Most often when that coil is bad the motor or drain pump is shorted. Motor is most likely. You should look for lots of black powder in the bottom near the motor. Also use wiring diagram and check all 3 motor windings for resistance. The drain pump ois a simple resistance check as well. If motor checks good replacement of module is next step to determine other causes. If both motors are fine surge was likely issue.
