Hi I just purchased my washer last night. It wont hold water. It all drains out from underneath. The drain hose is not too low. The water is not coming from there. It's coming from underneath somewhere. I am going to have to return it but really dont want to. i just wanted to see if maybe there is something that i could fix on my own before i return it. Any ideas?
Another Solution is the waste water pump itself. (not a very expensive part) If the washer has been overloaded a sock or other small article could have gone over the side of the basket and into the waste water system clogging the pump and causing water to come out the hoses under the washer. not a hard fix just a few clips and 2 hoses
THERE IS A CLIP AT FRONT OF LID ABOUT 4 INCHES FROM BOTH SIDES THAT HOLDS FRONT ON. SLIDE BUTTER KNIFE BETWEEN CABNET AND TOP AT THIS PUSH IN TO RELEASE THE TWO CLIPS THIS SHOULD LET FRONT COME FOWARD AT THE TOP THEN LIFT UP TO REMOVE THIS WILL LET YOU SEE WHATS GOING ON. PROBLY A HOSE, BUT MAYBE SEAL AT CENTER ON BOTTOM OF TUB. IF SEAL TAKE MACHINE BACK. SEAL VERY COSTLY TO FIX. HOPE I WAS A HELP. FXIT

Ronald Coons' answer was helpful, pointing me in the right direction. Sure enough, the drain was frozen shut. I had looked for a drain but didn't see one in the bottom of the freezer, didn't realize it was in the back. Anyway, I also noticed the drain tube sloped UP underneath the fridge, then dropped down into the drain/evaporating tray. That guarantees that there would be water sitting in the tube, ready to freeze. I don't worry about critters going up an empty hose, so I removed the clamp holding the hose, cut some off of the end so the hose can now go DOWNhill from the drain to the tray. If that doesn't fix it, I'll go buy some copper wire and implement the rest of Mr. Coons' solution.
The water is siphoning out as it fills. Your drain hose is too low or has a air block. Remove the drain hose from the drain. Set the washer to fill. Hold the drain hose up higher than the washer. If it fills correctly and starts agitating,correct the drain hose problem.
This JUST happened to me last night. Opened washer after a load and still full of water. Fifteen spins later, still about an inch of water in tub... RepairClinic.com suggests checking the hoses from the washer tub to the drain pump for anything clogged in it. (WARNING!!! As soon as you remove one end of the hose ANY water remaining in the tub will come RUSHING out if not clogged. I was prepared for water, but not a rush of water.) If there is no clog in that hose, remove the drain pump and check for something in it. (My pump was burning up because some how a plastic stick got into it. I am waiting on the new pump now.) If there is nothing in the first hose or the pump, see if anything is in the hose leading to the drain.
If not, they suggested something either purchasing a new pump as it may have quit working or something may have gotten stuck in between the tubs. This requires tearing apart and sometimes special tools.
* Inspect the water supply connections
* Inspect the drain hose
* Inspect the water pump
* Inspect outer tub for cracks or corrosion
* Inspect the tub seal
* Inspect the tub bearing

The drain hose is too far down the drain. Pull out excess hose from drain and leave only 8 to to 12 inches. Using zip tie or other method, secure drain hose to water hoses to prevent drain hose from jumping out.
