That is a bit too vague. You should explain what is going on more. Does it kick the ball out ever?  After the drain does it not work?  Have u cleaned and tested the switches that are involved?

it's not advancing the player. need someone decent with EMs to check the relay(s), clean some switches. common issue with electrical mechanical games that sat.

Go check the ball count stepper unit. Hand test it. Does it count one step at a time? Does it reset? Is it dirty?
 First thing to do is check the switch the ball sits on. Is the switch properly adjusted and has a clean pair of "points? No wires hanging off or writing on the unit with a paint pen that says "Hawknole was here". Everything clean and groovy looking? No sign pf WD-40?
 Next: BALL COUNT unit as above.
 Let us know how it goes!
