Question about Washing Machines
Whenever I would turn the washer back on, it wouldn't come on in the setting I had it set on. I would have it on quick wash, but I would turned it on it would always be in the 85 mins.cycle. If I thought it had washed long enough, I would just switch it over the rinse, spin and turn off the 2nd rinse to spin it out. When it would turn off in that cycle , I would turn it on and rinse it, and I continued the process until my wash was complete. The different codes would appear, and I checked the pump, the water inlet valves, I measured less than the suggested amount of detergent. Now, I can no longer turn the power on to the washer and my clothes are locked inside
This a text book CCU failure for that machine. You will need to replace the control board. Here is the part you need to order.
The part comes with a 365 day, any part, any reason return policy.

Have you read by advice on how to diagnose this problem? Click on the following link:
If you HAVE water entering the wash tub, first verify that you do not have a siphoning condition. This is where the drain line does not have the proper air gap to drain properly and creates a vacuum on the drain line. This will cause drain problems and may prevent the washer from filling all the way. Or, you may have trouble maintaining the water level. When you stated you had water leaking, is this a visible leak? Or, do you have water slowly draining from the tub? Double check your drain line to be sure.
Next, check the drain pump to ensure it is not clogged or obstructed which minimizes drain flow. Also, make sure the pump is running. Remove the access cover and clean out the pump reservoir. In addition, check the drain line from the bottom of the wash tub to the inlet side of the drain pump. I have personally found small articles of clothing stuck in this line, preventing drain flow.
Read through the link thoroughly. If you require additional assistance, please let me know before rating the solution. I hope this helps you.

When the washer initially fills for the wash, is it only hot water entering the drum? Try switching the water temperature between hot and cold as it fills. If any of them show little or no water getting through, it sounds too easy but check to make sure water supply taps are on, and that the cold/hot fill hoses aren't reversed. Remove the fill hoses and check any of the screen filters for blockage (in the hoses and in the inlet water valve). When the machine stops and waits to fill but all you hear is a hum, it sounds like there is power going to the valve but water is not able to get through it.

Check connections at control board. and check pressure switch...pull hose off and blow through to make sure its clear...if all checks ok. could be a control board or a pressure switch, no way to tell with out power check.

you have blockage in you drain plug. to solve this problem you'll have to remove the lower front panel of your machine by removing the 3 (1/4") screws on the vary bottom of the machine. once the panel is removed you'll see a 1 1/2" white PVC drainage plug. turn the inner plug to the left in till open. (WARNING ALL THE WATER IN THE DRUM WILL DRAIN THOUGH THIS PLUG) remove debris likes socks or everything that's there replace the panel and your all set.
