The machine cannot advance to the high speed spin cycle unless the wash water is drained first. This can be an issue with the drain so set the machine to drain only and if the pump works without problem then the issue is with the door latch. It is safety feature of the washer not to advance to the high speed spin cycle unless the door latch is properly activated. The intermittent behavior of the problem indicates a loose connection either in the harness connection between the door latch and the machine control or the door latch itself.

Check to make sure that the harness connection between the door latch and the machine control is intact and fully inserted to both parts. The connections must be snug fit and corrosion-free. Reseating the connections several times will help clean off dirt and corrosion build-up in the terminals and the connectors.

The door latch definitely needs to be replaced if there's no issue found with the harness and the connections. Remove the spring and wire hoop assembly securing the door seal to the outer lip of the door opening then peel off enough part of the door seal near the door latch. Remove the screws securing the door latch to the front panel then take door latch out. Install the new door latch and put the door seal back onto the outer lip of the door opening then secure it with the spring and wire hoop assembly.

The motor controller (speed controller) may be faulty, or the load balance sensor.
Are there any visible indicators when it slows/stops?
What is the exact model # of the unit please?

    the model is ATSAOAWN S/N 070901620 it will start to spin -- slows to tumble then tries to spin again but doesn't ramp up---.the out balance switch bypassed.

My Speed Queen washer shakes and walks during the spin cycle. I have leveled the machine and ajusted the amount of clothes in subsequent loads and it still shakes. How do I solve this? Thank you!

Did you remove the shipping bolts from the back of the washer? They are located on the back, usually very clearly marked "REMOVE" and have a red or yellow plastic washer/bushing. This is a fairly common problem with front load washers, from what I understand.

They're big suckers, and they keep the drum suspension from absorbing any vibration (so the drum doesn't slam around during shipping). Good luck!

My speed queen washer made a high pitch noise when spinning. i took the front off and saw the belt was almost cut in half. how do i replace it?

Easy,It just slips over the fluid drive after disconnecting the link to the spin solenoid, then on to the pump pulley.
Adjustment is made by the motor mount.adjustment bolt.
Good luck.
