The whole cabinet comes off on this washer. Too remove you need to remove 2 screws in console. These may be in back on the right and left ends of console or may be in front on each end. If you can-not find them they might be hidden under plastic end trim. They are located in front of console on both ends. To remove pry them up from the inner lower edge and peel towards outside of washer. Then remove screws and shake console back and forth while pulling up. Console will hinge back.
Remove to gold colored clips with screwdriver prying at front. Make note of the position of these clips. Unplug lid switch harness and pivot cabinet back and off. The usual spot for a leak is the pump. Check for stain coming from area on pump where motor shaft enters. The pump can be removed by taking off the 2 clips. Also check small diameter hose that enters side of wash tub in back side. Make sure this is attached to tub.

Your washer should be a direct drive unit, it has no belt. If you hear the motor running but nothing is happening you probably have a broken motor coupler. The coupler is about $10.
Pop off the trim pieces on each end of the console.
Remove the two screws that hold the console to the cabinet and flip the console back.
Remove the two clips that hold the cabinet to the rear panel of the washer and unplug the lid switch harness. The cabinet will tilt forward and slide off.
Remove the clips holding the water pump and move it to the side.
Unplug the wires from the motor and remove the clips holding it.
You will see the motor coupler.
Make sure you can turn the gearcase shaft with a pair of pliers so it is not locked up.
Post back and let me know what you find or if you need any help.

The most likely cause for water fill temperature problems is the solenoid has burned out, usually cold first, it gets used more. Not a repairable item , easy to replace
