From what you've posted it would suggest there's a blockage preventing the machine from draining.
If it's not draining at all, check the drain hose where it connects to the house drains.
If it's onto a connection, take the hose off and check the hose and the connection for a blockage.
If ok, you'll need to manually remove the water from the machine.
Put a shallow dish in front of the filter/pump cover. (Bottom front of the machine)
(If there is a draining tube there, use that to drain the water out).
Slacken the cap a little to drain the water.
Tighten the cap to stop the water when you need to empty the container.
Once the machine is empty of water, take the cap off.
Clean out any debris in there.
Look into the pump housing and you'll see the pump impellor.
Ensure this can turn and isn't jammed by a small piece of debris.
Remove any laundry.
Put the machine on spin only.
Look into the open pump housing to see if the pump impellor is spinning.
If all ok, refit the cap and try the machine again.
Hope this helps
