It sounds like the motor is heating up and when it cool its able to turn on for a little longer. Replace the motor.

    On occasion the timer can send the wrong voltage to the motor causing it to shut itself off.Replace the timer first because I honestly believe its the cause and its less costly

I was just wondering where the filter was so i could clean it out

Most washing machines have a pump filter to protect the pump from obstructions such as coins. The pump filter should be at the front of the washing machine at the bottom left or right. It should be obvious (a square or round flap) but sometimes the filter is hidden behind the front kickstrip panel. A good washing machine filter should have retractable pipe at the side so that you can drain the water into a bowl.

The best way to find out if your washing machine has a pump filter is to read the instruction book. However, you can carefully remove the kickstrip at the front of the washing machine (if fitted) to see if there is a hidden filter. Be careful because they are often flimsy and brittle and can break easily. The kickstrip usually clips into place with about 3 tabs but as I say, they are sometimes easily broken. I usually place a small flat-bladed screwdriver between the top of the kickstrip and the casing and then gently lever downwards whilst pulling forward.

Examples of washing machines that sometimes have a hidden filter are Indesit, Candy and Hoover. Most washing machines do not hide the pump filter. Hotpoint and Creda often have a pump filter hidden in the sump hose (leading to the pump from the tub), which is not meant to be customer accessible. This is a stupid place to put a pump filter because when it gets blocked, most people are forced to call out an engineer.
Taking the pump filter out

The filter should unscrew anti-clockwise. Some unscrew until they come out and some just unscrew a quarter of a turn or so and allow the filter to be pulled out. Make sure you have at least one large towel to catch water and don't take it out at all if the washing machine still has water in the drum (see next paragraph if it has).

Clean pump

sometimes a sock or something small gets sucked into the pump that pumps out the water on some brands of washers (depending which washer you have) take the back off the back of the washer (after unpluging and turning off the water feeds) locate where the pump is and look to see if theres something inside the tube with a pair of pliers you can take the clamp off and exstract the blockage and replace the hose + clamp and after cleaning up the water try to run the washer again if things work finsh pulling the washer back together

Somewater stays in washing machine after wash

It's not pumping out fast enough to get it all out in the alloted time. Check the sewer line. Run a garden hose into it to see if it takes all the water you can throw at it. If that is okay, then have a look at the washer's drain pump, belt and hoses. Sometimes a bobby pin, small nail, or toothpick gets into the pump and stops it turning. Or soap scum and lint builds up. Or a hose gets kinked. Good luck.

My machine will not pump out the water

The possible problems here are blockages or pump failure. Blockages are the more likely explanation but pumps can fail. If the washing machine will not empty the water out you may also not be able to open the door on some washing machines although these days it's much rarer to have a pneumatic lock on the door due to cost cutting (if a washing machine has a pneumatic door safety lock a rubber hose is connected to the door interlock from the pressure chamber bottle on the tub - water in the tub forces air up this tube and locks the door, which is released when the water is pumped out and the air pressure drops).
Some washing machines have a filter at the front of the machine that can be checked for blockages. Sometimes the filter is hidden behind a removable trim or panel at the base of the front. (Some Hoover & Hotpoint washing machines do not have any customer accessible pump filters - if in doubt it will tell you in the instruction book).
If your washing machine has a water pump filter and a filter drain hose you should be able to drain the water from the washing machine into a bowl without moving the washing machine. Open the pump filter flap and pull the small drain hose forward. Take the bung out and drain into a bowl. It's likely to be painstakingly slow but at least you don't have to try and pull out a heavy washing machine full of washing and water.
If your washing machine doesn't have a pump filter, or it has a pump filter but no draining hose then it's a bit trickier. To drain the washing machine, you will need to remove the drain hose from the drain pipe at the back of the washing machine, and lower it into a bowl or bucket. Many plumbers now plumb the drain hose into the U bend directly under the sink instead of a separate waste pipe at the back of the washer. If yours is connected directly to the u-bend, you can usually unscrew it easily. Remember though, that with the pipe disconnected from the U bend, any water poured down the sink will flood out into the cupboard until the hose is reconnected.

Once you have drained the water, you need to check for blockages in the pump by unscrewing the pump filter. If none is found, sometimes a blockage can occur in the plastic connector that the drain hose is connected to at the sink end (if connected this way)
Once you have the drain hose disconnected and lowered into a bowl or bucket the water should siphon out as long as the pipe is low enough. You are likely to get several bowls full of water from the washing machine. If little or no water comes out then it may be blocked by an item of clothing like a sock and it won't be possible to empty the machine this way or it is going to be a long process.
Once the last bit of water has drained out, the washing machine may now spin as the safety system for preventing a spin while water is in the machine will now recognize the water has gone and allow a spin. Keep the pipe low down and in the bowl or bucket and put the washing machine on a spin only program. Note, this last step is not strictly necessary as once drained, the door should open. However, you might prefer to try to spin a few more bowls of water out.
Clearly if you put more water into the machine it is likely to fail again until the fault is rectified but these instructions should at least get the clothes out.
Other possible obstructions could be inside the sump hose leading to the water pump. Many Hotpoint washing machines have a filter inside the sump hose which gets blocked. Finally, the pump itself can be faulty.
