You need to check your drain system before we can say for sure that looks like you are ready to get a new pump and/or belt.
These are the most common causes for machines not draining.

SOURCE: water keeps draining

You may be experiencing what is known as "siphoning".  If you have your drain hose shoved too far down in the drain standpipe, or if you have the top of the standpipe opening sealed off, sometimes it creates a vacuum and will cause the washer to drain constantly drain.  You need an air gap in order to prevent this.  Double check your drain hoses for the following:

1. Make sure the hose is only placed in the standpipe about 3 to 4 inches.  If it is sitting so far down in the pipe that it is resting in the trap where all the water is it will siphon.

2. Check the opening around the top of the standpipe where the hose rests.  Makes sure there is still an air gap around the hose.  That is, make sure the hose isn't seated so tight that it seals off the standpipe completely.  This will cause siphoning.

3. Make sure you haven't placed anything around the standpipe opening.  Many people will wrap old towels or wash cloths around the opening in order to prevent overflows and odors coming back up through the pipe.  In doing so, they often inadvertently seal off the standpipe and cause a siphoning problem.

Last of all, the standpipe should be about 36 inches from the floor.  If your drain line is sitting too low it can also cause siphoning issues.

I know I'm keying in on this drain line issue quite a bit here.  There are some other things that can cause water levels in a washer to drop, but you mentioned nothing about any leaks and this is the most common problem.  You will know for sure if you pull the drain hose out of the standpipe and suddenly hear a sucking noise.  This is air being reintroduced through the drain line.  I hope you find this information helpful.

How to reset my washer, I am having problems with the washer, it does not want to spin on the final cycle; however it does wash. what could possibly be wrong and how can I fix this?

Please remove power for a while and allow unit to drain out the residual voltage so as to reset. Now press down the start /stop buttons prior to plugging the unit. Select a different program and see the timing of the water low into the inlet and in the drain cycle. If you notice that the flow is low then clean or replace the inlet valve, check the water level controller to stop inlet flow and start wash and finally the drain and refill for rinse spin. if not there is an error in the program for the refill and must be checked on the drain and level controller.

Water won't stay filled to complete any cycle

Without a proper model number I would say you need to check the drain hose as if it is laying across the floor or if it is too far inserted in the stand up drain pipe, it will siphon out the water and keep trying to refill. Best off to call a reliable repair company such as Sears.

Hotpoint washer fills begins to agitate then refills continously.

Very likely your drain hose is set too low. You can solve this with a standpipe or a kit called a siphon break.

quite possible that the fuse has gone bad again, if that s the case i would recommend replacing the fuse, and the lid switch.

Washer keeps draining...

sounds as if your drain hose is too low. you need to have the hose higher than the water level in the tub. if the hose is below the water level the water will just pour right out

ROPER RAS6233KQO T.L.W.-Won't fill/rinse with cold water

Most washers have a small screen at the water inlet valve. They can be accessed simply by revoving the hose from the back side of the washer, using a small screw driver you can carefully remove the screens and clean them out under a faucet.That may be all that is wrong.
