If you lay the drain hose down into a bucket does water come out fairly quickly?
If so then it is not a blockage
You may have a coin or other small object in the pump which stops the impeller turning so no pumping action
Only solution is to check if the pump is free to turn either via the filter opening or taking the back panel off (Remove power before doing so ) and turning the pump by hand (there will be a fan blade on the end which is connected directly to the impeller.
If that will not turn very easily then you need to take off the hoses and check what is happening with the pump unit

It sounds like you're brake stator & rotor is worn and merit replacement, it would also be prudent to replace the thrust bearing as well since you'll be in the same area for the repair. The way to verify is to place the unit in spin & allow it to reach speed then open the lid. If it squeals then the repair would need to performed, if it does not then further troubleshooting would be needed. Hope this helps... Bill

I just replaced the trans in my maytag.if the washer is less than 5 years old trans is covered under warranty. but here is the kicker, labor and thrush bearing is not. trans cost is about 300.00 and labor is about the same. a new washer is about 450.00 So if you know someone who can do trans.[like for free] if not buy a new one. Good Luck
