the service manual is great. The long and short of it the fault display indicated wash motor fault. Looking through the manual it appears that it could be wiring problem or the motor itself. I have taken off the rear panel and have a good look at the motor. The belts all look good and the wiring appears to be intact. The motor itself has a grey silver residue on the coil. My assumption is that is from the wear of the brushes. I do not have the electrical diagram for this machine. How can I go about testing the wiring and the motor?

This washer has the FHP-style motor so you should be able to replace the brushes separately using this part ==> Motor Brush
You should replace both brushes at the same time so buy two AFTER you confirm that the brushes can be replaced separately on your washer. If they can, there will be obvious retaining screws that hold the brush holster onto the motor frame.
Double check your motor

Sometimes the brushes will wear unevenly, I'm pretty sure it's because of the direction of the motor turning at high speed for spin cycle causes the one brush to have a much heavier load against it then in the slow agitate/tumble mode, (IE: agitate/tumble just turns the motor slowly back and forth in both directions, high speed spin mode is always in the same direction).
