take the top piece off by hand. Below that should be a plastic cover hiding a bolt. Lift up this plastic cover and remove bolt. Lift agitator up. Might have to wiggle it a bit.

SOURCE: how does the timer knob come off
Push the knob to the off position then spin it to the left. it should just screw off. There is only one or two models that dont. To acces the timer you have to take the 2 screws out of the corners of the control panel (philips) They are either on the front or the back of the machine, left and right corners. The whole control panel will pull forward and then lift up and flip back. Theres the timer. Any more questions let me know.

Check out the drain pump, it is not uncommon stuff gets stuck in the impeller preventing it to do its work.
Also check out the drain filter and that the drain tube is not clogged. Very common causes of trouble in my experience and would give symptoms like you describe..
A good method to check if the output side is clear may seem a little gross but... take a deep breath and blow through the drain tube from the other end (taking whatever precautions you feel like).... It should be possible and if you can't, you know where the problem is.

This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.
First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
Enter your model number (###.########) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.
See the following for how to release the console:
Also see the Whirlpool / Kenmore Service Manual for top load, direct drive washers:
If this is a basic top load, direct drive washer, these units may have one of two different timers. (See the Whirlpool PDF).
On models with a metal timer, you have to release the console, pull it forward and tilt it back in order to get to the back of the timer.
The knob screws onto a medal shaft that goes through the timer.
Usually, trying to un-screw the knob won't work by itself since the shaft will also turn.
I found that if you hold the back of the shaft with a thin needle-nosed pliers, you can unscrew the knob.
Then you simply have to disconnect the timer.
The Whirlpool PDF also has troubleshooting and testing procedures for the timer.
