Hi; I have a Sears Kenmore Series 70 washer that is approximately 19 years old. It washes just fine, but when it's time for it to drain and spin after the rinse cycle sometimes (most times) it will drain but won't spin - unless I raise the lid and put it back down - then it starts spinning. Any ideas?

....... unless I raise the lid and put it back down ...
The transmission is a neutral spin. After the wash cycle completes, the machine starts the drain cycle almost immediately. After approximately two minutes the timer will pause the motor operation causing the clutch to engage the spin tube and release the brake and continues into the spin cycle. Check for the pause. If there's no pause replace the timer
