The first place to check is your washing machine hose. If the machine is not draining water, you probably have a clog in the hose. Bra wires, clothing and even lint can get trapped in the hose and cause a clog.
Before you start taking apart the washer, make sure the sewer line is not clogged, which would be a much larger plumbing problem. Visit other rooms in your house – such as the kitchen or bathroom – and make sure the sinks drain easily. If these sinks also will not drain, it’s time to call a plumber because the sewer line is clogged.
If there is no problem with the sewer line, the main hose is the probable location of the clog. Empty the machine of clothes, towels and other items. Fill the machine with hot water with a low water setting and pour one cup of white vinegar into the water. The vinegar should cut through the clog and flush it from the hose. Run the machine through a regular cycle without any clothing, towels or fabrics. Then test it by washing a large load of laundry.
