[|Washing machine] not draining? If the washer won’t drain or spin, either  something is stuck in the washing machine drain hose or pump, or the  pump is broken. If a washer won’t drain or spin, the fix is simple if  you’re even just a ''little'' bit handy with tools. We’re showing the repair on a Maytag washing machine.

Remove the front panel screws. Start by unplugging the machine and '''emptying''' the water. Bail the water out of the tub, or you can '''drain''' the tub using gravity by placing the '''washer drain''' hose on the floor near the '''drain''' or in a bucket. Clamp the hose to prevent any remaining water from running out.
