The spin cycle in washing machine and Newton’s laws

Consider a washing machine. After the “wash” and “rinse” cycles, there is a “spin” cycle. Why? Why don’t we just let the water drain out from the bottom? Discuss these answers in terms of force and Newton’s laws of motion. Also, discuss the position of the clothes in the machine at the end of the spin cycle.

The spin cycle removes water from the cloths by centrifugal action
