Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Sorry, you do not say the make and model of your particular machine BUT I would gently 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 even go to spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside.
Here are my 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. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play!

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!

How do I repair F 26 on a Kenmore frontload washer


if you get the F26 error code, Press Stop, Open the door, press the black button just above the right middle of the machine opening, above the latch, hopefully, you will also hear a click, and then your machine will work normally.

What is an F3 26 error?


Appliance tech has a computer program or hand held device that has the answer. Newer machines are built to that spec. F3 shows where the main component of the error exists. #26 may not be a commonly occurring error. Go to Google and type in F3-26 or something similar. See what happens. Failing that contact a repair Company or your trusted Tech.
