Check the Tacho on the rear of the motor, or the brushes in the motor.

how do i check the taco ?
Expert:  George-Allsorts replied 1 year ago.

I suspect it will be the brushes, however, to check the tacho, disconnect the plug for the motor, find the two wires from the motor plug that go to the tacho, connect your multimeter to those wires on ohms, then spin the drum... If you do not get a reading the tacho is defective.
