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.

Factory-supplied equipment There is a packet of accessory parts supplied with your washer. Check that all the accessory parts supplied for your model are there. If any parts are missing contact your dealer immediately.
Inside the drum Water supply hose for cold water (blue marking). Water supply hose for hot water (red marking). Water drain hose. A bag which contains Covers to be placed over the holes for the transport bolts (after removing them). Clamp for drain hose. Wrench for levelling. Elbow for attaching the drain hose, e.g. to a sink. Depending on the type of connection, the following may also be required
Y-connector (can be obtained from any hardware store) in case there is only a cold water connection available.
Any residual moisture inside the drum is due to the final testing which every washing machine undergoes before leaving the factory.
On the rear of the appliance Power cord with plug.
C = cold water connection
H = hot water connection
Useful tools The following tools are helpful
Box cutter. Flat head screwdriver. Closed wrench (1/2"/13mm). Bubble level.
Dimensions a = 27.0 inches (686 mm) b = 30.7 inches (780 mm) c = 37.0 inches (940 mm) d = 16.0 inches (407 mm) Door opening angle 180 Approx. weight = 220 lbs (100 kg) Installation area
Never ground the washer to plastic plumbing lines, gas lines or hot water pipes.
Appliance stability is important, otherwise the washing machine could "walk" during the spin cycles.
The installation area must be solid and even. Soft floor surfaces, such as carpets or surfaces with foam backing, are not suitable.
If the washing machine is to be installed on a weak wood floor consider the following
0 If possible, place the washing machine in a corner of the room. 0 Screw a water resistant wooden board (at least 3/4" thick) to the floor. 0 Secure the feet of the washing machine with holding brackets. Order the holding brackets (set) from Siemens Customer Service (WMZ 2200).
Pedestal Mounting If mounting the washer on the Siemens pedestal (accessory no. WZ20395) follow the instructions supplied with the pedestal.
if Install pedestal prior to removing transport bolts.
Closet If installing the washer in a closet, observe the minimum distances according to the following table
Minimum Installation Clearances Closet Sides 1/4" (6 mm) Top 12" (305 mm) Rear 2,5" (64 mm) Front 1/4" (6 mm) Ventilation Top 48 sq. in (310 sq. cm), Bottom 24 sq. in (155 sq. cm)
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.
If anyhow the drain pump is blocked the spinning will be blocked. Check for a forrign object in the drain pump. If you can feel/hear it buzz (very quietly) while it should be pumping out it might be jammed up with something. That however is kind of rare with the angled tub the Neptune uses. Are you sure the machine is actually not pumping out, or is it possible its just turning off in the rinses? Reason I'm asking is the control will shut the machine down if its taking too long to fill up. Many times it will fill fine for the wash fill, but because the rinse takes twice the ammount of water it activates the system and shuts down while its half way filled. Look for a slow cold water fill for that problem.
Is the door locking in the spin? One very common problem on the older 3000 and 4000 series machines is the R11 resistor on the machine control board bruning out leaving the door lock inoperative. If the door won't lock, it won't spin. I do believe, however, the machine will still pump out. But many times what happens is the pump removes all the standing water, but without spinning everything in the tub stays soaked. The saturated clothing drains the water out and then leaves a few inches in the bottom of the tub.
If you have the newer style Neptune (with the control panel on the front of the machine) only the top paragraph applies. Thank you Sir, Have a nice day.
It sounds like the drain tube is partly clogged.
If you have a shop-vac you could try that. Try to set dishwasher back on discharge,see if water gose out the second time. if it still dont go out it is clogged. goodluck
Mine will do this if clothes are left in it for a long period of time. The pump will not drain all water out because the will dry out the seals if they do. Your wet clothes dripped in the tub raising the water level to the bottom of the drum and that is why you have wet clothes. Remove clothes as soon as they are done, use cycle signal to avoid this.
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
Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean. There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it (4 to 6 inches maximum). Snaking out your standpipe would be good too.
