Whirlpool Ultima Wash II Intermittent Rinse/Spin

My washer, (Just two months after the extended warranty ran out), will intermittently NOT Drain the Water or Spin. If I lean the machine back and drop it, it will usually continue to cycle to end; but not always. It only handles Small Loads now; but sometimes not even a small one. I often have to drain the water from the machine before it will again empty the water and finish a Rinse/Spin Step.
I don't think this is a mechanical problem; but maybe a relay somewhere. Can anyone tell me where and how to look ? Does anyone know if it's a relay that kicks-in the Rinse/Spin Cycles ? Can anyone provide me with a Logic Diagram for this machine; and maybe even a schematic ?
Thank You !

Will not spin on any rinse cycle

Hi, This washer does not have a belt. While the washer is agitating, if you lift the lid will it stop? Some models will agitate but not spin if the lid is up. It sounds to me like the lid switch might be going bad.
If you will get me a model #, I can look this up for you and give you a better idea.

No final extract spin

P-bass, sounds like your problem is in the lid switch actuator that mounts to the bottome side of the top. I have found a bunch of these actuators just missing making the switch. Therefore the intermittent problem. Solution is to just bend it enough to insure making the switch on every closure. back.
