<<< The other times it drains out mostly but not all and wants to spin but wont, just contines to tumble. >>>
If water does not fully drain due to an intermittently failing Drain Motor...
The WATER LEVEL PRESSURE SENSOR detects water is still in the tub
The Main Board will wait for---essentially a "green light" signal---from the Water Level Sensor
High Speed Spin will be *stalled* until at least most of the water has been drained
One simple way to verify if the Drain Motor is at fault (and not a blockage).
If the washer is NOT on a pedestal---take a small cup---and drain water from the tub using the small black tube at the Pump Clean-Out Strainer located at the lower/left side of the washer
Once all water has stopped draining from the black tube---place an old towel on the floor and remove the pump strainer
Use caution---if there's a blockage in the strainer---several gallons of water may gush out. Be prepared to immediately re-install the strainer.
Once all of the water has been drained---turn on the washer and press the SPIN SPEED button (select high speed spin)
Press the START button and wait until the display reads/shows 9 minutes remaining.
Does it spin?
If there was severe blockage in the Pump Strainer---no need to take further action.
If the Pump Strainer was clear/clean---replace the Drain Motor.
