Hi and Welcome to Just Answer,

 

Ok, let's take a look at this;

 

This could be a few things,

 

  • 1) Make sure that the balance is not one sided, If the tub becomes unbalanced, it may spin wildly or not at all.
  • 2) Make sure that the Lid Switch is making full contact, If the switch is slightly damaged, this will cause the switch to make a bad connect and not spin
  • 3) Finally, the belt may be loose, worn, or broken, you may need to have this replaced, or repaired.

 

So you may be looking at a new switch or belt, if the balance is fine.
