SOURCE: water keeps draining
You may be experiencing what is known as "siphoning". If you have your drain hose shoved too far down in the drain standpipe, or if you have the top of the standpipe opening sealed off, sometimes it creates a vacuum and will cause the washer to drain constantly drain. You need an air gap in order to prevent this. Double check your drain hoses for the following:
1. Make sure the hose is only placed in the standpipe about 3 to 4 inches. If it is sitting so far down in the pipe that it is resting in the trap where all the water is it will siphon.
2. Check the opening around the top of the standpipe where the hose rests. Makes sure there is still an air gap around the hose. That is, make sure the hose isn't seated so tight that it seals off the standpipe completely. This will cause siphoning.
3. Make sure you haven't placed anything around the standpipe opening. Many people will wrap old towels or wash cloths around the opening in order to prevent overflows and odors coming back up through the pipe. In doing so, they often inadvertently seal off the standpipe and cause a siphoning problem.
Last of all, the standpipe should be about 36 inches from the floor. If your drain line is sitting too low it can also cause siphoning issues.
I know I'm keying in on this drain line issue quite a bit here. There are some other things that can cause water levels in a washer to drop, but you mentioned nothing about any leaks and this is the most common problem. You will know for sure if you pull the drain hose out of the standpipe and suddenly hear a sucking noise. This is air being reintroduced through the drain line. I hope you find this information helpful.

Either the elements have blown, or it could be a device called a thermal overload which has popped. (There may also be a loose wire which connects to the heating elements). Have your drier checked out by a good handyman or technician.
