Washing machine, clothes come out very wet, as an incomplete spin cycle. I think the brake is out.
You can tell if the brake is out when you open the machine lid while it is in spin cycle,,, if it does not stop spinning quickly, then the brake is not working. but if it stops fast,, the brake is operating correctly.
I'm more apt to think this is a direct drive machine.
If you stand there and watch and listen,,, it should go from the aggitate cycle into the drain water cycle without any spin,,,this will last about 1 minute. Then it should kick into spin cycle once the tub is empty.
These machines are prone to wear after time that causes it to "shift" incorrectly,,, thus spinning when it should be only draining (kinda skipping the drain cycle of sorts)
You can visually check this by opening the door after the drain cycle starts to see if the tub is actually spinning inside. if it is,,, then the transmission is damaged and repair can become expensive.
I have taken the transmission out of an old machine and swaped to repair (if you have another good transmission that is)
You may want to look at the plastic and rubber coupling between the motor and transmission to insure it is in good shape if you find the transmission is shifting correctly as explained.
