The water is not draining out and the washing machine is not spinning the water out.

If your washer spins but doesn't pump the water out, the drain line is probably clogged. In many washers, a small sock or other piece of clothing can get between the clothes tub and the outer tub that holds the water. If the clothing gets between the tubs, it may then get into the drain hose that's attached to the pump--or even into the pump itself. If it's in the pump, you need to remove the hoses from the pump and pull the item out.

Leaking water while washing

I just finished repairing a leak with my washing machine. Turns out that the plastic tube that connects from the tub to the water level sensor had pulled off at the tub end. It has a wire spring clip that is supposed to hold it tight to the connector.

How does the wf430 hotpoint washing machine drain

Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0cm 5.4pt 0cm 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0cm; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} Not too sure what you mean but will try to explain. The water in the tub is only kept there because one end of the outlet hose is higher than the tub and the job of the pump is to push the water up the hose and out. If the outlet hose is lower than the tub, all the water inside will just flow out, the pump does not hold the water in the machine it only assists in its removal. If you remove the pump from the machine altogether then the water will just flow onto the floor but if you disconnect the pump from the wiring circuit it will just mean you have no mechanical way of emptying the tub. However if you lower the hose to the ground then by the force of gravity the water will flow out. Just one other point, the hose should come out of the machine and rise up the back of the cabinet then loop down again where it fits into a stand pipe or is connected to a waste pipe, if however the end of the hose is lower than the tub you will get a siphoning effect happen after the first pump out in which case the water from the machine will just empty on its own without the aid of the pump.

Washer will not hold water

You need to check drain hose, the drain hose needs to be above the tub. If it isn't the water will just drain out when you fill

Low Water Level in Roper washing machine

You need to check the pressure switch which is also called the water level switch. There is a small tube attached to it and it may have a blockage or a hole in it. You can find this behind the control panel to the left of the timer.

I have the GE whdsr209doww- leaks all through cycle at the back draintube. I am going to get a new drain tube , but could it be the pump not holding the water in the tub?

FYI, the pump does not have a valve which prevents the water from leaving the tub during wash cycles.
If you were to remove the drain line from the machine the water in the tub would siphon.
I think you are moving in the right direction by replacing the drain tube. Also inspect the other connections from the tub to the water pump and water pump to drain tube..
Good luck...
