Based on what you wrote, I would guess that you may have some damage to the motor. Can you manually spin the basket by hand in both directions? I assume the answer is yes, so my next step would be to access the control panel area to look for the diagnostic and test mode information to determine the specific problem based on fact rather than my educated guess. Like I said earlier, if you can move the tub by hand, but the machine cannot move in one specific direction on its own, I would guess that there is a motor failure. Other options would be a MCU.
I hope this helps

thanks. i’m going to look at it later. i’ll let you know what I find.
Something might be stuck between the tub and the basket that could be rubbing against the basket only when it rotates to the left. It is very difficult to see if something is stuck in there and also very difficult to remove.
