"sensor drum" or (better) "position sensor" (service manual code : 55X3607 http://www.2shared.com/document/HqarbJ-V/TX768AF_FA.html ). Problem : After three or more minutes the machine stops spining. Solution : Check the service manual at page 12 & 13 and you will see a component (part 427) which has two little cords. Disconnect and reconnect this plug thoe or three times in order the pins inside the plug to clear from the dirty. If you have you can spray it with some spray for electronics. After this power on your washing machine. If this does not work you have to replace the position sensor as "bill.spyrakopoylos" says.
Update : The problem is on sensor's cable contacts (pins). It seems that when the machine is working, the vibration "disconnects" the cable from the sensor. I tried to clean contacts (pins) many times, but the problem reappeared after 2 or 3 weeks or months. So, I cut a little piece of sensor's plastic case to expose its contacts (pins) and solder directly the cable to sensor's contacts. This method solved the problem many months ago.
If this does not work you have to replace the position sensor.
You can also use a window magnetic sensor from a house alarm.

Could be several reasons:
- Selected the "Night cycle" program (means standing with the drum full of water, reason: too much noise in the spin cycle)
- Set to the "Rinse hold" (means standing with the drum full of water, reason: wrinkles on the clothes)
According to your description I think that this is not a failure otherwise error E20 will be appears on display.
Once the washing programme has come to an end, END illuminates on the programme progress display.
If RINSE HOLD was selected, the display beside the START/ PAUSE button flashes. 1. After a rinse hold, the water must first be pumped out:
- Either press the START/PAUSE button (the water is pumped out and the washing is spun according to the completed programme;
After the START/PAUSE button is pressed again, the spin speed can still also be changed during spinning), or
- Turn the programme selector to PUMP OUT and press the START/PAUSE button (the water is pumped out without spinning),or
- Turn the programme selector to SPIN or SHORT SPIN and press theSTART/PAUSE button (the water is pumped out and the washing is spun or gently spun).
At the end of this programme step, the END indicator will illuminate. 2. Open the door.
As soon as the DOOR indicator lights up green, the door can be opened.
The typical cycle is; fills to selected water level agitates wash cycle drains wash water spins wash cycle fills to selected water level on rinse cycle agitates on rinse cycle drains rinse water spins final time end of cycle

Open the front door and load the clothing into the washing machine. Check the owner's manual for the maximum load size. Overloading the washing machine may interfere with its ability to spin the clothes and rinse them clean.
Fill the detergent receptacle on the front of the washing machine, making sure not to fill it past the indicated line. Always use a liquid detergent that is designed for front-loading washing machines.
Add bleach or fabric softener, if needed. Most front-loading washing machines have a section for fabric softener inside the detergent receptacle. Check the instructions on the bleach to find out when it should be added to the washing machine.
Close the front door of the washing machine and make sure it locks into place. The machine usually will not turn on unless the door is securely locked.
Check the owner's manual to find out how to select the different options and wash cycles. As a general rule, use warm or cold water for most types of colored clothing. Hot water should only be used when washing white cotton items.
Start the front-loading washing machine and let it run through the entire wash, rinse and spin cycles before opening the door to unload the clothing.
Washing machine stops at the spin cycle - light flashes. Have to drain water out manually. Happened last week and was then able to run an empty rinse cycle. Machine worked normally for another week. Same problem today but have had to drain water manually from the drum after trying an empty 90 wash and rinse cycle (both stopped on the Spin and flashed). Any ideas? Thanks. x
