Kenmore 70 Series Washer Stalls Just Before Draining

My washer just started to stall when it reaches the point where it should drain the tub after the rinse cycle. That is, the dial advances to the asterisk marker (rinse & spin) and the tub fills. There's some agitation and the dial starts to advance to the diamond marker (spin only). There's a click sound which I assume is the point where the tub should drain. After that, nothing happens. I let the washer sit for a half hour without the dial advancing or the tub draining.
However, if I give the washer a healthy whack on the same side as the dial, the tub starts draining. and most times completes through the spin only cycle. Other times, I give the washer a whack, it drains for a few seconds, then stops, I give it another whack, it drains for a few seconds, then stops, and so on. Eventually, the dial advances to a point where the washer drains completely, and continues on through the final spin cycle.
Where do I start diagnosing?
