You need to open the water pump to see if it is clogged with any thing causing the obstruction for not draining.

SOURCE: does not drain
Do not open from behind! First drain as much water from the drum as possible. and unplug from the outlet. Then there are 2 screws left and right under the front lower panel at floor level. Undo those two screws. Pry the front panel DOWN from the door panel. Once the lower panel is removed you will see the pump and pump filter on your right. The pump filter is to the left. It has a large turnscrew. Be ready with a pan or something to catch the water from the open filter! Screw this counterclockwise until it comes loose. You will now be able to remove the filter and all the debris. After cleaning, re-screw the turnscrew. Before you put back the front panel test that it is clear by doing a wash. If it still doesnt drain you must remove debris from the pump itself. The pump is between the pump filter and the pump motor on the right. Undo the white clips from the motor and the retaing clips attiching the filter to the metal washer body. Then turn the motor clockwise to separate it from the filter.
BTW - on the back of the front panel are the SERVICE INSTRUCTIONS with a warning - Technicians only. The manufacturer keeps the instructions for doing this and many other simple fixes 'secret' so that their techs can make $!!!! There are no instructions whatsever in the consumer instructions about removing the front panel or cleaning out the filter.

SOURCE: I clogged my washer drain...
follow the discharge hose into the washer body --- the trap will be at the housing the hose connects to --- not a big job. be sure to unplug the machine and hand bail the standing water out of the basket. keep a sponge and rags with a pail for the water in the trap and hose. no special tools, but it will be metric
