We did that, we even ran water through the hose, the washer drains into the sink with full force. then it stops the pump gets quite and then it starts to hum and drain a little more but the clothes and drum do not move?
But when it first starts to drain it fills the sink 1/4 full so it does drain then stops and drains a little more then stops and then drains more until we finally get the error. So you think it is still the pump, it does drain.
I'm sorry I don't understand, please read what you wrote "but if so then that confirms that your drain pump is bad. If not, then that would mean your drain pump is bad--that would be very rare." So the drain pump is or isn't bad and it is rare for it to be bad?
Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX try that. have a good evening.
