You need to remove top cover to get to inlet valve (part where hoses attach). Be careful while testing parts for 120 volts. The inlet valve usually has 2 electric coils on it, some have 3 coils. While the machine is in fill cycle, check for 120 volts across each set of terminals on each coil (round plastic part with 2 terminals at each end). 1 coil is hot water--one is cold water (in some 3 coil valves 3rd coil is warm). If 120 volt is present depending on if machine is on hot or cold, the electronic boards and controls are good. Problem will be with the inlet valve itself and will need replaced. If no voltage, problem may be with control board or wiring.
A lid switch doesn't regulate water capacity and if the lid switch fails, the machine will not execute a complete wash cycle. If the washer functions but only at partial water fill for the selected load level... then the problem is likely a clogged pressure switch tube or a malfunctioned pressure switch. Got mine used online - fixed the very same issue.
This is caused by a faulty control board. The button you referred to is part of the board and the control board manages all aspects of the wash cycle. You will need to replace the control board. Here is a link to the part you need.
Many GE®/Hotpoint® washers use a clutch and an automatic shift lever. This assembly is quite complicated. If there's a problem with it, you probably should contact a qualified appliance repair technician.
Many washing machines have multiple-speed drive motors. Though it's uncommon, the drive motor may work fine on one speed but not on another. If the drive motor has failed on one speed, you need to replace the entire motor.
Washer is most likely trying to fill with cold rinse water and the inlet screen is blocked or the cold water solenoid is bad. If you set washer to wash cold only it will not fill or fill very slowly. When you set it to warm or hot you are getting almost all hot. Clean inlet screen or replace inlet water valve.
