Re: washer won't spin
You may not have received any response because you have used Kenmore 22622 category instead of posting with GE and the GE model #.
Regardless - you might remove the back panel of the machine and with adequate light peer inside and look for a belt.
If your machine is belt driven, it may need a replacement if it has stretched beyond the limits imposed by any tensioner.

Check door switch: If
the lid switch is bad it will not drain or spin. Try this test: With lid open
let it finish wash cycle. Press lid switch down with screwdriver. Washer should begin draining.
Release switch. Motor should stop. Press
switch a second time. Washer should
start spinning as it continues to drain. If motor doesn't come on while lid
switch is pressed, replace the switch.

Check the washer lid safety switch . Sounds like it is a simple switch for when you close the lid it allows to spin only when lid is closed. It is a safety switch for spinning to not operated if lid is open durring spinning cycle. It's maybe a 20 dollar part and easy install.
Your hand probably won't depress the lid switch far enough to actuate it. Use a pencil, pen or old toothbrush handle to press the switch down and see if spin starts. If it starts, the lid actuator is likely broken or out of alignment.
