My washing machine stops working in the high spin cycle.  This has happened maybe 6 times in the last 6 months, but has been happening more frequently.  It usually happens with heavier loads, like towels.  Washing machine works, agitates, but will stop spinning in the high spin cycle and all the clothes don’t have the water out at the end.  If I unplug the machine and open and close it several times and then run a wash cycle I can get it to work again.  I’m guessing there is a part or sensor that is starting to wear out and I would like to fix it before I can’t get the washer to work at all.
Thank you!
