You have a thermal cutout, usually, behind the back access panel, which is known to cause this problem. It may or may not be resettable but I recommend replacement either way.

The timer knob on the front of the panel have to be removed. It unscrews, counterclockwise. If there are any plastic discs behind it, they will also have to be removed (by pulling off). This will expose the two screws which hold the timer in place.
If the timer knob doesn't unscrew and spins freely, the shaft leading into the timer is dislodged (permanently). You will have to destroy the timer to get to it. Remove the backplate by twisting straight the bent metal pieces which hold the cover in place. When you get to where you can see the shaft you will have to destroy the plastic which surrounds it to get to the shaft ifself. A pair of vice grips and a "I don't care if I destroy it" attitude is helpful. Once you get to the bare metal shaft you can hold it with vice grips and unscrew the knob to expose the two screws which hold the timer in place.

Timers cannot be repaired. The mechanism is a spring - once it weakens, or fails - a new timer is required.
CLICK HERE for your part.
It is $83.72 USD.
Here is a Buy-it-Now eBay auction for $34.99USD & Free shipping!!
Your part number for the timer is 3976570a
A used part would have to come from an appliance store that salvaged from an abandoned washer.... and it may fail shortly anyway.
The new timer will have a warranty, and give you 10 more years of service.
Well worth it.
