Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Sorry but I do not know your particular machine code BUT JUST IN CASE I would suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters and many machines will not go to spin or release the door lock if there is water still left inside.
Here are my complete and general pre-typed (!) guidance notes for checking both the drain filter and the drain motor ;-0)

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 most are held in by a round cover/knob.

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!

Ricoh SP 111 with C8 Error:

The C8 is a fuser error. As a safety feature, the machine will be disabled (to prevent fire and what not.. )

The service manual says that SC542 is caused by a too low fuser temperature, after 5 readings.
Since the hot roller was 5°C below the reload
(operating) temperature the fusing thermistor is deformed or out of position or full of gunk (toner residue). Or there may be a piece of paper between the sensor and the hot roller.
The fusing lamp harness can also bee loose, broken or defective.
The fusing unit can be defective
After servicing the machine to solve the problem, the service
technician must execute a "Fuser SC Reset". Otherwise, the machine
will continue to issue this SC code and cannot be operated.

Executing Fuser SC Reset
1. After correcting the problem, open Smart Organizing Monitor.
2. Enter the service mode to display the Service Mode screen.
3. On the Service Mode screen, click [Fuser SC Reset]. This releases the fatal fusing error
which locks the machine.
4. Select "On" for Fuser SC Detect. This setting shuts down the machine if three successive
paper jams occur in the fusing unit.

Replaced drain pump and control board in cabrio washer, still does not work

Go back to the shop and ask them to explain why the diagnostic routine stops at C8 and reads error F72. No doubt they will blame it all on something else but you could get headed for a cure.
