Re: Washer will not hold water
Make sure that the drain is within the height requirements. You stated that you just moved the washer and you should check out how the drain is configured. If the drain is too low, then the water will just run straight out of the washer. I will attach a photo for reference. Hope this helped and best wishes.

ND stands for No Drain.
It means that either your drain is plugged, the piping inside your washer to the drain pump is plugged, your pump is damaged, your control panel is damaged or a combination of the above.
If you can hear your drain pump operating, you should check for blocked piping. If you have water in the washer, unhook your washer hose from the back of the washer and lower down to the floor to see if water drains from your washer. If little water runs out there is a good chance that the hoses inside your washer are plugged with something. If water runs out freely, then there is a problem with your pump that will not allow it to pump water up to your drain hookup.
if it drains into a bucket it should drain into the stand pipe too,does it overflow out of the stand pipe (waste pipe) when draining?if so the pipe is blocked,also how high is the pipe?draining into a bucket might be less on the pump because gravity is helping drain if bucket is on floor,if the pipe is up high it might not be able to push it,there could be something in the drain hose that goes from the tub to the pump if it did drain no problems before,also when you stick the drain hose into the stand pipe if it's tight it might not have enough air getting into pipe to let it drain,fill the washer,put it on drain after you have some water in it,pull the drain hose out to the top of the stand pipe and let it drain,if it drains ok and water is going down pipe with no back up then it's an air problem,hard to say without being there,you're just gonna have to play detective,did you try to hold the bucket up higher than the washer so the water won't siphon out,if the bucket is up higher than the water level in the machine and it drains then you have a problem with the stand pipe or air gap problem.
The drain hose on a washing machine
connects the drain pump to a stand pipe, a U-pipe under the sink, or
another place for draining dirty water into the sewer. If your washer
won't drain properly, the problem is sometimes an object blocking the
drain hose, like a pair of underpants, a child's sock, or pieces of
something that broke up in the washer.
Unplug the washer and put the plug on top of the machine to keep it out of any spilled water.
any wet clothes out of the washer and bail the water out of the drum
with the bucket. The washer may be too heavy to move if it's full of
water and wet clothing.
Pull the washer out from the wall enough for you to get behind it.
the plate from the back of the washer by taking out all the screws.
Different brands and models of washers vary in how many screws hold on
the back plate, and not all models require removing the plate to get to
the pump where the hose is attached.
Locate the drain hose. Of the three hoses
coming out of the back of the washer, the drain hose is the largest in
diameter and is attached to a drain pipe instead of a faucet.
Check the drain hose for kinks and bends. These are often the cause of a blocked or slow-running drain hose.
the drain hose from the washer by detaching it from the drain pump. You
will need a screwdriver or a slide-lock wrench to open the clasp that
holds the hose to the pump, depending on what type of clasp it is.
Keep the bucket nearby to catch any water that comes out of the drain pump when you remove the hose.
Remove the other end of the house from the pipe it drains into.
the clothes hanger open so you can use it to poke inside the hose. Push
or pull out the material that's causing the blockage.
Replace the hose and run the washer to check if it's clear.
Very possible your household drain pipe is almost the same size as the washers drain pipe. The house hold pipe should be approximately twice the diameter so as to allow equalising air in while water is being expelled from the washer. If at any time there is water flowback, it wont be forced into the washer pipe as it will now have an air gap.
Have you moved recently, or moved the washer for any reason?
Two things can usually cause that.
First, Some part of the drain hose must always be higher than the highest possible water level in the machine. Remember that water flows downhill. If all the hose is lower then the highest possible water level the machine can never fill since water will drain out hose. So, raise the hose higher than the flat top of the washer and try again.
2A, Inserting the drain hose too far into the house drain. or 2B, sealing out ALL air in the drain line by using a hose too tight in the drain pipe or taping the drain pipe tightly with the drain hose in it can both create a vacuum in the drain line which will actually **** out all the water in the tub. This can be tested by pulling the drain all the way out and aiming it into the tub as you try it. Good Luck.
the drain pipe in the wall needs to be as tall as the cabnet of the washer. if it is the see how much hose is going into the drain pipe. should only be about 9 to 12 inches into the pipe. any more than that will cause a syphon and suck the water out as it fills
What height is mentioned in your manual for your drain pipe (the outlet pipe for your machine) There should be a height (before u bend it downwards into the drain) or the water will just flow out...........
And do not over-load your washer.
