No final spin
Take the power plug off the wall. Be prepared for a lot of water before attempting the following. It doesn't spin because the unit is not draining water. It will not spin with water in it - must drain first. Check drain hose for kink,check exit pipe for blockage. Remove the front access panel, bottom front, screws beneath; if you find a hose there with a cap -this is for draining water. Could be your "coin trap assembly" is blocked, therefore not allowing all the water to pump out. Remove the clamp (or unscrew) that connects the trap assembly to the pump and clean it out.
Coming the second aspect if the above gives no result:
Perhaps you need new carbons brushes for the motor. It is a fairly straightforward repair. Remove the top cover, screws at rear, and slide top cover off towards the rear. The motor is located at the top right right rear, you will see the drive belt. Slacken the bolt that holds the motor, and push the motor down towards the top of the drum. You will see the 2 brush holders, they will be either black or white, pull the wires off the holder terminals, and depress the plastic lug that holds the brushes in place, slide the brushes out of the motor. The length of the brush should be at least half an inch long or replace. Fit new genuine carbon brushes, and follow instructions on packaging. Push the leads back on to the carbon terminals. tighten up motor, and make sure the belt is reasonably tight. Test on final spin before you refit top cover.
There are very gud videos on YouTube to guide you.
