Washer fills, and completes wash cycle but when it trys to shift into spin the motor runs but the transmission does not fully ingage the gears, if I open the lid for a second or so and close it it will engage and spin as it should. This happens through the intire cycle. Thanks for your help. dhu1988

The loading door does have a saftey switch for the spin cycle ... they can go bad or can switch intermitently when washer shakes.
If the switch is not the problem ...The clutch assembliy is out of adjustment ... possibly worn mechanism internally. There is a solenoid that holds the clutch assembly in gear. That maybe intermitant.
Unfortunately most all manufactures make specialty tools that are made only for there washers. I personally have a half-dozen wrenches that I have to fit most of them.
I would suggest calling a "Liscensed Factory Certified" Appliance Repair Company that works on your particular brand and model.
Honest Companies offer a "flat-rate" diagnostic fee. If they determines the Clutch assembly has to be replaced ... consider the COST before having it repaired.

Is the timer going through the wash time? Is the motor running but nothing happening? If the motor is running, then either it has not shifted into wash or the transmission is broken. An electrical coil shifts the transmission, it could be bad, or the trans it self is shot, time for a new washer.
When you say the rest of the cycles. make sure it is spinning. That washer will fill up and drain and not agitate or spin if you have broken the couplier between the motor and transmission the motor reverses. tip the machine back and feel right behind the motor for a plastic coupler. In wash check the bottom part of the agitator if its moving and the top is not you will have to replace the doggets in the agittator.
Your symptoms that indicates a broken motor coupler. If your washer will
drain and fill but has not agitation action or spinning action that
would indicate a broken motor coupler. The motor coupler links the
drive motor to the transmission.
