Oay, first your going to want to get most of the water out by tilting the unit forward and using a cup to get the water out. next disconnect the water, power and drain hose, if possible take it outside, if not, have a bucket read. get move the unit forward and get behind it, it is easiest if you just tilt the machine forward and lean it against something so you can get under it. when you get under it you will see the drain pump on the left side. there are 2 blue wires on the pump, pull off the connection and check to see if the wire has come loose, if so its an easy fix take apart the connection by the tab on the top and and remove the sleeve and simply use a small screw driver to push the wire back inbetween the prongs. other wise use a 5/16 bit and loosen the drain there will be 2 spring clips on the very small rubber joint, (be aware that if you are inside dont pull it off at once it will spill about 2-4 gallons of water depending on how much you got out), pull that off and check inside the drain with your finger and inside the tub. if nothing is found, replace the pump.

I believe this is the direct drive model. Your clutch is slipping. There is a quick easy fix available that I have used in the past. Remove cabinet from washer. Make sure you know the easy way to do this... 2 screws on top back of washer and 2 holding control panel. cabinet tips toward from of unit and off. Real easy... Remove wire harness from motor under basket. Remove 3 screws holding motor to basket. Remove agitator inside basket. 1 screw holds it in place. Remove entire motor and shaft from unit. Clutch is attached to shaft on top of motor. Pinch spring to remove clean everything with alcohol. Insert #10 washer between cup and spring to give a little more tension. Replace and viola.... all should work well.

If this a electrical pump chk. to see if there is an in line fuse if not then take the hose loose to see if the impeller has any thing hung in it or it could be a bad spot on your timer
