Default Esc/motor problem

I was running my Stampede the other day and the truck stopped moving, the steering worked though. I thought the xl-5 esc quit working. I tried reprogramming the esc but it would not program. I then tried putting in an extra 540Emaxx motor I had ( Titan 14.4v) and the esc programmed just fine. The truck also ran fine (slow though). I have 2 questions for you all.

1. Can a motor, broken or not, affect thespeed controls ability toprogram?

2. I was running in mud and very wet dirt. Could something be clogging up the motor I had (SpeedGems 17t double wound). Is there a way toopen it up or clean it out?
