If it doesn't pause, you can do that manually by simply opening the lid for a few seconds and closing again. If this doesn't put it into spin, you will need to remove the cabinet, jump out the lid switch and observe the clutch operation during spin.
the clutch makes a click noise, and its getting extremely hot..is the clutch incharge of engaging the spin mode? thank you eric. i've had this no spin problem before and it's always been the lid switch.
