Some towels swelled preventing the machine from spinning. Now

Some towels swelled preventing the machine from spinning. Now the machine is stuck, and it won't even drain the water so that I can open the door and remove some of the clothes. It is an Ariston AVXL88.
Thanks for using this service. Please be logged in to rate my assistance when we are done. Rating 3-5 is good, but 1-2 is bad so talk with me first.

Likely something is jammed or blocking the pump from pump out the water. Then the unit will never go into spin. Watch this video to get at the pump filter and check to see if anything is jammed up in. Clear it out and give it a try again.
