If the unit is not spinning long enough then you have a bad timer on the unit, otherwise the clutch is bad, which is more likely to be the problem with the unit...

We cannot hold the tub and keep it from spinning; not even close.
Today we got a stopwatch and timed the "spin" cycle . . . On four different tries, it would spin LESS THAN 2 miniutes, and from the end of the spin cycle, until the buzzer would go off (which indiciates the end of the cycle), it was 4 minutes.
So, it spins for 2 minutes and rests for 4 minutes. Seems to indicate the spin cycle is stopping short.
Replacing the timer is easy, here is a video on how to get to the control panel, the knob for the timer should screw off and there should be 1 or 2 screws holding it in.
First, this video is for a Whirlpool/Kenmore washer. It is different from the video we watched earlier for a KitchenAid washer.
Second, this video does not mention the timer, nor show where the timer is located or how to replace the timer.
