washing machine working?

i've noticed that my washing machine, which is probably 8-10 years old, Kenmore, sometimes leaves clothes wetter then normal after the last spin cycle. Not sopping wet, but a little heavier than i'm used to. is this a sign of a declining washing machine? clothes are clean, and all else works.

Have you checked for lint build up in exhaust path? TB

It could be several things including a drain problem or a belt problem. You might try replacing the belt and checking to make sure it is able to pump the water out quickly.

Yes, that was clear from your original post. A small amount of lint comes off your clothes in the washer as well, and over time, that lint (or pieces of kleenex, etc.) can clog up a washer's drain hose. That would definitely be an easy thing to check, anyway. Andy

Sometimes a load of laundry will lay unbalanced in the washtub and prevent adequate spin speed. Try re-arranging the damp clothes and repeating the spin cycle only.
