Hi, I have a draining problem with my Inglis top load washing

Hi, I have a draining problem with my Inglis top load washing machine (#8280869). this is a direct drive transmission kind. At the end of washing cycle (anyone), the water stays in, it seems that the motor is not working only for this function. No noise from the motor or the pump only on this function. All other functions works well... I already checked the pump itself: move freely. I'm thinking about the timer but I'm not sure. Any help will be welcome. Thank you.

And please let me know on what you find. Thank you
