Check the connections at the motor for damaged or loose connections. Most washers have a 2 speed motor. The normal cycle uses the high speed all the time. The permanent press cycle will use the low speed during the cool down in the last rinse. That's probably the "sweet spot" you referred to. If you have a delicate cycle try it.

Since I don't know what model you have, my guess is the high speed windings of your motor are not getting the proper voltage or they are bad.
