My thought as well
The STATOR looks to be very clean (and new).
Possibly a factory *dud* ?
I would remove the *plug* on the STATOR itself---and inspect it for a missing pin connector or broken wire (from the Stator coils).
Many STATORS---on older washers---can look absolutely rough. Completely coated with a black residue (Bearing Seal Leak)---having been saturated by moisture/water umpteen times---and still functions perfectly.
