20 year old Kenmore 110.92593210 has the classic symptoms of a bad clutch:

Slow to spin
Easy to stop by hand (sometimes)
Worse under heavy load
Sometimes needs help to start spinning with heavy load
Clothes come out soaked after slow spin

Bought a new clutch kit. Easy job. Looked at old clutch, and although it was the original, seemed to be very tight still and not fully worn out. Replaced with the new parts since it was open, and nothing has changed. Actually the first 2 loads were good, but they were very small. And yes, I used the proper large-capacity spring.

Any suggestions for what could be causing these clutch-like symptoms?

THANK YOU,
Steve

I had similar issue, after replacing the clutch it turned out to be the agitator.. Plus the pump was bad, as it would not drain the water.... All is good now, works like it is brand new..
