If a washing machine is not draining the water there is a handful of issues it could be. If a machine has stopped working completely and is full of water then it could be something as simple as a power failure. Waiting for the power to come back on or turning it back on if a switch has tripped should be enough to get the machine going again. Once back up and running a washer should continue the programme and ultimately start draining the water again.

If this doesn’t work then it likely to be a blockage somewhere in the water drainage pipe or a failure of the water pump. Check for a blockage first at the plumbing under the sink as this will save you moving the washer around to check at the back. It’s possible there is a blockage in the end of the drainage pipe so checking the end first is a good idea. It is also worth trying to find out if the pump is working or trying to work to try to confirm if that is the reason the washer is not draining the water.

If necessary you can drain the washer manually either at the front via the pump filter or via the drain hose at the rear. It might be possible to clear the blockage to the water pump if you find a sock or other small item of clothing in the filter preventing water from draining. Of course an easy solution to check for certain why a washer is not draining the water is to call an engineer.
