Below is how error codes are deciphered by the cycle lights and water level light. This should help diagnose the failure. I recommend to have service technician diagnose and repair your washer.
LONG DRAIN error code will cause the NORMAL, PERM PRESS, and HANDWASH cycle led lights to come on and the WATER LEVEL light to blink.
If the drain time exceeds 6 minutes, the wash cycle will stop. Push the START/OFF button to reset the mode, a drain task is executed and the previously selected cycle resumes.
Wash cycle stops. Press START/OFF button to enter Standby mode. Execute a Diagnostic Test to drain the water.
The pressure switch contact selected has opened during agitation task. The wash cycle stops and a Drain task is executed. Once the Drain is complete, the cycle stops.
Push the START/OFF button to reset the operation mode, a Fill task is executed and the previously selected cycle resumes.
If the Fill task exceeds 20 minutes, the wash cycle stops. Push the START/OFF button to reset the operation mode, a Fill task is executed according to previous Wash Temp selection and the previously selected cycle resumes.

Clean the drain by opening the door on the bottum left.
Use the yellow plastic thingy in the front of the soap drawer to do it.
You can open the machine door by pulling the yellow tag in the bottom door.
Drain the water through the filter, clean the filter and close.
Then unplug the machine and tilt it forward by about 1 foot until you see water coming out of the bottom (put towel on floor).
Plug back in and voila!
I do think that this machine is a major pain. No spin cycle and this kind of stuff to go through. Anyone want to buy mine?

Just had the same problem, after Much patience and persistence I found the blockage at the y piece that joins the pump to the outlet hose air trap towards the top of the machine LHS with the top and cover off.
It was clogged solid therefore no back pressure on the top little ball valve (between the air trap and the outlet) therefore no seal therefore norain therefore a drain-fault that persists regardless of a cleaned pump filter.

Sounds like you may have flooded the base of the unit and activated the float switch. Tip the unit forward slightly with a towel at the base and all the water will pour out. You should be right to run the unit after that and any other water inside will dry up. it won't rust as it is stainless steel inside.
