The E59 error code indicates that there is no tacho signal for 3 seconds. You will want to do the following:
1. Remove the belt from the motor and spin the motor pulley.

2. Spin the tub pulley. Does the tub spin free? No, check the tub
bearings. Yes, go to step (3).
3. Disconnect the plug from the drive motor and measure the
resistance between pins 4 and 5 in the motor. If the meter
reads other than between 105 and 130 ohms, replace the
motor. If the reading is between 105 and 130 ohms, go to step
4. Disconnect the plug from the motor and measure the resistance
of the windings (pin 1 to 2, pin 1 to 3, pin 2 to 3). All readings
should be between 4 and 6 ohms. If readings are correct,
replace the Speed Control Board. If readings are incorrect,
replace the motor.
