The load of clothes in the washer was wet and heavy when I opened the door to take the clothing out and put it in the dryer. I had heard the machine running, but apparently it was not spinning out the excess water; I tested this by holding the little button down while the top loader door was open. Any ideas on what type of problem this is besides inconvenient? Is this possibly something simple, like a belt? I know that even simple things cost more than they should to fix when you're not handy enough to do a self-repair.
