You got leak in the base. Tip it forward and let the water out and retry if it occurs you need to find the leak start with the inlet hose.

OMG! I cant believe it - thank you so much! IT ACTUALLY WORKED!
I tipped it at a angle for a minute or two and some water came out on the floor but didnt fix it. I was about to push it back in and call the repairs when I thought I would give it another go. This time I held it at 45 degree angle forward for about 2 minutes then let it back down and turned it on and I was gobsmacked to see that it was perfect. Thank you so much. you saved me a much needed 100 euro call out.
