Washing machines don't drain like a sink, there is a pump inside that pumps the water out at the end of a cycle, usually before the spin cycle starts. If the machine is not draining, there is a problem with the pump. Assuming you have an electric pump, either it is not getting electricity due to a defect in the timer or the wiring, or the pump itself is defective.
I don't know what your powers and abilities are, but if possible you can check for power using a multimeter. The pump will be located in the base of the machine, and will be connected to the outer tub with a hose. Turn the water taps off. Remove the power lead from the pump and cycle the timer by hand to see if power is coming to the lead after the wash cycle. If it is not, the timer is likely defective.
If you are getting power, the pump is defective. Depending on the manufacturer, sometimes you can get a repair kit for the pump, but practically your best bet is to go to an appliance place and get a replacement pump - they are common because pumps and timers are the most common machine failures.
Replacing the pump is usually pretty simple, and involves undoing screws for the most part. Just be aware that even in a machine that drains properly there can be up to a liter of water left in the pumps and hoses.

DO NOT attempt to turn this washer upside down! The wash tub is suspended by suspension springs and it will dislodge the wash tub from its mounts. The washer also weighs about 200 lbs. Not a bright suggestion.
In addition, if this is an OASIS, no special tools are required to remove the wash tub. It usually involves removing the center cap from the wash plate and loosen the bolt underneath with a socket. You will need to remove the wash tub ring in order to get the wash tub out, however. This is the pastic ring around the top of the wash tub. It simply snaps in place and can be removed by popping the retaining taps free with a screwdriver.
If you hear a rattling noise, I would recommend you check the drain pump first as "titelines" suggested. It is common for items to get lodged in the piump impeller and make noise. Keep in mind...there are TWO pumps on an Oasis. One is a recirc pump. Check them both. If anything has been left in the pump for any significant period of time, it can damage them.
You will need to access them both with the rear panel removed and the wash tilted up so you can access the mounting bolts and screws from underneath. I would STRONGLY recommend you drain all residual water from the wash tub prior to disconnecting any drain hoses. If you own a wet/dry shop vac, this can be accomplished by removing the drain hose from the standpipe and pulling a vacuum on it. This will minimize any mess you may have to clean up later.
If your model number differs from the one you posted this question under, please post back with your correct information. I hope this helps you.

Excessive force on door lid is preventing lock bolt from
Wash media buildup is preventing lock bolt from retracting.

The F54 fault code indicates that the control board senses high motor current.
This can be caused by excessive friction in the spin basket.
With the washer off, open the lid and see if the basket spins freely.
If not, you may need to remove the basket and check for an item stuck between the spin basket and the outer washer tub.
The second and third images show procedures for removing the basket on the Oasis washer depending on whether you have an impeller or agitator in your model.
If the basket spins okay, then you can follow the technical troubleshooting described in the first image.
This may help you determine the cause of your washer problem.
