    I do not have any of these is my mat but have one in a rental property.
    It goes through all the cycles but never enters high speed extract.
    It seems to start ramping up the rpm then goes back to slow rpm.

    I tore into it a little bit. It appears to be pumping out ok, it drains the tub out and you can hear when the pump runs out of water but when the cycle finishes I can spin the tub by hand and the tub feels water logged and hear a lot of water sloshing around.

    I removed the rubber boot that connects the tub to the pump to check for a clog and no water comes out of the tub but still when you spin the tub by hand you can hear water.

    When I took the boot off the bottom of the tub I found some weird inner rubber piece almost like another hose or something.
    Anyone know what that piece does? Maybe the problem holding water in the tub.
    Figured I better look for some help before proceeding. Looking or the service manual now.

    Well, I put in a new lower motor control board and it still will not go into high spin.
    Any other ideas?

    Try changing the main computer board located behind the main panel at the top of the machine. It could be faulty and not sending a signal to the motor control board at the bottom.

    I sent the main computer board out to Mountain Electronics.
    Reinstalled it yesterday and no change.
    It still will not spin.

    If this machine will not go into high spin it is usually 1 of 3 things (if control boards are good).

    1.  Door is not locking properly.
    2.  Out of balance switch or inertia switch is stuck.
    3.  Pressure switch thinks there is water in the tub.

    With an empty load.....
    With the service door open does it say 60x or d?
    Push and hold the bottom right button until the display flashes
    Push the top center button
    Close service door then reopen
    Push the bottom middle button 5 times until the display says 2.xx
    Push the bottom left button once.
    Push the bottom middle button 5 times.

    This screen will tell if it is out of balance and if the door is locked and along with the RPMs.  Watch it go through the 6 minute cycle and with an empty tub the pressure switch won't be an issue.  If the unbalanced light comes on check the three switches around the tub.  If the door lock light never comes on then replace it.

    If you need a service manual send me an email.

    The door is locking and shows on the screen.
    I have checked all the switches and they seem operative.

    I am leaning towards #3 the pressure switch or something related.
    The thing I don't understand is after it drains and ends the cycle you can spin the tub and is sounds like it is water logged.
    Not enough water to come through the perforations and no more water will drain out if you pull the drain hose off the tub but you can clearly hear water sloshing around.

    Might have to take you up on the offer (and thanks) for a service manual as I seem to have misplace mine the last time I worked on it.​

    That is not water you hear, it is an antifreeze solution in a ring around the inner tub.  It helps keep it balanced during the spin cycle.

    When you start a cycle does the tub just constantly turn in one direction, or does it move back and forth like a normal wash?

    If the door says locked and the unbalanced light is not on then it is one of your control boards.  If the the pressure switch was stuck you would have a d8 error when you opened the service door.

    Since you already had your boards out once, turn off the power and reconnect the connections on the motor control board and make sure they are fully seated.

    Washes like normal back and forth.
    I put a brand new exact replacement lower motor control board in it.
    The upper control board I sent out to Mountain Electronics.

    No d8 error, it comes up 608 every time.

    The only difference I have noted was before the factory new motor control board was installed it use to try to ramp up to high spin speed and then stop (doing this several times). Now it does not even make a attempt to try to go into the spin mode. It just goes through the cycles without spinning.

    I will check. Probably will not be there for a couple days.
    Even if it was set for 00 there would still be some kind of spin? Correct?

    You would think, but the manual says if max extraction is set to off it will just do a fluff instead of a spin.
