For the F&P machine.
Check the circuit board fuse. I had my machine do exactly the same thing. Just wouldn't power up at all, no lights, nothing.
The fuse is on the circuit board a small round red unit, with T1.6A250V written on the top.
Remove the 2 screws securing the control panel. Inside there is a grey plastic box. This houses your circuit board. You will need to have a multi meter and a soldering iron to replace this component.

It won't spin until all the water is drained out. The drain pump may be blocked or faulty. Fix the drain pump fault first then deal with the filling issue. They will not be related.

It has put itself into the display mode (used in shop displays) Try turning power off and unplug from the wall outlet for a couple of minutes. Plug back in and see if it has come back to normal. If not then either the display board or the main board will need to be replaced. Get a service tech out to check which one is faulty.

have you checked the fuse in the plug? try replacing it, or plugging into another wall socket, also check the actual socket it is plugged into works by plugging something else into it. If none of the above works then looks like you have a problem... first check would be to turn off the power at the wall and check the whole power cable from start to end looking for any splits or possible kinks or areas where a mouse or rat could have chewed it perhaps...
