ok ,that bottom lower panel pops off ,stick a screwdriver and push down there is a tab on either side, you will see a plastic nut , dont unscrew that ,take the small tube and bleed off all the water into a shallow pan ,itll take a while ,when all the water has stopped,then unscrew the big nut ,that goes right into the drain pump impeller ,look in there and there will most like be something hitting the impeller preventing it from draining, let me know
