Question about Siemens Washing Machines
I have a Siemens UltraSense Front Load washer. On several occasions, but not all, after all of the cycles are finished, the washer beeps, but the clothes or sheets are still heavy with water. Even if I use the spin cycle again 2-3 times after, clothes are still dripping wet. When I re-start just the spin cycle, I do notice that the drum is not moving as fast as I think it should. Any advice as to what may be wrong?

When the clothes are wet at the end of a cycle, check these:
Motor coupler Totest the motor coupler, re-start the washer in its spin cycle. Let themachine run for a minute, and then open the lid and notice whether thetub is spinning:
Alternatively, there could be clothes caughtbetween 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 otherthings that cause friction on the drive train. Seek the assistance of aqualified appliance repair technician.
Siphoning Ifthe water that pumps from the machine goes right back into the machineafter the spin cycle, it may be because your washer is siphoning thewater from a laundry tub with a slow drain, back into the washer. Tryto improve the draining of the laundry tub. (Is there something stuckin the drain?) Also, be sure the drain hose doesn't reach more thanabout 4 inches into the laundry tub. If it does, cut off the excess.
Water-inlet valve Water-inletvalves eventually fail. One problem that may develop with a water-inletvalve is that it can no longer completely shut off when the electricityis turned off to it. Then, the valve may leak and drip water into theclothes tub--you may notice that your washer has water in it when youhaven't used it for a few days. To fix this, replace the valve.

Sounds like a whirlpool or inglis type belt drive with a loose belt or bad basketdrive[clutch].
Could be the set screw backed out on the basket, thats a pretty common problem.
I'd need a model number to know who made it though.
