my Hotpoint Aquarius 1200 WM64, worked fine, but is now stuck on an intermittent slow spin, it does not speed up at, and when I turn off and change the programme, it stills continues in the slow spin mode.

I have taken off the drain hoses and cleaned etc.

any hints or ideas it must be the electronic control board? I am assuming it is not the brushes as it does turn over?.. any help or something I should try... besides buying a new one.

Thank you

I find that this sometimes happen if you are washing one heavy item like a bath mat. If you add some more items the fast spin resumes. Hope that this helps.

Changed the brushes... still stuck on very slow spin, spins very slowly 1 revolution... then stops for about a minute, then slow spin again..

What do I blow down?

remove the lid and on the right hand side is a red presure switch attached to that is a clear tube dissconnect from the switch and blow down tube there should be not restiction on it ,if theres water in the drum you should be blowing bubbles to clear the gunge in it.

The tube is clear, blowing and sucking..

You can here the "switch" mechanism but the knob on the outside does not turn.
no matter where the switch is on the dial (wash program) it does the slow spin thing, here indoors is pushing for new one..

Spin another day looking for a replacement !!!

Thank you for the help and suggestions, last gasp.
