Machine starts but after one minute it just hums

This is for a Calypso automatic washer 2001 Model number 110.2206.
The other day when the washer reached the rinse cycle, it just suddenly froze up and began humming. The clothes were wet but the machine had no standing water. I tried to start a new dry load, but after one minute the machine starting humming again. I am not getting an error code.

Something is locking down the aggitator. The motor will burn up if you keep trying to run it while it is unable to turn so please un jam it then try it again.

Calypso beeping


The washer has a stuck keypad on the console. One of the buttons are stuck and the washer thinks you are holding that button in so it is beeping and will not allowing you to select anything else. It is hard to tell which button it is, although narrowing it down does not help anyway. The console with keypad is sold as one piece and would include the whole console facia and all the buttons. The model number provided is missing 2 digits on the end (ex. GVW9959KL1) and color is also needed for part number but they all seem to retail for $181 or close.
Thank you

Basically its saying that the motor is pulling very high amperes. This could signify a faulty motor, motor controller, or thermal protector, or there could be a mechanical bind in the transmission. i would use a amprobe and check to see how much power is being pulled when the machine starts, and as it is operating if it is 5.55 amps or greater and higher than 20 amps on motor start surge, than the motor controller is correct in saying there is a problem. ------Dont forget to rate my help!!!!!! thanks
