You are right with your last comment. Laying the machine on its back is a no no. It allows the residue water in the bowl to possibly travel up the small plastic tube and enter into the water level sensor on the main (computer) control unit. It only takes a very small amount of water and it upsets the sensor so that the machine may not go through its cycle correctly. The water (depending on model) is extremely difficult or impossible to get out.
This may cause the machine to think that the bowl is not completely drained and so it will not go into full speed spin. Other problems may occur as well.
Bear in mind also that that a number of machine models do not go to full speed spin on a water temperature setting of warm or higher. When checking for high speed spin put your water temperature control down to cold / warm or cold.
Check also that your machine is sitting level ( the bowl is sitting centre in relation to the top shroud. If the bowl is leaning toward the rear of the machine when you look down into it, the ability to spin may be affected. There is a lever behind the bowl which activates a switch if the bowl comes in contact with it (when the wash load is out of balance) to stop the spin. The switch can also be activated when the machine is not level.
If your problem persists you may have to get a replacement main contol unit. If you are a little savey at technical things you may be able to get a discarded control unit from your local tip or recycler and recover the water level sensor for a change over. This may involve soldering though as well as precautions concerning stored electricity in the control unit capacitors and precautions about static electricity from your body or solder iron destroying other electronic components on the main control unit.
Hope this helps.

you may need to replace the direct drive coupling. this part consists of 3 pieces, an inner rubber piece sandwiched between to nylon pieces. it is situated on the shaft of the motor. it is a wearable part and also an inexpensive part to replace. if you are handy you can do this yourself. hope this is a help to you.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
You will need to type into your search engine/web browser '(make) washer manual' and you should be presented with a number of sources from which you can either download for free or have to pay a nominal amount. During the process you will be asked for the actual model number!
May I also suggest you try the manufacturer's web site direct?

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Providing your particular model has one I would gently suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor/pump lint tray/filter- so many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters.
Following are my complete and hopefully 'coverall' pre-typed guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)
REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT (alternatively use a wet vac as sensibly suggested by VinnyB1234!)
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!). These panels are either held on by (plasic) screws or will just pull off. Most filters are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play.
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. Using something suitable like a glove see if it is easy to briefly slow the motor down. If it is easy then the motor is malfunctioning.
If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!
