I have seen this problem numerous times on service calls. It sounds like you have a siphoning problem. The key symptom is the wash tub that continously attempts to fill, but cannot achieve the proper water level. This is often caused by not having an air gap on your drain line, improper placement of the drain hose, or a standpipe that is too small in diameter. The following link explains:
If you place the drain hose in the standpipe too far, or seal the top of the standpipe, this can cause a vacuum which will cause the symptoms you describe. A tell-tale sign will be a sucking noise as you pull the drain hose from the standpipe. Read through the link I provided. If this does not correct your problem please post back and let me know before you rate this solution. This way I can try to assist you further. I hope this corrects your problem.

Is your pump clear? Nothing is in the pump blocking it? Does it drain ok? Check out your pump buy removing the bottom panel..Then check you drain hose where ever it is draining into, make sure drain isnt tp far into drain, or sink becausewater will syphen back into washer...try checking these simple checks first. i think your pump has a screw in type plastic cap. unscrew and check if you have anything in it and nothing is restricting the inpeller. spin the impeller with you finger make sure it spins around freely. you will feel some tension from the magnitation it is getting. but yeah, try these simple checks first and see what happens....

Fix it. Very easy fix and the part is not expensive. What you have is a direct drive motor. For ease of maintenance the machine is made in a way which makes it possible to service it in place without having to move it. You flip the controls up and pop the retaining clips in back, unplug the lid switch harness and tip the case towards you an out of the way. You can now access the pump, motor, and that pesky drive coupling. These do simply wear out but they usually will go if a comforter is washed in it or low water big load scenario.
