no it is not normal and there so be no reasonable excuse for bad vibrations and shaking on a new machine ,if the setting up instructions and leveling procedures were carried out.
at six months it should be still under warranty so have it fixed under the warranty

I think you have to check your water supply pressure, your filters. Your machine is taking time to drain and fill in water. Otherwise, you might have a problem with your heaters not warming up easily which means your heater controls have a problem or your heater is busted.

Clean the drain pump while the machine is off. There is a small door on the bottom front panel of the machine. Open this. You will see a jar cover like thing that you can unscrew. Unscrew this. A lot of water will gush out.... be careful..... Clean this and put the filter and cap back. If same thing happens again when you run the machine, you will have to replace the drain pump. Chances are, you are trying to run a 50 hertz machine on a 60 hertz line.

The most common place for a front load washer to leak is in the bellow. This is the rubber piece right inside the door. Pull the rubber piece back and check for tears or holes. If there are not any holes then there is probably a hole in the hose that runs from the tub to the pump. Sometimes stupid things like bra underwire and bobbi pins get in here and tear them

When the washer is control locked you get Loc on display. In your case the washer is probably stuck because there is water inside the drum.

Try first disconnecting power for two minutes by either tripping the circuit breaker or by disconnecting the power cord. After reconnecting run a short cycle (e.g. spin only).

If that does not work the water must be removed through the drain filter in front of the machine. In that case do the following:

Disconnect power.
Remove the trim panel at the base of the machine.
Locate the drain filter access at one side.
Remove drain filter cap.
Collect water using containers (have them ready, a lot of water will flow out).
Put back cap and trim and reapply power.

See the picture below showing how to remove the panel at the base of the machine:


Here the drain filter:


That is usually enough to solve the problem. If that does not work the machine must be partly disassembled to reach the inside of door lock pulling the emergency access cable. The emergency access can be reached removing the drain filter or removing the top panel. Power must be off and the operation should be done by a technician.

Disconnecting power and emptying the water through the drain filter is usually enough to unlock the door and to put the machine back at work.
