HOW TO DRAIN WATER IF MACHINE SOPS AND WONT RESTART
I take it that you have tried rotating the cycle knob slowly through the point at the end of the wash cycle to the rinse cycle? On many machines, this will trigger the pump to drain the tub. Yet I am guessing that you have already tried that.
You could try running a garden hose from the machine along the floor and then outdoors. Next, take the end of the garden hose and place it into the top of the machine so that the end of the garden hose goes to the bottom of the tub. Feed in another five feet of garden hose into the machine so that this five feet is below the water level. Now, hold the palm of your hand over the end of the garden hose at the bottom of the machine and while doing this, pull out the extra five feet of garden hose and then remove your hand from the end of the garden hose. This should have "primed" the end of the garden hose with water so that the water will get sucked out of the machine and flow through the garden hose to the outdoors.
If this doesn't work, then you will need another person to **** on the other end of the garden hose in order to get the water to start flowing through the garden hose.
