Have a whirlpool top loading washing machine and the water does not drain out during the cycle. emptied water in tub manually and then drained remaining water from drain pump in back. also checked all hoses under unit and all are clear and no kinks in them. i tried to get the agitator(?) off but having no luck except for the top part in which you throw the fabric softener in. i guess my question is do you think there is a block near the drain on the inside: but at the same time if there was wouldn't the water still not come out of the pump drain in the back? or could it be a belt or the pump itself. any help is appreciated. thanks

It sounds more like you have a drain problem that a machine problem. Try draining into the laundry tub and check that the tub drains quickly enough. If not, you have a plumbing problem...Good luck...Nomess
It is normal to have residual water in the drain lines and pump following a wash cycle. This is the low point of the drain cycle and gravity will ALWAYS cause some water to be there. As long as the water is not visible in the spin basket, you have nothing to worry about.
Some model washers also have a balance ring around the perimeter on top of the wash tub that is filled with fluid. This acts as a stabilizer to help keep the washer balanced during the spin cycle. If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this is helpful to you.
If the water leaks during drain and spin only:
A washer that leaks only during the drain/spin cycle often has a leak in the main drain hose. Inspect the entire hose and correct any problem you find. Alternatively, the steel or plastic outer tubs can rust, split, or be punctured. This may be most visible during large loads and high water levels. If this happens, you may have to replace the entire outer tub--but that may not be an economical repair to make. Consult a qualified appliance repair technician for further details.

be sure the drain hose is not lower than the wash tub this will caust the water to run out, 2nd be sure the drain hose is not pushed to far into the house stand pipe and the there is rome for air to go inbetween the drain hose and stand pipe eather of these will cause the machine to siphon mostly on rince cycle or on the 2nd and third loads you do. last your house drain could be starting to back up fill the washer with water and listen to it drain if you hear a gurggling sound in the house pipe you may need a plumber to cleanthis out for you.
ck to be sure drain hose is not more than 6-8 inches into standpipe ..standpipe is 30-36 inches to top from floor ..drain hose does not fit too tight in standpipe any of the above conditions may cause water to siphon out during wash or rinse resulting in not enough water in tub to carry lint away during drain
The drain hose needs to be lifted above the high fill level in washer.The easiest way to fix this is take the drain hose (if your drain hose starts from the bottom of machine and goes up)tie or strap it to the back of the washer so it cant sag or drop down and start syphoning the water.Remember the washer will drain out the water if the drain hose is lower than the amount of water in the tub.Thats why your making sure by tieing the drain hose to the highest point before it makes it way to the drain .
