The drain pump is bad or you have something restricting the flow. You can easily take the hose off the pump and see if anything is caught up in there. There will not be anything in the drain hose. If you find nothing then the pump is bad. I am not paid anything to be on this site- all payments come from the customer and I am only paid if they rate my answer in a positive light, so please be fair to me. Ask anything you need to wrap this up.
