The only element in WPML that shows any relation to indexation is the hreflang tags: https://wpml.org/documentation/support/adding-hreflang-wordpress/
I've checked a few of your pages, and it seems that in this regard WPML is outputting the correct hreflang tags.
What might cause this message that you are getting on the Google console is the following. In WPML -> Languages -> Browser language redirect, you have selected the option 'Redirect visitors based on browser language only if translations exist'. So this probably the reason that Google interprets the translations as duplicated content. And therefore you are getting the message: Duplicate, submitted URL not selected as canonical.
I would like to recommend you to disable this option by choosing ' Disable browser language redirect' and wait for Google to recrawl your site and then see if the problem disappears.
