The machine control through the rotor position sensor (RPS) cannot detect the motor running. The rotor is stuck, the rotor position sensor is faulty, or the machine control is malfunctioning. Open the lid and turn the drum manually. If it turns freely, activate the Manual Diagnostic Mode Test to check the functionality of the rotor position sensor and the machine control. If it doesn't turn freely, let us know to guide you in troubleshooting and repairing it.
The machine should be in standby mode when activating diagnostic test mode. That is, the machine is plugged in will all indicators off, or with only the Clothes Clean indicator on.

The indicators will all light up for 5 seconds with 88 displayed in the Estimated Time Remaining display if the test mode has been successfully entered.
Repeat the procedure if the test mode is not activated. You may choose another button. Let us know if it cannot be activated after multiple attempts failed.
Press the same button chosen above before the indicators turn off (5 seconds). A single beep sounds and the two-digit console ID number is displayed. After 3 seconds the display is cleared (00) and the Add a Garment indicator flashes.
Open the lid and rotate the basket manually. The Wash, Rinse, and Spin status indicators should toggle on and off according to the rotation of the basket.
