You probably have a blocked drain hose - the most common cause is a coin or a button but sweetie wrappers & paper are just as bothersome. Turn off the machine & unplug. Pull the machine forward so that you can access the rear. The drain hose is at the bottom of the rear of the machine and is held in place by a very strong spring-loaded clip or else a jubilee clip. This needs to be removed & will result in the water inside the machine & hose draining out so make sure you have plenty of containers & cloths/towels etc to catch & mop up. The blockage is usually located just inside the hose. Remove anything you find. Also check the hole on the machine where the hose attaches. Re-attach hose. Clean up, put machine back and switch on. Also check filter for clogging (see manual). Run machine on rinse & spin cycle. Hopefully that should do it. Good luck.

Take clothes out,check the hose for is it blocked or kinked put a clothes hanger in hose and see if you can un-snake any thing out,then put draino-max jel in washer and let it set for about 2-3hrs,see there may be hair blocking the pump were it drains,this stuff work great for front-loader so let it sit.then try putting on drain it may take a few times,the when it drains,run washer on full cycle no clothes hot-water let it go through a full wash cycle etc.

Clogged pump stopped up drain. If the washer does not think all water was pumped out in 8 minutes then it shuts down. Slow drain is my first inclination.
