Just had to remove a huge clog in the pump (never wash loose weave rugs!). Got it all back together, plugged it back in, pushed the SELECT and OPTIONS buttom simultaneously for 5 seconds to reset. The lights came on, hit START and LED flashes LOC, PAU and the door won't lock. Any ideas?

You may need to do more than just a filter cleaning. Your sump and hoses are all probably clogged too. Looks like you will have to take the washer apart and give it a good flush out. WM2277 service manual
Lets see: F21 Long drain Possible cause: Clogged filter, clogged/failed pump Remove the bottom panel go for the pump cleanout, get the googus out. Tech sheet is located behind the white box to the left which is the motor control unit (MCU). The tech sheet is an excellent tool which gives directions on diagnosing those pesky fault code. LOL
The water inside the tub will drain out when the pump filter is removed from the pump housing and flood the base of the washer. If not, the tub drain hose is clogged preventing the water to drain into the pump housing then out.
The door is locked because the foam switch in the pressure switch is open due to the presence of water after the unsuccessful drain cycle.
Disconnect the washer from the power outlet. Remove the three screws holding the lower front access panel to the cabinet and pull the panel down to access the pump housing.
Squeeze the clamp that hold the tub drain hose to the pump housing and slide it back. Prepare a pan to catch the water to prevent flooding. The tub drain hose maybe difficult to remove and you may need to insert something under it to break the seal and pull it off.
Remove the tub drain hose from the tub by squeezing the securing clamp and pulling it off the tub drain outlet. Clear the hose and the tub drain outlet from any debris.
Reinstall the tub drain hose and manually unlock the door before reinstalling the access panel. Reach and pull the release ring behind and up the right side of the front panel, then open the door.
you would have to pull the back off of the unit to gain access. The drain wont be clogged, it is most likely the pump. what probably happened was material from the rug got sucked into the pump and wrapped around the fan that pushes the water out of the washer.good luck

Hi There,You could bail out as much water as possible,Then If you lean the machine back against the wall,(with machine unplugged) you could remove the bottom plate (if fitted) and you will see the pump with a fan attached,Try turning the fan back & forth it may loosen the obstruction and you could then pump the water out before removing the pump for a service,A the front of the pump you will see a small plastic locking clip that needs to be held out while you turn the pump anti-clockwise for removel.Note treat everthing to be live on this machine if plugged in.(unplug machine before attemting any procedure) Best Regards.
Drain pump screen is clogged. If its makeing a bad grinding sound the pump will need to be replaced. Otherwise disasembly of the machine is required to access pump area to clean out screen. Dextrous people can probaly do this from the back or underneath unit. Its difficult and I don't recomend it to beginers or people who arn't handy. Easiest/prefered method: (This is the one I use.)
Method A units that have a bottom access panel. ie: front panel not one seamless peice.
-lean back against wall for easy access.
-remove two #2 square screws form access panel.
-Loosen clamp holding hose to tub. (Big black one around 2" in diameter.)
-remove and clean screen.
-reassemble machine and test pump operation.
Method B units the have seamless front panel.
-remove top. 3 screws @ back, slide top away from machine to remove.
-remove 2 screws holding console onto chasis.
-remove 3 screws @ and behind disp area.
-Remove console. ( tab may be holding to front panel @ middle bottom use putty knife to pry up.)
-remove 4 screws holding front pannel @ top to chasis.
-remove 2 screws holding frong pannel to chasis inside machine. Acess from top. (some models only.)
-remove bottom screws either 4 or 2 usally 4.
-remove two screws holding door lock to front panel
-remove spring from around bellow.
-remove bellow from front pannel
-remove front pannel. Tilts forward and lifts up off supports. (some models only.) or pannel ifs up and off from white tabs in side of chasis.
-unhook wires to door lock from front pannel. (plastic molex tab)
-may now access pump like in method A.
-access pump area
-remove drain hose to pump by looseing clamp and pulling off.
-remove hose to tub by losseing clamp and pulling off.
-remove power connection at back left of pump.
-unscrew two philips screws holding pump too base plate. (only one is really required.)
-clean pump screen or add one if not present.
-replug in power
-test pump operation
check to make sure all hoses are not clogged - our washer hose before the pump was clogged due to washing a rug that had deteriorating rubber backing - would not drain until I flushed out the hose that goes from the tub t the pump.
