It is the drain pump, it is nt working due to lack of power entering its supply line or there is something stuck in the impeller,or its winding failed, u can check it by observing or wait till machine reach the drain cycle when you hear a humming sound during the drain cycle, you isolated already the supply to the drain pump it means the drain pump is working but there is something blocking the hose,impeller and or the pump motor is weak already. if so, call an authorized servicer or service fr the company to do the job, or if u want to fix it by yourslf, first lay down the hose of the machine at floor level, water will comes out, drain it,with that it means no problem with the water line from the tub of the machine to the drain hose, remove the back cover from there u can see the pump get a mechanical plier to remove the clamp,slide the pump or unscrew it if is installed that way then u can check now the pump physically, sometimes small pins is blocking the impeller if there is nothing and when you touch pump is so hot-it is electrically defective-the winding is weak or just what i have said earlier it is blocked or mechanically defective -replace the pump assy- u can order it -try www. repair clinic .com

Have a look for coins etc stuck in the drain pump or the tub outlet hoses especially where they fit onto the tub. If a coin or other foreign material blocks the water flow when draining , these machines wont spin properly.

If water remains in the drum after the drain cycle, the unit will not go into the spin cycle. There may be a couple of reasons for your problem.
Make sure the drain hose is raised above the machine hose outlet to create a siphon effect. The drain hose needs to have a loop in it to work correctly. You can tie a string around the hose and hook it on the water valve creating a loop in the hose. Raise the loop of the drain hose so the top of the loop height is at the center of the washer drum.
