MAYTAG TOP LOADING MACHINE NOT DRAINING
HI, check the following to address this issue.

How do I drain a maytag washing machine?
If the machine will not operate to drain the water, gravity will do the job for you. Simply remove the drain hose from the standpipe, and lower it to a floor drain if one is near enough to the machine. If no floor drain, you can catch the water from the hose into a large bucket for disposal. You will need to empty the bucket numerous times before the washer is empty.
