I have a Maytag model MAH5500B that starts to fill , stops and LR appears in indicator lights. Any suggestions?

remove the belt from the motor pulley and make sure motor spins freely,check the 3 windings with an ohmmeter for appx 8-11 ohms each,then check all connections everywhere by removing and reinserting them,then try to run the diagnostics from the tech sheet inside the washer,if all this fails then replace the M.C.U. motor control unit
