Our six year old Maytag Atlantis fills with water and washes

Resolved Question:

Our six year old Maytag Atlantis fills with water and washes but will not start spinning to extract the water. Then the timer/control just rotates around to the end of the cycle without spinning and the tub still full of water. We can still manually turn the control to the middle of the spin cycle and it will then spin and extract the water. Any thoughts?
