Does the motor run during spin?  Does the pump rotate?  If yes, then you've either got something stuck in the drain hose or you have a stripped out pump.

Yes the motor runs during spin cyclye and pump spins because the water drained and i could here it running down the drain.Of course not every load is soaking wet at the end.This has been an intermittent problem.If the pump was stripping out would larger loads effect operation.What i mean is would it slip sometimes and not others

Pull the drain hose off from the pump and blow through it from that end-- should be free and clear.  Then pull the suction hose off the pump and see if water flows out from it freely.  Lastly, check the pump itself for obstructions.  The problem is in one of these places.
