You have to be sure the tub drain can handle the volume of water from a full load without overflowing and the drain is not likely to get clogged

Fills with water and does not drain


It won't drain If your washer won't drain, check these: It spins, but doesn't pumpIf your washer spins but doesn't pump the water out, the drain line is probably clogged. In many washers, a small sock or other piece of clothing can get between the clothes tub and the outer tub that holds the water. If the clothing gets between the tubs, it may then get into the drain hose that's attached to the pump--or even into the pump itself. If it's in the pump, you need to remove the hoses from the pump and pull the item out. To remove the sock from the outer tub port, open the washer's main access panel and remove the large-diameter rubber hose that connects the pump to the bottom of the outer tub. Then, using needle-nose pliers, try to grab and remove the clothing through the port.. It doesn't spin or pumpIf your washer doesn't spin or pump water out but the motor is running, your washer probably has a frozen pump pulley. If so, you need to replace the pump. To check the pulley, remove the pump from the washer and try to rotate the pulley manually. If it doesn't turn freely--if it's frozen or stiff--replace it.It pumps, but the water returnsIf the water that pumps out of the machine goes back into the machine after the spin cycle, your washer may be siphoning the water from a laundry tub that has a slow drain, back into the washer. The usual remedy for this is to improve the draining of the laundry tub. (Is something stuck in the drain?) Also, check for these problems:If the drain hose reaches more than about 4 inches into the laundry tub, cut off the excess.

Tip

The washing machine is draining but the water is coming back inside?


Check out this possibilities for water not draining in the washing machine: This problem relates to the hose connected to drain pump. The drain hose should not be in laundry tub more then 4 to 5 inches. Measure it and if it’s more then 4 to 5 inch then cut the excess hose in the tub. If your drain hose is lower than the washer's cabinet, install an air gap/siphon break assembly. But if the drain pump hoses are ok checked then this problem relates to slow drain of water from laundry tub. You can solve this issue by cleaning the drain pump blockages and dirt build up this will make the flow of water proper in the draining of the laundry tub.
This will help.thanks.

Started normal cycle then gets to drain and spin clothes are still wet


Hello there:
Spin cycle 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, a worn clutch , 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. Siphoning 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. then retry ok

The twin tub connected to the washing machine doesn't drain.


The laundry tub does not have adequate drain size to handle discharge from the washing machine. In addition, the kitchen and laundry area piping may not be correctly vented.

After the clothes have spun dry, a small amount of water accumlates in the tub; generally 1/4 inch or so. Why BTW, I'm not sure that I've selected the correct model. Our washer is about 3 years old.


If draining into laundry tub, chances are water is siphoned back into washer due to laundry tub slow drain.
Very long drain hoses( such as 10+ feet) will also cause this.

Water doesn't drain when spinning in rinse cycle.


Check these:
  • If your washer spins but does not pump the water out, the drain line is probably clogged. In many washers a small sock or other piece of clothing can get between the clothes tub and the outer tub that holds the water. If the clothing gets between the tubs, it may then get into the drain hose that is attached to the pump or even into the pump itself. It it's in the pump, you need to remove the hoses from the pump and pull the item out.
  • To remove the item from the outer tub port, open the washer's main access panel and remove the large diameter rubber hose that connects the pump to the bottom of the outer tub. Using a needle-nose pliers, try to grab and remove the stuck item through the port.
  • Check your washer for a frozen pulley. Remove the pump from the washer and try to rotate the pulley manually. If it doesn't turn freely, it's frozen, replace it.
  • If the water that pumps out of the machine goes back after the spin cycle, your washer is siphoning the water from a laundry tub that has a slow drain back into the washer. The usual remedy for this is to improve the draining of the laundry tub.
  • Also check for these problems:
  1. If the drain hose reaches more than 4 inches into the laundry tub, cut the excess.
  2. If your drain hose is lower than the washer's cabinet, install an air gap/siphon break assembly.
