Re: Whirlpool Washer does not drain and tub does not seem...
Sounds like a broke drive coupling. lean the machine back look under the front you will see the motor in the center with a pump mounted on the front behind the motor is the gear case between the motor and gearcase is the drive coupling. To replace it disconect the power, remove the two clamps holding the pump on,remove the pump disconect the wiring harness to the motor now on the front of the motor there are two screws one on top and one one the bottom one the front of the motor with a 1/4 scocket romove the two screws. with a flat head screwdriver release the top clamp on the motor now the motor should tilt down and you can lift it off the coupling is on the short shaft of the motor and on the shaft of the gear case remove both may need to use a flathead screwdriver to get the one off the gearcase replace using a 1/2 deep well scocket and short extention and hammer tap them both on lightly but be sure the go all the way on put the rubber part of the coupling on the gearcase side and turn one of the fingers to 12:00 position turn one on the motor to 6:00 put motor back on the gear case bracket and put the top clamp on frist put the bottom clap back on insert screws put pump back on put pump clamps back on note you will have to turn the ootor to line the shaft up to go into the pump reconect the motor wiring harness plug machine in and test

It sounds more like you have a drain problem that a machine problem. Try draining into the laundry tub and check that the tub drains quickly enough. If not, you have a plumbing problem...Good luck...Nomess
Motor coupler Spin cycle Siphoning Water-inlet valve Motor coupler
To test the motor coupler, re-start the washer in its spin cycle. Let the machine run for a minute, and then open the lid and notice whether the tub is spinning:
If it's spinning when you lift the lid, the coupler is fine.
If it isn't spinning--and your machine was produced by Whirlpool®--you may have a broken coupler. Many Whirlpool-made washers use a small, relatively inexpensive device called a motor coupling. This plastic-and-rubber component is mounted to the shaft of the motor on one side, and to the transmission on the other. Over time, the coupler wears out and fails. When that happens, you need to replace it completely.
If the washer doesn't reach its proper spin speed, the clothes may be too wet at the end of a cycle. Check to be sure the load is properly balanced and run a spin cycle again. If the clothes are still wet, you may have a worn or loose belt (Maytag®), a worn clutch (GE®/Hotpoint®), or a worn motor pulley or tub bearing. Replace the applicable component.
Alternatively, there could be clothes caught between the inner and outer tubs. Read the "It spins but won't pump" section of the "It won't drain" section. Also, there could be other things that cause friction on the drive train. Seek the assistance of a qualified appliance repair technician.
If the water that pumps from the machine goes right back into the machine after the spin cycle, it may be because your washer is siphoning the water from a laundry tub with a slow drain, back into the washer. Try to improve the draining of the laundry tub. (Is there something stuck in the drain?) Also, be sure the drain hose doesn't reach more than about 4 inches into the laundry tub. If it does, cut off the excess.
Water-inlet valves eventually fail. One problem that may develop with a water-inlet valve is that it can no longer completely shut off when the electricity is turned off to it. Then, the valve may leak and drip water into the clothes tub--you may notice that your washer has water in it when you haven't used it for a few days. To fix this, replace the valve.
It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer.
It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. See There's no cold water.
Without being there to physically see what it's doing or hear the sound, I would say there's 3 possibilities. 1) drive block is slipping on basket drive / brake assembly. 2) basket drive assembly is worn where drive block seats onto it. 3) clutch slipping.
