Hello... need help with my Maytag LSE7804ACE washer which isn't draining all of the way. It stops with about one inch of water left and won't go into the final spin cycle.
I can't find the timer chart for your machine but I did find the wiring diagram. I've ran into this exact same problem before, if I remember correctly, it's a bad timer.
Looking at the wiring diagram without the timer chart it appears that it will be contact # 8, which should be the water level switch bypass circuit. What is occurring is that the the neutral is feeding thru the water level pressure switch and as soon as the water level gets low enough where the pressure switch trips to the position to call for water the neutral line is opened so spinning stops.
The way you can prove this is to fill the machine up all the way with the water level control set to the highest level and when it starts agitating push the timer knob in to turn off machine, turn it to the spin cycle and turn it back on. When it stops spinning measure the water level that is left in the machine.
Now set the water level control to the lowest setting and do the same as above again. When you measure the water level when spinning stops this time it will be lower then last time.
If you repeat the test at any water level setting it will always stop with the same level of water remaining as that level stopped at before.
Here's the wiring diagram:
