Hello when it should be draining do you hear a humming type noise from the bottom? Also can you double check the model i can not pull it up on any data base thanks?

These are the numbers on the appliance, but there was a reference to Electrolux Home Products

yes
Expert:  Appliance Medic replied 8 years ago.
Ok great so that means the pump is getting power. You have one of two issue the drain hose has a clog in it or the drain motor has some debris inside of it not allowing the impeller to spin. So you will need to pull the unit out remove the drain pump try to blow through the drain hose if that is clear the drain motor will either need to be cleared or replaced.
