SOURCE: FUll of Bubbles and won't drain
That is the filter compartment that you accessed. I believe ( and you can verify ) that there is a short hose with a cap next to that filter that you can extend to control the drain off into a container or two. If you haven't cleaned the filter for a long time, there is a good chance that it is blocked up with junk that limits the system from draining properly. I had that problem myself. Also, these front loaders use HE detergent and Ihad been filling the detergent cup up to the mark but you because these use very little water during the wash cycle I was advised to use only a few drops... Yes drops.. and I have been and clothes come out just as clean. maybe even a bit less if you buy X2 or X3 HE detergent. Hope my bad experience with this helps you...

You will need to replace the drain pump motor. The pump impeller has separated from the motor shaft. You can push it back on, but it will just come off again. I have not tried adding adhesive because I didn't want a call back. That may work if you want to try it. To replace pump motor:
Take the rectangular recess out by using a putty knife on the left or right side, Remove phillips screws mounting pump. Pull machine forward about two feet to allow you to tilt the machine back to lean it against the wall. Reach under to access the pump. It is held in place by a plastic tab you can depress to remove, but if you break the tab, don't worry, as the mounting screws will hold your pump in place just fine when reinstalled. Remove pump by disconnecting hoses and electrical plug. Change out pump motor (three phillips head screws)

I would guess that the impeller has come off the pump motor shaft. You can disassemble and push it back on, but it will come off again. I don't know if some type of adhesive would work, but I just replace the pump motor.
Drain water from small drain hose (or by removing filter) Remove the screw in the plastic recess by the filter, then use a putty knife on the left or right side to pop out the recess. Remove two more screws holding pump body to front frame of washer. Pull washer about 18 inches away from wall and tilt it back to lean against wall to allow access to the pump through the large rectangular hole in the base of the washer. There is a plastic locking tab holding the pump body to the plastic washer base, but don't worry if you break that, as the screws (removed earlier) will hold the pump back on just fine. Pump motor is held onto pump body with three more screws. Replace pump motor with a new one and reassemble. On a difficulty scale of 1 -10, this one might rate a 4.5 or a 5. Not too bad.
Leaking is rarely, if ever, caused by the drain pump. Small leaks can come from using too much soap, which backs up in the dispenser area and leaks down inside the machine, or larger leaks from a cut in the door gasket.

SOURCE: not draining water!
Some hard object may have damaged the pump impellers. Take the hose off the pump and use a flashlight to look into the suction port on the pump. Look for anything clogging the pump and check the pump impeller for broken/missing blades and make sure that the impeller spins freely. If any blades are missing/broken or if you cannot get the impeller to spin freely, the pump is defective. Hopefully it is just something clogging the pump. Also check the drain line for clogs while it is off the pump. Hope this helped and best wishes.
