I have an older Admiral W10280489 top loading washer that will run through the wash cycle but do nothing on final spin. The water drains, but the clothes are still extremely wet. The machine will sit idle with the green final spin light illuminated until cycle complete. I have noticed that the lid lock light is not illuminated while sitting at final spin. The washer does wash/agitate properly with the lid locked as it should.

I put the machine into manual troubleshooting mode, and am able to lock the lid, run the agitate low and high cycles, and the spin low and high cycles. I also verified that the tachometer is working through the diagnostic mode.

User manual is here: https://www.pwslaundry.com/files/docs/maytag-whirlpool/Tech-Sheet-W10280489-Rev-D.pdf

I receive the following error codes from the diagnostic mode:
7E1 – BASKET SPEED SENSOR FAULT
F7E5 – SHIFTER FAULT
F7E7 – MOTOR UNABLE TO REACH TARGET RPMS

I am concerned that because I can lock the lid and run the various shifter and motor related cycles this may be a main board issue. I am tempted to replace the lid switch/lock first because it is a cheap part and not locking on final spin, but it does lock and unlock without issue during manual test as well as the wash cycle.

Any advice is greatly appreciated!

Added correct model number

W10280489 isn't a model number.

The model number tag should be under the lid and start with 3 or 4 alphabets first.

Click here: Appliance Parts

Then you will see a link that says: How to find a model number.

Well dang. Learn something new every day :) This is an ATW4675YQ1 Type 587-07 according to the label under the lid.

Thank you for your help.

Thanks!

Ok, then it sounds like the optical sensor in the shift actuator is not reading the tub basket movement properly, usually the fix for that is replacing the shift actuator, I have replaced many shift actuators for this same problem in my local area and it fixed them all.

Here's the shift actuator for your model you can order here:
WPW10006355 Shift Actuator


If you want to verify that its on page 14 in your tech. data sheet you posted above, where it says "Optical Sensor".
