Hello, and thank you for using this service. I'll be helping you with your problem today.

This is your pump assembly located in the lower back right corner of the washer. If you tip your washer backwards you can remove the belt and spin the pump pulley by hand to see if it rotates both ways smoothly. If not, then you need to order and replace the drain pump because it has failed which is quite common on this particular model. In fact the pump has been redesigned because of the bearing failing on it. Below is a link to the pump.
