Ok not sure what could be wrong. I did check the lid switch and it clicks each and every time I open the lid.

On an empty washer, whether full cycle or rinse to end only, spin cycle works great and drains the tub. But when loaded to the top with clothes, the spin cycle does not work. If I open the lid and turn the inner tub and then set it to spin again, it works and drains the water out of the clothes.

I pulled off the frame and checked between the inner and outer tubs. I do not see anything stuck in between (last time a sock was stuck in there that made the tub not spin right). Hoses are clear.

Hi,

I'd first check your motor coupler and see if its worn out(rubber shavings on your floor) or if any of the plastic fingers on it have broken.

Here's the motor coupling for your model:
285753A Motor Coupling


If your motor couple looks fine, then you'd likely need a new clutch. Whenever I replace the clutch I always replace the basket drive assembly as well, as they both work together.

Here's the clutch for your model:
285785 Clutch Assembly


Here is the basket drive assembly for your model:
W10820043 Basktdrive


Videos to replace each part are included on each part page.

Let us know how it goes.:)

Hi, sorry for the late reply. I wound up replacing the motor coupling, clutch assembly and the drain pump. In trying to figure out which part it would be, those 3 are the cheapest and all in the same area. Didn't want to take it apart again and again replacing things one at a time. Saw that the Basketdrive was very expensive, so wanted to avoid that.

Its working great now, drains all the way. I looked at the coupling, clutch and drain pump. I didn't see anything that was chewed up or damaged. Nothing clogged the drain pump, so not sure which part it was. Though with the age of this machine, it would only be a matter of time before one of the above mentioned parts would go, so did it all in one shot.

Thanks for your help.
