Tammy, There are a couple of things to check. First fill the washer to the highest water level, then select the final spin drain in the regular wash cycle, the tub should drain empty in 90 seconds or less and then the tub should start to spin. That will tell you if the drain pump and hoses are clear of any clogs, and the drain pump is working proper.
If all's OK, then you'll need to remove the washer cabinet and remove the tub cover and check for a small article of clothing stuck between the tubs. Then you'll need to check the clutch assembly
