I here this complaint often and I find transmission slippage to be often the problem. It needs to get into the "high speed" spin. Tilt the machine against the wall, while holding the inner basket stationary with one hand, rotate the pulley counter clockwise and see if you have slippage. If you do, repeat the same procedure again without holding the basket and look to see if the brake is disengaging. If the brake is not disengaging then replace the thrust bearing assembly. If it is disengaging, then your likely cause is the tranny. Hope this helps,

Clothes too damp after spin cycle

Front loading washers are notorious for not spinning the water out of a small load of clothes. This is because there is not enough clothes in the washer to balance the tub during the spin cycle.

Try washing a slightly larger load with a minimum of six items or more. This is one of the downsides to front load models and no specific brand is immune to the problem.

In the permanent press cycle only the spin cycle isn't spinning enough. Clothes are extremely wet must run another spin to get out the water.

Thts right....the permanent press cycle my only spin at 600rpm because the clothes would be creased otherwise. Hence the PP cycle.
Some machines lock the PP cycle to low spin RPM. Some allow you to over ride this setting. Check your machine and have a play with the controls. Some PP clothing should even be drip dry to retain the premanent press in the garment. If you want PP then low spin is needed. fast spin will not be a PP cycle...

Damp and piled up clothes at the end of each cycle

Good Day.... I feel for you... Unknowingly,When they purchase it. Many people have the same experience in finding service for products such as your experiencing.
Of course, it's our hope and belief, it's not ever going to have a problem, some people are lucky. Me neither... mine is in computers... but that's another story.. Just believe me, I understand ... but I'm going to try to help... why I picked up this call, is because I find it to be interesting, about the comment about the clothes gathering into a ball... Generally, that happens in relationship to the amount of water, inside or lack of it. If the clothes are in a ball, that's why they're coming out wet. Nobody makes a washer that can do that.
I want you to check the drain line...(that's the hose to water uses to exit) Is the hose at any point, higher than the top of the machine (it's supposed to be) ... if not siphoning may be occurring.
Also check to drain hose at the inlet, where the hose goes into the wall.. it must allow air to get in here as well. I have experienced some indifferent situations before, if the hose in stuffed into the stand-pipe, or taped,glued, sealed.. if there is no vacuum break (meaning-place in which air can enter) that to can create a siphon. Ge was known for having a washer that made the kind of bang you describe. It was their normal method for stopping the clothes basket from spinning forever. I hope this answer works for you, otherwise resolving may continue to be difficult. One piece of information you'll have received, is what you will and won't recommend to buy when you hear others having conversation on buying a major Appliance. Sometimes it's all we can do... I wish you best... dean
