Sometimes, and becoming more frequent, the tub will not spin when it goes into the spin cycle (it will time through the cycle even without spinning). The motor is running and sounds normal, except no spinning. When I catch it, or reset it to the beginning of the spin cycle, I open the lid, rotate the tub a little, and nearly close the lid, enough to start the spin circuit. If it starts spinning, it will continue. If it doesn't, I rotate the tub some more and try again, usually having success the first or second try.
Any guess on the culprit?

Just guessing but if you can select another programme that works such as rinse and spin or spin only the fault is likely to be with the controller but if the spin doesn't work on any programme I think the motor speed control is likely to be the culprit, though unfortunately these often share the same board.
One thought though, if the system thinks the tub still has water spinning cannot proceed. I am not sure what method modern machines use to tell the brain the state of water level in the tub but they used to use an air pressure sensor/switch connected to the tub by a length of small diameter hose that used to sometimes become blocked.
If it doesn't fill it won't start any other cycle unless you move it ahead yourself. If it hums I am thinking it is trying to fill. Sounds like the valve is turning on to let water in but it is not getting through. My washer has a screen where the hoses go on and sometimes the screen becomes plugging with scale. If that is ok then the solenoid must be coming on but the valve is stuck. Does neither hot or cold settings work? Please rate my answer so I am rewarded points for it.
This is almost certainly the filter to the empty pump blocked. When you power up the machine, the first thing it does is make sure there is no water left over in the tub, if it can't evacuate any water it finds there, it won't go any further. Same on a spin, if after a set time the water hasn't emptied the empty cycle will stop but the spine cycle wont start because there is still water in the drum.
been a servicer for 18 years and had one yesterday that had me in a daze for a bit ,but finally figured it out... it was doing the same thing and if you pulled on the timer knob sometimes it would restart and sometimes you had to move it to the next cycle to get it working...it seemed to always happen on the spin cycle or rinse when the unit was suppose to start the tub operation... i finally determined it had bad contacts in the timer and had to replace it for the customer.... hope this helps you out... wish you luck
You situation could be caused by various problems. The easiest would be to check that no hoses on the drain side are kinked or plugged. This includes the tub to pump hose or the pump itself. Sometimes socks and other items can get stuck in the tub hose. Sometimes objects left in pockets can seize or hinder the pump ejection. Its sounds like if the unit is spinning and water is not ejected the above solutions should be checked first.
