Question about Washing Machines
I do not think it is related to the motor, depending on the model of the machine it is most likely either something caught between the basket and tub that is holding up the drive system or a failure in the transmission or basket drive.
If you could find the full model number, it is usually on the top under the lid or on the back console that would help in determining what the issue might be

As per the symptoms you have mentioned its either debries in the drain pipe mechanism or arround the pump which is making this sound and making the tub stop spin in middle of a spin. I would request you to take the front access panel off by the screws underneath the panel. There would be a white cap facing you. Unscrew slowly. Be careful as there would be some water bellow. Once it comes completely out, you'll see all the junk in the filter. Remove the lower panel and clean the drain pump filter. Once the panel is removed the filter will be right in front. Unscrew the filter cover and you should find a ton of lint and stuff in there. This model has a pressure switch that detects if there is water in the tub. If so it will do this pause and slow spin. Once the pump filter is clean you should be good.
Let us know if you want something else please accept the solution.
