If the water proof system is activated then whats happened is water has leaked into the base of the washer and this has activated the flood switch in there.

What you need to do is pull the washer out and lean it 45 degrees backwards and this will allow the water in the base to drain out so you may need a towel for that part.

Once the water is out the flood switch will reset itself and this will clear the water proof sign and it will be back to normal from there.

So try that and see how it goes from there and let me know.
