Bad drain pump or something else

My Whirlpool Duet stopped working today. Error code F09 / E01. I used a shop vac to remove the water out of the drain lines (no problem). While there was some lint / debris build up, nothing that indicated a clogged line. So I tested the machine again and found the same issue. I opened the machine and removed and cleaned the drain filter. While I had access, I pulled the pump (which was very warm) and tested the motor (Askoll M75). I found continuity and a resistance of 17.4 Ohms. The impeller isn't blocked and will turn. So I tested the power to the motor and found 118 volts. My instinct is this motor is going bad.
1. Is 17.4 Ohms too high for the pump motor?
2. If so, does anyone sell just the pump motor and not the entire assembly?
