wet clothes after spin cycle

I've got and old Kenmore 90 series washing machine that's probably ready to be put down. But I'm at least considering a minor attempt to save her. For the last couple of days the clothes have still been sopping wet after the spin cycle and the machine felt much heavier than usual. Water pours from the back when I pull the hose off. I think I remember fixing this thing several years ago with a similar problem that ended up being a stripped drive block. but I don't remember there being that much water still in the machine. Any thoughts?

How does it sound during the spin cycle? Does it happen every time, or occasionally? One possibility is that your load is going out of balance.

this could be so many things, some very simple some very expensive to repair. First does it spin at all? Also a model# would be helpful to pinpoint problem

I think you need check the drain hose. If it is clogged or kinked water will not drain properly during the spin cycle.

I dont know what model you have but really consider a front load machine for your next one they really spin up at high RPM and it costs way less to dry your clothes. They also use way less water. The down side is you need a really firm floor on which to mount them. My first was a whirlpool, and it was a good machine. I now have a direct drive LG, and I would stay away from them, unless you have a concrete floor. Take a chair with you so you can sit down before you hear the price.
