Question about Washing Machines
Check the inlet filters, clean the filling chamber and dispenser, take the top off and check out for burnt smell or broken belt in the machine.
but if every thing is ok.
Fault lies in either the motor or the circuit board. It is easy to check the brushes on the motor by a visual check - bit of a pain to remove the motor. you will find a relay to be fused and the fuse blown. the fuse is soldered onto the circuit board. After you open the machine you will find a circuit diagram in the machine which enabled me to diagnose the fault. the parts are available from farnell components and the cost is about $30.00AUD delivered overnight. but as you mentioned the drum is moving/spinning properly and motor is checked ok and brushes are fine on the moor.then its confirmed problem in the electrical panel and the cost is [£120]. the board is most probably not repairable part.on that some parts can be changed and checked like fuse the thermal fuse or transistors.
but other then this the board has to be replaced.

As you seem pretty competent I'll dispense with the "unplug" routine.
Treat the main motor to a new set of carbon brushes, and give it a blow out with canned air.
Machines of this age can suffer loom faults at tie-on points, so check these carefully.
If the motor still does not want to spin with a load in there, then replace the motor run capacitor. When these go weak, it reduces drive, so the motor just "kicks" the drum slightly.
Feel free to remove boards to check them, as the action of removing and re-making connections is often all that is needed to remove slight corrosion on the terminals.
This age of machine also show wear to the dampers - lots of banging about if they are shot.
Best of luck.
