Ill Candy Grand O Washing Machine. Any advice?

My Candy Grand O (model 1482) washing machine has been playing up this week and won't complete a cycle. The machine comes on, fills with water, spins for 3 secs and then stops for 10 minutes. It does this for some time until the Stain Vanish button flashes and then that's it. The light flashes 8 times which according to the fault codes means 'Motor tacho fault - washing machine motor tacho detected as open circuit or shorted'.

Is there anymore that I can do, or do I need to call a repairman? What are the chances this is easily fixable?

Many thanks!
