What model do you have?
It could be a few things. It may be as simple as an adjustment to the pitch control (if your table has one), it could be the pitch control itself or something more serious.
Is it Belt-driven or Direct drive?

not passing the "wow and flutter" specs, eh?
The most common cause of this is a loose or defective belt. An inferior belt will have varying thicknesses along it's length. When it hits a skinny part, it will slow slightly. When it hits the thick part, it will speed slightly. Overall effect is that the record sounds warped.
needledoctor.com has got some good stuff.

Yes belts do stretch over time, often you will get wow and flutter too with it. Replacing the belt could solve it. If it's old anyway it could do with replacing. Please make a note of how it fits before removing it. Belts are measured in MM (diameter), but with TT belts you need to measure the width.

That selector is basically a small switch that has a blade inside it that slides and makes a contact between some pins: depending on which pins are connected the motor spins faster or slower.
In your case that switch has failed and the contacts are made at random so the motor spins wrongly. To fix it you must replace the switch, a simple electronics job, but one that requires at least a basic experience in electronics and a minimum of tools: a soldering iron, a solder pump and some paste.
If you don't posses all of them you will have to take it to a repair shop - luckily it will be a cheap fix, no more than $50.
