amana washing machine not draining


Hello, I have an amana washing machine model(nfw7200tw). Its about 3 years old. I was getting a not draining alarm when I washed clothes ..I checked to see if there were any clogs/kinks, I couldn't find any.(I only could disassemble up to the tube just past the drain pump). My local hardware guy told me it had to be the drain pump. I replaced the pump and am still getting a not drain alarm. Is there a diagnostic check I could run and if so how is it done. Or anything else I could do? thanks in advance.

when you had the pump off did you check inside the hose that goes into the pump? what did the pump filter look like?

this is a front load machine correct? It should have a filter right before the pump
