Re: washer will not drain
Sounds like a blocked or inoperative waste pump. Remove the rubber hose attached to the waste pump and check for blockages such as a small pice of clothing like a sock or similar. Also check the waste pump spins freely.

The water is probably siphoning out of the tub. Your drain pipe is either too low or the drain hose is down too far into the pipe. Take the drain hose out of the pipe and lift it high. I'll bet your problem goes away
HI, Check back of washer with a flashlight for a bent or clogged drain hose. Do not move washer to check it. When you move it , it will straighten out and you will never know if it was bent Also while it is pumping , pick up end of drain hose at drain and observe the volume of water being pumped. If no water then the Pump may need replaced Thank you for using fixya Leo Ponder Please rate me if this helped
There could be a couple of different reasons why this is happening
first look at this Water-inlet valve
valves eventually fail. One problem that may develop with a water-inlet
valve is that it can no longer completely shut off when the electricity
is turned off to it. Then, the valve may leak and drip water into the
clothes tub--you may notice that your washer has water in it when you
haven't used it for a few days. To fix this, replace the valveNextSiphoningIf
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.and last is the drain pump it'self if it is wearing out like they will eventually do it is time to replace the drain pump ok so please look into each of these and keep me posted on what you have found and i will send you some more information if neededBest regards mike
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
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:
If the drain hose reaches more than 4 inches into the laundry tub, cut the excess.
If your drain hose is lower than the washer's cabinet, install an air gap/siphon break assembly.
my old hitachi washing machine PAF-760P was not used for a long time.I started yesterday, it started washing but when the knob rotates and goes to drain the water,it only clicks and does not drain the water. What must be wrong with it. can you help please.

You already have replaced the pump motor and still no operation, so check the power voltage to the pump during the drain cycle. Verify the problem is not pump related as much as power to the pump being the problem.
The washer puts out a lot of water when spinning/ draining, sounds like the house drains are not of sufficient size or possibly blocked causing water to backup into your tub, check house drains for blockage or install seperate drain for washer into main drain that your tub goes into.
You,ve done a good job the first time the pump fail MikieM. You can do it again. We sometimes forget to empty our pocket. Some small metal things could have gotten into the pump...could be other hard foreign object. Good luck.
the water is draining back to the ocean. The drain hose was not emptied properly from its last use. Put the machine in spin cycle (about 5 minutes) only to spin out the water from the outer tub completely and retry washer. If still problem, then visual check drain hose that it still has a "rising" section higher in altitude than the water level of inner tub (when working properly) before it makes a U-turn downward to send back to the ocean. You can also test the drain hose by putting machine in fill mode and crimping off the hose (fold hose over) to simulate a good drain hose. At this test, you should not "feel" water running through the hose if successfully crimped.
