Ok, this type of issue (given the answers above) is usually caused by one of three possibilities..

  1. The appliance is Out Of Balance
    This can be caused by laundry weights being uneven, or by a fault on the sensor of the PCB
  2. There is a blockage in the drain.
    If water is still in the appliance due to the failure of a drain cycle to emit all water, then the appliance will not spin.
  3. MOST LIKELY The carbon brushes of the motor are worn and require changing...
    This allows the motor to turn during normal tumble, but not spin when it has weight in it.
    Try filling the appliance with water but not clothes.. Then when the drain/spin cycle is due, if the appliance drains ok and spins at full speed when not having weight in it, then it is highly likely that the carbon brushes need changing
