Maytag Bravos XL MVWB835DW1

Have a Maytag Bravos XL MCT washer, about 3 years old. It does not spin as it goes through the wash cycle (no matter the cycle selected). The lights indicate "rinse" and water flows fine into the tub but when it gets to "spin" it just sits there. After a period of time the washer aborts the cycle and it says "dRN" (drain) on the display and partially empties the tub, leaves about 2 to 2 1/2 gallons of water in the tub, drains again for the next 4 times the washer is turned on and off). After unplugging the machine for a couple of minutesand plugging it back in it will go all the way through the cycle as normal for 1 or 2 washes, then back to the same issues. 

I suspect the lidlock sensor mechanism, but not real sure. Need to check the switch out make sure it has continuity, first problem is to figure out how to get the top off the thing. 

BTW - Greetings from Louisiana, Mardi Gras starts today - Lesser le bon temp rouler!

If I understand correctly, It sounds like the washer is hanging up at the spin cycle? The control may be interrupting the cycle because it senses it is taking too long to drain water from the tub. The ‘spin’ light on the display may be an error code designed to alert the consumer to the ‘long drain’ error. Check your use and care guide for this. IF this is the case, you’ll need to check for obstructions in the pump or associated hoses, and/or check resistance of the pump motor windings to see if they are out of spec.

I don’t expect to hear back from you until after you recover from Marci Gras! Be safe out there!
