Cabro WTW6200SW2 Top Washer. Water drains on the floor instead of through the drain pipe.

This one sounds like the drain pump is damaged or the drain hose is damaged or detached causing water to drain on the floor instead of through the drain hose. Disconnect power then tape the washer lid closed and lay the machine on its front on a cushioned surface to access the drain pump and the drain hose connections at the bottom of the tub. Reattach the drain hose if detached or replace it if damaged and cannot be reattached to the drain pump. Replace the drain pump if damaged and leaking water on the floor.

Where to locate drain plug so that I can put the washer in storage

Just lay the drain hose on the floor into a shallow pan. Gravity will drain it. Remove the water inlet hoses and then set the machine to warm wash--it should open the inlet solenoids which will allow the inlet water inside the machine to drain back out of the hose connectors. Once drained, turn the machine off. Hope this helps!

I have a hotpoint WF250 1500 spin. It wont drain. i cleared filter but still not drain when restarted. What would problem be? i cannot find the user manual.

Could be a blocked pump or outlet hose, remove the hose and lay it down to floor level to drain off water, then remove lower rear cover of washer, and remove the hose from the pump, see if it nis blocked, couls also be a faulty pump.

Water drains straight out and does not fill machine

Lift the drain hose so that the hose is higher than the lid on the machine. At the moment it sounds like the hose may be laying on the floor?

Wont spin to get water out of the cloths

Check the operation of the drain pump and the rest of the drain system. Lay the drain hose out near the floor (put the end in a pan or bucket) to see if it will gravity drain). It must drain to get to the spin cycle. Hope this helps!

When starting to wash water goes straight out of

The drain you are putting the drain hose into needs to be at least 30 inches above the floor. You probably have the drain hose to low or laying on the floor for this to be happening.

Drain pump will only drain when layed on the floor

Sounds like the pump is going bad. It will drain while on the floor because the hose id lower then the water level inside the machine. You can get to the pump by removing the rear access panel. It is an electric motor. You can test to see if it is getting 120V.
They have been known for the impellor coming off the shaft as wel.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Water not going into drum

Don't remove the filter prior to draining unless you want a massive flood! try laying the waste hose close to the floor into a suitable receptacle. If this isn't possible look to the front of the machine behind the kickplate for a small black drain hose which should do the same job. Once the machine is drained take a look at the filter and if blocked removed the culprit, if not blocked call in professional help.
