Remove the front lower panel, screws underneath. Be prepared for water, drain out from drain hose. Check filter for clogging, clean out. Sometimes when the load is unbalanced & the machine cannot adjust the load it stops. To avoid this make sure your wash is mixed with big and small clothes.
If this does not work remove the rear panel & check belt, should have half inch ‘give’. Still not good, remove belt, unscrew 2 bolts that hold the motor, unplug the motor connector, lever the motor back with a screwdriver. Check the motor brushes, if they are any shorter than 1 cm replace brushes.

There is a thermal cutout in the motor, but unfortunately it is not resettable.
The only way to be sure if it is faulty, is to check it for continuity with a meter, if it is open circuit, it can be bypassed, but this then leaves the motor unprotected, but it will prove if the fault is in the motor, or elsewhere.
It could be a blown track on the control board caused by the brushes shorting, in addition, to an open circuit thermal cut-out.

Testimonial: "I had already decided to split the motor and check it out thoroughly and yes it was the thermal cut out open circuit. Fixed and all working again. Ta."
Check the motor housing for an overload button, usually on the back and coloured black or red. Give it a push and if it clicks then the motor might have just been a bit stressed out and popped it.
Next two things are more serious unfortunately. The relay on the circuit board might have burnt contacts from switching the motor over the machines life, or, one of the motors windings has developed a fault. (these are both pretty rare though).
