I started my front loader on the heavy duty cycle. After about 4 minutes it stopped and the timer started flashing. I also noticed all the lights on the left side ("add garment," "rinse," "door locked," etc) were not lite. I pressed pause cancel and the machine drained the water and allowed me to open the door. When I tried restarting it, nothing happened. The lights on the left still are not lite but the ones on the right are. I unplugged it and plugged it back in and still nothing! It is not even a year old yet!

It sounds like the timer is bad. Try another cycle like delicate, or normal, or heavy duty. If everything works on another cycle then it is probably your timer. If it doesn't work and you have the same problem, then it is probably an expensive fix. Best of luck
Yes, the timer mechanism should be replaced asap. the timer has a motor that is responsible for the rotation of the device. This motor is damaged, in return, not allowing the normal cycle to initiate and transfer sequential information to the motor properly.
We recommend the following when a washer's cycles dont advance..
If the washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer does not advance, the timer probably needs to be replaced
If the timer does not advance while the washer is in a spin cycle, the timer probably needs to be replaced
If the timer does not advance during the rinse cycle, check whether water has filled the tub, if not, it is likely cold water related. Check the cold water supply valve, check the supply hose for kinks, check the filter screen and check the water inlet valve
