Question about Washing Machines
Sometimes the Brushes on the motor can cause intermitten rotation. The brushes are the electrical contacts for the motor to rotate. When they wear down or degrade (and need replacing) under spin conditions the motor may fail to turn as it may have hit a dead spot on the motors commutator.
Best course of action is to see if the Brushes need replacing. The cost of new Brushes is < £20. The labour may be vastly more if you pay someone - but it should be done in less the 0.5 hour.
Brushes usually come in pairs (Pack of two).
If your unit is hotpoint I can offer some instruction on how to fit yourself.
