Check drain hose first.

If you do not find any blockage, then you will need to access the pump, remove pump hose and look for blockage in there.

If there is no blockage at all, then either the water level switch, a faulty pump, a wiring problem, or a faulty timer board can be cause the machine not draining.

Check your drain on the washer. It is most likely clogged with debris.

SOURCE: water does not drain out from my washer

I have determined one of the reasons ( I feel this is the primary reason) why many BOSCH washing machines will not drain the water, Bosch uses the same drain pump in many of their 500-800 series washing machines, part number 436440. The drain pump is a electrical controlled magnetic driven pump. Simply a electrical current produces an electrical field which a magnet rotates, spinning the pump blades. I have determined that the internal seal on the pump part is allowing water to leak into the magnet area of the pump. This is causing corrosion, and water build up around the magnet, interfering with the magnetic field. How I came to this conclusion. After removing the end of the pump, and allowing the water to drain out, drying out the pump, the pump will work as advertised. But of course the pump cannot be used in this condition. A new pump is required. To determine this yourself, if the machine is not under warranty (good luck getting service). Unplug machine, remove back panel, unplug the drain pump, remove drain pump (separating the drain pump from the large plastic holder, there are three screws holding it to the housing). You can shake the pump, and if water comes out of it this is most likely the problem. Now hook the pump back up to its electrical feed, and place it on a rubber sheet. Set the machine to drain, if the pump attempts to spin then stops, or hums this is the problem.

SOURCE: washer water not draining

Your washer probably has a frozen pump pulley or a broken pump belt. To check the pulley you should remove the pump from the washer and try to rotate its pulley manually. If it doesn't turn freely (frozen or stiff) it should be replaced. In case of a broken pump's belt or belt looks quite worn, replace it. In any case, check the pump's pulley before you replacing the belt. Let me know if you need for further assistance. Good luck

SOURCE: WASHER WILL NOT DRAIN WATER KENMORE WASHER APPROX 9 YRS OLD

Does the tub spin without draining?

This JUST happened to me last night. Opened washer after a load and still full of water. Fifteen spins later, still about an inch of water in tub...
RepairClinic.com suggests checking the hoses from the washer tub to the drain pump for anything clogged in it. (WARNING!!! As soon as you remove one end of the hose ANY water remaining in the tub will come RUSHING out if not clogged. I was prepared for water, but not a rush of water.)
If there is no clog in that hose, remove the drain pump and check for something in it.
(My pump was burning up because some how a plastic stick got into it. I am waiting on the new pump now.)
If there is nothing in the first hose or the pump, see if anything is in the hose leading to the drain.

If not, they suggested something either purchasing a new pump as it may have quit working or something may have gotten stuck in between the tubs. This requires tearing apart and sometimes special tools.

My washer stopped draing the water


The pump may have stopped running, or a hose is pinched or blocked. Check the hose port at the outer tub bottom to see if a stray sock or something is blocking water drain.

Will not fill with water


Hi, First thing to check is the drain. Make sure your drain hose is higher then the water level and make sure, if you have it draing into a sump that the end of the hose is not laying in the water. I hope this helps. Please let me know,
Thanks

My washing machine fills to the correct level initially, then keeps draing and refilling. It used to work if I put the selector on one notch less than full, but now it does it on every size setting.


Make sure the drain pipe the washer drain hose goes into is at least 34 inches above the bottom of the washer. The drain hose must not be sealed to the drain pipe, or you may experience siphoning of water out of the washer.

My washer won't stop draing as it fills


Does the washer makes a full cycle properly and only problem is water's constinously draining ? If this is the phenomena, verify that the pipe discharged to the drain hose (the pipe that water going out from the machine)is at washer height up to one foot higher. Goog luck !
