Sounds like your timer is failing to pause for the final spin application.
Put your timer on spin, raise and close the lid and see if it spins.
If so, it is time for a new timer.
If no, you possibly have a bad lid switch.

What is your model number?

Take the cover off jumper the lid switch and set to spin look at the clutch and see if it's rotating if it is you probably need a new clutch if not it's likely the transmission.

If you are a handy man type you could go into the
 tranny and inspect the main drive gear and spin pawl.
The spim pawl is located beneath the main drive gear.
If it gets smashed down it won't catch.
