Hi,
This sounds like it is either part of the motor that is burnt out, or a fault on the control board that controls the fast spin speed.
The motors have a number of coils, so a fault with one will cause problems at just one speed.
The power transistors on the control board can also fail - leaving one speed dead, so either of these faults may be the reason yours is not working.

#1 - Check all motor coils
#2 - Check operation of output Power transistors.
Above tests should be performed by competent engineer only.

There is also another fault concerned with an unballanced load - If it spins a few times and bounces a lot, then it will abort the spin cycle. This is usually the fault of the dampers - which are a cheap replacement.

    If it was just that, then the machine should not start at all with the door open ?



    Sorry - I would have expected a motor issue.



    Glad you have it sorted now.

Hi deppgirl,
I checked the lint filter at the front bottom left hand side and it was full of junk.  Once emptied it worked a treat.  Pull the flap down and turn the large knob anti-clockwise and pull to remove.  Good luck.
