Washer not spinning

My washer is doing the exact same thing. When it began acting up, it smelled like rubber burning. Figured it was a belt. It wont engage the spin cycle by itself. It just hums. I have to open the lid and then close it back in order for it to spin. Then it is as if nothing is even wrong until the next load. I have been told to replace the pump. $25 fix.

Look inside cabinet about 6 inches from floor you you may see a streak of oil. If there you need a gearcase top seal, clutch and drive coupler. lean washer back against wall to look under it.
