Most likely the motor control unit, the MCU controls the timer (loop circuit). Best way to check is to just pull the MCU out and visually inspect it for burned components, although it is not always visible. You may need to make some involved voltage readings to verify.

Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean (ref manual, it may not be there, they want a tech to come by to make more $). There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it (4 to 6 inches maximum) Of course some direct the hose into sink, fine. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too.
Rate me nice or not at all. Happy spinning! Nice to watch the machine spin, not your head!

There is a door locking unit that should lock when you press go. This must have failed. It lives just under the lid in the middle at the front. It is thermal piston, when you press go it gets power and extends. When it hits a micro switch that tels the washer the door is shut and allows it to continue, else it shuts down. To get at it you have to take the front off, leave the door on.
