First, check the easy stuff:Check for kinked or obstructed hoses.Also,there should be some slack in the belt. That's Maytag's way of eliminating the clutch in their design. Remove the belt and see if you can freely spin the pump pulley. If you can't turn it freely, replace it. If it turns freely, check for an obstruction. If none of these reveals the problem, you may have a worn thrust bearing. A worn bearing will cause the brake to drag, which in turn slows the spin speed. As an afterthought, you may want to make sure the drain hose isn't too far into the stand pipe. This could cause a siphon effect that can deter complete drainage.
