Hi, you need to replace the wash motor. These have an auxiliary drain motor that's why it drains. Check the use and care manual. Some of these had a five year warranty on the wash motors. You will need to get the pump and motor from a local appliance parts house or searsparts. I work on the honor system here @ Just Answers.
