Make sure that the water is turned on. Carefully under the main control panel if you lift it up when the water should be on you should hear the water inlet solenoids clicking on then off, if not make sure that the wires are connected UNPLUG FIRST BEFORE TOUCHING ANY WIRES

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Judging from your description 2 problems- filter and lid!
Filter
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 and many machines will not even go to rinse or spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside.
Here are my complete and generic guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)
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.

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!)
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.

Lid
There is likely to be a problem with either the lid/door solenoid/lock or the 'lid/door closed' sensor requiring a service engineer's attention I suggest ;-0(

If these have assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

Washer will not start. Start button flashes but lid is not locked


If the lid lock light is flashing, that is an error. If the lid doesnt lock it won't do anything. There is a diagnostic test that you could do to prove it if you are good with electronics and ohm meters. Most tecks would probably tell you to replace the lid lock assembly. That is probably the cheapest part. The only problem is that without the diagnostis test it could be somthing else. But first check to see that the wire that comes from the lock is securely plugged into the control board.

It is new and it will not even start the drum rotating in the sensing (initial) start up


The drum doesn't rotate in the sensing stage. This is when the washer is determining how much water will be needed based on the weight of the items in the washer. Once it has been determined, the water will go into the machine and THEN the agitation will begin.That's why the lid locks during the sensing stage: so we don't keep adding another item or two because that will throw off the calculations the machine is making when it's "sensing." My Cabrio is less than a year old and I still want to open the lid to see if there's enough water in there. But that's no longer necessary with all this new technology.
I hope this helps you out! If it does, please come back to Fixya and rate my advice. Thanks!
