Check the brushes in the motor. This is a normal problem.

My washing machine will not empty of water and this is preventing it from do i empty the water via pump filter as i have no manual and it will not let me download one.please help!

This is could be caused from several issues. First I would try changing cycles on the timer to another spin cycle to see if that let the washer drain. Some times the timer malfunctions and doesn't allow the washer to spin. If this doesn't work and you can hear the motor running then you could have a broken belt or bad clutch or a wig wag (electric solenoids that operate the transmission.). The easiest way to empty the washer if it's located near a floor drain is to remove the drain hose from the drain and lay it on the floor near the drain. The water will run right out of the machine. If you not near a drain then you can use a Wet / Dry Shop Vac, remove the paper filter from inside the Shop Vac and then your ready to vacuum out the water. You will need to empty the vac several times.
Or you can use a garden hose and siphon the water out by place in one end in the washer and the other end outside or near a drain, You will need to **** on the end of the hose that's near the drain or outside. This will almost guarantee you a mouth full of laundry water so be careful if you try this.

Washer stop

My first thought Lid switch gone bad. This washer has a motor which reverses. The motor is a double shaft design. 1 end of that motor drives the transmission and the other end drives the pump. When moving in one direction the tranny agitates them clothes and the water cannot be repelled out of the washer. On spin cycle the motor goes opposite directione and tosses out that water while spinning the drum. Later models have a fancy spin pawl which allows them pump to empty that water and lessen the strain on the motor. If that safety lid switch don't act right then them washer will be dead in da water during dat rinsing cycle. Now here is a wondermous vido i found on dat new fangled world wide web from repair clinic the most wondermous site to buy them parts for this washer.

My clothe come out very wet at the end of the wash cycle

If the pump is clogged and can't release all the water it won't go into final high spin. Remove lower cover and locate coin catch and unscrew it. Water will come out, so be ready. If it's full of stuff, this is probably the problem.

The spin problem is related to the clutch and possibly the transmission. The transmission will leak oil which gets into the clutch causing it to slip. Reach underneath the machine and wipe your hand across the base of the transmission. If there is oil on your hand replace the transmission and clutch..
