I am really sorry for the delayed response. That error means Locked Rotor, a motor issue. Typically, it is a faulty motor control that causes that error, unless the tub cannot move. Will the tub turn by hand?
The tech sheet for your machine is attached. Will the tub move in the Quick Spin Test part of the diagnostic cycle?
Will it now start a new cycle and run?
The door unlocked with the tub spinning?
I believe the issue lies with the motor. If you remove the belt and spin just the motor shaft, is it noisy?
The motor should not be running with the tub unlocked. That tells me that either the motor is uncontrollable or there is a control issue. Given there is noise present with the error code, yes, I do need to know if the motor makes noise when spun by itself.
I believe the motor is likely faulty.
There is a sensor in the motor that reports the RPM to the control. That will make the motor uncontrollable if it fails because the control does not know what it is doing and it sill shut down with that error.
The control is likely getting the message that the motor is not moving, even though it is, hence the reason the door opened with the tub spinning. I would replace the motor. Would you like a link to that part?
