Default Washing Machine Won't Drain

I have a Whirlpool top loader. It fills with water & agitates, but will not drain. The lid catch is intact and there is nothing obstructing any of the hoses. I also replaced the pump - but still, it will not drain. Any ideas on what could be causing the machine not to drain? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Model#? Some model# helps.

Does the motor go dead or runs when the washer should be draining?

If goes dead, check the lid switch!...
