ok you have a siphon problem, take the drain hose out of the drain in the house and put it in a bucket higher than the lid of the machine and try it, if it doesn't come right out and fills you drain is to tight in the drain hole, do you have this clamped or tapped? this will cause this problem, you need to have an air space between the pipe and drain hose, thanks Bryan
