Question about Washing Machines
Water does not drain
You say that it doesn't drain, but does it spin? If the dryer will spin, but will not drain, then you most likely have an obstruction in the main drain line. Sometimes clothing like a sock can get between the clothes tub and the outer tub that holds the water. It can then get into the drain hose that attaches to the pump or even into the pump itself. You will have to remove the large diameter black hose that attaches to the pump and check. If something is clogging it, then use needlenose pliers to get the obstruction out if there is any.
If the washer won't spin or drain, but the motor is running, then the washer probably has a frozen pump pulley and the pump would have to be replaced. To check a pump, remove it from the washer and try to rotate the pulley manually. It should turn freely. If not, replace the pump.
Hope this helped you and good luck finding a resolution to your problem.
