Kenmore top loading washing machine

About every 5th load of laundry the spin cycle, prior to finishing, will not go into spin. The machine rinses and then just sits there as if it is waiting on a signal to begin spinning. Once the time period for the spin cycle completes the washer then stops. What should I look for as a cause and possible solution

    I have the same problem. My machine is about 4 yrs old and it dose everything but go into the spin cycle. I don't believe it is a stuck contact on the timer. If anyone can email me with a fix on this problem please do. I called a repair person and they want 75.00 Bucks just to walk in the door. If I could find a good brake down on this machine I could probably make the repairs myself.

The spin cycle wont start as the rinse cycle finishes i here two clicks 1 to 2secconds appart and then nothing

Not sure which model you have, but if it spins after the wash cycle, and not after the rinse cycle, it is more than likely the timer.

As soon as the final spin cycle concludes..there is a loud clunk

make sure your laundry is evenly spread around tub when loading; most portables don't have self leveling features

Kenmore 80 Series - machine won't rinse or spin

Manually move the timer to the SPIN mode and turn it on.
If nothing happens, replace the lid switch.
With a model number I could be more specific.
