ok, you need to clean the pump trap first of all, remove the front acces panel under the door # XXXXX on this diagram, then you will see the drain pump, remove part # XXXXX on this daigram, it unscrews counter clockwise and pulls out, get some towels ready there will be water. open it slowly and then clean the trap, put it back in and try the machjine again, let me know if it restarts and runs.
