Wash cycle spin repeatedly doesn't get going

Hi folks

Hoping someone can help... 

I have a Beko washing machine. Suddenly today, the wash cycle has developed a fault. 

It starts each little spin, does maybe half a spin, and stops (stops even trying). A minute or so later it does the same again. 

The motor sounds fine to me, and it had been working well until today. I've cleaned the filter etc, and turned the drum by hand and it seems fine. 

Can anyone suggest what that is likely to be, so I can decide next steps (repair or replace)?

I took the back off to check the band. All seemed fine. And oddly, now it's working! 


But the motor does sound very rattly, almost like its hitting something. 


Is that normal (when the back is off, I presume it's noisier!)

It may have a fault. But make sure it isn't just that it couldn't balance the load properly Washing machine won’t spin just one item or very small load
