Maytag Neptune MAH5500BWW, Serial No. B2546159EV, electrical

Customer Question

Hello, Maytag Neptune MAH5500BWW, Serial No. B2546159EV, electrical bump possibly (Fort McMurray after power came back, after evacuation), will not agitate. It ramps up for 5 seconds and stops for 5 and repeats. Also, it does this once more after the power is turned off and lights are out. When I do the door lock and unlock test, it sends the signal every 4-5 seconds instead of every second. I get a Lr code in service mode. The machine control panel has been replaced (by a rebuilt panel). I get the correct ohms going into the motor (6-7.5, and 155-195).
JA: Can you guesstimate how old your Maytag is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?
Customer: 2005 about
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: yes
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?

That is a locked rotor code when that happens if the drum spins freely you will need to replace the motor control kit 100%

Is there an electrical test I can do to confirm this?

I can send you the guide to test the motor circuit if you would like to test it

I have this manual. It is very confusing and does not give enough info. How is the lock/unlock signal test connected to the motor and wires, and why am I only getting signal every 4 seconds and not every second?
