I took it apart last night, didn't find nothing too alarming, I found a tiny amount of yellow grease on the cabinet, but it sure doesn't look like it came from the gearcase, the clutch was relatively clean but slightly glazed, I didn't have a replacement so I roughed up the pads with sandpaper and cleaned with brake cleaner before reassembling. It didn't really change much still doing the same thing, I ran a load of 8 bath towels through it and they came out fairly damp, took 3 cycles on the dryer to try to dry them out and they were still not totally dry. I forgot to mention in my original post that I had removed the pump and cleaned the hoses & pump as best I could but found no obstructions. The first load that it starting doing this on may have been a heavy one (maybe a little too heavy now that I think about it) The water does pump all the way out of the tub, so I don't think that's holding it up, my situation kinda looks similar to mike's post above mine except I didn't really see any shavings. Any ideas?
