more than likely you have a clogged check valve in this, Part 2844this comes off the side of you pump and unscrews, this is what your drain hose connects to, remove the fron bottom panel on the machine and on the right front side of you pump and motor assembly you will see this, remove the drain hose and unscrew this counter clockwise and clean it out , these get clogged. let me know, thanks Bryan
