No has been ok had the mod drum & bearings fitted when it was 18 months old machine now over ten yrs old

If you set to a rinse and spin cycle does your machine fill with water, then empty, but with no drum rotation?

fills & emptys & drum turns when on spin cycle turns at regular speed & spin light flashes , have tried with no load in drum then spins but not at full speed
