Clear out the drain filter behind the bottom front panel. Panel can be removed with a 7mm socket driver for three screws on the bottom. Pull out on the panel after all three screws are removed. Twist round filter out counter clockwise, but be prepared to catch water in the drain after opening the filter container. Clean the white plastic filter and put everything back together. If this doesn't fix it, check the pump just to the right of the filter to be sure it is in working order and also check the inbound drain and the exit tube beyond the pump.

Update

Update to previous response, the error code is a little tricky to read it displays the "F " first and then alternatively flashes the second part of the code like "06" which you may mistaken for how many minutes are left. A common code for your issue might be F06 when combining the two parts of the code. A washer stopping just before the high spin cycle could indicate a MCU board issue, bad connection to the board in the top of the machine, bad connectors or even a motor issue. Having the correct code will help narrow down your particular issue.
