Kenmore 417.44152400 front-loader will not run

I have a Kenmore 417.44152400 front-loader washing machine. During a load, my husband said it was sounding loud (he described it as a clanking/rattling), then stopped. The clothes inside were very wet (it had not run the final spin). All the lights were still on, and the door was locked. We tried to cancel; all the lights went off but the door would not unlock. After several tries, it finally unlocked. Then we tried to run a drain/spin cycle. It came on and started to drain (although the drain sounded a little rougher than usual), then stopped again, with the indicators still lit. Same things with a regular cycle - water started to enter, then stopped with lights still lit. When I try to get a diagnostic code, the 5 lights above the Pause button AND the start button flash together and beep 5 times, the light above the Start button flashes (no beep) 1 time, then the lights for the wash light up: garment washing, final spin, add garment, spin setting, and options, with the start button flashing until you release the buttons and the machine goes back to sleep. I'd appreciate any help with this.
