Question about Washing Machines
IF the tub is spinning at high speed but the water is not draining fully. then you need to remove the filter and pump assembly and look for more blockage further past the filter/pump.
its not hard to do just a screw or 2 and a 2 clamps.
be certain that there are not some clothing or debris above the filter too , pull the door rubber back and explore around under the tub.
and be certain that the impellers on the pump move freely and are not broken. you need a flashlight.
disconnect the power because of the water present.
its only little work ,the pump comes apart easily.

You will need to access the debris trap from the back of the machine. If there is no filter at the front, pull the machine out and you will see a roughly oval panel at the bottom of the rear of the machine. Unscrew the 3 or 4 screws and unclip. Directly below the drum, you will now see a rubber "Cup" like bulge in the black pipe, with a plastic tube connected to a plastic pipe. The cup is held in place by a large jubilee clip. Unscrew the clip, pull off the rubber boot to expose the debris trap (A conical plastic cage with a ping pong ball in it) Take out the ball and the plastic trap, clean out the debris and replace the trap and the ball (Note that the cage may have a slot in it that locates in the rubber boot, make sure it lines up, or it won't reassemble correctly). Now push the boot back onto the fitting at the bottom of the drum where it came from and tighten up the jubilee clip, making sure that it is fitted correctly (it too may have a small slot out of it that fits around a protrusion on the bottom of the housing).
