Question about Maytag Washing Machines
Water doesn't leave tub.
It could either be the filter (most likely), the drain pump (likely) or the drain hose/tube (least likely).
Normally, there would a filter somewhere at the bottom of your washing machine with the primary function of keeping loose clothing, torn fabric, lint, fluff and foreign objects away from the impeller/pump. Most current washing machine have self-cleaning filters and therefore regular cleaning is no longer a concern. However, some other washing machine need to have the filter manually removed and cleaned regularly or as even in your case. If the filter or grate is clogged or blocked with debris, it may interfere with the normal functioning of your washing machine and may cause the problem as you have described; water doesn't leave the tub.
To check the filter and/or the drain pump, the bottom has to be exposed, the filter/pump located and cleaned. In some instances, the drain could be a valve operated by a solenoid.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
Thank you for using FixYa.
