Hi there, my washing machine was doing the same as the one you have mentioned.
I bought a replacement timer from the website highlighted below. It has done the trick and every programme works properly now.
A competent DIY person can change one of these easily and will take about 30 minutes to do.
The new part looks slightly different but it carries the same part number.

Both are initiated by the programmer unit? Is the water supply getting to the machine, has a tap/valve inadvertently been closed. i If water is getting to it then if the programmer is working correctly the pump should trandport the water? If water is not being introduced the machine will not rotate.
I think the issues are both associated with a faulty programmer probably
Reason for taking a long time spinning is that it might have an uneven load. The wrong number of bath towels, for instance will mean it takes 3 or 4 tries at getting the spin right before it can spin them at the correct speed. An unbalanced load doesn't do the machine any good either. After this wash has finished try it on something a lot lighter- say a duvet cover only with a couple of pillowcases. If that takes a long time too then the trouble is with the machine. Looks like your "programmer" has stopped on the "spin cycle". Could be a sensor has gone. But everything points to the "little drive" in the programmer. You could try "Manually Rotating The Selector Round a Few Times" (This could free something off) If a new "programmer" is needed, This could be more expensive than a new machine.
If the machine is under a year old it will still be under guarantee. If it is slightly over the year, but under 18 months old you still have a good case to go back to the manufacturer and get them to fix it.
Check your instructions, and see if there is a reset point or function, if there is not ,then it has a control unit malfunction, and unfortunately, this is not something you can fix yourself.
Plz rate my solution.
yes it is the timer,i had the same thing happened to me on a hoover,i was told that the fault was when you turn the timer to a programme to do this slowly and gently and if you go pass a programme not to turn it back but to go forward again until you get to the right programme..hope this helps.all the best..ps a new timer may cost about £80 to £100.
