Sounds like the front door switch has come out of place, or the actuator is out of place. If you can take the front cover off to get to this switch, you should be able to get it back into place pretty easily. Hope this helps, chad

I had the same problem about a year ago, I replaced the door switch but didn't fix it, I found the brushes in the motor has worn out - Replaced the brushes and fixed the problem.

Fault code 3 = Drain failure or not detecting empty drum.
Check pressure switch, blocked drain, drain pump.
See link below for service manual.

Hi, the problem is the pump is blocked. What you have to do if your a bit handy is to turn off the power from the plug socket, pull out the machine and take off the back panel, then when you look iside you will see a big black rubber fitting at the base of the mashine attached to a white plastic pump and inturn to your outlet pipe. you have to disconnect the big black one from the top, there is a metal clip which you have to unscrew and it will fall down. inside this is a plastic ball and something which looks like a shuttle ****, take this out and clean everything, you will be suprised what is in there (especially if you have kids) lastly put everything back together and put on a quick rinse cycle. all is fixed! OR Call an repair man, who may try to con you into new parts when they are not neccesary.
