Turn fill water off soon.
Sounds like a major problem.
are you sure you have power at the outlet? check with other
appliance. Be careful water and electricity do not mix!
Check circuit breaker in the main panel. If poped try to reset
If pops again, call electrician.
Owner's manual troubleshooting?

You say you checked "socket" and the "fuse," did you mean the AC wall outlet (115V) and a fuse or breaker in the main power panel? Nearly all circuits involving water are protected by a Ground Fault Interrupter that can be servicing several wall outlets (perhaps one not near the washing machine) or can be located as part of a circuit breaker in your main power panel. The GFI outlets will have one or two push buttons located between the outlets and a combination GFI/overcurrent breaker will also have at least one button where others will have none. If you find one that is tripped, try resetting it. If it will not reset, unplug the washing machine and try again. If it now stays on, your machine may have an electrical path causing it to trip and using an unprotected outlet may be unsafe and an indication that the appliance itself may have electrical leakage which could be otherwise dangerous. The circuit breakers in the main power panel can also fail (they didn't 20 years ago) and we have replaced 3 in a home only 5 years old already so they are not made well anymore.
This could be any one of several problems, have you checked your power outlet from the breaker box?
Have you checked the breakers?
If you have proper power at the outlet possibly the heat element is gone.
This is a difficult machine on which to change the element, unless you feel really confident I would call a repairman.
to see whether power is getting to the washing machine. Is it plugged
in? Has a fuse blown or is a circuit breaker tripped?
the lid switch is defective, your washer can't spin and may not
function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing
near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front
of the washer to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to
Some machines have a special lid-switch fuse near
the lid switch, inside the control panel. If this fuse blows, the unit
won't fill with water until you replace the fuse.
