How can I unlock my phone when my fingerprint scan sensor doesn't work and I have forgotten my Alt password?

My screen comes up with the keyboard for alternate password instead of my finger scan. I have forgotten my alternate password and don't want to lose all my data. How can I get the scan menu to pop back up or how can I bypass the alternate password without doing a hard reset. I haven't backed up my phone in months and hate to lose my data. HELP!!. I have tried: I have tried the Android device manager on my computer but wasn't sure if the "ENABLE LOCK AND ERASE DATA" would prompt me to create a new password or would simultaneously lock and erase. I'm not IT savvy at all.. I think it was caused by: My fingerprint scanner has died; loaded new apps (Power clean and a live wallpaper) and encrypted my SD card

Probably not, alternate passcode doesn't work since device updated last night (fingerprint scanner security requires Alt. passcode if the device is turned off, then on)?

My Samsung S6, out of the blue, stopped accepting my fingerprint and it is not accepting my password?

I am sure it is the correct password that I have been trying in the last 50 minutes. I have tried: Several variations of password, restarted the phone, now it is asking me for longer intervals before I can enter a password
