Question about Washing Machines
Welcome to FixYa.
Based on your description, you are indeed looking in all the right places when you said... "What about the hose that leads from the tub into the filter?"
You may have a "stuck" or "sticky" back flow ball inside the bellows from the tub to the pump.
It will look like this if you first undo the large clamp...
**watch when putting this above clamp back on you are over the "lip" of the tub, you don't want it slipping off when full of water...potentially quite a mess.**
Then pull the bellows from the tub, you'll now be able to observe the back flow ball...usually pretty "gunked" up and dirty.
This may cause it to stick, hence inhibiting a proper drain...
Take the bellow's right out and clean it in a sink thoroughly under hot water and white vinegar or mild detergent.
I'd suggest this for the pump as well if you haven't already through your fairly thorough diagnosis process.
If you go to all these length's yet the pump continues not to drain the unit I would be looking to replace the pump.
I've had in my experience, a pump which appears to move the impeller while observing it empty with the filter out so I can see it, yet when under the weight of the water against it will not pump it out.
Hope this helps move you forward and in fact solves the issue. These are all my own images which I capture on the job, so they are "real world" scenarios, not just some hypothetical possibilities.
Let me know how you make out, I'll watch for your progress report.
