Question about Whirlpool Washing Machines
The washer was stopping its cycle on OL alarm, my drain pump seems ok, bearings also seem ok, I cleaned the drain filter, I am ready to put the machine together, but all that water remained in the drum is questionable.

Try using a wet/dry shop vac and see if you can pull water through the drain hose in the back. If you can, duct tape the vacuum nozzle to the drain hose to make a good seal. With the vacuum on, watch the drain hose under the tub. If it collapses, you have a clog somewhere. It may be easier to remove the hoses from the pump, first to see if there is anything stuck in the impeller. It doesn't take much to restrict water flow. If you need to remove the hose from the bottom of the tub, try to get as much water out using the method I mentioned. It may be slow, but as long as it can pull water, try to drain. This will save you from a big mess later. If there is a clog in the hose, all that water will gush out with the hose disconnected. You may want to have a few towels handy. Now...in some models there is a plastic ball valve in the drain hose connected under the tub. This needs to stay there, but may also be jammed with crud. Sand and dirt is notorious for clogging at this point in the drain system. This hose should come off with a simple clamp tightened with a screw. If you go through all the effort and find the lines clear, you may have a failed drain pump.

SOURCE: Washer will not drain properly.
The splashing you hear is a liquid thats in the balance ring. This is located at the front edge of the inner tub that you spun by hand. It helps balance the loads. This is normal. The smell is a problem inherent to front loaders. About once a month run hot water wash with a cup of bleach in it, no clothes. Best bet is to leave door open to allow air to dry interior. I removed bulb in mine.

SOURCE: Our Whirlpool washer won't drain
this machine has the pump directly atached to the pump assy, so if the motor is runnning your pump will drain water. more likely is that when you put the unit back together perhaps you didnt plug the lid switch assembly bak in. if there is no lid switch detected the unit will not drain or spin and when it gets to that mode it will simply stall out. no noise or anything. will fill, agitate but not spin and/or drain/ check the lid switch!

I read this in some guys blog, he was having the same problem with his Duet and said that adding water to each cycle solved the problem without having to use any chemicals. He's working on an easier way to do this, his solution was quite complex but he did post a solution that someone sent him that seemed to work and may work for you. I'll attach the "URL" for his site. Hope this will help.
