Intermittently won't spin - the drain pump kicks on but it won't spin. Haven't torn into it, but first suspect is lid switch. Any other troubleshooting advice or doc's would be appreciated.

Drain Pump mechanically connected to the Washer Motor ... Lid Switch would be OK.

The Timer should pause the Washer Motor for a few seconds after it Drains.

If not, the Transmission won't come out of Neutral.

Try this, after the Water is drained, open the Lid for a few seconds (to pause the Washer Motor)

Then close the Lid.

Does it now Spin ?

It's intermittently working. Earlier I filled the tub about 1/4 full and manually advanced the timer a click at a time with the lid open and the lid switch depressed. When it landed on "spin" it drained completely without the tub or agitator moving at all, then the agitator started to turn very slightly and very slowly. I reached in and spun the drum by hand a couple times and that got it moving up to speed and it finished the cycle. That was a few hours ago.

Just went in a tried again & it went through all cycles including spin successfully by itself. This behavior is consistent with or without the machine loaded.

So yeah, switch is fine, but that's all I'm sure of at this point. :)

Sounds to me like a clutch problem or stripped out basket drive block.

OK, but on this machine it starts spinning and draining at the same time. Sorry, guess I'm not following you.

What can I do to validate those are working correctly/incorrectly?

Thanks again guys - appreciate the help
