**When it does not spin, does it sit quietly until you come move the dial?
yes, when it does not spin it sits quietly until I move the dial. Usually what happens is you set it on a wash cycle and it will wash but not drain or spin - just sits there until the dial moves to the end of the cycle. So to get it to work, you put it on wash cycle until it stops the wash, then move it to another cycle to get it to empty, then move it to another cycle to get it to spin.
**If you select a spin cycle and start it and lift the lid and gently set it back down, does it spin?
Most of the time - I'd have to try it. The switch that it activated by lowing the lid seems to work ok....
Yes, the timer goes to the end of the cycle.
It will wash, then not do anything but dial keeps moving to end of cycle. The put it on another cycle and it will drain and then sit there and do nothing til the end of that cycle, then put it on delicate and it will spin.
(spin cycle is short so you have to spin 2 - 3 times to get clothes dry enough to put in dryer) Yes, when it's spinning it will stop when you open the lid and start again when you lower the lid.

Thanks - that's kind of what I suspected. Do you have any idea about how much that would cost ? (to see if it's worth fixing - otherwise everything works very well).... and, I am somewhat mechanically and electrically inclined so is this usually something the owner could do ? I hate to call in and pay a tech if I can avoid it. Thanks a lot !
