open and close the lid. A lid switch usually runs about $35 to replace. If you provide me with your washer model number (usually located under the lid somewhere) I can give you the part number you need. That is...if the lid switch is the problem. The only other problem that I have encountered that caused the same symptoms, was a bad timer. Timer vs Lid Switch: Lid switch is a cheaper fix. I would try this option first. Let me know if this helps and/or if you need more guidance.

Not filling up properly

i think the water is syphoning. if drain hose is pushed into a stand pipe, then you have it pushed too far down. otherwise, take the drain hose up in a swan neck at least to the level of the worktop
