Model: WVSR1060DWW

After  completing the spin cycle, the clothes in our washer are still sopping wet. This is a sporadic problem. For a couple loads, it will be fine. Next couple I will have to spin them once or twice to get  most of the water out.

Washer seems to have no problem emptying itself between cycles, so I'm somewhat stumped as to what the problem may be.

Thanks in advance for any assistance!

After checking to make sure the belt is not worn or slipping I would be wondering if the tranny is going bad?  Known problems with these transmissions. Tranny has a 5 year warranty.;)

Hey,

I would also check your lid switch to see if you don't have a bad connection.

Well, I finally sat there and watched the washer run. Lid switch is ok. It drains the water, then spins the drum with a clunk-clunk-clunk that increases in speed with the drum, then goes away as it hits its highest rpms. Thinking something in the tranny? Any idea of the cost of that? We are not the original owner, it was in the house when we bought it in August 2004, so warranty is no good.

Barring a trans, what is a good, heavy use washer. We do 8 loads a week at least, mostly towels and jeans. An Energy Star unit would be nice, my electric company is offering a $50 rebate on E-S rated washers...

...told the fiancee' not to load the thing to death, "super capacity" or not.....

Call a GE auth servicer in your area with the model and serial numbers to see if it is under warranty or not.  If it is see what the labor would be, if not run, do not walk, replace the washer and do not buy another GE anything....;)
