I have the same E6 error code and violent movement when in spin. have tried to level and such with the same results. Always acts like it's majorly unbalanced

E2 code means it's not draining out the water properly
so look for a blockage at the pump
turn the power off to the machine
take the front bottom plastic cover off so you can access
the drain tube front right small plastic plug bout 13mm in size
get some towels and a shallow tray to catch the water
remove the small plug and drain the water ( takes age by the way )
once you've done that put the small plug back in
and then unscrew the black plastic ( they come in several colours )
pump access plug bout 50mm in size which is just to the left
of the drain tube ,, there may be a small amount of water left
in the pump but it won't be much
Once the pump access plug is removed look inside the hole
and see if you can see anything stuck in there most often
it's coins or other junk thats been left in pockets or very often
if you've kids it's going to be socks or other small clothing items
which have been sucked in to the pump
remove any blockages refit the pucp access plug
turn on the machine and put it thru a quick wash cycle
make sure it drains and spins out !!!! if not then repeat the above
procedure as you've got something else still stuck in there

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Try this- just in case!
Many machines will not even go to rinse or spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside.
I would gently suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor/pump lint tray/filter- so many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters.
Following are my complete and hopefully 'coverall' pre-typed guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)
REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT (alternatively use a wet vac as sensibly suggested by VinnyB1234!)
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!). These panels are either held on by (plasic) screws or will just pull off. Most filters are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play.
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. Using something suitable like a glove see if it is easy to briefly slow the motor down. If it is easy then the motor is malfunctioning.
If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!
