Good morning,
Check your discharge hose, the grey one, is not blocked, check your filter is not blocked. E20 is machine not emptying water, at worse your pump is gone.
Best tip is remove your grey hose from the waste system give the end a good clean with disinfectant first then blow really hard down it several times, this should be enough to dislodge anything blocking it or the filter or the pump intake, then see if your machine will empty if it does all well and good you can then remove the filter housing for inspection and cleaning. if it was your pipe blocked likely it will of pumped the blockage out when it emptied.
