Question about Washing Machines
When draining water doesnt want to run out i have to slap it at the back before the water drains.please help
Could be problems with the waste pump which could be at the bottom of the machine behind a flap. The fact that if you give the machine a thump and it starts working, could indicate it has a loose wire which can be extremely dangerous as it could short out to the washing machine casing. Or the motor has simply got dirt around the comm. (internals on the motor). If you have been spinning unevenly balanced clothes and the machine has had a bit of a jump around, then it is likely to be a wire. I have repaired washing machines which have had this very problem where the drum has been bang bang bang in spin mode and actually rubbed right through to bare wire on badly placed wires which were not harnessed out of dangers way. Alway disconnect from mains first before looking....electricity kills, especially I the presence of water. Good luck

You probably have the drain hose too far down the standpipe and it is siphoning out. Check that first. If that doesn't work, look up Catriver, sounds like that cat knows his stuff. Tenbears.

If it's really as you described, when draining at the same time filling up, then it's a problem in the main control board. You'll need some electronics knowledge to repair it, or just replace the main board

No you just need to get the drain hose up higher...the water is siphoning out and is either caused by the end of the drain hose still in water and not having an air gap or the hose is not going up higher then the top of your washer...
Lifting the hose up should give you an air gap and get the hose high enough to stop the siphoning...
