Look for signs of water leakage at center tub bearing area at top of transmission. If seal has failed and has been leaking just little amounts of water, (hardly enough to notice), that bearing will be going out and causing a slow spin.

Also, check the drain hose. They have a "duck bill" check valve that might have something caught inside.
