Plug off the wall. Open up behind, you will find a thin tube, maybe tranparent or black coming down from the control panel to the exit area (pump area) of your machine. Carefully disconnet this from above and blow into it, it should be free, if not clear it, if kinked or broken replace.
If this does not work, its your solenoid valve at the entrance point of your machine, top right, where the water is received. Just change this. If all works fine rate me please.

Go back into the machine and check for a disconnected wire cause by cleaning out the filter. Oh and did you remember to turn the water faucet back to the on position? It helps to plug the machine in to the A/C outlet, too. Keep an eye attuned to a safety switch on the access panel as well. It may have an alignment or broken plastic fastening/ mounting design.
First: make rapid reading of alarms
How: the appliance is in normal operating mode (e.g. while the washing programme is in operation) than:
Press START/PAUSE and any one of the option buttons
simultaneously for at least two seconds: the LEDs first switch off,
and then display the flashing sequence corresponding to the
The alarm is displayed by a repeated flashing sequence of the two LEDs: 1. END OF CYCLE indicator = indicates the first digit of the
alarm code (family)
2. START/PAUSE ? indicates the second digit of the alarm
code (number within the family).
After reading alarm code look down=

have you checked the filter behind the flap on the front of the machine, this could be blocked. if the machine is full of water though you will have to manually drain it by putting the grey outlet hose into a bucket or a washing up bowl. you will also need one or two towels to place on the floor because there wil still be a bit of water left in the ipes even though the drum is empty.
