I have an older washing machine that drains water for the most part.
It still leaves about 4-5 inches of water in the bottom of the machine, which when we get ready to empty the clothes and put them in the dryer we have to ring everything out by hand which takes even longer.
I have already checked the drain hose and it is clear. I have noticed though that if you put it on spin cycle, and then open the lid, it DOES NOT stop like it does on most machines. I know when you open it it is supposed to stop doing whatever it is doing, but this machine is NOT doing this.

Check out this possibilities for water not draining in the washing machine:
This problem relates to the
hose connected to drain pump. The drain hose should not be in laundry tub more
then 4 to 5 inches. Measure it and if it’s more then 4 to 5 inch then cut the
excess hose in the tub. If your drain hose is lower than the washer's cabinet,
install an air gap/siphon break assembly. But if the drain pump hoses are ok
checked then this problem relates to slow drain of water from laundry tub. You
can solve this issue by cleaning the drain pump blockages and dirt build up this
will make the flow of water proper in the draining of the laundry tub. This will help.thanks.
1. check the drain knob if operational or functional.
2. remove the water and check the drain inside of your washing machine if something block it or dirt, like hair, or other small particles and if positive clean or remove it.
3. check also the filter if has then clean it also.
4.check outlet solenoid valve if has, maybe its defective and this is subject for replacement.
5.check the hose pipe drain if possible plug out to the washing machine, check it if clean or dent.
sounds like a blocked drain hose or a faulty pump motor..If the machine can be drained by putting the drain hose lower than the water level then the hose is not blocked and it may be the pump...Make sure the hose leaves the machine from under the tub and not high on rear of washer. Obviously water won't flow uphill..If the pump has failed a new pump motor is much cheaper than buying a whole new pump....Nomess
i bassume the water is coming in after cycle finished. source can be two things.
water valve leaking - not probable on a new machine but to check, turn water off and see if water comes in.
if drain is plumbed into a spigot on the sink trap, when you empty the sink, some of the water will go down the drain hose. to cvure, take the drain hose up in a swan neck as high as possible
