I had a similar problem with a different make recently. After cleaning the filter which didn't seem to have anything in it and rinsing the filters on the in and out pipes I took all the clothes out and ran it empty on two different full programmes and somehow the gremlins disappeared and it works fine now.

SOURCE: Washer won't spin.
From Howtomendit: key point I missed was that you need to pull the motor apart after you have taken it out of the machine before you can get access to the screws holding the brushes in. (ie: unscrew the four bolts). Not as difficult or scary as it looked!
please read thro first.
first unplug it, pull it out so you have some work space, take off back plate, remove belt undo (should be white rectangle plastic block with wire attached), remove green+yellow wire undo bolts which hold motor to drum, gently ease out motor (please be aware of sharp edges), run screwdriver down 1 side of motor so you put it back together same way you took it apart, unscrew 4 bolts that hold motor together take top bit of dont loose spacer ring, place to 1 side, remove middle comutator the end the brushes are touching will need a proper clean wd40 maybe wipe clean with cloth so its not dull let dry, undo carbon brushes, take plate off also clean then clean what they were attached to when dry replace in reverse order gently (with new brushes) then replace back on machine plug back in and test by running spin program found at bottom of dail if i have my mod/num right let it get to full spin watch motor if it sparks an looks like blackpool illuminations motors no good will need new 1 sorry.

If the brushes are less than 3 or 4 mm long, then they need replacing.
If still no spin , but washes o/k, then the high speed part of the motor windings could be faulty, which entails replacing the motor.
Please rate my solution.
