Okay, I'm really not an expert, but could be your belt needs tightening? Or perhaps your pump is getting old. If running it through a second spin cycle isn't practicable, maybe you could hang lighter items to drip dry in the bath tub. Also, if necessary, wring items out by hand before putting them into the dryer.
These are only temporary fixes, of course. Looks like you're going to need an appliance repair person, unless you or spouse are handy.
Sometimes there is a clog in the drainage hose.When my children were babies I got a tiny sock hung in the drainage hose I t is very easy to remedy; just turn off the water and disconnect both ends of the hose and check. If that is not the problem you may need a new pump.
Another simple solution could be that there is a lint buildup in the discharge lines [thus limiting the amount of water being drained]. The washing machine is equipped with timers; not sensors. Pull the drain hose out from the drain line and verify if the line is clean. If so, make sure there isn't a lint buildup in the washer itself; just a theory!
Too large of a wash load can cause the washer to slow down in the spin cycle or an unbalanced load.
When the load is done and the clothes are too wet, try turning the dial to another spin cycle and try to spin out more moisture. You probably have to have your washer serviced.
My clothes come out wetter than before in the wash. It seems like the spin cycle doesn't work, or it's just not draining the water out right anymore. Any advice?
