The drain pump removes water out of the tub through the drain hose.
Failure Symptoms: When the drain pump fails you might experience poor or no drainage, or water leakage from the the unit.
How to Test: If you're experiencing water leakage, check the pump for cracks/damage that the water is leaking from. If the bearings are worn out they can possibly be the source of the leak, so check them as well. If the pump is the source of the leak, it should be replaced.
If you're experiencing poor or no drainage, check to make sure there is nothing clogging the pump. Sometimes small pieces of clothing can get caught in the pump, preventing proper drainage. If there is nothing obstructing the pump, but still noisy during the drain cycle, the pump could be defective and needs replaced.
Repair Tip: To prevent pump blockage, use a mesh laundry to wash small articles of clothing, such as socks.
