Hi it is a Hotpoint WMT05 when it goes in to the spin cycle it turns in both directions but only slowly

Expert:  Daniel replied 2 years ago.
Ok what kind of load is in the washer at the time?
Is it a single item?

Customer: replied 2 years ago.

It is a single item but it is quite heavy (pedestal Mat)

Expert:  Daniel replied 2 years ago.
Ok that will be the problem. These washers if it picks up an uneven load it does this were the drum turns but wont pick up into a spin.

What you need to do is open the door and add towel in there and try it on a spin and you will find this will spin fine.

Try that and let me know how happens.
