Water has leaked into the base of the machine, under the tub, and actuated the flood cycle. That water will need to be dried up to restore function. You will need to access the area under the wash tub and likely address why it initially leaked. These units are not easy to service, just FYI. Let me know if you would like more information about getting to the area under the tub.
