Question about Washing Machines
Check the lid closure switch. This keeps the unit from spinning if the top lid is open, as a safety interlock. The switch gets a lot of abuse, as the lid sometimes slams down and damages the switch. If the switch is damaged, the washer will stop before the final rinse, or spin, depending upon the model. This can be repaired, but takes a bit of work. I did mine myself, with great results. If you are not inclined in that direction, have it repaired. It costs far less than a new washer.

Following up my comment from yesterday, I took the machine apart and discovered that the black rubber cover on the valve that releases the cold water had perished and cracked, and wasn't opening properly.
I tested the hot and cold solenoids and everything checked out ok. Was just the cold valve sticking.
The wash cycle was working because I was using hot/warm water. As the rinse cycle needs cold water to get started, it was not working and the rinse and spin cycles wouldn't complete.
I have swapped the valves over for now (put the working hot one on the cold side and am using cold water only). It's working while I order a replacement...

Sounds like a belt problem!

sounds as if you have a faulty lid switch, for safety reasons if the machine doesnt think the lid is closed it willnot spin/drain the waer out.
