Sometimes my washer works just fine - which is why I have put up with it all of this time. Sometimes it will not spin at the end of the wash cycle. Sometimes it does. Sometimes it does not spin after the wash cycle and goes on to the rinse cycle and when the washer stops I find the fabric softener still in the depenser. I sometimes can catch the machine acting up, and if I lift and lower the lid it spins. Sometimes I have to do this more than once to get it to spin. What part is needing replacement?

Re: Spins when it feels like it
Popcorn, sounds like you are having trouble with the lid switch. The plastic housing in which the screws hold the switch to the cabinet may have cracked, or came loose. If the lid switch is not making correct contact the result is no spin, no drain. The switch actuator on the lid itself may need adjustment. The lid switch is mounted to the cabinet on the back right side under the consol. The lid switch part number is 8054980. But check the actuator first. Catriver..post back.

Sounds like clutch not catching,this may need to bed in .The fact it works okay with no load and no spin with load sounds like clutch/ but also could be motor torque.Ask repair man to recheck work done.
I have the same model and problem. I suspect the problem is due to the machines sensor which detects when it is off balance. The problem is most likely to occur when doing something like a single large towel. You can see it thinking about spinning but as soon as the drum starts to wobble it slows back down again.
Any ideas on how to stop this happening (sensor replacement) would be useful.
there are some springs that help hold the tub even as it spins also make sure that the washer is level check front to back side to side and corner to corner if it is unlevel they will be out of balance in high speed spin
