Thank you did this happen after your husband changed the filter etc?
Or did it have this error before the attempt to fix it?

It takes in cold water small amount and after a few minutes it goes into drain mode. Apparently only one water cold mains goes into the machine

The error F17 appeared and that prompted the cleaning of filters etc

Hi, thank you for that.
the problem is the main control panel is failing.
That will need to be replace to fix this problem.
Its not to difficult to replace with a few basic hand tools.
The best place to get that part is Espares.
I have included all their contact information for you below. Its best to call them for this part. All you need is the full model # ***** your washer .
If you will rate my service to you thus far as ok or better, before closing this page, I will be able stick with you until this fixed.
Please note it won't cost you anything more to rate, and it WILL ensure your question won't time out or end unexpectedly, then you can always contact me the very same way at no additional cost;-)
Thank you and have a wonderful day!

Turns out the part we need won't be available until mid September from ESpares. A bit if a wasted exercise. Still have no working washing machine and probably will have to bring an engineer to my home.

Hi Emer, i will still be here for you then if you do want to do the repair? No additional cost to you;-)
Have a great weekend.
