turn the dial to off. Press and hold the start pause and the nearest option button. While you're holding them down, turn the dial one notch clockwise.
The machine will beep or flash, let go of the buttons. Release the buttons, then turn the dial slowly, stopping at each click until you get to "off". Now, turn to any setting, then turn to off.
Now, try the machine. If it works, I'm very happy. If not, perhaps someone else can help.

I've found that a similar thing on my Zanussi appears when the filter on the output is clogged. Removing muck and hair from the filter usually solves the problem

I'm fairly sure that this is a warning that the filter is blocked. There is a filter in the bottom right hand corner of the machine.
Now, as stated by the other user here, your problem is that you have a machine full of water and if you remove the filter, you are going to get a very wet floor. The trick here is:
Turn the power off at the mains and remove the plug from the wall. Wait ten minutes. This SHOULD power off the safety feature that allows you to open the front load door.
Presuming it does, pull the machine out if it is under a work surface and taking great care because of the weight, tip tha machine backwards until the water level is below the door (Having a chair or a box to rest the back of the machine on is a good plan here, so you don't tip it beyond about 45% and have it fall on ots back.
If the door will open, then you can now rescue any clothes and bale out the water with a cup. Once you gave got to all the water you can (Memember there is still more waqter out of sight and in the pipe going to the filter!) You can now tip the machine back a little further until the water is clear of the filter in the botton right of the machine.
NOW, you can take the filter out, remove the fliff, couns, old sock and other debris clogging it and screw it back in place. TIp the machine back on to its feet and put it back.
Now, make a note in your diary to check the filter ever 6-8 weeks or so. Once you have done a few check and cleans, you will figure out how oftem you need to clean the filter, which depends on what you wash and how much you wash it.

E20 is a drainage error. If there is water in the drum make sure the discharge pipe at the back of the machine is not kinked or blocked. You should also check the pump filter is not clogged - this is behind the front panel underneath the drum at the front of the machine.
E41 = Control board thinks the door switch is open. This points towards a faulty door switch on the machine.
Hope this helps. Please remember to rate my answer. Many thanks.
