Re: rinse cycle spinning... clothes still soaked
It sounds like your washer is not going through it's neutral drain. After agitation, your washer should pause and drain for around 90 seconds to pump out the water before spin. Check this out by starting a wash with a small screw driver holding the lid switch down. This will allow you to observe whether or not it's going through it's neutral drain. If not, it's a transmission problem. The trans is covered under warranty for 5 years. You may also want to check the pump to see if it's gunked up. Catriver..post back.

My washer makes a wierd clinky sound during wash and rinse cycle and it has began to stop spinning the water will drain but clothes will be soaked. Also sometimes during spin cycle it will agitate instead of spinning
I had that problem at one time with my old washer and what it ended up
being was the Washer Dog Agitators were broken and causing the it to
slip and not spin correctly. I would try checking the Dog Agitators.

I hope this helps. If that is the problem I bought mine at Sears for about $8, normally in stock item.
Let me know if there is anything else I can do.
Turn timer to rinse cycle. let fill up and agitate. when it stops
agitating it should pause then start to pump water out. After about 2
minutes it should pause for 3-5 seconds then start again and spin. If
it starts the first time and never stops it will just continue to pump
but no spin. The 3-5 second pause allows the transmission to shift to
spin. If it does not do this the problem is your timer. You may need to
do this a few times to verify the problem.
If that is not the problem it is likely that you need a new clutch. You will need a technician to install a new clutch for you
How long is the gentle cycle?. I prefer to make my own delicate cycle. I let the machine fill, agitate about 1 min. then turn off and let soak about 15 - 20 min. Make the machine pump out and start spin very briefly. stop machine. let fill up again and repeat to rinse. Don't let agitate for more than 3 or 4 min total wash and rinse don't let spin completely.
