Hello. My name is ***** ***** I'll be helping you with your appliance question today. Please wait a few moments while I review your question.

If the small drain hose is clogged, it's best to just blow compressed air through the hose and that'll clear it out. If not, then a small pipe cleaner can be shoved through the hose to clear it out. Typically soap scum and grime just build up and clog the hose by that drain catch with line not allowing water to come out that hose so as a technician we just blow compressed air up through the hose and then water will drain out.
