this is a problem with the tranmission itself unfortunately, it's not engaging the spin cycle correctly. Check the manual to see if you happen to have a warranty on your transmission still because sometimes Maytag put a 10 year warranty on some of these units. If not, then unfortunately it's probalby time to replace the unit because a replacement transmission will cost about $400.
