help with specs and spin info on older washing machine

i have an older washing machine (maybe 10 years old) in my basement which i installed.
due to the location of the main drain, i had to tap into it high up, right against the floor practically.

it pumps the water out, but for some reason the clothes feel really wet and heavy at the end of the cycle. do you think it's just not pumping it all out because of the height, or do i have another issue going on?

Height matters. That's most likely your problem.

You can test your hypothesis by moving the hose to a lower (standard height) position and directing the water into a bucket in the final minutes of the spin cycle.
