You have an overflow condition, this can be caused by several things, llok at the tech sheet for this problem..

Customer: replied 4 years ago.

There is no water in the machine. I have been moving it all day. It still has door lock and add garment lights on.

Is the drain pump coming on when you do this?

Expert:  Chas replied 4 years ago.
Can you get the door opened?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

No, the door is locked and the add garment light is on, once I plug in the machine and turn the power on to start a wash. The machine remains locked, and I can push the power button 100 times, and it won't shut off.

Expert:  Chas replied 4 years ago.
Is there still clothes in the machine?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

No. I already took those out prior to pushing the 3 buttons on the machine to get the error code. I had to pull on the teardrop on the inside to release the door.

Expert:  Chas replied 4 years ago.
