Hi, 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. Regards,polysandy
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.

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. For more Hotpoint aid
make sure unit is level possibly lower front legs down so front sits higher,,, and also when u put or load in push the tub back so when the water enters it all enters into the tub sometimes the water will splash on the tube and cause a problem u are discribing hope this help
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.
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..
