When I turn on the washer at the start of a cycle it will not fill with water. Instead it automatically begins to agitate as if it thinks it already has water in it. Is there a way to reset the water level sensor? Or is there another fix?
I solved the identical issue that I was having with my washer, maybe it will help you: I opened the front panel to the washer and found a clear plastic line running down the inside; it had become clogged. Could tell, because disconnecting the line caused the washer to function. Removed clog and it seems to run fine now.

Should have a tube that goes from the bottom of the washer tub to the control panel - check the hose for problems first; if none found - you will need to replace the water level switch. It is a pressure sensitive (diaphragm) sensor, that may have failed or stuck, causing a fault to the main controller/timer. I would favor a stuck diaphragm over a hose problem... Hope this helps...
You may have 2 defective parts. First,make sure the hot and cold water hoses are connected correctly and both turned on. If the water fill problem is the same,the water temp switch is bad. The not filling after the wash cycle could be a bad lid switch. Set the machine for SPIN and turn it on. If it does not spin,replace the lid switch.
HI, you have a combination issue. the Water fill level pressure switch and, the cycle selector switch are both damaged and, they should be replaced. the total cost of these switches will run you about $90.00.
We recommend the hands of a skilled service tech when repairing this type of electrical issue.
Hi! When the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem: It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer. It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water.
