If your program is in an infinite loop it has not errored, except in logic. Therefore there is no error code. You could get an Sx22, where x is one of several digits, which is caused by the job being cancelled by some means, which determines x.
The problem I have is that people can explain things quickly but I can only comprehend slowly.

Does this ever work correctly or does certain data cause the neverending loop?

Suggest you implement a counter to terminate any loop after a "reasonable maximum" times thru the loop.

You will probably need to add a bit of diagnostic code to determine why the code never comes out of the loop.
Hope this helps,
