This isn't a fix for the machine, but what I do (I have the same problem) is put the dial on spin again for about 20 seconds. It works for me!
Sounds like it is permanently set for Permanent Press or Gentle, and does not go into high speed. You are trading in nearly-dry for wrinkle-free . You can't have both with most washers.
Unless you just forgot about that setting, you probably have to replace the control.
Nina, I don't know if this will help you or not but when our Whirlpool washer started doing this it was the Clutch that was wearing out. I took the make and model number of the washer and Googled the problem, you may find that there are several answers or options for your problem. We ended up taking ours to a local repair shop for a new (used) clutch replacement, much cheaper then buying a new washer. They said the newer models have cheaper parts that wear out faster than the old machines. Imagine that! Good Luck. :)
Check your top & bottom hoses on back of machine where the water come's in. I had the same problem, so my son took the hoses off & found they have a screen in them( at least mine did). Problem solved. I hope this works for you.
Here are questions related to Washer Does Not Spin All of the Water Out of the Clothes.
I have an Amana top loading heavy duty washing machine, probably 5-8 years old. It does not seem to spin clothes as dry as usual. Is there anything I can check or do before calling a repair person?

I'd check the condition of the belt. Perhaps it's stretched a bit or worn. This would mean it's not as tight as when new.
I have a Whirlpool Ultimate Care II washing machine. Sometimes it will not spin out well. Also, sometimes I have to give the tub a push to get it to start spinning.

My 8 year old washer spins during the spin cycle, but the water does not come out!

I have a Maytag front loading washing machine. It washes and drains fine, but all of the water doesn't spin out of the clothes. Before when this happened, I just ran the load through the entire cycle again and all was fine, but this time that didn't seem to work. I don't know what to do. I am not mechanically inclined, but can't afford repair.
