Question about Washing Machines
I also think that it's not rinsing as the clothes have been in there for 2 days as I keep replaying the washing cycle in the (now) vain hope that it'll work. There are too many suds that would imply it's not rinsing either. I've found a drain outlet at the bottom left hand side of the machine - but the only way that I'd be able to soak up the water is putting every towel I possess on the floor....is this my only option??
To get the water out, lay the emptying hose down at floor level into a bowl, tip the water down the sink a bit at a time, then check for a blockage in the outlet filter, or the pump

I think I have the same type of washing machine as you do. Wash is when all the clothes get agitated or mixed with soap and water (ever look in there when its washing? the water can get pretty gross looking!) So in my washer, the rinse cycle is when all that gross water is drained, and the washer spins while spraying clean water over the clothes to get rid of the dirty water and soap. I think mine does this 5 or 6 times in the cycle. Next is the spin cycle, which is when the washer spins REALLY fast to **** as much water out of the clothes as possible, so that the clothes aren't sopping wet when you put them in the dryer.
It sounds like your mom has a newer washing machine, probably a front load one, and they do seem to keep using clean water, instead of just agitating the clothes in dirty water.
