Unless pump motor is dead I'm 99% sure that either filter, pump and/or drain pipe are clogged.

welcome to Fixya,
My name is Huuum,
How old is your machine?
I have found some reasons of what may be the matter!
List of thinks to check
1.Defective Lid Switch
Check lid switch for proper operation. Check the switch for continuity. If it is found to be open, replace the switch assembly.
2.Faulty Direct Drive Coupling
The Direct Drive (motor) Coupling may be broken. Many Whirlpool/Kenmore brands washing machines utilize a small, relatively inexpensive direct drive motor coupling. It's plastic and rubber and is mounted to the shaft of the motor on one side, and to the transmission on the other.
It can wear out over time or fail under overloading conditions. This protects your transmission from excessive loading.
3. Faulty Water Level Switch
If the water level switch is not resetting once the water is drain, power will not be available to operate the motor during spin. Check the water level switch for proper operation.
4.Will not drain and displays F/02
The error code F/02 will be displayed if the drain time exceeds 8 minutes. Press pause/cancel twice to remove display. Check the pump filter and wiring connections on the pump. If all looks good, replace the pump.
You may want to use a pro, rather than attempt this project your self.
Let me know how it goes!
Thank you Huuum.

When the washer initially fills for the wash, is it only hot water entering the drum? Try switching the water temperature between hot and cold as it fills. If any of them show little or no water getting through, it sounds too easy but check to make sure water supply taps are on, and that the cold/hot fill hoses aren't reversed. Remove the fill hoses and check any of the screen filters for blockage (in the hoses and in the inlet water valve). When the machine stops and waits to fill but all you hear is a hum, it sounds like there is power going to the valve but water is not able to get through it.

washer is 2 years old and this is 1/2 the cost I paid for it new. My
review of this product after 35 years of technical experience; GE
products (Hotpoint)aren't worth buying any longer.
The problem is the Motor. There is an electronic PC Board attached to the top of the motor and under the drip protector, which protects the PC Board. On this board, there is a green flashing light which displays trouble codes by flashing. Unplug the washer, remove the 3 screws from behind the control panel. Slowly pull the control panel toward you and slide it to the right to release. Inside the washer, there is a diagram with the trouble codes printed in the lower right hand corner. Everything else is self explained. Flashes indicate the problem and the solution is all written. Since I have the same problem and a technician, this is a defective product GE has discontinued and re-manufactured. After phoning GE the motor # Normal 0 WH20X10051 cost $252.25 to ship to my location.

SOURCE: Water doesn't drain
you could have a bad drain pump.
have you checked the hoses that come from the bottom of the tub to the drain pump for anything that might be stuck in there,also check the hose that comes off the drain pump to the wall and look for an obstruction.
