Washer won't spin. Have laid washer on its back (which seems to put lowest strain on seal) and have checked belt (which seems tight). Looks like motor is sealed unit. Sounds like it attempts to spin but nothing happens. Motor and drum turn easily by hand. Draining and then turning on/off allows us to empty it.
Any ideas on how to test if its the motor or the control to it or any other ideas would be much appretiated.

Please check the small thin rubber pipe that is connected to the drum. it acts as a pressure sensor may be it is clogged and not able to give proper water level reading. use skewer or thick flexible wire to clean it.
the belt use a long screwdriver. Put it between the belt (sideways) and
the large wheel, lever the screwdriver to outside while moving the
wheel in clockwise/anticlockwise depending upon where you put the
screwdriver at left/right side. Reverse the procedure for putting the
belt on the wheel. While putting the belt first fit it on the motor
Probably all parts inside drum is ok.Heating element is the only damageable item and a sensor.Changing bearings you must separate the drum, all screws in middle of drum must out and then bearing and zimmerring can be changed.Jan
hi i had the same fault, the machine would go onto pause after a couple of seconds.. after nearly a full strip down of the machine and checking the obvious i found there was carbon dust on the pcb which was causing tracking (the circuit board at the top of the machine). The pcb looked like it was burnt out, but after a quick dust down to remove the carbon and refitted back into the machine it worked fine. HTH
