When the clothes are wet at the end of a cycle, check these:
Motor coupler To test the motor coupler, re-start the washer in its spin cycle. Let the machine run for a minute, and then open the lid and notice whether the tub is spinning:
Alternatively, there could be clothes caught between the inner and outer tubs. Read the "It spins but won't pump" section of the "It won't drain" section. Also, there could be other things that cause friction on the drive train. Seek the assistance of a qualified appliance repair technician.
Siphoning If the water that pumps from the machine goes right back into the machine after the spin cycle, it may be because your washer is siphoning the water from a laundry tub with a slow drain, back into the washer. Try to improve the draining of the laundry tub. (Is there something stuck in the drain?) Also, be sure the drain hose doesn't reach more than about 4 inches into the laundry tub. If it does, cut off the excess.
Water-inlet valve Water-inlet valves eventually fail. One problem that may develop with a water-inlet valve is that it can no longer completely shut off when the electricity is turned off to it. Then, the valve may leak and drip water into the clothes tub--you may notice that your washer has water in it when you haven't used it for a few days. To fix this, replace the valve.

Hello, sounds like you have a problem with your clutch assembly, tilt the machine back and access it from underneath..if you see oil at the base next to the motor this means your transmission is going bad and the oil has got into the clutch assembly..If this is the case you may as well go buy a new washer now since it is really expensive to replace the clutch and transmission. If however you don't see any evidence of oil underneath your going to need to replace the clutch assembly. If you have mechanical experiance by all means try yourself...if no experiance get a tech in to do it :) thanks for using fixya! Mike
