You've got to be missing something. If everything is as you say-- pump working and hose not clogged-- then the washer will drain. That's the way physics works in our Universe.

We're not there at the appliance to physically diagnose it for you-- we rely you to tell us what's happening or not happening. Garbage in, garbage out.

Some thought questions for you:

- have you measured the supply voltage to the pump when it should be running?

- have you blown through the drain hose starting from the pump end of the hose?

- have you removed the suction boot from the pump and checked it for panties, socks, etc?

- with the suction boot removed, have you poured some water into the drum to see if it drains right thru the detached suction boot?
