There is about one inch of water sitting at the bottom of my washing machine. It has sat there for over a day now, since I ran my last cycle. Is there something going bad in my washer?

Sounds like the drain is stopped up. – getterdun Mar 14 '14 at 11:51
Or, in all probability, you have one or more filters at the bottom that need to be cleaned up or replaced. See your washer's user manual to determine if you have these, and how often to clean / replace them. – alt Mar 14 '14 at 18:05
