Have a Siemens WI12S140GB washing machine. Washing locked in

This answer was rated:

Have a Siemens WI12S140GB washing machine. Washing locked in and door won't open. Have checked the filter and it is now clear (removed a hair grip). Problem now is multiple lights come on but nothing happening. Sounds like pump is running free. Have unplugged for number of minutes and plugged back in. Same thing when trying a spin or other cycle, nothing moving
Hi Are any lights flashing?If so which are flashing? If not then which lights are coming on? Regards

Hi Daniel.
rinse, wash & 400 spin speed flashing. Start/pause button.
Hi Thanks for that. This error code you have here is a water leak in the base.What you need to do for this is pull the washer out from under the unit and lean it 45 degrees backwards as this will allow the water to drain out from the base of the washer.Once the water is out the flood switch will reset itself and clear the flashing lights. Then retry the washer and see how it goes. If it happens again then theres a water leak in there which you need to find and fix to cure this. So try that and see what you find as that's what the flashing lights mean that you have flashing. Regards
Hi Just wondering how you got on with the appliance as the question is still open? Do you need more info? If so just get back to me. If not then if you could remember to rate the answer that would be great. Many thanks
