Re: Drainage system for front load washer
Take bottom off machine; pump is right there. You can investigate from there. I cannot see your reply due to some tech issue w/ the site, so it may be a day or so before I can reply again. Please leave feedback for me if appropriate. Thanks

Hi. I''m assuming you are referring to a WD1000.
To initiate the drain cycle: Rotate far right knob CLOCKWISE to Position 4. It may take 30-45 seconds to recognize the knob's new position, but then it will begin an 11 minute Slow Tumble/Pump Out cycle. During this cycle you'll see the internal drum slowly rotate CW for 60 seconds, pause, then rotate CCW for 5 secs - then repeat. All this time the pump will run and you'll hear water running down the drain. When you hear no more water you can rotate same knob to "straight up", and stop the machine. To turn power off, press the rightmost button.

After running this check list, plug back up and try a complete cycle using cold water and no detergent. Sudding can mimic a drainage issue as well. make sure you are using the correct HE detergent to prevent over sudding.
You said, The pipe in the back is not clogged, it is wide open. When we removed
the cover for the pump in the front and open the valve, the water
obviously drains out. However, when you put it back together and try to
run it, it will go through a cycle and when it gets near the end of the
cycle that when the message appears drainage blocked and won't drain.
The electronic type washers , can be unplugged and after 5 minutes restarted and the system is then rebooted. This resets the system and clears the codes !
If the drain is not blocked then you have a faulty sensor or a bad pump
the humming noise could be from two sources and it is worth while doing a few simple checks
first the drain pump is jammed with a foreign object. check nothing caught in the impellor
water not available - check taps turned on. also turn water off, undo fill hoses, put in a bucket and turn water back on
try on drain or spin programs to check water drainage as well
