To Manually unlock the door lock system:

Yes the transmission can seize. Check to see if the water inlet is blocked. Shut water off and discount hot and cold water inlets to see if they are blocked. If so then further invesigation is needed to see if something jammed inside the machine like a penny, diamond ring, earring, loose change or something small stopping the spin cycle. If this is the case you might have blown the circuit within the machine. Hope this is helpful

most home appliances have many ELECTRONIC components......these components are very sensitive to electrical irregularities that enter your home electrical system......these irregularities can cause some components to freeze up.......pull the plug and leave your westinghouse 708 unplugged for several minutes.......plug it in again and it will reset all of these control components........hope that helps!

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Sorry but I do not know your particular machine BUT it could stand for 'filter error'.
I would suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters. The motor is unable to drain all of the water in the allotted time.
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!) and held in by a round cover/knob.
REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT!
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. If it doesn't work then the motor is malfunctioning!
Hope the filter is the problem and good luck!
