Zanussi ZWF 1420w

Can anyone help me with this motor, the zwf1420w washing machine is showing an error code of 5flashes on the end led and 1flash on the start led. Is this a motor fault as the drum is not turning. The bearings were getting noisey and I ordered new ones with a new tub seal and changed the interlock then the error code changed so have not changed the bearings yet. I thought it could be brushes on the motor but no brushes are listed as parts for this motor. What should I do? A new motor seams ridiculous in price after the cost of the bearings, tub seal and interlock. But I really wanted to fix this machine.

I can't see brushes for the motor either. Throwaway machines these days. If the brushes in the motor have worn out or are jammed you can easily tell. Use this article carbon brushes diagnostics - It's definitely not worth fitting bearings, door interlock and a motor.
