If the motor and pump is running but no water is draining out then most likely the 3363394 pump is bad.

One thing you can try first is to lower the drain hose over a shallow pan and see if the water in the tub will drain by gravity. If not then there may be a sock or other obstruction blocking the pump.

The image below will show how to access the drain pump. It is a good do-it-yourself project.

The 3363394 pump can be obtained from the following link:
