Question about GE Energy Star WCVH6260F Front Load Washer
Our front loading GE washer did the exact same thing. It took forever for a cycle to finish and the clothes would be sopping wet. The problem was a clogged up drain filter. There were coins and a couple bills and some odds and ends caught up in there that was preventing the water from draining out. The spin cycle can't get going full speed until some of the water has drained.
I'm not an "appliance expert", but I have checked and cleared the drain filter a few times on my machine. I'm not familiar with your exact washer. Here's how I did mine:
Take off the bottom panel by removing the small screws at the top of the panel. Look for the white, round, plastic piece toward the bottom, facing you. Put a basin underneath it to catch any water, then slowly unscrew the filter. (if your basin fills up too fast just screw the filter back in and dump the basin, then repeat). Once you have it off you'll be able to immediately see any debris in there. Put the filter back in and the panel back on.

The clothes are wet after spinning
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.

We had the exact same problem with our washer, and we just fixed it because of the valuable input here at Fixya. It wouldn't drain or spin. We took off the front panel and removed the drain filter. It was full of handfuls of dog hair, two lollipop sticks, one pen , four paper clips, and $2.99 in change. Thanks everyone for your help!
