Normally if it will not run and says that either there is water in the flood basin underneath or the motor is stuck. See if the motor is stuck and try this method to get it free and make sure it is turning freely and then try it. If that is free make sure there is no water in the flood basin underneath, you will have to pull the unit out of the cabinet to check that.
