Clothes Still Wet After Washer Spin Cycle is Complete

If the clothes seem too wet after the wash cycle is complete, the following are possible causes:

  • A "slow spin" may have been selected. A slow spin will eliminate less water than a fast spin.
  • Cold water can make clothes feel more wet. If this is not the case, service may be required.
  • Oversudsing from too much detergent may slow down the final spin cycle, causing a suds lock.
    • Lower than normal spin speed/wet clothes: this occurs as a result of oversudsing. The use of HE detergent will decrease the chance of suds lock; use HE detergent only and be sure to use the recommended measured amount.  Run a drain/spin cycle to remove the excess water in the clothes.
