    That's what I'm trying to decide.

    In which case, running the machine empty obviates it being a problem due to an imbalanced load. What happens if you try to run it empty, does it spin?

    I had to go out before the maintenance wash ended. But the dial finished between H (spin) and J (dry) which suggests that it did spin.

    Doing a regular wash now, so more suspense for you.

    No, it suggests that it went past the point when it should have spun.

    Possibly just play in spindle/knob of the programmer. I think it would be pretty obvious if it had not spun

    Perhaps by the fact it would be sopping wet?

    It was a "maintenance wash". There was nothing in the tub.

    OK, it seems that the spinning function isn't working. I just timed it and it lasted two and a half minutes, which was a lot less than I would have expected, but apparently is normal https://homex.com/ask/how-long-is-spin-cycle-on-washing-machine. But I believe that the setting on the central dial is the speed in rotations per minute. I have it set for 850, and, what it actually does seems to be more like 100rpm when I watch it. The clothes are dripping wet after this. So it looks like that is the problem.

    Have you checked the main motor brushes?
