As long as the drum turns freely you probably have a control board problem. The wire harness issue may have precipitated that as wires may have shorted together. The stator can be at fault too, but that is very rare. Make sure the rotor has no cracks in the magnets.

I would buy any parts from a place that allows returns as this type of problem cannot be diagnosed to 100% certainty.
