Hi, welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you! If the machine is actually draining even though it is saying it did not, the issue is with the pressure switch circuit. The pressure switch is mounted near the top of the machine and will have a very small hose attached to it. Access is gained by removing the top cover of the machine. The pressure switch will look like the picture at the URL below.
Once accessed, carefully remove the very small hose from that switch. If you blow through the hose, does air easily pass? If so, that switch will likely need to be replaced. If not, you will need to clear the hose at the tub fitting.
