If this is new installation, the wiring is incorrect.
If this is old installation, try resetting timer.

Connect the timer white wire to bare ground wire.
Open following link to read instructions:
http://waterheatertimer.org/programmable.html#wire

Connecting white to ground is not 100% code, but it is not dangerous in this instance since the clock motor is less than 3 watts.
Or install battery-operated Intermatic ST01C timer that does not require Neutral wire:

It sounds like wiring is wrong.

If you have GE Tork Intermatic UPM Woods Brinks Hagar Pass-n-Seymour Stanley Westek in-wall timer, with red, black, white and green wires, then you probably put red and white wires together.
Add a comment any time.

See instructions along with image at following link:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Program-wire-Utilitec-0192773.html

Heres how to wire timer

1) Timer-green-wire connects to bare ground wire.
2) Switch has 2 wires. Take switch wires and connect them to timer-black-wire and timer-red-wire. Choose either one for now.
3) In back of electric box are white wires twisted together and covered with wire nut. Connect timer-white to these wires.
4) If electric box does not have white wires described above, then connect timer-white to bare ground, along with timer-green wire.
5) Turn on electricity, and push ON-OFF button > with GE timer, door is push-button switch. If lights come on, timer is wired correctly. If lights do not come on, then reverse timer-red and timer-black wires.

Find the Hot wire:
Your switch has 2 wires. One of these wires is Hot, and one goes to load. Disconnect wires from switch. Turn on power. Do not stand on wet surface. Test each wire to bare copper wire. When tester lights up, that is Hot wire. The other wire goes to load.

Connect wires:
Hot wire goes to Black timer wire
Wire to load goes to Red timer wire
White wire connects to white wires that are twisted together
Bare copper wire connects to Green wire from timer

How to connect white wire to white wires that are twisted together.
a) Strip white timer wire so you have 1-1/2 " of bare wire. Stranded wire will wrap around other wires easily.
b) Remove wire nut. DO NOT UNTWIST wires.
c) Hold all whites together so bare copper lines up. Wrap stranded copper around the twisted wire.
d) Replace wire nut, or use larger wire nut. Twist real tight. Do not use tape. You can solder the connection.
e) When done, pull on white time wire to make sure it is held tight. Push whites back into box.

Press the learn button on the part that plugs in. Then press the "on" button for the remote and it should learn the code.

More information is needed to find manual.
ET130 timer appears to have 6 buttons with 3 buttons on each row.

Review options below:

1) Add a comment and describe timer buttons in detail so I can match buttons with known timers.

2) Open following links and check if manuals for ET525, ET420C, ET420 might have same button and programming relationship.

Most digital timer problems can be solved by resetting timer.
Open following link for possible instruction manual with troubleshoot steps
http://waterheatertimer.org/UPM-timers-and-manuals.html#Garrison

Check the following:
Program disable feature is not enabled.
Check 2 different sets of batteries: 1 set AA for transmitter, and 1 set button-cell batteries on back of timer
Choose between 4 different functions: programmable, photocell, countdown, or random
Using programmable mode: make sure there are no programming conflicts

Open following link to identify product and download manual

Q1) Some UPM timers, and other brands, offer countdown feature in addition to regular programming.
So you choose between regular programming and countdown.
Countdown is for a bathroom fan for example.
Push the button and fan turns on for set amount of time.
After countdown is over, fan turns off automatically.

Q2) Yes all days of the week can be selected.
Set event 1 ON for all days.
Set event 1 OFF for all days.
Do not set more events unless you want more on-off events.

Q3) Switch position depends on model number.
Add a comment with model number to identify product and I will look at manual alongside you.
Or try the switch in different positions.
