HI -

We have a front loader and today when a wash was running it filled up and then just sat there and didn't roll around and never went to a spin cycle and the door was stuck shut.  I googled and found out how to unlock the door manually so we got the clothes out but there is a pool of water in the bottom still.  I tried power cycling and opening and closing the door a bunch just to see if the door is working and it is now.  The power comes on just fine, no error codes come on.  It now unlocks properly when we stop the cycle.

But it won't move.  I tried a spin only cycle and it just hummed. I tried a quick wash and it just sat there doing nothing and humming. 

I took the top off but don't really know what I'm looking at to know where to test anything as we lost the manual years ago.

Any ideas would be much appreciated.

I would check to see if you have a blockage in the drain pump
