I have checked the the hose leading to the pump and nothing is obstructing it. Althought I found a rubber band stuck in the pump it still does not empty the water. When I do put the hose down, the water does gush out so there is no further obstruction. I noticed that there are 3 hoses leading to the filter, the one leading to the pump, one leading to the tank of the washer and a thin one leading from the top of the tank to the filter. Could these have any obstructions. Also, when I tried to test to see if it could empty out the water the pump was very very hot. Thank you for your help.

You will have to take the hoses off between the tub and pump, and the pump and weall drain. They are packed with rubber. Oh, don't forget to clean the inside of the pump too. Run clean water through all hoses and the pump before reinstalling and you should be fine. Don't wash rubber backed rugs in washers unless you go to the laundry mat. This should be put in the maintenance guide of your washer book, but I've yet to see it.
First empty the machine by lowering the hose at the rear to ground level into a container. Take off the white plastic cover on rear at bottom. You will see black rubber hose connected to barrel of machine in right hand corner. Undo the silver screw on the band securing the hose. (Biggest band). You can now pull the hose down to reveal a ball. Lift it out carefully and you will probably find an obstructions like a coins or clips. Do not take off the white hose clips.
After the filter comes the pump, disconnect. Slide pump to left and lift, it comes clear. Take off 2 black hoses only where connected to main machine. Pull off electrical connection. Pump and hoses lift out easily. 3 screws open the pump. Clean out any obstruction and reassemble. Refit all as you dismantled.
this worked for me and I made 25p for the trouble:

You can now pull the hose down to reveal a "table tennis like" ball. Lift it out carefully and you will probably find an obstruction like a coin or similar. I found a hairgrip but it was enough to stop the ball functioning. DO NOT TAKE OFF THE WHITE HOSE CLIPS

Further to my comments re clearing scrap from table tennis ball after code F4. Machine started ok but then F5 came up. Had to take the pump off and apart to reveal broken hairclip actually seized in pump. If you are handy at all this is simplicity itself. Slide pump to left and lift and it comes clear. Take off 2 black hoses only where connected to main machine. Pull off electrical connection. Pump and hoses lift out easily. 3 screws open the pump. Clean any obstruction and reassemble. A 30 minute operation.
Does the pump spins ?
Try to rotate pump's pulley manually. If it doesn't turn freely (frozen or stiff), check for foreign object inside the pump.
In case you will not find an object that prevent pump's spining, it should be replaced.
I have my washer connected to the kitchen sink. In order for it to fill I have to connect the hose to the faucet and turn it on, it is pain but that is the only way it will work for me. I hope this helps.
