Question about Washing Machines
More likely it sounds like Bad Coupler but still you need to check in the following order :-
Motor coupler To test the motor coupler, re-start the washer in its spin cycle. Let the machine run for a minute, and then open the lid and notice whether the tub is spinning:
Alternatively, there could be clothes caught between the inner and outer tubs. Read the "It spins but won't pump" section of the "It won't drain" section. Also, there could be other things that cause friction on the drive train. Seek the assistance of a qualified appliance repair technician.
Siphoning If the water that pumps from the machine goes right back into the machine after the spin cycle, it may be because your washer is siphoning the water from a laundry tub with a slow drain, back into the washer. Try to improve the draining of the laundry tub. (Is there something stuck in the drain?) Also, be sure the drain hose doesn't reach more than about 4 inches into the laundry tub. If it does, cut off the excess.
Water-inlet valve Water-inlet valves eventually fail. One problem that may develop with a water-inlet valve is that it can no longer completely shut off when the electricity is turned off to it. Then, the valve may leak and drip water into the clothes tub--you may notice that your washer has water in it when you haven't used it for a few days. To fix this, replace the valve.
Before that, follow the below trick :-
Start a cycle and press the cancel to get it into the 2 minute drain sequence. Listen to the drain motor. If it sounds like it's running then it is. If it sounds like it's jammed then something is jamming the impeller blade of the drain motor. The sump area (bottom of the pump) I've never seen to clog the drain, usually when you have a clogged drain line it's either the hose or the disposal that the hose goes into. You can take the kickplate off and disconnect the drain hose near the front middle/right area and blow through it to make sure it's clear.
Let me know the update.
