We have an LG front load washer and we noticed that our clothes are coming out wetter than normal and their is excess soap in the machine and on the clothes. Does anyone have any idea what we may be doing wrong, or is the washer having technical issues. We are running it on the "normal cycle" with cold water, and using one capful of high efficiency laundry detergent as it says on the bottle. Thanks for any input.

Keeping in mind that the soap & bleach gets dispensed into your wash on the
second to last rinse cycle and that most all rinse cycles are in cold
water. Is your cold water valve screen plugged causing your washer to
rinse poorly? Are you using the HE detergent? If not maybe the
washer is sudsing up to much and having a hard time rinsing all the
suds and bleach out and leaving the clothes soapy.
Fill the washer up with no clothes in it on a cold/cold wash setting
does it take a long time to fill the washer up? Also when it is full
and agitating is there suds in the washer?
Last suggestion is if the drain is hose is a lot higher than the top of
the washer it might have a hard time draining out all of the soap
water before the next load
Possible that the SPIN Speed is too low, check the drive, the RPM of the motor. Check for friction of the spindle , check for free movement of the drum. If you notice a change then you will need to reset the mechanism. If the motor speed is low check the capacitor.
I had a similar problem with my Kenmore front loader. Turned out that the rubber lining around the door was trapping dirty, soapy water causing a nasty residue to collect. That residue got onto the clothes. I cleaned the rubber liner and now keep the washer door open between uses. I still occasionally wipe down the rubber liner with a wet rag. Problem seems to have been solved.
??? not enough information, what do you mean by this? the clothes are still wet when they come out the machine does not spin at all? the machines have a set time to drain before they spin usually three minutes if the water has not dropped below a level before the set time the machine will stop, check the drain Clothes begin to get wetter than before? how old is the machine motor brushes usually last 2-3 years depending on usage when they wear down the parts of the program that put the most power through the brushes can fail first (Spin)
