Washing machine won’t drain - appliance or plumbing?

I found soap foam and water coming out of my LG front loader yesterday. Its in a tight location and I can’t move it myself. I googled and apparently it could be a pump failure in the machine or a clog in the line. There is water in the tub which won’t drain.

Who should I call, appliance repair or plumber? It’s about 10 years old, but has been very reliable. I’d buy a new one, but if it’s a plumbing issue, that won’t solve the problem. I do laundry almost every day and am almost panicked. Any ideas on what the most likely problem is? TIA.
