Hello, and thank you for using this service. I'll be helping you with your problem today.

Can I get a model number please to better assist you? The model # should be located on a sticker just below the lid down near the hinges.

OK so if the unit only stops before the spin cycle, this usually means there is an issue with draining the water out. You'll want to tip the washer backwards and unplug the washer. Have lots of towels or a wet vac ready because you'll need to remove the drain pump and check for blockages. Remove whatever debris you find and try the washer again. Below is a link to the drain pump your looking for as well as a video that shows you how to replace it.
