Check inside underneath from front. Disconnect the hose to the pump from the drum. You probably have something stopping the pump from running. Like a coin or toothpick. Put your finger in the hole a feel for something there. Remove any foreign objects and put it back together. Try to run a cycle. Hopefully the pump wont need to be replaced.
