Answer to: Why are the clothes still very heavy and wet after the spinWhat has been forgotten out of the list, is the drive block. Our washer still had wet clothes. It seemed to be spinning. I checked the hoses, drains, belt, drain pump and all were fine. The final check was to spin up the basket. When I put slight pressure on it, (do at your own risk and know what you are doing), it stopped spinning. The drive block below the agitator was stripped.
