OK with no water or clothes in the washer will it spin empty?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
It spins fine just doesn't drain all the water out

OK if you remove the filter from the pump chamber and then put it on spin can you see the pump impeller going around very fast inside the pump housing? Look in the filter hole its visiible at the back.
