Never run into this myself. Why are you holding down the start and pause/cancel buttons together?

Does it fill with water?

Did you find the tech sheet inside?

You must have the washer in the test mode. Unplug the washer for 8 seconds and reconnect it then retry.

I think E6E means Error-6E
6 = belongs to the heater fault family, and may include problems caused by faulty heater thermofuse or water temperature sensor
I'm not sure about the last "E", sorry
Hope this could help
