the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins
agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin

Remove drain hose from where it connects to the plumbing under the sink/tub. Inspect the spigot. If clogged, clean. If clean, then tilt machine back and remove drum to pump hose from pump. Check hose and also drain pump. Clear any obstructions.
