Pump Filter on Kenmore Front Loading Washer

Kenmore Front Loading Washer, model 796.4027#2900. As directed in the manual, we occasionally drain the hose and clean the pump filter (found at the bottom of the washer.) When we drain the hose, the water very slowly drips out and it takes about a half hour to actually drain it. Then when I twist the pump filter to remove it, water comes pouring out of that and I have to clean it up with many towels. This doesn't seem right.. I imagine the hose should drain quicker, and there shouldn't be any water pouring out of the pump filter when I remove it. Can someone help me with this?

If the washer is not draining from the washer through the hose, one thing that may help is to check for a clogged hose. The expert will review this model and respond, but I did attach two similar questions and a video that may provide some help. I hope this information helps with the drain issue.
