I have a Whirlpool LSR8133HQ0 washer which has served us well.  Lately I've noticed the clothes are coming out of the spin cycle wetter than they used to be.  This is especially true if there are more clothes in the tub.  I read in the Appliance Repair FAQs (How to check the transmission in a Frigidaire top-loading washer) that the tub should only rotate in one direction.  With the washer empty (and off of course), I can spin the main tub in both directions.  Does this indicate a transmission problem?

If I bypass the lid switch, I notice the tub spins clockwise during the spin cycle.  If I let the washer spin with a small load of clothes, when I quickly lift the lid I notice the tub spinning quickly.  With a larger load of clothes, I notice the tub doesn't reach the same tub speed.  I would think this indicates the clutch is slipping.

Any thoughts?

Thanks!

This is the post you need for your washer:

Read through that, check your machine and let us know what you see.

OK - thanks for the post.  My tub DOES spin, it's just that with a larger load, the clothes seem to be a lot wetter than a smaller load (and wetter than large loads used to be).  The tub spins faster with a smaller load.

Can I assume the clutch is slipping and needs to be replaced?

Re-read the linked post and then explain to me why you would even consider assuming that which you were instructed to observe.
