Spin cycle only spins after I lift and re-close door

Spin cycle only spins after I lift and re-close door

My top-loaded Kenmore washing machine won’t spin on the spin cycle unless I open the door at the start of the spin cycle. It sounds like it’s spinning, but nothing happens until I lift the lid (which stops the motor), and then re-close the door (which then starts the spinning). Since the spin function works when I re-close the door, I have a hard time thinking it’s the coupler or pressure switch. Also, since the motor runs without intervention, I don’t think it’s the lid switch

ANSWERS:

@kenneo1 the lid switch is a funny multi function thing on those washers. This is a situation where I would definitely start with it. There is nothing else on the control board etc. that would recognize a “double tap” from the lid switch.
