ok you may have a clog in your drain system or drain pump. you need to take the front panel off and check the drain pump for obstructions, here are some diagrams. you need to remove the screws in the front marked #16 on diagram on both sides and then lift up on the door and remove it then pull part# XXXXX off , thats the front panel then you will see the pump. get some towels and remove the hoses to see if you have something stuck in the pump. thanks Bryan
