SOURCE: defy automaid won't spin
Put the machine on its side and check the wires to the pump. i found one of the wires broke off the lug on the pump side. Could be from all the vibration from the drum. The machine will only spin if the drainage is working.

It appears your Lid Switch/Door Latch has failed in this instance.
For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...
FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.
PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.
If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.
Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.
If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.
Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question

SOURCE: defy automaid - just stopped
almost certainly a simple problem with your empty pump filter being clogged.
The empty cycle is timed and if it can't get all the water out in time because
the filter is blocked and slowing the empty down, then it will fail safe and
won't step on to the final spin cycle with excess water in the drum. While it's
trying to get the water evacuated, you will probably see the machine doing a
slow tumble for up to 8 minutes and you may also hear the empty pump running
You need to locate and clean the filter. Depending on the model (not familiar which with the model you mention) there is probably a round filter cap on the front of the machine at the bottom (It may be behind a small door or hidden behind a clip on panel on the bottom) Many models of this design also have a small hose to the right of the filter cap that you can pull out, remove a plug from and drain off any water in the filter before you remove the filter and get your floor wet, so take a look for this before you remove the filter and get soaked.
