Hotpoint vbxr1090b2cc It keeps running water but won't fill
Check to be sure the drain line is higher that the tub of the washer. You have a siphon going on the drain.

It is a computer problem. My daughters machine did the same thing and the company came out and replaced the computer board and it fixed the problem.

SOURCE: Water fill level switch stops
hello chris, my name is Mike. You're in luck because this should be a fairly easy fix. Above is a link from the whirlpool website that shows the parts for your washer. If you scroll down to about page 3, you'll see a horizontal rectangular piece that is part of the console. Part number 12 is your water level switch.
This switch is easy to see if you remove the console of your washer, it has a clear plastic tube connected to it. This tube has air in it, and is connected to the lower portion of your outer tube. As the water fills, more air enters the tube (increasing pressure), and tells the washer when to quit filling per say.
You need to inspect the tubing from top to bottom to make sure there are no kinks, or a lot of the times it has just come loose from the switch, or tub. If it has you can reconnect it and retest the washer.
A defective pressure switch can interfere with the cycles that depend upon the switch to indicate when water has filled or emptied from the tub. Can also cause overfilling.
If everything is connected, there's no water in the tube, then the switch is more than likely just bad and needs to be replaced.
Chris, if you are unsure and you want to test it to be sure, just contact me anytime. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org
You will need a Volt ohm meter or a continuity tester to actually test the switch to MAKE SURE that it's bad. I can almost tell you with certainty that it is though.
Feel free to contact me anytime, and I'll be more than happy to help you out.

Sounds like the fill switch needs to be replaced. A good way to test it is to set your machine on low fill and see if it fills past 3/4. If it does, it's the fill switch.
