Good Evening

Welcome to JustAnswer and thank you for your question. My name is***** am an expert from Germany and have been working as an equipment technician for 19 years. I work with a language translation program and I would be very grateful for your understanding.
I'm sorry I can't make a call, but another expert can do it for you if you want. I will try to help you as best I can via chat.
I am sorry that you faced this problem!

Please write to me as the first manufacturer and model number of your device so that I have an overview. Please also describe to me which symbols and which LEDs were seen. It may be that you have activated a lock. It could be that the door lock responds to you or the control board.

Please feel free to continue this topic if you have any further questions. I would be very happy to help you!
Kind regards,

It may be that their closing pump is blocked and has not yet pumped out the rest of the water, and when I opened the door today it did not clear. Have you already cleaned the drain pump downstairs?

It's might be drain pump. There's no water in the machine

That should say its not the drain pump

Either the drain pump is blocked or the motor is out of order so that it could not finish spinning. Can you send me a photo of your control panel and display? In the switched on state?
