I have a Hitachi, and it has a "Mix Bread" cycle that stops and beeps so you 
know when to put raisins etc. in. This occurs 4 minutes before the Knead 
cycle ends and the First Rise begins. I think if you just opened the lid and 
threw the raisins in at this point without stopping the machine, it would 
work just as well. I haven't tried this but I've often added extra flour or 
water at any point without stopping the machine.
