Default Maytag washer doesn't drain and goes through all cycles

I have a maytag washer A482. It doesn't drain. When it gets to the end
of the regular cycle, it goes through the permanent press cycle; when
it gets to the end of that cycle, it goes through the delicate cycle.

Timer?

Pump?

Probably unrelated, but about 2 weeks ago, I replaced both belts.

The 2 times my Kenmore didn't drain it was the pump.

Once it was broken, once it was clogged with lint.

I've also seen problems with drainage when the filter/net that I use
on the end of the discharge hose get so clogged the it restricts the
outflow.

I had to replace my pump on the Maytag. Yes could be timer (loose wire, bad
contact?) or solenoid too.
