Unfortunately neither issue is covered under the 10 year warranty. Only the motor and the wash basket itself is covered under the 10 year warranty. The paint bubbling is just poor manufacturing and you can try to call Whirlpool at 1.***-***-**** and see if they will help with the repair (they own Maytag), but they only have a 1 year warranty so that would be a case by case basis.

The washer not spinning (assuming it's still washing) means your actuator below the tub isn't shifting the washer into spin mode, so the actuator assembly below the washer would need to be replaced to resolve the issue. Below is a link to the part and a video at the bottom of the link to show you how to replace the part yourself if you wanted to replace the part.
