Spin Cycle During the spin cycle, the tub is spinning, but not enough to get ALL the water out. The clothes are still soaking wet. If I re-start the spin cycle, it does help. I am not overloading. Can you help me?

HP, sounds like your washer is not going through the neutral drain. After agitation the tub should drain for about 90 seconds before going into spin. You can verify this by doing a load with the lid up and holding the lid switch down with a small screwdriver. If it fails to go into the neutral drain, it's a gearcase problem and should be covered under warranty for 5 years. If it does go into the neutral drain, then it's another issue such as the pump or drain hose....Catriver..post back

My Lg too load washer sprays water during spin cycle

It is normal for a washer to spin and spray fresh water over the clothes during rinse period. I don’t know why it would leave clothes wet. Look at your options. See if you can turn off rinse n spin to just spin.

My washer is making a clicking sound when it is about to begin the high spin cycle to spin the water out of the clothes and is unable to begin the spin cycle on it's own. I have to manually move the knob...

If this is a belt drive unit it could be the belt or whats called a actuator also call a shifter. This componet switches the gearbox from agitate during wash to Spin to extract the water from the garments.

A load goes through a complete cycle but the clothes are still wet. i can see the drum turning during spin but in my opinion not fast enough. what could be the problem?

The clothes are wet after spinning When the clothes are wet at the end of a cycle, check these: Motor coupler Spin cycle Siphoning Water-inlet valve Motor coupler To test the motor coupler, re-start the washer in its spin cycle. Let the machine run for a minute, and then open the lid and notice whether the tub is spinning: If it's spinning when you lift the lid, the coupler is fine. If it isn't spinning--and your machine was produced by Whirlpool®--you may have a broken coupler. Many Whirlpool-made washers use a small, relatively inexpensive device called a motor coupling. This plastic-and-rubber component is mounted to the shaft of the motor on one side, and to the transmission on the other. Over time, the coupler wears out and fails. When that happens, you need to replace it completely. Spin cycle If the washer doesn't reach its proper spin speed, the clothes may be too wet at the end of a cycle. Check to be sure the load is properly balanced and run a spin cycle again. If the clothes are still wet, you may have a worn or loose belt (Maytag®), a worn clutch (GE®/Hotpoint®), or a worn motor pulley or tub bearing. Replace the applicable component. Alternatively, there could be clothes caught between 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 other things that cause friction on the drive train. Seek the assistance of a qualified appliance repair technician. Siphoning If the water that pumps from the machine goes right back into the machine after the spin cycle, it may be because your washer is siphoning the water from a laundry tub with a slow drain, back into the washer. Try to improve the draining of the laundry tub. (Is there something stuck in the drain?) Also, be sure the drain hose doesn't reach more than about 4 inches into the laundry tub. If it does, cut off the excess. Water-inlet valve Water-inlet valves eventually fail. One problem that may develop with a water-inlet valve is that it can no longer completely shut off when the electricity is turned off to it. Then, the valve may leak and drip water into the clothes tub--you may notice that your washer has water in it when you haven't used it for a few days. To fix this, replace the valve.

Cloths Soaked after Spin Cycle

If the motor has a transmission, it could be stuck in 1st gear. I think the agitator running is normal.

Clothes are soaking wet after the entire wash cycle.

The motor controller is likely bad - not getting to the HIGH spin.
