hoover am110 washing machine fault. any assistance?

hi folks,
i got me a hoover am110 washing machine. I seen some of the other post so i know what i got to look forward to, but they arnt my fault. What i happening, is that the machine works fine, until it goes onto a fas spin. when it builds up for a fast spin, everything is fine and then a it goes for the big push, it blows the electrics in the house. I hav replaced the brushes in the mnotor, as i noticed that there wa evidence of "arcing" from the brass surrounds of the carbon brushes and figured this was probably hitting the armature and doing no good Sadly this has not solved the problem. So folks, what is my next move Im not a electrician by trade, but have some electrical knowleg through my work. Is there anything else it could be that i could tes with a multimeter or is it off to the repair shop?
any help or suggestions would be appreciated as we are getting nea christmas and so money isnt as free flowing as it could be.....
many many thanks

Test each pin on the motor connection socket to the motor metal casing with the meter set on meg ohms, see if the insulation is down on the motor.

That what was the case with mine.
I even ripped the motor apart to try and find it. Buried in the windings... Probably a chafed through inuslation on the stator.
Get a new motor if it shows ANY resistance windings to case...

if it helps i have additional information, the electric trips when th machine is running through a cycle and gets to the spin. If however, turn the machine off, and then select the fast spin and turn th machine on, it runs through the spin. This makes me think that perhap the wash selector is giving up the ghost, or is it possible that ther is a capacitor of some kind that is not charging up correctly during wash cycle, but does however charge when the spin is selecte seperatley, or am i just grasping at straws and should i admit defea and let a propper washing machine fixing man have a look at it
