Check the drain pump itself. But at the same time if your clothes are still sudsy it sounds like it is not going through all the cycles. Almost like it is skipping a cycle

Q - My washer keeps moving around n the floor, is there any simple things that I can check ?
A - Yes, there is...The legs on the washer are adjustable, the rear legs are often ( not always ) self adjusting, make sure the legs are not stuck and that they can move freely. But the front legs can screw in and out to move the washer depending on the floor the washer is sitting on. Make sure the washer is as low to the floor as possible. When the legs are screwed out too far the washer becomes wobbly. Often on the metal style legs there are lock nuts that can be tightened to secure the legs so they don't move on you. washers where really meant to sit on a cement floor, if your washer is on a wooden floor look carefully at the strength of the floor. If the floor is moving up and down when the washer is running, the floor may not be strong enough to support the washers weight. Most main floor laundry rooms floors are nailed down, the sub-floor is more secure if the sub-floor has been screwed down. Sometimes extra support may have to be added under the flooring to add some strength

Place the level on the top of the washing machine to see if it is level. Make sure you test it side to side and front to back.
Pull the washing machine away from any walls if you have to make an adjustment to the legs.
Lift the washer and place the wood block underneath the washer. Place the block near the leg that needs to be adjusted, but don't let it obstruct the leg.
Loosen the nut that secures the leg with the wrench.
Raise the height of the leg by twisting it to the left, or lower the height by twisting it to the right.
Remove the block of wood from under the washer and recheck the machine with the level.
Raise or lower the leg if additional adjustments are needed.
Tighten the nut on the leg with the wrench when the machine is level.
Repeat the process for each leg that needs to be adjusted.
Move the washer back into position and check with the level again to make sure the washer remains stable to finish leveling the machine.
