For some reason it spins fine when there are not any clothes in it, but will not spin out with clothes. I've tried moving the clothing around while the lid button is depressed with a screw driver, it will start spinning as soon as i take all the clothes out. Any help??

I have had this problem with two of my previous washers a top loader and front loader.Each time it was a faulty pump that drains the water from the tub after the wash cycle is complete. If the water does not drain from the tub the machine will not go to the spin cycle. Both of my washers were 5 or 6 years old when this occurred. If the washer is only 5 months old it should be under the manufactures warranty. Good Luck.
Just random input, I apologize if this is of no help to you.
I've only experienced this with my washer when clothes somehow get bunched up on one side of it. The best I can tell you at the moment is to make sure there is relatively equal distribution of clothes around the "washer bucket thingy" if you hear the bang bang bang again.
top loader ??? or front loader??? if top loader you have broken your lid switch, will fill, agitate, but when it comes to drain/spin for safety reasons if the unit doent recognize the lid closed it will not advance...if yo have a front loader then i would suspect that something has gotten into the pump assy and preventing drainiing of water therefore will not spin
It sound like a lid switch issue.
If the lid switch is defective, your washer can't spin and may not function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washer to get to the switch.
Look that the switch is not broken or loose.
If all is fine, you should replace the switch.
