Try this. No parts needed! Remove the small hose at the water level switch(by the timer) and blow out the hose to remove any sand or trash accumulated over the opening under the bottom of the tub. Go ahead use them lungs! Then put the hose back onto the switch tight to keep air from escaping. Pump the standing water out of the washer and try again.
