"sensor drum" or (better) "position sensor" (service manual code : 55X3607)
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.

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 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.

Update No2:
I discover that the problem reappeared occasionally when my wife loaded too much of clothes (in kilos) into the washing machine.
I suspect that if the load of the clothes is heavier than the specs of the machine, the motor can not rotate fast enough the drum and the sensor does not read the correct rpms. So it throws the error.
So, before do any repair, test the machine with a smaller load of clothes.
Hope it helps!!

How to operate top loader brandt malice AA washing machine

Hi guys! Please help me. I used the Brandt Malice top loader with a horizontal drum. I don't think the doors on the drum were clipped closed properly and now when I open the machine the drum is not facing up so I can't open it? It also won't spin. What do I do? There is clothes in there and the machine is off, but the drum seems stuck? Please help!
