Washing Machine Problem

I have a 3 year old Admiral clothes washer. Yes, I know they have a rep for being junk. Starting last week it does the following: It washes normally. It rinses normally. It gets to the spin cycle and spins very slowly. It goes through the cycle and ends normally. When it is done, there is still water in the machine and the softener in the dispenser. I manually turn it back to "spin" and it spins fast as it should, and it shuts down and everything is fine. Any ideas what's going on here? Thanks.
