after reading up on a site posted by wemorgon it turns out its a stepper motor with a start capacitor on the side,to test it if i spin the drum by hand after shorting out the front door safety switch it runs fine,but when i put washing in the drum and do the same it runs for say 10 seconds then stops.is it the motor or the start capacitor

I'd suspect the capacitor. A very common fault and easy fix.
