If it has a speed selection switch than this switch is likely to be bad, other than that are you sure that It once has high spin in the cycle you are using??

with the machine empty see if you can lift up only the tub and see if it drops down.check to make sure there is nothing between the tub and outer tub have you gotten an f-51 error?

If you spin the drum by hand, and it is niosy and rumbling then the main drum bearings have failed.
If under 5 years old, then you should be able to get it repaired under Hotpoint 5 year guarantee, You just pay for labour and call out, cheapest option, it is not really a D.I.Y job, as it is quite involved, and entails a lot of work.
Please rate my advice.

I had the same problem with my Frigidaire Affinity front load washer. It would go through the wash cycle but would not do the final spin cycle that takes the access water out of the clothes. It would actually cut off when it got to be 6 minutes left. I checked the hoses, belt, motor and pump but all were functioning properly. I even cleaned out the filter thats located in front of the water pump. It was full of coins and other debris but it still didnt fix the problem. I called the repairman and he concluded that the control board was bad and would have to be relaced. The board is $200 and labor $140. It will cost you $340 dollars to correct this problem unless you know how to replace the control board yourself. Only had the washer for 3 years. I wouldnt expect something like that to occur within that short period of time.

sounds like a bearing... although it could be the water pump... water pump is an easy fix... bearing is not an easy fix... take the belt off the bottom of the pump (under the machine) and see if it spins freely by turning it w/ your hand... or if it seems really stiff... if it looks good then it's def. your bearing...
