Long shot guess here but ...have you checked / replaced the carbon brushes of the electric motor ???? common problem I have had before.
If it is not the brushes then it could be segments of the motor burnt out which could be expensive.
Hey Joe, Let’s check to see if the wash basket will rotate CCW in Spin Only Cycle with no clothes in the wash basket 1.Open the lid and rotate the wash basket by hand Counter Clockwise, CCW.The wash basket should rotate freely with no restriction.The wash basket will not rotate Clockwise, CW by hand. 2.Raise the top of the machine.Insert a flat blade putty knife approximately 2.5” from the left and right sides of the washer top, depress the spring tabs securing machine top to the washer base.Raise the top of the machine to observe the wash basket and tumbler action described in step 3. (See page 33 of the Service Manual for putty knife insertion point). 3.With the top raised start a Spin Only cycle with no clothes in the wash basket, observe the wash basket it should begin to rotate CCW does it?.Watch the tumblers, they should not rotate in spin cycle (maybe ½ turn at the start of spin cycle and that’s all).If the tumblers rotate while the wash basket is rotating you have a clutch malfunction.If the basket does spin CCW and the tumblers are rotating then you have a broken clutch spring.Let do those checks and observations and see what the next troubleshooting steps will be.Rich
Suspect motor brushes need replacing.
Simple task accessed by removing the top of the washer and releasing the clips holding the brushes into the motor - clip on back of brush - to remove the brush assembly.
Replace complete brush assembly.
Hi there, this problem sounds as though the carbon brushes are needing replaced or infact just needing to be cleaned of dust or dirt. Its very common for the brushes to be covered in dust and fibres. Im not sure where the brushes will be on this model but I hope this helps you in someway.
Sometimes the Brushes on the motor can cause intermitten rotation. The brushes are the electrical contacts for the motor to rotate. When they wear down or degrade (and need replacing) under spin conditions the motor may fail to turn as it may have hit a dead spot on the motors commutator.
Best course of action is to see if the Brushes need replacing. The cost of new Brushes is < £20. The labour may be vastly more if you pay someone - but it should be done in less the 0.5 hour.
Brushes usually come in pairs (Pack of two).
If your unit is hotpoint I can offer some instruction on how to fit yourself.
